Time for a nap
I believe we might be breaking down and turning on the furnace tonight. I’m pretty sure I may have been blue when I got out of the shower this morning. Definitely not a shave-my-legs type of morning, but wait who I’m kidding…it rarely is. TMI? Sorry.
This weekend I did a lot of work in the garden, starting to tuck it in for its winter nap. Temps here are likely to drop below freezing in the next few nights, so I figured I better harvest what I can and go ahead and clean up. Pretty much only two of the eight raised beds remain with growing goods.
My work was closely supervised by this guy. Looking so attentive, I sure wuv my doodle.
I also clipped a bunch of hydrangea blooms and laid them out to dry. I hope to get around to hanging them tonight to complete the drying process. Then maybe some crafty project down the road with these.
In the morning while it was still chilly outside, I did some baking. I honestly had a lot of fun making these Apple Pie Cookies from Smitten Kitchen.
Not a huge fan of traditional apple pie, I sure had fun eating them too though. I ate three of these babies yesterday. Super delicious. Tyler loved them too.
I took these over to my grandparent’s for Dad’s bday dinner with Grandpa’s famous Chinese spread. <—Yum. Grandma made Apple Crisp and Apple Cake with Rum Sauce, so we definitely did not have an apple shortage.
As much as I like these, I refused to bring them home. Too much sugar makes me a pain…literally, I get all achy when I eat lots of sweets with refined sugar and I’ve had my fair share of the stuff lately.
But dang it…I sure wish I had just one left. Oh so flaky and sweet.
I’ve been hitting it lucky with the baking. The past few things I’ve tried have been great and these are absolutely no exception. Please make these this fall and please visit Smitten Kitchen for the recipe. Follow her instructions and you will have absolutely no problem with this little treat.
Happy Baking (and gardening)!
