We are home and busy!

We arrived home late Monday night, just in time to see the Cubs win their game. We unpacked Tuesday, did laundry,  bought 1-1/2 bushels of apples to put up, and watched the Cubs win. I have lived my life with diehard Cubs fans.

On Wednesday, I finally bought groceries. I've been busy - the apples are almost done - the last crockpot will be done soon. I have these three apples left. I kept them to make Apple Pie Tacos, a recipe I saw online.

I've made lots of crockpot applesauce no additions, just apples, dehydrated sliced apples, dehydrated apple chips with cinnamon, and now I'm dehydrating applesauce. It supposed to turn out a little chewy. I made some plain 'blobs' and some with cinnamon. We should know how they are tomorrow.

I've tried a couple other recipes this week too. This Cheesy Baked Asparagus was good. We aren't big on asparagus but we'd both eat this again.

I also made Butternut Squash Au Gratin. We really liked it but it makes LOTS! We've had it twice. I'm thinking about freezing the rest for later. That's bacon on the top.

Two of the grandkids' quilts need to have the binding sewn down, another is pinned and ready to quilt.

We are leaving on a short trip Monday celebrating my birthday. We are headed to Hamilton, Missouri to the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I'm packing light - I might need room in the van for all of my purchases!


  1. I'm eating an apple as I type - love this time of year. :) blessings, marlene

  2. Oh, apple season! I did an apple crisp last night.... had the last two servings for lunch =). Busy, busy.... leave lots of room for purchases - it is a birthday trip after all! happy early birthday.

  3. Apple Pie Tacos? Now that sounds like my kind of tacos! ha! Going to Hamilton to see MSQC is on my to-do list. DH is agreeable ... I need to find a date when we should go before winter (and snow) arrives. I'm happy that your team won, even if it was at the expense of my team. Good luck to them vs the Mets.
