Apples were on sale again…
I just had to make a pie.
The filling is just apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter.
It turns into the most delicious sweet and tender filling.
The crust gave me a little trouble this time…
But since I wasn’t going for perfect….
I was ok with it.
The smell of apple pie baking in the oven. . .
You just can’t hardly wait for the pie to be done . . .
. . . So you can take it out and have a piece.
Enjoy the apples while they’re in season!
6-7 apples peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
6 Tb butter
Pie Crust (you can either make your own or use frozen)

I will probably share many more photos soon, but I just had to post a few…
We woke up to a snow blanket covering our part of the world.
Can’t wait to run outside (with my many layers of clothing on) and take many pictures!!

I’m in Ohio, and it has been snowing on & off since yesterday…
I ran outside with my cell phone and took pictures of the beautiful setting…
I left my favorite one for last:
Enjoy the weather,
And have a wonderful weekend!

I went to a cute little County Fair this past weekend.
My favorite part is always the animals…
I have to tell you, though, I was very disappointed to learn that the chickens and roosters were not scheduled to arrive for another 3 days! That is always my favorite section!
Oh well, maybe next time…Sigh…
They also had an old building filled with different kinds of historical displays…
I was so excited when I saw some quilters demonstrating the art of hand quilting. It was fun talking to them.
There was also different sewing machines from the early 1900s
Outside, there was a large display of different kinds of machinery and other “vehicles”
It was a fun time, just walking around, enjoying the different areas. It was a small fair but there was something for everyone… Rides, food, contests,…
There were several groups performing at various stations and I enjoyed listening to them.
I’ll leave you with a picture of these two sweeties…

I went to the hardware store to get something we needed for the house. When I returned I found that my husband had been busy…
I walked in… and was pretty much speechless…he was smiling so big, happy because he knew I (eventually) wanted to work on the kitchen…
I hugged him, thanked him, and then we both sat down and said, “Now what?!”
And so, the fun begins. I’ll show you (soon) some pictures of what we’ve been up to and how things are coming.
Eagerly counting the days until the kitchen is once again in working order,

I have been missing out all these years…
A cast iron skillet makes cornbread (among other things) so much better!
I know, I know, …where have I been?!
Everybody, EVERYBODY has a cast iron skillet.
But now, (thanks to my daughter, who helped me see the benefits) I will be getting one.
Maybe even before I unpack all those boxes from our move? . . .
