Anderson Apple Orchard and got our annual apple slushie, caramel apples and Winesap apples. I love going there - last year we picked raspberries - doesn't seem like that was a year ago.
Scott framed my Renato Parolin Easter tree - I absolutely love it!! He found the frame at Hobby Lobby - original price was $187.00 - he got it for 90% off!! Great price because the frame is perfect! Scott had to cut it down first - turned out FANTASTIC!!!

haunted house so I tried it. Working with a curved needle is hard and weird but it makes it so much easier to attach these pieces!! Thanks to Wendy for the curved needle idea - made my life easier!!
2 cups Riesling
2 cups brandy
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 lb dried apricots
Mix first three ingredients until sugar dissolves. Pour evenly into two mason jars. Add half a pound of apricots to each jar. Shake periodically for three weeks. Then you drain off the alcohol and store it in the fridge - apricot liqueur. You can dip the fruit in chocolate. Makes great Christmas gifts according to the article. Now I have to wait 3 weeks - exciting!!
The other recipe they had was roasted beet hummus - usually Sunset magazine is great about posting recipes online but I wasn't able to find either of these to link to. If you would like the beet recipe just email me and I will send it to you. It is pretty good but the most fun part was the color!!
Blissful Butternut Squash I used leftover butternut from my freezer - also used curry instead of nutmeg - delicious!! I served it with super healthy (not) sausage and homemade pierogis - perfect Fall dinner!! Scott actually finished the soup and cooked the sausage and pierogis!! Fresh Baked Italian Bread I had some trouble with the recipe - you have to use a lot more flour than it calls for. You just have to make it the way she says and be prepared to add more flour. I think I added over a cup more - and could have added a little more! It tastes good though so I can't complain!
The wind has covered the yard with leaves again - oh bother. I'm too sore to care right now though!! The next place we buy will be a condo - no yard work!!
Hope you have a perfect Fall week - with only a little raking - just to get you ready for shoveling haaaaaa!!!
