Apple Days

 
Dearest Readers,
 
It is a beautiful, almost Fall, day here in the foothills of the Rockies...such a Colorado-blue sky! What a perfect day for "puttin' up" some delicious applesauce!
 
 My dear neighbor and friend, Lonnie, gave me a large box brimming with at least three varieties of heirloom apples from his parents old homestead.  No pesticides used and lovingly picked by hand....then delivered with love.
 
I am tucked away in my kitchen whilst my DVD "Take Peace, A Corgi Cottage Christmas" plays nearby.  I can almost feel the temperature dropping....and the snow beginning to swirl outside.  A gal can dream, can't she?
 
Well, I must put the chicken into the crockpot so that I can have the BBQ chicken ready for Dearest this evening.  The poor man will be worn to a fiddle-string by the time he returns home (he is returning from a trip to Wyoming and then straight on to referee a soccer game) and I know that a piping hot dinner will be just the thing to revive him.
 
Yours so kindredly,
Shan
 
P.S. Many splendid Tasha items are available at the Tasha Tudor and Family website.  Whilst I do not see Take Peace on their website, you might be able to find a copy at your local library or order it through Amazon here.

Another post, yay! I love to "hear" from you even more since my sweet only daughter moved to Boulder from GA last October. I miss her so much! She told me Sun about the apple trees just everywhere there! We go camping and apple-ing in 2 weeks! Angela
