free and healthy
what an awesome weekend. i was pretty much completely and totally FREE! lots of time spent reading, and sitting in a sunbeam, and walking in the crunchy leaves that have gathered around the yard (not picked up yet :)) and just lounging. i know that i should have done a bunch of chores, but i'm really not sorry that i didn't ...
i did find an awesome score on craig's list on saturday. free apples. on a curbside, and i was able to take about 3 dozen, i suppose, from a much larger bounty that they were offering. i have kind of been hoping someone would drop more free apples my way.
these were tart and large, pretty perfect for applesauce. homemade applesauce is heavenly. i like mine slightly lukewarm, with a dollop of cream and a pinch of brown sugar on top, so that it sort of tastes like a baked apple.
super easy to make, too, i just peel/core my apples (as you can see i did not exactly peel all of them. then, cook until soft on the stove, and run thru a foley food mill to get out any extra peels and make smooth.
i could not find my foley food mill for anything. perhaps i am imagining that i even have one, but i don't think so. they are necessary :))
anyway, i have some chunky applesauce with a few peels in it. i noticed that my hero margaret from a way to garden makes it that way anyway. somehow, that makes it not a mistake, but a plan ;)
now it's a monday holiday! and another beautiful day, from the look of things. happy everything, everyone ;)
