OMG, this eats so good!

Nice apple with butter flavour.  Damn, I have skills.  I’m making this again!

So does it pass the Georgia Peach test?

It smells good fresh out of the heat box.  I could do a little better on sprinkling the sugar on top but it still looks good.  I think it would be great with a dollop of fresh whipped cream with a dusting of cinnamon on it.  No whipped cream so I guess I’ll hafta eat it as is.

Monday Morning

Autumn is for baking which helps make the house smell good since all of the windows are usually closed up.  Momma always said “We’re not paying to heat the outside!” which was her gentle way of saying to closet the damn doors and windows.

A redheaded Georgia Peach challenges me to bake an Applesauce cake which left me scratching my head since I don’t remember Momma or Grandma ever baking one of these.  I seem to recall some of the older neighbor ladies who grew on the farm would make them for a church social or for an afternoon tea but I don’t remember ever eating one.

So, I did a little research, found a recipe, got all of the ingredients and gave it a go today.  It looks right, it smells right and the spatula tasted pretty good after I scraped all of it into a baking dish.  We’ll see how it turns out but the house now smells of baking apples, cinnamon and cloves.

Saturday Afternoon

The feeder for the woodpeckers is up and that makes it the final thing that I need to put out for the birds for the season.  It will make the woodpeckers happy but Miss Elaine’s Wingless Tree Dragons won’t care. They’re too busy stealing from the other feeder.
