Recent Events II + the WORD on Wednesday

This blog will return to regularly scheduled programming--
sometime.
But recently Aimee has been busy
sharing her hubby's clam chowder at the coast.
And she has been...
traveling new hilltop roads in search of an elusive covered bridge
(but the views were awesome).
And Aimee has been busy...
gathering up the culinary lavender from her own yard
which has been drying on a line under the kiwi arbor...
which, by the way, are really BIG this year:)
And this gal has been making some very, very yummy apple butter today
By the way, beware of the hubby with a mug and spoon in his hand
AND
hunger in his eyes
(of course who can blame him as the sweet smell of apples, sugar, spice
and more spreads through the house).
Mental note to self:
contact Momzoo and ask her how one is to get any sleep with that yummy smell permeating all corners of the house:)
And before the apple butter,
the trip to the coast,
the search for the elusive covered bridge,
Aimee was busy making apple pie filling...
and
slicing a lot of apples
(a lot by my standards)
and eating quite a few too.
And Aimee has been busy
working on her other blog
and spending way too much time working on her family history.
She is also working on yard stuff
(but mostly her best friend is)
And did I say
peeling, slicing + coring a lot of apples!
 
Yes Aimee has been busy...
busy having FUN:)
 
What have you been up too?
 
Blessings,
Aimee
 
The WORD:
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.
Genesis 1:11-13 KJV
 
Notes:
Mo's clam chowder
(yum)
somewhere in rural Oregon
(more shall be revealed)
one of two bags of dried culinary lavender
(Yum! Made some lemon lavender sugar cookies too)
applesauce on the way to becoming yummy apple butter
(this is after about 5 hours in a crock pot, mostly on low)
easy, easy apple pie filling ready to be frozen
(I am SO hungry for apple pie)
apple slices taking a lemon water bath--LOL
my favorite kitchen tool right now.
 
Recipes:
Easy, easy pie filling
(link to original poster, Julia also)
"Crock pot" apple butter
Lemon lavender sugar cookies
No recipe really...
I just added a little organic lemon juice and some dried culinary lavender (about 2 tsp or so) to a
cookie mix I had bought some time ago. I was craving lavender that day...
(my hubby actually ate them).

Hey, Teresa
Enjoying our late summer sunshine? I am really craving apple pie and other apple desserts too--and soon I will be wanting pumpkin too:) What kind of apple pie did your mom make? My mom was a good cook too--miss her:(

The cookies were good--better than just plain sugar ones. Of course to add to my calories (yikes) I had to add some frosting to them.

How did I miss your chowder recipe? I will have to check again-I love the creamy kind my hubby ordered but have to limit myself to just a few bites--oh the joys of lactose intolerance...

Have a great Friday! Thanks for visiting:)

Blessings always,
Aimee
