This blog will return to regularly scheduled programming--
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
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...
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?
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.

"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).
