I've also got crockpot cinnamon applesauce simmering away right now...we went apple-picking a few weeks ago and we still have a lot of apples. This is delicious too! 6-8 apples, 1 cup of water, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar (I mix white and brown). Stir together and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Smoosh any chunks with the back of a spoon.
Ran into a little snafu with my quilt binding. I thought I'd attempt making bias binding out of striped fabric. I am totally not getting how to cut the strips to have the stripes going the same way. Is there a secret I don't know about? Do I just have a stripe defect? Anyway I think I may have had just enough fabric but after a few cutting mistakes, it was time to go to plan B. Which I didn't have. So I dug into my stash and found a pretty blue polka dot that I used to make my niece's Christmas present. Polka dots are better than stripes anyway. Pbbbt! My friend Michele says that there are polka dot people and there are stripe people, and we decided we are the former. Whatever that means.
On my way home from Wal-Mart this morning, I was bopping away to "Party in the USA" and I was horrified to learn that it's sung by Miley Cyrus. Really? I like a Hannah Montana song? Eek! That will totally embarrass my daughter.
The kiddos will be home soon...have a great day!
