A happy Monday morning to you, friends! Last week was so busy for us, so I appreciate the prospect of a much calmer week ahead.
On Monday, we stopped by a local orchard and got 80 pounds of apples for $20 and then met some friends at the park for lunch. I couldn't believe I was able to get apples for $0.25 a pound! If you've never heard of "seconds," they're the apples that didn't make the cut to be sold in stores. They are either too large, too small, misshapen, or blemished. These apples were beauts! With one box we made 7 quarts of cider using our cider press and canned 8 pints of applesauce, plus we saved about 18 for eating throughout the week. Not bad for $10 worth of apples!
On Tuesday, we had Bible Study and on Wednesday we ran some errands and went to a doctor appointment. Thursday was MOPs and Friday morning we went to a friend's house to learn how to make pumpkin rolls. I completely forgot to take a picture of the pumpkin roll (bad blogger!!), but it was a huge hit. I made two more yesterday to freeze for Thanksgiving. :)
This week's agenda is much calmer: Groceries, Bible Study, and the General Store for bulk dry goods will round out our week. It will be nice to have the option of spending two quiet mornings at home.
