Apple Mistake That We Made Last Year

We pretty much lived on apple pies last year because the trees were just so heavenly laden. What we didn't know is that you are supposed to pull off about half of the apples so that you don't stress the tree. You are going to have to look this one up, because this year, our trees aren't providing us with even one apple... except for the Crab Apple Trees.  And it looks like we are going to have to do some thinning out of those trees too.  None of us had any idea that you were supposed to do this, until we found ourselves with apple-less trees this year and we went searching to find out why!

I think that I began to love quotes when I began to thumb through my mom's Women's Day magazines. They always devoted an entire page to quotes that were sent in by their readers. They were so thought provoking. I always looked forward to reading them.

I Love Cookie Cutters

Yesterday I bought myself a cookie cutter that was in the shape of a flower. I couldn't help thinking about all the cookies I could bake this month and then decorate with pink and yellow frosting and all kinds of sprinkles. I don't think that anyone would even notice if I forgot to add the salt to the dough.  Yes, I have done that a few times!!!

Discard Old Tea Towels

I must have 50 tea towels, but a lot of them are really getting threadbare and maybe it's time to put them into the car washing bag of rags. They really aren't making my kitchen a pretty place to work in. And if you are worried about ever running out, don't even think about it. Just put it on your Christmas list and watch your linen closet fill us with fresh new one!

Under The Kitchen Sink

It really is a mistake to just shove those bottles under there and expect them to stay nice and tidy. You just know that the one you are going to want next is going to be way at the back and it has fallen over and leaked...
Instead, grab a caddy or a little tote and store them all inside. When you need a cleaner, just pull out the entire tote and pick out what you need.

Peaches... A Super Easy Dessert

They come out of a can!  I need cans for the garden as I'm growing cantaloupe, so I  opened the can of peaches this morning and that is what will be the basis of all of our desserts this week. My favorite is Peach Short Cake but the simplest will be peaches and chocolate ice cream... you really have to try it!

Am Update on Bananas!

I happen to be pre-diabetic so I really have to watch my sugar intake so I thought that I would share this with you.  If you are watching your sugar as well, choose the bananas that are still firm. They have the least amount of sugar in them while still maintaining the potassium that you really do need! And... they fill you up!
