Luckily, the football games went as they were supposed to, i.e. Penn State beat a ranked Northwestern team and the Steelers were able to pull off a win against the Eagles. Can I just say how amazingly proud I am of Penn State football this year? These student athletes have had to endure more than most adults do in their lifetime, and they are persevering like no other. Truly an inspiration to me.
I started with six large local Jonagold apples from the farmer's market. The key to apples in homemade applesauce is picking sweet ones. Red delicious are also great but they were not available at the market, so Jonagold it was.
*6 large apples (any 'sweeter' apple will work well)
*1/2 cup water
*1/8 cup sugar
*1 tbsp cinnamon
Peel, core and chop the apples and place them into a slow cooker. Add water, sugar and cinnamon and mix. Cook on high for 2 hours and then reduce to low for 2 hours. Enjoy warm or cold. Makes four servings.
A few weeks ago, we picked up some fresh haddock that was caught just north of Edmonton. With food prices being so expensive around here, the case of haddock seemed like a steal, so it came home with us and into the freezer. And for some reason - why is beyond me, as I can't stomach fried food well if at all - I decided fish and chips seemed like the perfect idea. Actually, fish and onion rings. Not chips.
And today, we join the gym :)
