Bountiful Blessings - Part 2

You'll have to forgive me for not writing anything the last couple days. Time has gotten away from me and some things just HAD to be done. They say pictures say a thousand words, so I'll let this picture do the talking!
There are four more five-gallon buckets, FULL of apples, waiting in the garage to replace these. We have been so blessed! My husband works on a golf course, so Monday night we loaded up and went and picked from the apple trees that are on the golf course. What fun! My only regret, is that I didn't bring my camera! We had ladders and poles and golf carts surrounding us and children running around... some even driving golf carts! (Yes, I think I have a few grey hairs mixed in with this blond) We had a fun time though and now the fun continues at home! Stay tuned for some great apple recipes, after I've experimented with them myself. Happy Harvest from our Home to Yours!

Those apples are beautiful and would love to taste one right now. Apples are one of my favorite which reminds me of a favorite receipe. If you want a happy husband tonight, here's one of his favorite's as a child:

APPLE CRISP
6-7 medium apples sliced or chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup orange juice
CRUMB TOPPING:
2/3 cup flour
2/3 stick margarine
1/2 cup sugar
Combine sugar,cinnamon,and flour and mix with apples. Arrange in pan and pour orange juice over apples. For topping, combine flour and sugar and cut in margarine until consistency of cornmeal. Spread over apples and pat down to form crust. Bake in hot oven 30 minutes or until apples are done. (Hint: can use brown sugar instead of white and can add raisins) I make it in an oblong casserole dish and sometimes add more apples. YUMMY with Homemade Bluebell Vanilla IceCream

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
