I have really been busy the last couple of days. My parents' apple trees are just loaded with apples. Sunday night after church, I picked a huge basket and turned them into apple butter. I made 2 batches. One on Sunday night and the other on Monday night. The good thing about this recipe is, that I can let it cook overnight and then can it in the morning before it gets too hot. Last night, we picked another huge basket and I turned those apples into apple sauce. Since I am the only one who really eats homemade apple sauce, I use what I make for my applesauce cake. I am going to be making another 2 batches, since I will be giving the apple sauce along with my recipe for Christmas this year. I love Christmas gifts that someone has actually spent time in creating. For the past few years now, we have given homemade kitchen goodies for presents.
I have not been to the grocery store this week, so I really have to go sometime tomorrow. Then I'll be going to the church to practice the piano for Sunday. I had to play last Sunday night, so I'm pretty sure, I'll be playing again this week. I have to tell a little secret... I can only play arrangements. I can't play from a Hymnal for people to sing to. I could not believe how the Lord took over my hands on Sunday and played the piano for me. What an awesome God, we serve!
