My morning in photos (and words)

This morning started earlier than usual, but that's OK. I walked down the stairs and saw this out the front window:
The house was quiet, so I poured a bowl of the applesauce I made last night:

The Macintosh apples were in big cardboard barrel at the grocery store yesterday. They were a little bruisey and very cheap so I snatched a bunch up to peel, core and throw in the slow cooker (with some lemon juice and a stick of cinnamon. The result, three hours later, was delicious autumnal heaven in my mouth. I even went for the extra domestica points of canning some for later.
When Abby woke up, she was elated to pull up a chair to the kitchen table and wish a "good morning" to the sunflowers:

Later in the morning, three women with varying degrees of belly roundness congregated in the kitchen while wily girls ran amok upstairs, and the scent of baking bread filled the house. I enlisted their help to make fall rice krispie squares, because I'd never actually made any! They're fall rice krispie squares, because they have butterscotch chips in them, of course:

It's been a very good start to the day.

  1. Wow! What a beautiful sunrise! And I love homemade applesauce. I love it even better warmed up, with vanilla ice cream!
