We spent quite a time today and got an entire bushel of apples made into applesauce..a little bit of work but it sure makes the house smell wonderful and tastes so good..didn't add anything to it either, neither sweetener nor cinnamon ..we haven't canned it yet..the apples we got were seconds..perfect for sauce but a little tedious to peel for pies and such...they were about the size of a tennis ball....

Right now, Alan and the boys are working on the locksmith van, getting it ready to go into action soon...it had broken down during the fire time and just been sitting but they are slowly getting it back into running shape. Alan got new tires on it last week and now are working on the brakes....nice to have young men to help him. He really couldn't do it on his own as he's still watching over his finger healing.The boys are such a blessing!

Our youngest also mowed the front yard and edged it so it looks nice again......after the rain we had last week, it needed to be mowed..he also moved our next door neighbors front yard as they are on vacation...good kid, huh?
Last night we had fish and chips....have you eaten the new sweet potato french fries that are popular now? We got them at Costco..they are simply wonderful....I did a google search and you can make these at home too...it was so much easier just getting them already to go......I put a link in so you can see Paula Deen's recipe...


Alan likes these better than regular fries.....you do have to eat them right away..just like potato fries, they are rather bleak when cold.....
