I hope everyone made it home in one piece last night. Or did you stay home and hand out candy? I had a quiet night as our neighborhood gets shut down tight at 8 p.m. Out came the blockades and all 4 of the Nichols Hills Police and it was lights out!
Today’s tea is brought to you by Celestial Seasonings Caramel Apple Dream. And what a dream it is. My first cup was just tea. My second cup was stirred with one of those caramel sour apple lollies. The third was with a
tiny amount of caramel mixed in and that was sinful. I am definitely baking with this one. Caramel Apple Bars sound nice.
The tiny terrorists hit up Mesta and came home stuffed with all kind of goodies. Corbin called to ask if I knew the difference between candy and vitamins. Cause some people put adult medicines in candy. And razor blades in apples. Good Lord, that was going around when I was a kid.Apparently they had a class on bad candy. He was not happy with his Daddy who told him NO to hanging out in the cemetery to pay homage to the dead. Lord help us all!
It was Fall when I opened the door this morning. Bright sunshine, leaves falling, and cold! I have been busy today. Cleared out all of the Halloween decorations. Roasted a Butternut Squash and made this delicious Butternut Squash and Apple Soup for tonight.
I sprinkled a bit of nutmeg on it. Then I grabbed my neighbor and asked her to taste it for me, as I thought it was freaking awesome! So did she! And it was so easy I didn’t even burn up a pot!
I split the squash and cooked it flesh side down with 1/2 a cup of water and stuck it in the oven for about 20 minutes. In my blender I put a cup of Organic Vegan Vegetable Stock, 2 Honeycrisp apples chopped up, the flesh of the squash and some cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger and blended it all together. To re-heat make sure you put your burner on low. But really how much easier can you get?
The plumber never showed up! Thank goodness one of my handy friends found the issue and it took him like 3 minutes to fix it.
Off to send out my monthly tea cards. If you would like one, send me an address! Seriously y’all I’m running out of room and just received a huge box. On the first I send a different sample out so email me at email@example.com!
