A few weeks ago, dear friends of ours invited me and our kids to their home to make apple butter, apple crisps, or anything to do with apples.
Their home was filled with the delicious aroma of apples and one baking pumpkin. Derrick is an ace at cooking and whipped up a meat, bread and pumpkin stuffing and baked it in the pumpkin.
While the children played with their three children, the ladies peeled and sliced and stirred and cooked apples.
It was a special afternoon and a good way to use up the almost peck of apples our children had brought home from a recent field trip to a local farm.
The pumpkin meal was unique and delicious. We came home with apple butter, apple crisps and apple sauce to enjoy.
Derrick and Irene have become dear friends of ours. They are intelligent, live as green as they can and always reach out to others in need.
We are enjoying the last of autumn here in New England. The snow has melted and the last of the leaves are falling. Soon winter will come.
