Sunday Salon: Almost (But Not Quite) Monday Salon
I read One Bad Apple by Sheila Watson (review to come) today, and I loved it. There are several apple-centric recipes in the back of the book; one for apple muffins looks particularly good. I'm definitely going to try that out, even though my baking skills are a bit suspect. Cookies I can do, no problem, but I've never been brave enough to try to make muffins, pies or cakes from scratch. Apparently I made some killer apple crisp in preschool but I have very little memory of this. I think the teacher did most of the work and had the class "help", and then sent the recipe and some of the apple crisp home with all of us. My mom insists it was the best apple crisp she's ever had. I'll have to see if she still has that recipe somewhere. I love apples and should really stop relying on McDonald's apple pies for my apple cravings...
Time to start getting ready for bed. Hopefully the coverage of the political conventions won't run as late as the Olympics, or I'm going to be seriously sleep-deprived over the next couple weeks! Four years ago I could easily stay up till 3 AM and not bat an eye; now 11 PM rolls around and I'm ready to call it a night.
