What do you do when you know your apples are going to go bad any second now?
You make apple cobbler and you make it fast.
Hope you weren’t thinking you would simply just eat the apples. Because at this time of the year, making apple cobbler is the only answer that makes sense.
Yes, even those of us who are in Alabama (where there currently is no snow) still want some apple cobbler. Some of us still get cold when it’s 50 degrees outside and would appreciate something hot and yummy to warm our insides.
Here’s week four of my 2013 Project Life album. I’m still waiting to receive my Seafoam Core kit, so for now I’m just finding free downloadable 4×6 & 3×4 cards to put in my album and I’m also using some cards from my Turquoise core kit. For this week I used two free cards from Kimberly Church. (more…)
The stories you read here on the blog are usually pieced together in my brain while I’m in the kitchen baking away. I had a hard time deciding on what to write about when posting this soda bread. The reason being because it brings so many ideas to mind. Should I post about the buttermilk I used to make this with and how Rob hates buttermilk? Should I post about how Rob’s grandfather loves buttermilk and drinks a glass of it everyday? Should I post about Nine Irish Brother’s restaurant (NIBR)and how they serve soda bread and our obsession with eating there? Should I post about Rob’s group of friends, known as “The Legion” and how they would always eat at NIBR and everyone would fight over the soda bread?
So many choices people, SO MANY CHOICES. I could write about everything, but then it would be a 5 page post, and none of us have time for that, so I’ll hold back.
I’m finally getting a hang of this “cooking for two” wife thing.
I used to dread preparing whole meals. Like, my senior year of college, I didn’t even know how to prepare chicken. I bought a chicken breast, chopped it into pieces, cooked it in a skillet and then took a picture and sent it to my sister asking what I was supposed to do next.
The next phase was when I was talking to an older lady at church and somehow we got on the topic of domestic-ness. I told her that “I, like, don’t know how people make meals every single day of the week with things that they find in their kitchen!” She then said, “Well, you plan out your recipes ahead of time and then go grocery shopping for the ingredients”.
Two things happened on this particular week. Cooper turned one year old – WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE? And I participated in Aviation Spouse Day – where I got my wings!
Other than that, there’s a random picture of Rob working on his lego VW bus and a shot of us together…because you can’t never have too many pictures of you and your husband together. Ever.
I used my newly created mini calendar for this spread. I unintentionally went with a B+W theme when putting things together. It all worked out and I think it looks GREAT!
The quote card is from Elise Blaha’s collection – I resized it to make it fit in a 4”x6” slot. The other blurb cards are ones that I made in photoshop myself. Pretty simple week.
