...an apple a day


keeps the doctor away...


Apples and Autumn just GO together, don't they.

I like apples just about any way they are fixed...
and raw is good, too.

 I had 2 pretty large ones that really needed to be made
into some kind of APPLE DELIGHT...


and fresh apple muffins are about as delightful as you can get.




 My sweet, caring blogging friend, Michele, that lives
at THE NEST AT FINCH REST
sent me this sweet candle holder...
and she made the pumpkin card.
"Thanks so so much, Michele....I just love them...
and I love you, too."

  1. Glad to see a post BJ. Hope that you are doing well my friend.

    The apples look so good and you made me think of fried apples, yum yum. Will have to get some and make it as a side dish.

    Nothing exciting going on here. You take care my friend.

    Love and hugs,
    Mary

  4. BJ, I have missed your wonderful cooking . You are so good at making things that just fit the season. I bought two bags of apples, thinking, they do go with the season. Then I bagged most of them up and took them to my daughter's. LOL. I cut some up into a salad today and added craisins too. It was delicious. I have made apple crisp also. :):) Now I am thinking muffins. :):) Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  14. So good seeing your special cooking skills again. It is slower for some to cope than others, but you are doing okay. Think of you more than you know. Going to my sisters Thursday for a few days. Take care and hang in till I get back.

  15. BJ, It's wonderful to see you posting again . . . and who doesn't love apples :) That saying is actually very true, eating a fresh apple everyday keeps our systems cleaned out and in great working order. Maybe not the most pleasant thing to say about apples, but as we get older, very important, LOL.
    Have a glorious day!
    Connie :)

  16. Oh yes, apples are an Autumn delight! We had an orchard when I was growing up. And we had a U Pick. I remember being the money taker. We sure met a lot of people. We had ref and yellow delicious apples. Probably why their still my favorites ! At the end of the season we'd pick what was left, wrap them in newspapers an d store them in the basement for a winter treat!!! Those muffins look wonderful. What a lovely gift from your friend.

    Love and miss you

  22. Wasn't that sweet of Michele? She is such a dear one, and I got to meet her, bj!
    I also saw your cake that you made in your previous post and it sure looked good to me. I was happy that you had some left over to enjoy the next day.
    p.s. I have a new granddaughter, Hayden Catherine, and her middle name is named after me...my "real" name is Catherine!
