Apple Dumpling recipe…..

You Need:

~Peeled, cored and sliced apples

~Your favorite pie dough


~Cinnamon sugar

Roll out a piece of dough that is about the size of a golf ball. Place a apple in the middle and put 1/2 T. butter in the middle of the apple; then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Wrap the dough around the apple. Freeze.                                

To Serve:     (for 5-9 dumplings) Place the dumplings in a 9"X13" baking pan.  Mix together, ~1C. sugar, 1 heaping T. of flour,  1 t. cinnamon.  Stirring quickly add 2 C. hot water.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes.  Serve with icecream! (And chocolate for the chocolate lovers  )  



Our side bar is causing problems!!!  Any advice would be helpful!

If someone clicks on a friend it will bring them to their site…but to the entry that was there when we added them.  Why?  How can we fix it??  HELP! 


Now for the horrifying pictures of our stove…we just cleaned it today after all of our canning (which means lots of stuff spilling over!!).  I don’t think there has ever been a dirtier stove in the world!!!

Before…    (Someone told us that it looks like it exploded!  I agree!!  )

And after!!…

Does that look like the same stove?!?!



Does this scare you?!?! 

A scarecrow that Annie, Bekah and Charissa made…I added the "head".   When they first made it, they laid it on top of the hay in the barn.  So it scared everyone that went out to feed animals (including me) !!! : )  Even now, (it is still sitting on top of the fence) when I go outside it startles me : ) Although it lost its head  


Our leaves are starting to turn!!!! I love fall!!!!  Here are a few pictures that the younger girls took:



This is in the front yard where our really pretty tree is.


This is the woods behind the field that is behind us.

Noah and Isaiah recently discovered their firemen hats…Noah insists that the back is the front… Isaiah just has it sideways!

    Here, need help getting 100 comments? πŸ™‚

    The view from your place is so pretty! Ah, I have good memories of IN. πŸ™‚ I went there last year for a friends wedding in Indianapolis.

    Oh dear! — had your stove been like for a while, or did something just spill over suddenly and it was cleaned up right after? : I

    Thanks for your comment! And thanks for replying so soon, a landrover is a British kind of jeep it is 4 wheel drive and is mainly used on farms. Is that what the ones are like in America, I didn't know you had British vehicles in America, I know we have some American vehicles where we live.

    Is the playlist partly the trouble with your side bar? Well, did you know that you can put the playlist on a different part of your blog not just your side bar? at the top above all the entries or at the bottom below all the entries,

    bye for now

    Wow, your stove totally looks better now! I LOVE your scarecrow! We have one sitting in the rocking chair on our front porch! We made him last year and it is a little startling to see him if you aren't expecting him!

    I don't see anything wrong with your sidebar. I went to a few of the blogs on it, (including mine) and all of them were on the latest post. I don't think I could help you anyway. Maybe my older brother could, if y'all are still having problems later I'll ask him what to do, OK.

    ALL of those pictures are adorable, including the stove that exploded. Our poor stove went through something like that when we were making vegetable soup in a rush one time. πŸ™‚

    That scarecrow is very nice, and creative:)

    Hope you stop by my new blog!

    Have a Great Day!

    Hi Cassia! My, that dream you enountered sounds… interesting! LOL Dreams can be so bizzare sometimes… a mixup of thoughts in a virtually unconscience state (sleep) πŸ™‚ I wonder who it really was…..

    Anyhow — what have you been up to lately? Today I cleaned. Friday is our big house cleaning day, and it normally always takes me a very long time for some reason :). But this time I literally cleaned all day. I finished a little while ago, and now here I am, glad to have some free time.

    It is my parents anniversary as well, and I was planning on making a cake in celebration, but I think that instead Michaela is going to bake up some chocolate chip cookies.

    Well gotta run! Have a great evening!

    Hey Cassia! πŸ™‚

    Oh, the deal at that bookstore sounds like so much fun! I understand what you mean about romance novels. Our family has made a pact not to read any of that stuff.

    How on earth did you clean that stove?!?! I agree too that it looks like it exploded! However you did it it looks almost new.
