Project 365 ~ Week 42

After buying 1-1/2 bushels of apples at the apple orchard it was time to make apple sauce. The great thing about having chickens in our back yard is I don't feel so wasteful anymore. This container of apple cores and peels went to the chickens and they loved it. They got apple scraps for 3 days straight and every time I went outside they all ran to me.We went to this really cute little Ma and Pa (hole in the wall) place to eat. It's not too far from our house and it's right next to a Walmart. The food was good, the prices were doesn't get much better than that. I ended up making tons of apple sauce, apple pie filling, this apple crisp and Caramel Apple Breakfast Casserole. It was all so delicious. I have an entire shelf in the freezer with apple sauce and apple pie filling to use throughout the next year.
I received this free magazine in the mail and I saw this picture and right away thought it would be cute to make a pilgrim hat card. Here is how it turned out. Not sure if I like it or not but I only made two of them so I am sure I can use them this Thanksgiving.
I need to get working on making lots of Christmas cards. I still have no idea what style card I want to make for our Christmas card this year. These cards I made I am going to take to my sister, if she wants them. If she doesn't want them then I will sell them. I thought they turned out cute!
Mike and I went to the Cumming Fair on Friday night. It was cold but we had a great time. We enjoyed fair food and our favorite ride. I took a picture of this stand because it seemed out of place for a fair. They were selling filet mignon, shrimp, lobster and more. Does this seem strange to anyone else?Saturday we headed to the Dahlonega Gold Rush Days which has tons of craft booths. We love walking around and looking at all the different things. We didn't actually buy anything this year but it was still lots of fun. The food options here were numerous but I took a picture of this specific place because I was amazed at how many things they deep fry now. Did you know you can get deep fried candy bars, Reese's peanut butter cups, oreos and twinkies. What will they think of next?
