Recipe Review
May 5, 2015
Today’s Recipe and Location: Apple Peanut Butter Delights
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This is a wonderful snack food. I loved the apple peanut butter combination, and the cinnamon sugar on top just made it so flippin’ wonderful.  This is a quick snack that is easy to make.  I imagine that every kid, who is not allergic to peanuts, would love this one.

Great. The first picture is blurry.
 I think I am out of practice.
FYI - I bought wheat English muffins

This is my favorite creamy peanut butter

Ree says to spread about a Tablespoon on
each half - I went a little lighter. 

Gosh it looks good,  even now.

Now the thinly sliced apples are laid atop

Don't ya just love cinnamon sugar?

I placed the one full muffin on parchment
paper on a pie plate.
You could use a cookie sheet if
you were making several snacks.

The final toasted product. YUM!

Random Reflections – The Glorious Garden

         Yesterday, I ran over to Costco for the fourth time in two weeks to see if they received the Mandella plants. These climbers are amazing. My Mom and I used to buy them for $40.00 for a small pot, because they were tropical and rare in this area.  A couple of years ago we found them at Costco. Their plants were about three to four feet tall and quite bushy. The best part is that these giants only cost $24.99 each.  I needed five plants. What a steal!
          Unfortunately, tropicals can only remain outside when the weather is consistently above 55 degrees.  So this is the view of my dining room bay walkout window. I hope these beauties can move outside permanently next week. 

These three form a path to the door

The two complete the trail
Now they just need to grow and bloom

This is what the flower will look like soon

They will climb my 11 foot trellis

They just make me smile!

Trivial Triffles

       After shopping at Costco yesterday, I headed over to JoAnn Fabrics for the big 40% off sale on quilting fabrics.  I knew it was going to be a bad idea because I love to quilt and this was going to be an expensive trip.  Four hundred fifty some dollars later, I left with four adorable decorative storage boxes, and enough material to create 13 quilts. Okay, now I am ready to retire and begin a sewing frenzy.  Yeah for retirement, relaxation, and being in my home!

Here are six future quilts to be

Can you tell that I like bright colors?

The final two quilting materials

I fell in love with these four storage boxes!
Madonna - we could keep our knitting
supplies in these beauties.
