Have you started your Fall decorating yet? I had my hubby get all of my totes out last week. I finally started pulling everything out on Friday. I have some stuff done, but still working on a little bit here and there. I am not pleased quite yet with my front porch so I won’t be sharing any pics yet. Here are a few of my entry way as you come in the front door.
I just love that corn that I have in my basket. I thought it looked great in my old market basket that I found at an antique mall. Here is a closer look.
I also did a little more decorating throughout my home, but I am not sure if it is going to stay there. I am not sure if you all remember the cubby in my family room. The cubby is actually suppose to be used for our television, but I don’t like it up there because it doesn’t give us a whole lot of options when we want to change our room around. So, I have the tv. on that Amish built cupboard that I re-finished a couple months back. Anyway, as I was sitting there watching tv. over the weekend, I came up with a brilliant idea. I have been trying my best to figure out a way to display my crocks or most of them. So, I thought I would re-do my cubby in my wall, add some shelves and display my crocks up there. What do you think? Here is what the cubby looks like now. Well, actually this is an old picture, but you get the just of it ~ right? Wow, that is really an old picture. So, can you imagine some of my crocks up there along with a “crock collector” sign above it? Do you all think I should paint the cubby a different color or leave it as is? So many decisions.
Please let me know your thoughts.
I also wanted to share this picture with all of you. This is a picture of my crunchy caramel apple pie that I make every year. It is a family favorite so we normally go apple picking and then make pie.
Here is the recipe…….
CRUNCHY CARAMEL APPLE PIE
Stir together brown sugar,flour, rolled oats. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until topping is like course crumbs. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.
Add apple slices and gently toss until coated. I normally toss mine in a plastic ziploc bag so they all get coated nicely.
Transfer apple mixture to the pie shell (I normally use store bought crust and just unwrap it and place it into my glass pie plate. I think the crust normally has to set at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.)
Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture.
Place pie on a cookie sheet so the drippings don't drop into your oven.
Cover edges of pie (crust) with aluminum foil. Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 25 minutes. Then remove foil and put back in for another 25 to 30 minutes without foil. Remove from oven. Sprinkle pie with chopped pecans then drizzle with caramel on top. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy warm or at room temperature
