It's A Red Saturday
Thanks to Sheila again, I pulled out the baggy of red scraps. The three little stars to add to the pile.
Then I moved on to sorting what was left into sizes for the log cabin blocks. I did a little kitchen clean-up and found my faithful helper holding down the fort.
Yeah, I pulled strips out from under that furry pile, or he would move over a little to reveal another pile of red - eventually I managed to get those log cabins finished. So I am caught up on all my Rainbow projects for the month.
The need for the kitchen clean up - I made Apple Chutney in the crock pot today. Oh, my - it smelled devine all day and the taste - FANTABULOUS!!
I browsed recipes on-line and then did my own version because this is what I had in the house:
1 pound peeled cored, chopped apples (I used 6 medium apples)
1 small peeled and diced onion
1 diced red sweet pepper
1 cup pineapple tidbits (drained)
1/2 cup of cranraisins
* put these into the crock pot
In a quart mixing bowl I mixed together:
3 slices (diced) crystalized Ginger
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. of cinnamon
* stirred well and poured over items in crock pot
Set the crock pot (with lid) on high for two hours, stirred, and then set to low heat with no lid for another 4 hours. Made 4 cups of chutney.
I will be making more of this, but this weekend it will be applesauce in the crockpot. AND that smells good too!!
Oh, my other helper - Bella playing camouflage! She has a bit of a cold so doing a lot of napping with meds.
I will be linking up with Rainbow Scrap Challenge HERE.
