My 100th InstaFriday post! Another week in iPhone photos and Instavideo.
Pugs like green smoothie.
I was purging my bookshelves this week and came across this old friend. I think I read Little Women for the first time in 2nd grade. This copy was given to me by my paternal grandmother not long after. It is a 1902 edition with a red hardback cover. Her bookplate is still in the front cover from when she was young.
Grocery bag full of apples from my grandma’s apple trees. Destined to become delicious apple butter.
Going to bed on National Dog Day. Typical. Paw to the face. As long as he’s comfy!
With the help of an apple peeler/corer/slicer and a slow cooker this apple butter was a total breeze to make. I let it cook overnight and in the morning I pulsed it a few times with an immersion blender and it was ready for canning. 10lbs of apples yielded about 6 pints of apple butter. Now I have to decide if I will be nice and share my jars or hoard it all for myself.
HGTV’s House Hunters filmed a scene at the pet store where I work. We drove up to see the process, and Pug may make a cameo when the episode airs. I will post more info if and when I get it!
Pug wore a neck tie to the filming but when we got home he switched it up in honor of National Bow Tie Day.
