A chilly fall evening and I'm tempted to start a fire in the woodstove! My husband has been gone for two weeks, helping his family in Springfield, Illinois with his 93 year old mother. He was more than ready to come home this morning. Jim comes in tonight at 11:45 PM...yawn.I made him some pumpkin muffins this afternoon and our home smells spicy and yummy. Of course I had to try them out and decided it was time to get my Teacup Thursday things together. Recently, I found a little set of Johnson Brothers Apple Harvest that I had forgotten all about. It's a cute little farm scene, somewhat whimsical.
I love apples and found this apple cookbook~yum! I think I've commented on the fact that I was born in Yakima, Washington and I love apples. I found a recipe in this book for Apple Kuchen. My German grandmother made the best Kuchen. She used to make it for my dad when she came to visit and I have to confess, I kind of nibbled it away. Sorry dad but it was just too delicious. Unfortunately, Grandma never wrote down her recipe and no one really knows how she made it. I do remember how it taste.
I had to settle for tea and a pumpkin muffin...not bad for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. Are you enjoying this autumn?
