I think one of the most blessed parts of homemaking
is to provide special good wholesome food
for our families and those we love.
I think there is a taste of home.
Foods that remind us of that special time at home.
It's the season for apples again.
Today one of my daughters and I sliced up a big bowl of apples.
I love doing these kinds of tasks with my children.
Some apples were mixed with brown sugar and cinnamon,
some went into a big and small pies,
and some into the dehydrator.
I don't usually take time to make hand-pies
but today just felt like it was a day for some.
I don't cook them as crispy as some others,
but this is the way our family likes them.
To me as I keep my home I try to consider what my family enjoys.
I believe that we need to consider our families
tastes as well when we cook.
Sometimes it's nice to just cook what we like...
but it's not fun to eat alone.
Here is a picture of the lovely white lard that
I grated up for the pie crust.
So lovely and it made for a delicious crust.
I also have been snitching the last of the flowers
from the garden to enjoy in the house.
Pansies are my all time favourite
even though I do love so many.
Then the dusty miller fern is so perfect
to go along with them.
I love how both of these plants do so well with the frosty weather.
A special little delight
that sits in the kitchen window and smiles
at you as you work :)
For the winter I also found this sweet sedum plant.
It's found a home in the kitchen for now.
What kinds of special touches have you added
to your home this week?
Do you like to bake treats for your family?
Do you like to bring in plants and flowers into your home?
Praying you have a beautiful day!
Love and Prayers,
