I love November, the beautiful serene landscape is full of washed out browns and greens, I love crunchy leaves under my feet and cool and crisp air that still allows you to go on long walks without absolutely freezing. The lake is like a mirror, a pale blue green calm and serene without a boat in sight. Ronen and I take long walks almost everyday, we love hiking down the LaPlattte Nature Park that sits right smack in the middle of our village behind the post office, or, we go up the trail and down the lake in Bay Park and finally our favorite, the trails at Shelburne Farms, all about 5-10 min. from our home.
Some news from home: we put final touches in or kitchen and dining room including a marble counter which we love
the living room couch is back in it's grey slipcover and the room feels nice and cozy with the wood stove burning
and finally, I gathered all the left over apples we've been picking and made a giant batch of apple sauce to give as gifts (left some for us of course, it was gone in a day...)
It's a super easy recipe, I've been making this since they boys were babies:
10 apples or more up to 15 (I use whatever variety I have at home )
1 tbs brown sugar (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of water
juice of 1 lemon
mix all ingredients together in a pot, cook until the apples are soft about 30 min., when the apples cool place in blender and blend until completely smooth.
Have a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday!
