|This is what our dining room table looks like - all decked out for Fall.|
To celebrate the first day of Fall, Isabel and I thought it would be fun to make caramel apples. So after her USUAL lunch of PB&J, we began.
|Her first job was to dry the apples and remove the stems.|
|She carefully dipped in the hot caramel.|
|Into the fridge to let the caramel set.|
Let it be said that parchment paper works MUCH better than buttered wax paper!
Isabel's bottom front tooth was very loose, she could almost push it out with her tongue. So while waiting for our apples to "set", I tried to pull it, but it was so stinkin' little that I couldn't get hold of it. We decided she could just eat her apple on the side.
After an hour we sat down to eat our yummy treats. They were delicious. The tart crispness of the Honeycrisp apple with the buttery, sticky, sweetness of the caramel. Pure decadence! We were two happy girls!
I made a quick trip to my office when I heard a panicky "G.R.A.N.D.M.A.!! I swallowed my tooth!!" Sure enough her bowl was empty. It must have gone down with the last bite of apple. She was a V.E.R.Y. good sport about it and I'll bet the Tooth Fairy will still make a stop at her house tonight!
The first day of Fall was a good day here. Hope it was for you too!
