Now, if you don't know what that means, no judgement. I tend to use this term quite freely and assumed that everyone knows what I mean by 'Hump Day', but realized after a couple of puzzled looks from people in my office that this might not be the case.
Hump Day (according to Anna): Wednesday, the proverbial 'hump' at the middle of the week - its all downhill from here folks! (meaning its going to be a breeze, easy, and not going down in quality...remind me never to try and define anything again ;)
One of the things that I love about visits with my padre, other than seeing him and the rest of the fam (which is numero uno, obvi), but also that I can access awesome pics from my Stepmom, who has become a total whiz of a camera-lady.
Here are a few of my favs from the weekend:
Thought I was in Paris for a sec
The beautiful foliage at the Champlain Lookout in Chelsea, QC
Me and the boys - Alec, Jemerie, Popster, Lukas and I
At the locks connecting the Ottawa River and the Canal
When the fam visited this weekend, they brought me a basket of apples from a tree in their backyard. I was brainstorming what to make with them, and realized that I haven't had applesauce in a while. So, I put on some 30 Rock and started peeling.
Prettiest little apples :)
I peeled and cored all of the apples, and then diced them
I brought the apples, cinnamon, lemon and water to a boil
And then let it simmer for about 20 minutes until all of the apples were nice and mushy
I took the lemon wedge out and then mashed it all up!
I had a taster bowl while it was still warm - AMAZING!
It honestly tastes sugary enough from the natural sugar in apples, and the zest from the lemon really balances it out. I ended up adding another extra dash of cinnamon before eating it. So good.
A delicious treat for a cool fall evening :)
