Hey you – Yes, you…
I’m leaving… On a jet plane… I thought you should know.
I’ll be back in a week. I’m headed to the Motherland, meaning the Dominican Republic. Yea, I’m from there. I’m going to get my fill of humid island air and way too many cocktails.
I’ll be sure to bore you with photos of my family, food, and beer when I get back. It’s going to happen… There’s totally nothing you can do about it.
While I’m gone I thought I’d give you something to do. It’s not fall yet, but I’ll be back September. That’s kind of like fall.
So while I’m guzzling crazy copious amounts of piña coladas and Presidente beer, I’d like you to do two things:
1. Buy yourself a wicked cool fall scarf.
Why? Because you should own a wicked cool fall scarf.
Why? Because when I get back you and I are making apple butter bars. No, really – We are… I’m just trying to give you a head start, is all.
This apple butter is so good. And easy! I used granny smith apples, which make for a very tart apple butter. It’s all good, though… I loves me some tartness. You can use any other cooking apple. Mix and match. Go crazy with the spices! I added a bit of ginger and freshly grated nutmeg.
That’s how I roll…
My mom ate a whole jar in one morning. It’s that good.
I ate a whole jar by myself… Like a total porker.
You didn’t need to know that, but I was illustrating a point. Showing you my porker skillz…
So to recap:
- Buy a wicked cool fall scarf.
- Make this apple butter.
- We’re making apple butter bars. In fall scarves..
See ya’ll in a week!
