Fast School Night Tacos

Fast School Night Tacos The first Tuesday night of the month were always crazed at our house. After the kiddo walked home from school, it was straight to homework, grab a quick dinner, then off to 4H.

Homemade Apple Sauce

We love homemade apple sauce. Our neighbors backyard has an apple tree. Do you see where I’m going? The house was owned by an elderly woman and she told me when we first moved into our house that I could help myself at any time. I went so far as to buy an apple picker…
