Apple Cake and Thanksgiving

Naturally, after going apple picking we had to bake something!  So I did some quick googling and found this recipe.  It was pretty straight forward, I substituted the walnuts for pecans and I didn't mix it for the entire 15 minutes that it said to.

That's just too long....

....plus my mixer is super fast.....

....and, are you kidding me, fifteen minutes!!!


So my 'helpers' and I got busy.  Aren't they cute in their little aprons?  These sweet creations are courtesy of their granny, because she's good like that and because this gal don't sew much.....at least not yet! ;)

 The cake turned out pretty good.  It wasn't fabulous, but it was very tasty and easy to make, so that works for me.

I had totally meant to take photos of the finished product to share with you .....but that didn't happen and now the cake is all gone.

But trust me it was good and it actually made a large amount, lots to share or give away! 

Ah another beauty of homeschooling - we have all the time in the world to bake and it counts and both Math and Science!

My husband says we should do math and science every day!

Well here in Canada it is Thanksgiving this weekend - I know we're crazy eh?!?!


But oh joy, the weather is suppose to be gorgeous, the leaves are turning such lovely colours, the mornings are crisp and cool and the days are sunny and warm and we have three turkey dinners to go to! 


And there is always much to be Thankful for!

 I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
Psalm 9:1
