The Most Pathetic Caramel Apples Ever

Happy Weekend!  Lately our weekends have begun on Thursday.  It really doesn't matter what the reason; all that matters is that we're ready for something a little less ordinary.  We've been getting together with our neighbors a lot for walks/runs with the kids, play dates, barbeques, etc.  On Thursday afternoon when the electricity went out for several hours (that's what happens when you live out in the country), I invited our neighbor friends Amy and Dani and their children over to make caramel apples on my gas stove (that still works when the electricity is out).  We waited and waited and waited for the caramel to reach the specified temperature.  And then?  The caramel simply ran off the apples like syrup.  Our caramel was a fail, but it didn't stop us from having a good time anyway.  We decorated the apples and ate them despite their odd looks.  They were U-G-L-Y but they still tasted great!  And then our husbands came home and we finished the evening with pizza... because who can cook dinner when the electricity is out?  (Oh, I can!)

 

Other weekend highlights:

::  We invited more friends over on Friday night for dinner and a movie.  Bron's special tomato sauce over chicken parmigiana is to die for!

::  Bron babysat Jed so I could go shopping all by myself on Saturday.  It was a break I desperately needed.  I took my mini companion with me and we hit the stores!  We came back with Fall decorations for the house and new clothes for the both of us, including a little Halloween outfit for Levi to answer the door in.  It glows in the dark!
