Nutmeg and Cinnamon

I love this thing.



Fall would be so tedious without my apple peeler/corer/slicer. Before this lovely invention, I had to do all this by hand. The horror.


Even with a broken handle (the repair, by the way, will be a boy job) I whizzed through those apples to get to the good part: dark brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. This was the first time I've grated my own nutmeg and cinnamon. It was a little extra work, but worth it.



There you have it: my first apple pie of the season. Inspired by Julie, whose blog you definitely need to check out. We went to college together, so I can tell you that as cool as she seems in her blog, she's just as sweet and cool in real life.

That apple pie is AMAZING! AMAZING! I am in awe!

It's so funny because I just got back from a field trip to an apple orchard and they demonstrated the peeler- I had never seen one before! The kids LOVED it.

Mmmmmm - that looks absolutely delish! I can almost taste it now! In fact, my mouth is watering...

I'm wondering if you would be willing to FedEx some...{Grin}
