Can someone please tell me where October has gone. In a blink of an eye its just a couple of days til November.. just a few weeks til Thanksgiving... and then it will be Christmas... hooray!!. Its true that as you get older..time goes faster. So..make the most of every minute.
Another full week for me. Whats on the agenda? Well.... A couple of 6 mile walks are planned..the first one at 6am this morning. A doctors appointment for a three month cancer check up this afternoon.. Im sure all is well on that score. Tomorrow Im helping to prepare and pack food boxes for the homeless. I have a bit of canning ..a bit of baking and some more dehydrating to do in the kitchen. I have to make progress with my Christmas sewing...even tho my hands are quite stiff and sore. Bible study and Fellowship at church on Thursday and DMV again Friday. And then the highlight of the week on Saturday .... spending time with MrD... Im not sure what he has planned. How on earth did I fit it all in when I was working outside the home
This weeks meals are mainly leftovers from my freezer as I would like to clean it out ready for the coming season.
Have a great week ...and here's this weeks dinner menu...

And so begins the last few days of my 55th year...and what an eventful year it was. Winning my battle with cancer.. an exciting, eventful trip back to England and the most blessed of gifts.. two new grandbabies. I wonder what my 56th year will bring?
This week I have a few things to look forward too. Some gentle walks with my dear friend who is back from her cruise today.. Ladies Bible study and fellowship at our church (which I always enjoy).. and a trip out to a huge craft fair on Saturday. And of course a Birthday date with MrD after church on Sunday. Time spent with my sweet hubby is always something to cherish.
So I better get myself into gear... and start these house chores. Have a wonderful week.. and here is this weeks dinner menu plan

Its been a busy couple of days in the old kitchen..
the dehydrator has been earning its keep
taking care of.. amongst other things...
the peppers I bought at the Farmers Market
3 for a dollar...a bargain!
When done they look so pretty in the jar...almost like candy
Im getting to be a bit of a dehydrating fiend!!
Easy Freezer Apple Pie Filling
Hubbys workmate brought more apples. They were not too hard so I decided to make Apple Pie Filling for the freezer ready for when we have pie in the next couple of weeks. Its lovely because the sugar, flour and juices meld together to make its own caramely sauce. Simple...and smells delicious
1cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn starch
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Thinly peel and slice apple into a bowl of water and lemon juice
When ready drain and put back into the bowl
Add all the ingredients
Divided into ziplock bags and press out as much air as you can before sealing
