homemade applesauce

I love my job!
Every Thursday I work at the Mom's Day Out program at our church.
My dear friend Kathy is the teacher
and she is truly the most gifted teacher I have ever worked with.
And the kids simply adore her.

My granddaughter Emolyn loves Teacher Kathy!
She also loves curly apple peels.

A few weeks ago we made homemade applesauce in the classroom
and I'm not kidding you, it was the best applesauce ever!

Clic the pic to enlarge the recipe. 
I think what made the recipe extra awesome-
Kathy purchased a variety of apples
(Gala, Granny, Delicious and Rome)
and using my apple/peeler/corer/slicer made for small, even slices.

Oh my gosh, seriously the best!
Nothing better than warm applesauce.
Ok, so maybe adding a dollop of whipping cream on top.

I'm thinking I need to get me one of these 
Maybe I'll ask Santa for Christmas.

And who do you suppose Sophie and Elizabeth are looking at?

That would be Emolyn,
who devoured her cup of applesauce!

I am so thankful  that
I get to pour my life into these adorable little kiddles every Thursday.
And thank you Kathy!
I will leave you with one of her many amazing teaching tools...
that she made!

No, those are not french fries.
She cut up a sponge from the dollar store!
What a fun clever, counting tool!

So cute Linda!
And that applesauce looks excellent!
It's freezing rain here this morning. I want snow, I hate this rain.
Hugs Friend,

Grandma Larson taught me to make applesauce when we visited during the fall of 2001. It was the best!!
