Peach State says: Yummy Apple Cinnamon Roll Bake!

20131015-180724.jpg
So my tastebuds took over my day…
Wash, core, peel, slice and chop….all of my Granny Smith apples. Once that was completed I preceded to cook the apples, adding my spices and sugar and 3/4 cup of butter. After the apple mixture resembled apple pie filling I unrolled my favorite cinnamon rolls and added the apples. I rolled the cinnamon rolls up and place the entire roll into my baking dish.

Bake…Yummy Apple Cinnamon Roll Bake!

Then I took some caramel ice cream topping and mixed with the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls….and drizzled it over the baked concoction. “I should have bought some vanilla ice cream!”

By the way…this is the brand of cinnamon roll I used…

Peach State says: Monday…It’s Almost Over!

20131014-203135.jpg

I have bombarded all day by unusual and unscheduled conflict! Not a good day! My heart is heavy and my soul is searching for any sort of calming!

Monday…It’s Almost Over!

Coffee was not the fix it has been in the past! I don’t think that any amount of coffee, even intravenously, would have benefited my dampened mood!!!

Maybe I need to put my feet up, watch a couple of shows on TV and relax for a few reflective minutes.

Tomorrow is another day!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Can you believe it? I am posting before 3 PM in the afternoon!

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

I hope this does not throw your entire day off kilter… Today is a busy day and it starts early with an errand taking me to a neighboring city in the county just to the south of us. I will drop of my 23 year old at the unemployment center and then drive my 20 year old to the recruiter’s office for his last official weigh-in/ paperwork before his information is resubmitted to MEPS next week. I will then exchange a pair of jeans and gather the troops, back into the car, and head back home. Once home the task at hand will be to prepare for a Fall Festival at my BFF’s school tomorrow. “I will have a vendor table set up with my goodies ( not baked…but they do smell good!) in hopes of selling most of what I have and booking parties for this month and next.”

My youngest is trying to leave ten minutes ahead of schedule and Hubby is almost ready to walk out the door so I must close! The other two, who are still sleeping snugly tucked in their beds, will be waking as soon as I gently nudge them from their peaceful slumber. ( That will be fun!) I have a lot to do in a short time!

So…

Oh…and it’s Friday!. I have some great new recipes I will be sharing with you soon.
Until then have a great one and…

Peach State says: The Waiting Game!

20131008-195410.jpg
My hubby was supposed to get off today at 5PM but as of three minutes ago he was still at work! So…We are watching one of my family’s favorite movies…”Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”! We have every set to record and will wait until he gets home! So here we are just hanging out with a wonderful movie as we play The Waiting Game!
It is time for the big battle…
Back to the show!

See you all tomorrow for some Facebook Funnies…

Peach State says: Crafty Little Leaf!

20131007-200405.jpg

So I was looking through a magazine the other day I saw this cute idea…

Crafty Little Leaf!

Here is the concept…

Collect some wonderful and colorful leaves ( or buy a bag of silk Fall leaves)

20131007-200910.jpg

And a balloon ( blown up)

20131007-200953.jpg

And some Modge Podge or a water glue mixture.

Apply the glue product to the leaves and place on the the large top of the balloon. Hint place the balloon in a large dish to hold the balloon stable.!

20131007-201443.jpg

Arrange and place the leaves in an overlapping pattern around the balloon and when finished let dry,
Once dry, pop the balloon and remove it from the the Leaf Bowl.

20131007-201720.jpg
The balloon will look similar to this…and the Leaf Bowl will look like this…

20131007-201907.jpg
It was fun and I think I will do this again…I may even try the same type of project with some snowflakes foe Christmas.

Time for some NFL football!

Peach State says: The Coolness Of The Morning

20131005-071819.jpg

The changing of the colors in vibrant display…
The scattering of fallen leaves massed beneath the emptying branches…
The added morning dew rolling gently off the vehicles in the driveway…
The wearing of deeper purples and reds as feet begin to hibernate inside socks and closed toed shoes…
Festivals of every design with pumpkins, corn stalks and hay bales…
Gatherings of friends and family draped in their favorite team’s colors…
And…the raising of the household thermostat…

Ah! It’s Fall and I can finally feel a crispy change in the air…well for a little while!

The Coolness Of The Fall Morning!

I smile a quiet smile and take a sip of my “morning companion” relishing the warmth as the soothing caffeine begins it’s gradual wake-up call. I hope my coffee works quickly…my youngest has a game to play this morning and I would so love to crawl beneath the beckoning bed-covers.

“I Do Love Fall…Do You?”

Peach State says: Is it Friday Yet?

20131003-165344.jpg

Is It Friday Yet?
I am so ready for the weekend! This week has been a funky-off-kilter-spin-your-head-around type of week. I will blame my hubby’s boss and co-worker for this abnormal feeling of disarray. The co-worker is taking ANOTHER 7 days off for a vacation…and the boss gave my hubby the day off Tuesday which threw off my whole week!

“Where are my fuzzy socks and latte’ when I need them?

Well I guess I know what my next task should be…fuzzy socks and then make a nice oversized cup filled with a latte’! “Want me to fix you a cup too?”

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
