Tart apples, the best are Jona Gold but good luck in getting them, they are scoffed up so fast they are usually gone early in the season by big companies like marie collander and hostess. Granny Smith and young gala will do fine too.
Well Hostess won't be needing them anymore. I love Granny Smiths!
Dang I saw a few of those shooting stars but I guess I gave up too soon.

Good morning. Hope you are doing well on this fine day. It's ok to throw in magnapoots, if you like. Lol.

Ancient Wolf, do you do much cooking on your wood stove?
Not much, but some. It will be good if we have a power outtage. MY internet has been down for the last 24 hours.

If you have an Amish or Mennonite store around check with them on the apples. They should have some or be able to get you some.:)
Thanks. We do have one in town. I will call them to day.
I think I have seen dried apples in a box, like the ones raisins come in.
Is it OK to use apple butter if can't find dried apples?

I'm going to go out after while to see if the birds are out. I was out early to let the dogs pee. I didn't notice any birds. Ol' kitty tom jumps up on the porch rail demanding 100% of my attention. If he doesn't get full attention he reminds me with claws to the chest. Lol.

That is true too.:) Do any of y'all know what kind of apples the old folks used for cooking, sweet apples or sour Granny Smiths?
It did not matter, we used whatever was on the trees, from Graany Smiths to the yellow June apples.

Apple butter works just fine.

I like to make individual serving size of hot fried apple pies using apple butter and the canned yeast rolls and a dip of vanilla ice cream.

I'm not sure about the apple butter. You might end up creating something new but I bet it would be good.:) I bet the Amish or Mennonites can find you some. Good luck.:)

That does sound good. My mom use to make fried pies. She would make me one with a bunch of butter and cocoa in it. Oh gosh, you cut into that thing and all that hot butter and chocolate oozes out, so good - a chocolate high I'm telling you! LOL I never thought about ice cream. No doubt that would meet the daily quota in calories. lol I need to make her some fried apple pies.

I'm glad your internet is back! Oh yes, you would have it made in a power outage, warm and fed. Was the ice storm bad where you live?

Lots of people said it was. LOL But I don't remember it being nearly as bad as the winter of '77-'78. I am going out today to see if I can find my great-grandfather's grave. He served in the Civil War.

Good afternoon to you. I'm just fine and dandy today. Hope that your day is going as well. BTW, I guess that I was right about you. You have a kind heart beating underneath that rough,gruff, and irreverant exterior. There's no need to hide it. I'm glad that you joined the conversation. You're really quite clever and funny when you want to be.

It was bad at this end of the state. Some people were without electricity for 30 days. It was pretty dang cold at the time. Could have been colder but it was cold enough! Three years later, we still have big dead limbs falling out of the trees. I have Civil War soldier ancestors too, also Revolutionary War. Hope you find the gravesite. If it is an unmarked grave there might be some organization that would help you get a marker.

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you are enjoying the sunny day. I hope to. My heart is heavy as I listen to the latest school shooting special report. How sad:

18 children among 27 dead in Connecticut school shooting

My prayers are with the families and people of Connecticut.

Got the 6.3-magnitude quake strikes off California coast and one small one close to us.

Irondale, Alabama
Magnitude: 1.6
and Utah, Montana, Hawaii, Alaska

Then:
US to send missiles, troops to Turkey in bid to deter Syria

Wow, big day in the news. I am glad so many seen the meteors last night. I seen a few before it was just too cold for me. If I had a sunroof, I would have ran the car for heat and reclined my seat, put some music on and watch for an hour or so. The sky certainly was beautiful.

I hope you all have a great day. I am off to get things done, then out with a special someone and won't be home until late tonight. Enjoy your Friday and weekend.

That soft kitty song got to all of us, I think. Or maybe it's the Christmas season. Who knows... We should be kind to each other for the rest of the year. No one could ever ruin your reputation as a scary troll, so don't worry about that. Now that we know that you are a force to contend with, you can come out from behind the wall that you built around yourself. I think that you will find that most folks are decent and are willing to accept you for who you are.
