Yesterday, I made apple butter. It took over 13 hours (crock pot) and it was worth every minute. In the crock pot, I put in 5 1/2 pounds of peeled, cored, diced apples, 3 1/2 cups of sugar, 2t cinnamon and 1/4 t ground cloves and cooked on high for 1 hour, and then turned it down to low for 9-11 hours (until it thickened). After that, I took off the lid and cooked for 1 more hour. Then, I put it in the fridge (because it was way past my bed time).
When I got up this morning, I put it on some toast and enjoyed. I am so happy, it actually tastes like apple butter. YUM! I can't wait for breakfast tomorrow!
Right now, I'm making chicken noodle soup in the crock pot. I hope it turns out. I'll let you guys know tomorrow how it tastes. I love my crock pot. I have some extra time because of it!
I think I'll make some PB cookies tonight. I just may add some chocolate chips on top!!?? Tomorrow, I head back to the gym for some ab and arm workouts for the rest of week. I'm still resting the foot. It doesn't hurt, until I start running. I'm taking it easy and letting it heal as much as I can before my race on the 4th.
