I have done The Simple Woman's Daybook off and on for awhile now. This month she started a couple of new things. One of them is called The Simple Woman's Kitchen and Garden. You can share recipes,the way you decorate your kitchen, pictures or ideas for gardens etc.
I had to go to a meeting recently and had to carry a vegetable but it also had to contain apples. I looked and looked and finally decided to cook this recipe and let me tell you I will be cooking it again as it was really good. It is a wonderful fall recipe to I am sharing it with ya'll-hope you like it too.....
