Pumpkin Apple Butter

You guys, the best thing ever just happened. No, Better Homes and Gardens isn’t featuring me in a magazine, and no, I’m not writing my first book. #iwish

Yesterday my in-laws drove over from Illinois to attend Grandparents’ Day in Wyatt’s preschool class, and they asked if the boys could come stay with them for a few days since they’re now on fall break. Let me think… 4 days with no kids… Jeremy’s busy driving the tractor… yep, this day just got awesome! I’m going to stay in my pajamas all day and eat food I know no one else in my family likes, like Hawaiian pizza and chocolate chip cookies with LOTS of walnuts. Is it sad that my idea of a party is watching the latest episodes of Nashville and Grey’s Anatomy in bed with a big bowl of salted caramel ice cream? Wait… don’t answer that.

Here’s the other thing I’m going to be doing while they’re gone: finding a million ways to eat this AMAZING Pumpkin Apple Butter I just made. If you’ve ever eaten apple butter before, just imagine adding a big dose of pumpkin pie flavor to the mix!

You've got to start somewhere, right? Fast forward a few years, and I've moved up to my big girl camera, learned how to edit my photos, and even taught … [Continue reading...]
