Old Fashioned Apple Crisp


Hello everyone, 
I promised Apple Crisp in my Apple dishes and here it is...A few days ago I posted
 'Apple Tea Time' Go Here
Yum!! I warmed the Apple Crisp in the microwave and put some whipped cream on top. So good♥
My 'First Love' silverware with the harp shaped fork tines.
The hydrangeas are so colorful...
I found this tea towel at the thrift store. Apple Crisp is kind of  like Apple Pie, but without the crust.
The dishes are a clear glass button salad plate, yellow salad plate from the Dollar Tree and a glass apple dessert dish from Tuesday Morning.

Apple Tea Time


Hello everyone,
I shared some beautiful apples in my Produce stand post HERE. I was inspired to make some Apple Crisp and serve tea. I found these adorable apple napkin rings at Tuesday Morning on the clearance shelf a couple of weeks ago...and I was off to the tea table.
While working at Tuesday Morning in 2011, I would have a great time finding so many cute dishes and table linens. The glass apple plates and clear button salad plates were brought home to make a sweet tea time tablescape. To see the apple dishes in last year's tablescape GO HERE 
I have a passion for green depression glass. I found these tea cups and saucers at an antique shop.  
My silverware is 'First Love' a gift to myself many years ago.

I picked a few hydrangeas blooms and I'm hoping they will dry naturally. 
The light is so beautiful shining on the glassware.
Of course some delicious apple flavored tea steeping in my vintage yellow tea pot.
The hydrangeas are drying as I write this post.

I'm off to serve the warm apple crisp with some delicious whipped cream. 
Come back soon and pick up the recipe.
Joyously,

Hello Autumn!


Hello everyone, 
Last week I shared my produce stand GO HERE I had some pears I received from a friend and I used them to make this delicious Pear Chutney. If you happen to have a pear tree or have come into more pears than you know what to do with, pear chutney is your solution. 
Even people who never thought of putting up anything at all, or just once made a few jars of strawberry jam, might be lured by pear chutney. It makes a great holiday gift. You can stir it while on the phone with a friend, and you don't have to worry about setting points.
PEAR CHUTNEY
 is foolproof and friendly. 
Printable Recipe HERE
PEAR CHUTNEY
Sterilize eight 8-ounce jars 
(If you're not sure how to sterilize jars,
 My procedure is under HOT WATER BATH)
Cook 3 pounds firm-ripe pears, cored (but not peeled) and chopped, 2 big cloves of garlic, minced, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons hot paprika (or cayenne to taste). 2 teaspoons ground coriander (use whole coriander seed and crush them yourself), I cup vinegar or lime juice or a  combination of both, 1 1/2 cups raisins and 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger (or 1 tablespoons ground dried). When the pears are tender, stir in 1 cup brown sugar. If the chutney seems too thick, add about 1/2 cup water. Then cook it down for around 10 minutes-until it is sludgy but not liquidy.  Put it in the sterilized jars, fill the sterilized jars to within 1/4 inch of the tops, seal the jars, and process them for 10 minutes. (using HOT WATER BATH) instructions. Keep the jars for a few months before opening. 
Suggestions for uses of  Pear Chutney
My favorite is to serve it as an accompaniment to pork roast, pork chops, chicken, turkey and lamb.
How about a ham sandwich with havarti cheese, sliced apple and the chutney?
I love making pear chutney and my whole family loves it too. When I serve it at the table sweetheart will take a spoonful of it and just savor it alone in his mouth. He just loves it.
Because I only make six jars I put it in the refrigerator and we have it gone in about three months.

Scottish Tea Cozy


Hello everyone,
Wow, these weeks just fly by. While sweetheart and I were on our trip to the coast I found a wonderful shop in old town Eureka. The shop sells beautiful clothes from Scotland and Ireland and other specialty items. I was so excited when I spotted this adorable tea cozy. I love going on trips and finding  wonderful things that I can enjoy long after our trips are just a memory.
I also found a tea towel with four different symbols representing Scotland's heritage.
The Lion Rampant is referred to as the 'Royal Flag of Scotland'
I set the tea table with some shortbread, fruitcake and raspberry filled cookies from Tuesday Morning. 
Celtic Cross
A Scottish tea cup
My Thistle tea cup is such a traditional symbol of Scotland
The Thistle is the National Emblem of Scotland
T
The bagpiper of Scotland
I picked my zinnias and blue delphinium for this bouquet.
I love my flowers...Even when the weather is so hot outside you could fry and egg on the sidewalk the little darlings just keep blooming. I think this photo looks like a watercolor.

The white tea cozy is made of wool and the pom-pom on top reminds me of the pom-pom on the top of my Scottish tam. The beautiful cable design is amazing.
