Back in Knoxville, where it is fall!

I'm back in Knoxville. Long story.

Yesterday I attempted to make Swedish pancakes. By myself. This was the first time I have ever done this without the help of someone more experienced than myself. While they did not turn out quite as good as Mom's, Granny's, or probably even Melissa's, they were decent and I finally got the timing and technique down for flipping them. I also could have used Allie for help with the cinnamon sugaring, but I managed. And I find it funny that out of all the people I just named, my younger sister who is 19 is the only one without a blog. Yes, my mom, grandma, and oldest sister all have one but she does not.

Yesterday Jeremy and I decided to go apple picking because it's fall and he's never been before. We found a nearby orchard on the internet and set out. After getting a little lost, we finally found it and crashed what appeared to be a family get together. There were a bunch of people in lawnchairs sitting around a table with a lot of food, watching the UT-Alabama football game. But they welcomed us, gave us some hot cider, and showed us to the trees. We ended up coming home with a dozen apples and a gallon of cider. Now we just need to find an apple pie recipe.

The leaves are nearing their peak here and it's so beautiful. It makes me miss da U.P. but not Texas. Although I do miss Waco, especially since it was Baylor's homecoming this weekend. AND we actually won! 36-35 over KU. That's right, Baylor beat both K-State AND KU this year! Wow, who woulda thunk?

****EDIT****
So upon some investigating, I have found out that Allie does indeed have a blog! Bout time you get with the program, lil sis...

Golda, Granny has a recipe for brownies which I suggested yesterday that she put on her blog so that we could all have it. I suggested that she do this with recipes as part of her blog, so that they would easily be shared.

The brownie recipe has apples it in! It calls for an apple filling, which I'm sure you could make. Shaun recently made some. I can't wait to try the brownies!

What about Betsy? Does she have a blog? Melissa misunderstood me it is not brownies. It is a cake. And I will put it on my blog.

No, betsy doesn't have a blog - but she should! We'll have to pressure her until she finally caves...

As for the U.P. their leaves changes back in Aug when we went home for Loni's wedding-did you forget it goes straight from one month of summer to winter => I may have to start to blog-jsut so I can comment on Granny's "members only" sight. OK love ya!
