Living in Colorado, you certainly expect to see snow. However, I don’t expect snow until NOVEMBER. It just doesn’t seem appropriate. I mean, November is almost December. That makes it ok, but before Halloween?? No thanks!

The only GREAT thing about a Winter Storm Warning in October is a SNOW DAY! With all the weather folks predicting 8-12 inches of snow in the past 24 hours, it was an EASY decision to stay in today. The fact that I had continuing education for my licensing lingering about as well, I knew I’d stay busy.

Determined to be productive despite the weather, I also decided to try a new recipe today while I was busily working. I’m sure many of you are also fans of Skinny Taste.

For those of you who follow Skinny Taste – – Did you see Gina’s recipe this week for Crockpot Applesauce?? It seemed like the PERFECT cool weather treat. And, what a treat it was!!!
This recipe creates the smoothest, tastiest, most delicious applesauce. You HAVE to TRY it!
and I decided to do just a 1/2 batch to try it out.
Four pretty good sized apples filled my crock about 1/2 way.
