Carmel Apples

The astute among you (or perhaps simply those with more time) may have noticed the Fall Activity List in my sidebar. I love Fall! Something about the cool, crisp air and changing colors just makes me happy... or maybe it is the baking and goodies that I associate with it. :) But lately, there has been this weird phenomenon in my life called "time flying by". Summer was pretty much over before I knew that it had begun. Granted, we were pretty busy buying a house, moving, and me trying not to throw up (so glad my morning sickness doesn't last throughout the pregnancy!). But, I didn't want the same thing to happen to Autumn, especially since it is such a sort season.

So for Family Home Evening a couple of weeks ago, we sat down and made a list of things that we wanted to do this Fall. One of those things was make Carmel Apples. Back in college, my roommate, Michelle, and I had a tradition of making carmel apples, and I've decided to continue this tradition with my own family. This years carmel apples proved to be quite funny, though. After making the carmel apples, I realized that I had no room to store them in the fridge. (I was a co-chair over food for our Stake Relief Society activity, so my fridge was chock-full of that food.) I had no choice but to leave the apples out on the counter. Well, I guess by doing that, the carmel never got the chance to really set. It pretty much just ran down the apples and pooled on the tray. By the time we got around to eating the last apple, there was a ring of carmel about 3 inches in diameter around the bottom of it! Moral of the story: store carmel apples in the fridge!
