Well, now that there are some apples that are picked, gotta so something with them, so here they are cored, sliced and boiling on the stove. Yes, right beside them is a fresh loaf of shepherd's bread that the wife asked me to "whip up" this afternoon. The apples are next destined for the blender, which with a roar will turn them into apple sauce. I like to add a bit of vanilla at that stage to give the sauce an extra kick. I will repeat this until I am too tired to do it any longer, but we will have a nice stash of apple sauce that usually lasts well into wintertime.
Here is the shepherd's bread in its last seconds of being intact. Right behind me as I was taking this photo was the 17 year old, knife in hand and ready to cut out a slice.
