"On this road called life, you have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you got, and remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget, learn from your mistakes. People change. Things go wrong. But just remember, the ride goes on." (Author Unknown)
Hello, my lovely friends!!!
We finished cleaning up the yard, the front, and back. YAY! Tomorrow they’re coming out to blow-out our sprinklers, it’s the landscapers that did our backyard earlier in the summer. For a moment we thought we’d have to call someone else because she said they couldn’t get here until Saturday, but then she looked up our account and gave us a Wednesday opening. I think something is probably in our account because we’ve used him since my parents bought the house and I continued. It’s a good thing because they said it will be 27 and 2 to 4 inches of snow will fall. YAY! However, it’ll be back up to the 60’s and ’70s on the weekend and we can put up the decorations.
While I was looking through Pinterest the other day, I saw some recipes for an apple cider mix. You keep it in a jar and use it to enhance your apple cider or wine for the holidays. Last year I bought some apple cider k-cups that were on clearance. I made a cup and it was like apple-flavored water, not good. I tried taking the powder of two k-cups and put it in the coffee filter and still not good. So, they’ve been hanging out in the pantry taking up space. When I saw the recipe I knew I had to try it out to see if it worked with the k-cups and it did.
Apple Cider Spice Mix
4 cups of Splenda or sugar
4TBSP. ground cinnamon
½ TBSP. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground cloves
Like I said before you can add this mix to apple cider, wine or even a hot cup of tea. You can mix everything in a bowl and throw it in a jar. Or you can do what I did and throw everything in a food processor to really mix it all together and then put it in a jar. I use 1 to2 tsp. for a hot mug of cider. Also, use 1 TBSP. per quart of cider or wine. It would make a festive drink for Thanksgiving.
