Blogidays December 4- cinnamon ornaments and meals

Hello everyone 
2 grands were with us over 2 days.
We tried making cinnamon applesauce ornaments 
There are lots of recipes and variations on Pinterest if you want to try them 
The basic recipe is just cinnamon and applesauce.  We added some other spices that were getting old and some school glue 
When the mixture is all mixed up, roll it out, cut with a cookie cutter and use a straw to add a hole for hanging 
Then either bake them or air dry.  Ours are air drying.  I flipped them this morning so they would dry on both sides and some of the ones we rolled too thin broke.  
But they do smell delicious and we had fun making them.  

Supper last night was beef tacos and chicken tacos. 
These Soft Tortilla Bowls cost more than traditional taco shells or tortillas but they make taco eating so easy! 

Breakfast was what the boys asked for- pancakes and bacon 

Lunch was vegetable beef soup, grilled cheese and orange slices 

There is a slight possibility that public schools in our town will open on an A/B schedule next week.  
But who knows?  The Covid numbers are bad but there was some glitch in how they were reported so they look worse that they really are.  🤷🏻‍♀️

That’s how we spent the last 24 hours or so........ I’m a homebody but I’m really ready for this pandemic to be over!

I love that you cook just like I do. When ever I see your table it looks like mine. I made those ornaments a few years ago and they were fun.

Your grands are lucky to have you as their grandma, but you are lucky to live close enough to share their lives. I have not seen my granddaughter except via FaceTime in over a year.

I remember making the cinnamon/applesauce ornaments with my preschool classes many years ago. If I get the time with the grands, maybe we'll do some here. I need all ornaments to be kitty-proof this year, and those would be a great addition!

Would be oh so happy for pandemic to be over!

I remember making those ornaments with my boys! I think most of them broke though.

I'm taking a break from cooking tonight and we are going to order Mexican food take-out.

Numbers are still skyrocketing here in Illinois - Covid is absolutely rampant. I don't know of any schools open here.

Stay safe!
