|Down a Country Road|
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
The weather wasn't great for the picnic at church yesterday but it didn't matter because we all had a great time anyway. We had a guest speaker who is a friend of Pastor Leatherman's. David Sommerdorf and his wife Debra. They live and travel around the country in a RV with their 1992 "Marine Corps-Vette. He is a wonderful speaker and his sermons really get to the heart. The car is a memorial for the people of 9-11 and the military and is beautiful. If you'd like to see pictures of the car and to learn more about it, you can visit their website HERE
Here are the The Apple Turnovers I made for the picnic.
The recipe. It sounds easy and is but there are a lot of steps and my kitchen looked like I let a bunch of 4 years loose in it.
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 can Pillsbury Grands refrigerated extra rich biscuits (I used the original)
- 1 cup cinnamon and spice apple pie filling and topping. (I used a can of apple filling and added sugar and cinnamon)
- 4 teaspoons butter, melted
- Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each to form a 5-inch round. Place on sprayed cookie sheets.
- Place 2 tablespoons pie filling slightly off center on each biscuit round on one cookie sheet. Fold biscuits over filling; press edges with fork to seal. Prick top of each 3 times with fork. Brush each with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture.
- Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Some filling may bubble out at edges. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
I used three cans and made 24 of them. The picture only shows 23 because Ken and I ate one. They were not warm at the picnic and they were ALMOST as good.

This morning it was 60 degrees and cloudy with a little sun when I left for my walk. Had a random walk around town. I got started later than usual.
I was walking around the loop by the ball park and spotted a deer standing perfectly still on the trail down by the water. I stopped too and we both stood there. Slowly I put my camera up, took a picture and slowly walked away. The deer never moved at all. I turned around a few seconds later and she was gone.
I only walked 4.5 miles.
I went home because we planned on going to Annie's Kitchen for breakfast and didn't want to go too late so I got home at 8:00. After breakfast I went with Ken up to HT to get more fill for the patio. While he was loading the trailer (thankfully he has the tractor which makes quick work of getting a trailer full) I walked home. Figured I'd make up the rest of the miles I didn't walk earlier.
A couple of pictures I took on my walk home.
Ken passed me with his load when I was just about back to town.
I walked another 2.8 miles.

When I got home I helped unload the trailer and then when Ken went back for a second load I cooked up the chicken for supper tonight. (Chicken Parmesan)
It looked so good I couldn't help but eat a little piece of the chicken.
Ken came back with the second load and then we had lunch.
He went back for load number three and I stayed home to get some things done around the house.
I'm now waiting for Ken to get home with the trailer so I can help him unload. Then it is inside to make supper. Just have to put some sauce and cheese on the chicken, put it in the oven and make some spaghetti. We will probably eat it out on the porch which we do a lot of lately.
Hope your Monday is a happy one and you smiled often.

Three Thankful Things Today
- A chocolate chip pancake
- Country roads
- Clean fresh towels
Deb - we are considering putting in gold fish. We know someone who put fish in their pond and the fish do survive the winters here. We found a frog up at HT and put him in the pond today. He swam around and then settled on one of the rocks. We are wondering if he will stay around.
