Homemade Applesauce

It is really starting to feel like Fall around here! Granted it is still 80 during the day and I just got burnt at The Hubs' soccer game, but STILL it is in the 50s and 60s in the early morning and nighttime so that helps my case :) AND I actually saw a tree today that is changing colors WOOHOOO!! one of my favorite fall things.

Fall to me equals yummy soups, cinnamon scents, and apples! Those have all very prevalent in our house in the last month. The apple part all started with The Hubs bringing home a HUGE box of Red Delicious apples after his last road trip. Seriously guys, when I say huge, I really mean ginormous. I wish I would have taken a picture so you guys can understand how I had no idea what to do with them. You see, I really really dislike red delicious apples, even though I love most apples, that love does not spread to red delicious. So there they sat, for a good couple of days, a box of 15 large red delicious apples without a home. Then I had a grand idea to make applesauce! I had never made it before but figured it wouldn't be that difficult so I looked up a recipe and there I went. I ended up loving it and better yet it made the whole house smell delicious! Either which way, I had trouble finding a recipe that really seemed good. None of the really seemed liked they gave full accurate, direction. So I kind of made up my own so I can share it with you guys!

Bre's Applesauce

4 apples
3/4 c. water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Dash of sugar (optional)

1. Peel and core the apples.
2. Dice the apples and put into a stock pot.

3. Add water, cinnamon, and nutmeg and bring to a boil. When I added the water it did not seem like nearly enough but I actually ended up spooning out some of the excess water right before they got too mushy.

4. Cover and turn down to a low heat. Cook for 45 min to 1 hour stirring regularly.
5. Once apples start to break up take a whisk and stir/break up apples to your desired consistency.

I know it looks nasty in this pic but I promise you, its not.
And there ya have it! Homemade applesauce :) Guys, it is sooooo delicious and is actually really yummy warm. No one believes me when I say that it is like a dessert but I back that comment 100% :)

Hope you all enjoy this recipe!

Oh, Music :)

Phil Wickham came out with a new CD on October 4th!!! YAHOO!! Can you tell I like his music just a tad? I just love how Phil Wickham's passion and desire for God is so evident in his music. Its so amaing to worship with! My kinda thing :)

This song in particular caught my ears ;) "Heaven Fall Down" and it's on his new album called Response. Its just singing about being wrapped up in the Lord's presence and being caught up in Him. Ahhhhhh, love ;)

Have you experienced his presence? I highly recommend it if you haven't. "Just cry out in desperation for Him".
Open our eyes
Lord, let us see
All that you are
All that you mean

Open our eyes 
Lord, let us hear
All that you are
Be loud in clear

Music Monday :)

Ok so a few days ago I was having one of those days.. You know, the ones where you are in a rut and just can't seem to get out? Anyways the weights of the world were starting to get to me, which I don't approve of!!! So I was doing my best to get rid of those nasty feelings that do not have a place in my life and this lovely song came on.

It really spoke to me in that moment.

Take Heart 
let His love lead us through the night

Hold on to Hope 
and take courage again

All our troubles
All our fears
God our Hope

There is nothing he cannot do. We have the mightiest God right by our side. We have the King of all Kings fighting for us. He has already overcome anything that can come against us. So no need to worry, no need to fret, just have peace in the Lord, our Savior. 

There is nothing more comforting to me than that. I love him and his faithfulness to his children!!!

Take Heart,
Breanna Mae
