We made our annual apple picking trip last week. Bella and her friends had fun, even it kind of got old after a little while. All of the apples were high up in the trees and they couldn’t reach much of anything themselves! Still, we had fun, and brought home a ton of yummy apples…and now the fun REALLY begins.
My friend Nicole had this delicious looking recipe on her blog that I knew I had to try. The biggest bonus was that it was for the crockpot – perfect while working from home while I’m not able to babysit something over the stove.
Oh and we didn’t just get apples from the farm…we got these a-MAZ-ing potato pancakes…because, you know, something had to “go” with the applesauce 🙂
Make a LOT of this – it’ll go fast!
