I’ve missed you. Thanks for hangin’ in there during our transition. I hope you’ve all been merry through Christmas too!
After a two week break from blogging, we have moved from southeast Idaho to southwest Idaho. We are camping in temporary digs till we close our new home in about two weeks…yeah, we get to move it all one more time!
I shed some tears as we drove away from our snowy home. Thanks Mom for reminding me, “It served it’s purpose.” We will miss our amazing neighborhood and BYU-Idaho. We are grateful we were able to raise our family in such a wonderful place. We will cherish memories of our life in Rexburg and hope to visit dear friends in the near future.
I never want to forget the snow hanging over our back deck!
Before we packed up and headed out we had one last celebration with our helpers and I made a favorite family dessert we enjoy all Fall and winter long,
Apple Pudding Cake with Vanilla Sauce
This can be made ahead of time, although my guy likes it warm, out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When you are in the middle of a mad-dash, the most time consuming part of this is grating the apples and chopping the nuts. Both are made easier with your food processor.
Bake it up, make a quick vanilla sauce and then kick back and enjoy time with your guests! Serve with a dollop of whipped cream…
or a scoop of ice-cream, or both if you are like my guy!
Serve with lots of love as you say goodbye to 2010!
