Old Books and Candy Corn

Today was another crafting day with my friend Meagan.  We got this idea off Pinterest. They were fun to make . I bought the books for $0.25 each . Painted the books and Meagan cut some vinyl.

Also from Pinterest super easy. Yarn and a button on top.

Apple Sauce

A field trip to a apple orchard, got me thinking..

My apple picker

What if I brought home say 25 pounds of apples..

Since last week I may have been inspired by my $14 thrift store find.

It is almost Crocktober....so some apples a little brown sugar and some cinnamon, 6 hours on high in the crock pot, a  potato masher and thats it.

I could have this . Apple Sauce.

I know this is a craft blog, but Crocktober is about to start at my house. My daughter started this since it was October last year and I only used my crock pot for a week or so. I love my crock pot and there are so many recipes online now and Pinterest for some great stuff. Here is a new fave. The picture isn't mine and I didn't follow her recipe, but used it for my own inspiration.  Sometime I just don't have everything for the recipe so I have to make something else work for me.

So here is my recipe:
Frozen chicken tenders, 10-15 pieces (they can be kinda small)
1 or 2 cans of Enchilada sauce  (I like to cover the meat but not make soup)
3 TBS. of Taco seasoning  (I get mine at Costco in the jar) a package should do it
1 tsp Cumin
diced onions (half an onion)
Cheese when you're about  ready to serve and green onions
Cook on low for 6-8 or High for a few hours then turn down to low. Shred the meat after about 4 hours
Serve with warm flour tortillas
