Weekend at Wildwood...

I got up bright and early, Saturday morning, to make breakfast and coffee for Alex. This was the first weekend in a month that he didn't have to work and I was very happy about that. Out of bed at 7:15am on a Saturday...this is unheard of for me but I wanted to show my hubby some love! :)

I found a new recipe on this site that I wanted to try and they turned out so yummy! One of Alex's and my new favorites, actually. They are called Applesauce Puffs. They have the potential to be healthy but after I dipped them in butter and cinnamon sugar, all of that pontential went out the window. They were so easy and delicious that I thought I would share the recipe, incase you would like to try them as well!


Applesauce Puffs

2 cups Biscuit Mix
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
Heat oven to 400°. Grease muffin tins.
Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and reserve.
Combine Biscuit Mix and 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl.
Add applesauce, milk, egg and oil. Beat well.
Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove muffins and dip in melted butter, then in sugar and cinnamon mixture. Yields 24 mini muffins.


Don't they look yummy!??


Saturday afternoon, we headed out to Wildwood. I LOVE it out there. I have taken my nephews and nieces to many plays and concerts out there and enjoy supporting them whenever possible. This weekend is the Wildwood Park for the Arts Harvest Festival, so we went for a little bit and enjoyed all they had to offer. Here are a few pics from the afternoon.



On beautiful Wildwood Lake
The lady asked if we were on a first date...awwww :)


They had a scarecrow contest and hung them all throughout the woods


This was the fiddling contest on the lawn...
we enjoyed the children that got up to play, very impressive!


Alex hates corn, so I had to devour this roasted corn all by myself...ah shucks! hehe



We had a very relaxing weekend...if only the HOGS would have won, that would have been the icing on the cake! :)

I'm going to see my Mom tomorrow...I'm looking forward to that. She wants to do a little shopping in Jonesboro and of course, her and Daddy always take me to eat at my favorite place up there...Sandbar Grille! I can't wait!!

Love to all,
Jill

Mmmmmm... corn on the cob! Yum!

Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers!

I'm still praying myself for those beta numbers to rise. Hopefully someday soon I can relax.

You're next!

HUGS to my internet BFF! You've been so supportive.

Ooo, Wildwood looks like an amazing place to spend a beautiful Saturday afternoon! Have fun in Jonesboro. Do you ever drive near or through Hardy, AR? MTB and I have a super small cabin there, and he is dying to get back for long a weekend soon. Just curious.

Also, the puffs look sooo good, and I may have to make some with the huge jar of applesauce I just bought today.

You look so happy and beautiful in the pics - I'm glad you are doing well. {{Hugs}} for you!

Wow, those applesauce puffs look delectable. They kind of remind of of a healthier version of a donut hole. Yum-O
Looks like a fun time at Wildwood and the weather looked perfect.

Looks like a fun place! Although those Scarecrows in the woods would FREAK me out! Remember the Blair Witch? Yikes, it was not the witch that scared me, but those sticks hanging in the trees, in the woods..bad bad. Anyway, still I love this time of year!
