Two of my schools want to try making caramel apples this fall. Well, if we must, we must…I suppose.
Now, my dad makes absolutely wonderful and amazing caramel corn. Amazing. I’m gaining weight just thinking about it. So, I think my secret hope was that the apples would have a bit of a similar taste.
I found a simple-sounding recipe on an interesting blog. Only 3 ingredients are required, and all of them are easily found here in the tundra. Shock! Awe! Anyway, here is the original recipe:
Looks pretty drool-worthy, huh?
So, I set out to do a trial run.
Here are my apples, speared with chopsticks instead of lollipop sticks.
Creeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaam! Hello, darling. And hello, invisible sea salt.
Cooking the caramel takes forever. And ever. Amen.
Finally! Time to roll!
And, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. But it was pretty tasty, especially once the caramel got good and cool. Definitely not as good as Dad’s, though!

Hi, friends! I’ve been away from here for a long time. Oops.
There’s not too much going on here – fall is moving right along.
So, I was moving pictures off my SD cards this evening, and came across some random things I figured I’d throw up here for you.
Here is one of my favorite hotel rooms in recent times.
Rishiri Island pizza – so bad, yet oh, so good. You can’t really see the tentacles in this shot, but they are in there, hidden by cheese.

There’s a big, pretty bus that drives around town. I saw it had a block of text on it, and I finally caught it for a photo. It kind of makes me smile.

Well, I’ll try not to be such a stranger. But NaNoWriMo is coming soon, so I can’t promise anything!
