I feel so good whenever I adapt to a new form of technology. Why I even feel a little smug now that I have a Fast Pass for the Mass. Turnpike. My adult children will laugh and remind me that one does not have to be a rocket scientist to drive and have a signal read from the windshield. However, I feel proud that I conquered my fear of something new and strange.
It’s funny what throws us for a loop. I don’t mind meeting new people. And I enjoy public speaking. However, when I first had to run our DVD player I was anxious.
One thing that I am at ease with is my new Kitchen Aid mixer.
I am giddy with excitement over this new appliance. It works like a dream. And truly one of the best things about it was the price. My friend, Liz, did some serious negotiating at a store with coupons and rebates and discounts and ended up with a great buy. I am so grateful.
I used it Sunday to make some Apple Bread. I posted the recipe last time.
And I also made some caramel apple dip. I had said I would post that recipe last time — hence the mix up — so I will put it in this week.
It’s delicious with any kind of apple, but my daughter, Kerry, likes it with Granny Smith apples.
It’s simple to make!
1 8 ounce cream cheese
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Mix with mixer. It’s that easy.
Another delight this week was watching the Basketball Hall of Fame acceptance speeches by most of the inductees. All were moving, poignant and inspiring — except sadly for Michael Jordan.
Also what was inspiring was the Generations of Faith program at St. Francis Parish in Belchertown. Kerry spoke at it and was impressed with the number of people and the dedication of those involved. Kudos to them.
Till next time.. enjoy the fall and GO SOX!!!
