APPLE BREAD and Fall Critters!

 LOVELY FALL, HOW I LOVE YOU! The crispness of the Autumn air,  open windows, blankets at night, hot comforting drinks and yummy cooked dinners---Ahhh!
  Here is a wonderful recipe for APPLE BREAD from my archives-LOL!
I love this recipe because you do NOT peel the apples!!  Yes, you read it right. 

1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
3 tbsp. Crisco shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 Cup unpeeled apples diced
1/2 Cup sour milk (sour it with 1/4 tsp. of white vinegar)
2 Cups of Flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
Chopped or crushed Walnuts are optional

Mix all ingredients well by hand and bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for 50 min. Test with cake tester or thin knife blade and it is done when blade comes out clean.  Delicious with butter on the slices.  Makes 1 loaf.

Here is a close up of my lovely pink Mums!  I just love them!
Butterfly on Lantana Bush

This is a picture Hubby took in the front yard of this butterfly on the Lantana bush.  The bush is huge this year, at least 5 1/2 ' high and at least 6' across!!  It comes back every year and blooms until we have a frost.  When the leaves die, we cut it back to the ground.  This is the largest it has ever grown!  This particular plant is more than 5 yrs. old and we have moved it twice from the spot in the back yard to another and then eventually to the front yard where it is today.  Lantana has proved to be a very hearty and beautiful plant that attracks butterflies by the dozens.  It provides seasons of enjoyment!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today and do come again soon.
My heart to yours......

The apple bread sounds wonderful! I have good success with lantana also. The hummers and the butterflies love it. I am enjoying the bright sunny days and the cool breezes. This is my favorite time of the year.

The pink mums are beautifil, so pretty and unusual for fall! And the butterfly on the latana Bush! I'm glad you took a picture of just the bush from a distance so I could get an idea of what the whole thing looks like, it looks like it has both orange and pink blooms, how spectacular!! Why did you move it so many times?
