Apple Pie Enchiladas

I got this recipe from facebook

1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
6 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cinnamon (I have my cinnamon in a shaker bottle, so I just sprinkle some on each as I am rolling them) roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes, remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 45 minutes ..
Don’t rush the 45 minute resting time for the sauce on the enchiladas before baking, this step helps to magically transforms the flour tortillas into a faux pasty dough

Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until golden

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week.  Things have been nice here.  Warm temperatures and sunshine.  I LOVE it!  I know it won’t last but it sure is nice for now.  We did build a fire yesterday and I already have one going this morning but it is December, right.  I thought I would share with you all a fun craft we did at church Saturday.

But, of course, we had to eat first.  Can you see the red striped dish in this picture?  I would have never guess what that is.  It is turnips!!  I have never seen turnips that look like that.  They were really good though.  I would like to find out the name of them.  That would be the type I would like to have next year.  The lady who brought them didn’t know anything about them.  She had bought them at a local store.  If any of you know the name of them, I would appreciate you letting me know.

A lady from our church had all these little terra cotta pots.  She painted them for us.  Actually she did all the prep work for the craft day.  All we had to do was put everything together.  I wanted to get detailed pictures for you all but once we started on them, everything went too fast.  Anyway, here is the finished product.

Aren’t they cute!  I made the red one, Grace made the purple, Julie’s is next and we all worked on the pink one.  It is for Jess.  I think they are adorable.  They are supposed to be ornaments but we don’t have our tree up yet.  As of now, they are brightening up our dining room window sill.

Well, time for us to get started on school.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Ain’t that two beautiful girls!

Yesterday was very nice here.  Wonderful tempertures, beautiful sunshine.  Our church sponsors, once a year, a sportmans banquet, or as we call it a “critter chompin”  It is a lot of fun with lots of good fun.  We had a guest speaker who brought a good message.  We also had some funny stories but of course the highlight of the evening was the food.  We really didn’t have much wild “critter” though.  One bear dish, mostly deer and just regular food.  I took tuna cakes, homemade rolls, a molasses (stack) cake, and some hot cider.  There was so much food it would be impossible for me to name it all.   I’m so sorry you missed it, Dave.

Today has been another beautiful day.  I think though the forecasters are calling for rain the first of the week.  I think I better hurry out to my “green swing” and enjoy the beauty that God has created.  Take care and God bless.
