Apple Sauce


Apple Sauce
Originally uploaded by ** Robyn **.
Oh, dear! What is happening to me?!?

After years of avoiding the kitchen whenever possible I am now looking for things to cook that have interesting ingredients that I can draw in my newly started recipe journal. I dragged Number 2 Son through the supermarket this afternoon in a quest for a lemon so that I could make some apple sauce to go with the pork chops that I had put out to defrost. I know that you can buy apple sauce in little jars and bottles from the supermarket but I have been spoilt by some that I bought from Tesco when we were in the UK last December/January. It was nice and chuncky. The ready made sauce that we get here in Australia is more like baby food.

I do hope that my sons find this journal to my newly found interest in the culinary arts amusing when they read it in the distant future. Their memories of me will certainly be of the cans and jars queen.

Both pages are done in Faber Castell Artist Pens and Koh-I-Noor Watercolor Wheel that I found in the junk that Number One Son left behind when he moved out of home 3 years ago. I bought it for him for Christmas when he was at high school and doing visual arts. He never used them so I don't think that he will mind if I do.

Now this is a great idea! Your art and your cooking give each other little nudges! Your apples are so light-filled and lovely, Robyn.
