Hot Caramel Dip~ Published In Mary Engelbreit's New Cookbook

Well ready or not Autumn is here.  The Bible is sure accurate when it reads~

James 4:14

 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away
Time has a way of slipping by without us noticing if we are not careful. The older I get the more I realize just how important it is to cherish each and every moment. The little things are the most important in our lives.
It is so hard to believe that this is my 19Th year of homeschooling. Each and every September that I can remember I would load my children up in and we would head over the bridge to Kansas to the Jones Orchard. We would be greeted by Mrs. Jones in her cute bonnet. She was the farm grandmother type and such a delight to visit with. She would remember our names and make our day with her smile. She sold her goods for only pennies and you could pick a 5 gallon pail of apples for only $5.00. Pumpkins would be in a 50 cent pile, a dollar pile or a two dollar pile. We would buy squash of every kind. The whole back of our car would be piled high. Apple picking day was such a delight to us. I would always make this dip on that day to celebrate the beginning of many apple family favorites that would be in store on the Shindorf table for that Fall season.

Here is our favorite Crockpot Hot Apple Dip~ This recipe will be featured in the  new Mary Engelbreit ~Winter 2010/2011 Cookbook. It will be on sale the first part of November. I am so excited to get my autographed copy! It looks wonderful from what I have seen of it so far!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Mix together all ingredients and put in crockpot on low. Cook for about 3 hours! Enjoy~ 

My favorite sayings are~ "We are making memories."  and " Cherish the moment."
We just never know when our last day on earth will be or how long we will have those we love. So~ I think it is so important to live every day as if it could be our last. Little did we know~ the  year before last  was the last time we will get to have our favorite~Apple Picking Day! Mr. Jones has suffered a stroke and Mrs. Jones has cancer. Now don't be sad for them. They are saved~born again Christians and have their reservations made for a Homecoming in Heaven. I am sure they will find the Apple Trees first!  But~would you please remember to say a prayer for them and their family. We will surely miss them and the love they spread through their beloved little Orchard.
Although we will have to find another place to pick our apples ~it will never be the same. I will cherish our time at the Jones Orchard forever and hold the memories in my heart! Mr. and Mrs. Jones you both are in our hearts and prayers!
