Caramel Apple Sauce

Sunday, September 20, 2009

I felt like I had a pretty productive day.

Up at 10:30 am, walked Izzy, then back home for coffee 🙂

Lunch was yummy leftover Spanish Rice Bake–DEFINITELY a keeper.  Even better reheated.  With a slice of whole grain toast with a bit of butter.

While Kimm watched the football game, I did some organizing.  An overflowing bin of paperwork is now just a bin full to the top of paperwork that either needs to be filed or thrown away.  Baby steps.

Afternoon walk with Izzy and then a failed trip to Bed Bath and Beyond to get a couch blanket for Izzy to lay on.  They were out–which made me not happy.  But maybe we’ll find something at the Big E tomorrow night.

Delicious dinner of veggie burgers, mashed potatoes and refried beans (me only–I know, I’m strange!).  Very filling which makes me happy.

Called my parents after a shower.

Now just relaxing.  We are going to watch a movie and have some popcorn.  It is so cute–Izzy is actually lying in the door to the computer room tonight, keeping us company.

Now, the caramel apple sauce.

I made this yesterday to top our french toast for lunch.  It utilized an apple that was beyond the point of eating (i.e., NOT crisp at all).  I was so happy to use it up because I hate wasting food.  And this was so delicious, you would NEVER guess that the apple was second rate.

Caramel Apple Sauce

Serves one (generous serving) or two (average servings)


1 apple (I used Yellow Delicious), peeled and sliced

1/2 tablespoon butter

1 and 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar

To make:

Heat a small frying pan on medium heat.  Add butter and brown sugar, swirl to combine once butter melts.   Add apple slices to pan and stir to coat with butter/sugar mixture.  Cook over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes until apples are soft and mixture caramelizes.  Use as a topping for french toast, or pancakes, or ice cream, or even alone.
