...and burned the apples I was cooking for applesauce. I don't even have a good excuse like, watching the Squiggle. She was happily riding her pony. I was busy daydreaming. So maybe that is a good excuse. We all need a brain break, right?
Unfortunately my little vacation came at the expense of Squiggle's snack. Apparently when you simmer something the moisture content is reduced. Who knew? On the plus side, I was experimenting so I just made a small batch. Only five apples were burned. I could just throw them out, but I'm tired of wasting food. We are experiencing a financial crunch right now and there is a self-imposed moratorium on buying new food. So I will eat these apples. If I can. Call it a tough love lesson to myself. Perhaps if I have to eat the food I destroy through inattention and carelessness, I'll be more careful.
