T@tT: ad hoc at home Apple Fritters

Sorry for being absent from "the table" for so long.
It's a busy time for me but I still enjoy the time in the kitchen where I feel most comfortable and in command.  Hmm....maybe I should pretend my students are vegetables, fruits and everything else I cut, dice, chop, sear, saute, roast and bake.  That's it - pretend  my students are food!

HAHA....all kidding aside, these Apple Fritters were fun to make.
Tasty, fairly easy to make and not too messy.
Younger son helped prep and eat as he loves apples.

Cutting apples into matchsticks was unexpected
An easy batter of flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and milk.

Three or four apple matchsticks gently dropped into the hot oil. 

About two minutes later (after being turned over) they're done.
 Warm soft apple slices inside, crispy crunch dough on the outside. The touch of cinnamon worked perfectly with the apples.  Drizzling with Nutella would have made them perfect...lol.
Ready for dessert.  
One last thing - I actually sewed this past weekend and made the January Lucky Stars BOM block called Wonky Star.  I like Wonky - impossible to ruin a Wonky star.
Wonky Star:  Lucky Stars BOM
Gotta go...
Go visit Debbie at her Table!

History Quilter Podcast Episode 36 Classroom Management

I recorded a new episode last Sunday but have not had a chance until now to publish this blogpost about it.  History Quilter Podcast Episode 36 where I talk about Classroom Management and is a recap of my first week of student teaching is now available on iTunes, Podbean and Stitcher Radio.

If there was anything in the podcast that you would like to know more about, please comment or send me an e-mail.  My apologies for not having the time to write up a detailed post about the episode with links, photos, etc.

Hope you've all had a good week. Right now I'm looking forward to the probability that with a three day weekend, I'll have some time to play with fabric - I am in definitely in need of it!

Have a great Saturday,
