My Yummy Treats for the FOP exchange/ (Faternal Order of Police)
Oh My I had to try Caramel apples too.
After some fail attempts I found a trick::: Want to know you say???

Grab a big pot and boil water. dip your apples in boiling water for less than 5 seconds and then dry and place in fridge. They will look like they are ruined apples. This takes the wax off.
After they have been in fridge for like overnight. Melt you caramels or make your own caramel. I have done both but I like easy. Dip cold apples into caramel and drip off excess. if going to decorate here do so or place in fridge to harden. Next is dip in melted chocolate and garnish with what your heart desires. replace in fridge and when hard then wrap pretty. I kept mine wrapped and placed in the garage because of had very cold temps outside. KEEP cold till ready to eat. YUMMY....

Happy Birthday Dear Andrew

Andrew turns 9. Oh, where did the time go. Wasn't he just born yesterday...Well the best things about him not being born just yesterday is that we are both sleeping through the night. We celebrated his birthday earlier in the week and went Perkins for dinner. We all love breakfast food for dinner. The day of his birthday we left to go to Twin Falls. Emily had a clogging workshop all day Saturday and then they performed what they learned. She and her friends Courtney and Katherine road down with me and they are the best girls in the world...they even played some of my ERA.

Happy 9th Birthday Andrew...We love you
