Quick Book Review - Thursday Edition:
The Cold Vanish by Jon Billman
The book is about people who have gone missing in the wilderness in America/Canada. The central story revolves around the disappearance of Jacob Gray, and his father's quest to find him.
The narration was good/okay overall, but it got boring at times, so much so that I was left wondering why I was even reading this book? Luckily, it wasn't long, and I finished in a single afternoon.
I read different topics/genres, and the subject matter intrigued me, but it was more push to finish versus "I can't put it down."
My Last Minute Thoughts:
More reviews out soon~
Hope you are having a fantastic day!
Travel is such a bother right now, but luckily my trusty iPhone decided to unearth some memories today and found some lost footage of a visit to Inverness and Culloden. I made a very short video, enjoy!
How is it already November??
September and October flew by because life was so busy!
We took a road trip to Roswell, New Mexico, then returned home, repacked, and took a month-long road trip to Texas. #Yeah It was great to be able to travel again!
We also went apple picking, (worked of course), made a couple of videos, baked, met up with old friends, and chilled at the river and the lake. Oh! And there was also a hurricane hitting Texas while we were there and we had to nix the beach part of the trip.
"More than 100,000 Texas electricity customers without power after Nicholas. Restoring it to everyone could take days." Read about it here.
But all-in-all it was a nice adventure! If you missed those short posts I have listed them below.
While in Texas, we made another detour to meet up with friends at Boerne City Lake Park in Boerne, Texas. (Find it: 21 Upper Cibolo Creek Rd, 78006) The lake is approximately 1 mile northwest of Boerne off of Upper Cibolo Creek Road. Their website is here.
The weather was perfect! We lazed around, had a picnic, and just relaxed. Because it was during the week, we had the place almost entirely to ourselves.
And then it was time to go because there was a Hurricane building in the Gulf, and the weather was getting unpredictable. I do miss the meet-ups with friends and lazy days spent outside, just chilling. (But not enough to move back, lol)
More about this month-long trip later.
Not the prettiest apple pie I've ever made, but it was eaten so fast it didn't matter!
We went to pick apples here and had an excess of sweet, tasty apples that were begging to be cooked. I have tried a few recipes and most are full of unnecessary sugar. This simple recipe will make a delicious pie and doesn't require extra sugar or take all day to make.
I also bought a vegan pie crust and to make it even simpler. I used a large 10.5 deep dish pie plate, but you can adjust this simple recipe to fit your needs.
Simple Vegan Apple Pie
2 Prepared vegan pie crusts
2 pounds apples
2 cups natural vegan apple sauce (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350' (read the instructions on your pie crust)
Place one pie crust in the bottom of your pie pan.
Peel and cut your apples into thin slices.
Transfer apples into a medium bowl, sprinkle in spices and stir to coat.
Place coated apples in pie crust, add apple sauce till almost full and place the top pie crust over the apples.
Seal the edges, and cut small steam slices in top crust and gently brush with vegan butter.
Bake for for 50-60 minutes or until the apples are tender.
Allow to sit for 20+ minutes before cutting.
Tropical Depression/Hurricane Nicholas snuck up on us. We were already on the road to Texas when it hit. But we were still over 100+ miles away from the Gulf Coast and managed to miss most of the rain. It was downgraded to a tropical depression this morning and is dragging itself slowly over southeast Texas, leaving thousands in the dark and dumping a foot of rain. #OMG!
While waiting for the storm to pass, we decided to stay north of the Gulf Coast and visited River Park in Boerne, Texas. We had a lovely picnic on the river and avoided most of the weather.
The river was up due to the rains, but it was a nice break. There was plenty of wildlife out enjoying the overcast skies, and I'm sure, avoiding the high winds and rain south of us..
If you need a break watch the video...
