Isn't it funny how addicting new things can be? Its like you find something that you never did before and now its the best thing ever! Jim and I have a theory about Ginny dog. We believe that everything is her favorite thing... Want to go for a walk... yes its my favorite thing! Want to go play in the yard... yes its my favorite thing! Want to go for a car ride... yes its my favorite thing! Want to sit and watch tv... yes its my favorite thing!
Have you ever seen this dog diary vs cat diary? It pretty much explains everything about cats and dogs. One of my new favorite things is toast. My husband just won a toaster at work. Its a fancy kitchenaid one with all the bells and whistles. It beeps at me when its done, and if I don't get it fast enough it lowers it and warms it for me. It is toasting bliss. I made toast probably once a month for sandwiches.. before we got it. Now I have toast almost daily. Love my toast!
We also recently upgraded our cable from basic. I didn't really need the new channels but they were basically free when we increased our internet speed... which I really really wanted. So now I have HGTV.. and it just calls me with shows like Love It or List It. A new favorite thing!
Sometimes though you have old favorite things. One of mine is my apple peeler, slicer, and corer. It has come out every fall for the past 8 years.. and it always becomes my favorite thing. If you do not have one I highly recommend you get one.. you will love it.
I used it to make these apple chips which are amazing... and addicting... and also a new FAVORITE thing. These make the house smell WONDERFUL. They are also a very hands off recipe so you can cut the apples and do other things around the house. Clean, Laundry, or watching the latest episode of Love it or List it! Whatever works for you :)
3 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 200 degree F. For easy clean up line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Slice the apples into thin slices. You can use an apple peeler, a mandolin, or just cut really thin slices by hand. Line the baking sheets with the apples. They should be in a single layer, but if you have some overlap it will be ok.
Premix the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of the apple slices.
Bake for one hour, and then flip the apple chips. Bake for one more hour. Leave the chips in the oven while it cools down (I waited about 30 minutes).
Enjoy the chips! Jim and I devoured ours in one setting :- )
