Natural childbirth was easier than making candy apples - - well...at least the labour was shorter!!!
I very nearly threw the first batch out. See...I got this idea that I should put them on wax paper to cool.
This is NOT correct. Don't do this.
The wax from the wax paper stuck to the apples - sorta melted it to it. UGH!!!! But Hubby stopped me from tossing the whole bunch, we thought about it for a minute, and decided to try "burnishing" the bottoms of the apples with a hot wet cloth, and that fixed them right up! The second batch went much better - - this time I sprayed the cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Speaking of Hubby .. neither one of us can EVER remember our wedding date. I usually keep it narrowed down to somewhere between the 7th and the 10th....but I'm never sure. We got married on Thanksgiving weekend 2000.
I woke him up this morning - - and we snarled at each other for a few minutes - - trying to get some paper work done....I was running late....I didn't have a good night in the first place....a little stressed out....and the dumb ass insisted on suggesting that I....I?....I was GRUMPY!!!!!
The snarling continued until I was just about to head out the door, and I caught sight of the champagne glasses from our wedding in the china cabinet, with the wedding date engraved on them.
Happy Anniversary sweetheart!
