Caramel Apple Time!

Good morning! Another day off of school for me!

I had mentioned that I would be making caramel apples this weekend.  I met Makenna through a mentorship program for student athletes a few years ago and now we are really close, and I am actually finding refuge with her family during Sandy’s super storm. We made them Saturday night, and I definitely had my fair share of sugary goodness Smile

Here’s the process!

First, we melted the caramel and put the sticks in the apples.  We found a recipe that said to put marshmallows in the caramel, which actually helped the caramel stick to the apples.  Last year the caramel ran off of the apples, which made it less sugary and healthier!  I totally liked the addition of mallows!

I think caramel apples are one of my favorite parts of fall!

What’s you favorite part of fall?

    you need to tell me what’s up with your ankle?!
    I hope you’re having a great Tuesday!
    xoxo!

    • I have a light sprain…just enough that it’s uncomfortable but the bruising has gone away and it’s not really swollen! Just so annoying!!! I’m supposed to go to PT but don’t really have the time…any suggestions?!!?!?!

      • I have a lot of suggestions! 🙂
        …put heat on your ankle when you wake up in the morning. Before bed: write the ABC’s with your foot (point your big toe up in the air and move it around using your ankle) do 3×10 heel raises (flex your calf and come up on your toes) and ICE for 10-min, take a couple ibuprofen and drink tons of water!
        xoxo!

      • You’re the best! I will be trying that today 🙂
