Leftovers. That’s the third best thing about Thanksgiving. (First is the “Thankful List”, second is the wonderful food, and third is the leftovers.) I hope you all had a wonderful celebration of reflecting on the things you are thankful for. We’re still in holiday-mode (that means hanging out, watching movies, knitting, shopping, etc.) but I did want to share a recipe with you today, as well as listing the November Blog Contest winners before it gets to be December. This recipe was a new one that I tried last week and the Elves and WH pronounced it good, so I’m sharing it.
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups diced apples
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
12 oz. butterscotch morsels
Beat oil, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Add in flour and cinnamon and mix well. Add apples and nuts. Spread batter evenly into a 9 x 13 greased pan. Sprinkle the butterscotch chips over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or less.)
And the randomly drawn winners (two winners, because we pick two any time the contest entries go over 500 comments), are: Stephanie in Wisconsin and Tammy (I’m not sure where Tammy lives, but I’ve emailed her – so if you’re a Tammy and you wonder if it’s you, check your email!) Both have received a Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate (you know, to entice them to continue to build their KADD …)
December ushers in our annual Random Acts of Kindness weekly contests. Check back on Monday for details. The prizes each week include Wollmeise and other fun things!
