Whatcha Working on Wednesday ...

Good morning all!
I have been busy getting craft projects finished up.
There are no more "Christmasy " crafts being done here. lol
I am ready to move on to something else. :)
I had gotten a bag of Granny Smith apples a few days and wanted to make use of them. What better way than to make some dumplings!!! I have always used my mom's recipe of making a pie like crust, cutting it , etc, etc. now don't get me wrong, it was good! But after making these and eating some last night... mom's recipe is at the bottom of the barrel. ( good thing my mom doesn't have a computer). tee hee

These dumplings are made with Mt. Dew!! Yes, Mt. Dew!! The kind in the green can, that you drink, that is full of sugar. lol
You can find the recipe and a great tutorial HERE . They are so easy!!!!

Here is a pic of my Christmas tree I took while sitting in the dark last night. I do that occasionally. lol

I will be back later.
I want to see what everyone else is working on today. :)
