This past weekend we added another member to our family. No, no. Not another human or animal member. We bought a kayak to go with our paddle boards. Now all four of us can enjoy being outside on the water at the same time.
Although, I have to admit that I’m a little leery of being in the middle of mangroves with no where to go and seeing an alligator. It’s a real fear. The other day we took them out, and I just had to put that thought at the very back of my mind and just enjoy the beautiful scenery.
On days that we are spending the entire day outside, I don’t want to come home and cook dinner or dessert. Using a crock pot is a great way to have both food groups ready as soon as we get home.
I have to admit that we have had two crock pots since we got married, and I have barely used either of them. They are great for having food ready with little to no work, so I really don’t know why I don’t pull them out more often. That’s probably something I should add to my list of things to do this year.
Everyone in our family enjoys this sweet and sour crock pot chicken, and I love how easy and delicious it is to have ready. Lately we have been enjoying it with a batch of easy cauliflower rice to make it a little bit healthier.
One thing that I have always wanted to do is make an easy crock pot dessert, so I decided to make a batch of applesauce.
I have been partnering with Crunch Pak apples for the past few years. We love having bags of ready to eat apple slices in our fridge. They are the perfect snack to grab and go on our outdoor adventures.
Their new apple rings are also a fun way to enjoy an apple a day. They are great layered with peanut butter and granola, but my favorite way to use them is in this apple pecan upside down cake. It’s so pretty and tastes amazing with a scoop of ice cream. Just saying.
Red Hot candies give this easy Crock Pot Cinnamon Strawberry Applesauce a sweet and spicy flavor.
A few weeks ago I had some bags of apples in my fridge that the kids were ignoring. I didn’t want them to go bad, so I decided to make a batch of crock pot cinnamon strawberry applesauce.
The best part about this recipe is how easy it is. In fact, it’s so easy that I hesitate to call it a recipe. All you do is dump your bags of apples, strawberries, and candies one by one into the crock pot. Then just put the lid on and turn it to high. Four hours later your house will smell amazing.
All that is left to do is puree the applesauce to your desired consistency. Some days I like to enjoy it smooth and warm, and other days I like to eat it chunky and cold. There is really no right or wrong way to enjoy this sweet treat.
