An Apple A Day...

Okay so remember my post about how healthy we are? Let me re-phrase that. We don't EAT healthy, but for some reason we remain healthy. Well since that post, Daddy has been sick twice. But that's nothing new. He's always sick for some reason. He must not be eating enough junk food! Well, aside from a few breathing treatments due to the cold weather, and a snotty sneeze here and there, we remain relatively healthy. No fevers. No ear infections. No bronchitus, (yet) no runny noses, no flu,which seems to be going around these parts. And then, yesterday, after discarding the remains of the 4th or something like that apple of the day, I lost count, it occured to me. Maybe there IS some truth to that statement, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." My girls go to TOWN on apples. Last week, Winn Dixie had the bags of apples buy one, get one free, so I got two bags. That was less than a week ago and they're already gone. I had to get more this morning after Lexi threw an absolute FIT at the breakfast table that there were no more apples! What kind of kid gets mad about not having an apple??? I said, "How 'bout apple SAUCE? It's really the same thing." I buy the unsweetened.

I don't know if it's the apples or what, but I'm going to keep buying them just in case!

Eating apples is a chore for me. My kids love them, but somehow I hate them. Hey, I loved your posts about your hubby. So sweet. It's good for all of us to read about somebody loving their husband. It's encouraging. I think I'm going to give mine a squeeze.

hmm...my dad's theory is all the preservatives in everything keep us healthy, so we may be in for a batch of rough health, cause mom's taken to baking bread from, like flour and water...so no preservatives for me...
sniff!

Have you guys used your apple corer/potato peeler. I got one for myself and I love it. It can make curly fries and all kinds of cute things.
