Yesterday was back to school day for the kids here. Teachers, like Pete, had seven days back before yesterday. And then today, of course, we’re getting hit by Irma so the school was on a two hour delay. It’s been a strange beginning to the school year. Sounds like reason to give a teacher an apple. But apples, everyone can give those. How about a DIY pasta sauce apple? Now that’s something different.

I put a few together using an 8oz. jar of Rita’s Wooden Spoon. The sauce is the perfect size for this apple craft.
