ANNOUNCEMENT

I’d like to tell you that I’m taking a blogging vacation for the next 10 days. I am currently on a break from school and would like to take the next 10 days to give my brain a break. After I complete a class, my brain has been worked quite hard and feels a bit like jello. 😊 🤣 I have no major plans, other than to relax and spend time with family. This is a necessary form of stress relief for me.

Therefore, there will be no main posts from Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 30, 2018.  There will be morning recipes and evening quotes through Friday, September 21, 2018, since they are completed and already scheduled. However, there will be no posts at all next week. I will be back with all posts on Monday October 1, 2018. My next Fit by 50 post will be on Thursday, October 4, and will combine weeks 42 through 44.


This week I’ve decided to continue highlighting my love of vintage cooking. Last week, I highlighted 18th century cooking. This week, I’m widening the scope, and focusing on the 19th and 20th century. Since it’s apple season, I’m going to focus on apple recipes.

Okay, so I slipped back to the 1700’s, but I couldn’t resist this Townsend recipe for Apple Turnovers from the 1758 cookbook “The Compleat Housewife” by Eliza Smith. They were actually called “Apple Pasties”, an “ancestral version” the modern day turnover.

If you’d like to see my posts from last week, which featured recipes from the Townsends, FOLLOW THIS LINK. You can find the Townsends channel HERE.

About Tamara Hoerner (1171 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
