We cover a lot of ground in one hour. At the end of the session today, our helper wrote down tasks for each of us on a piece of her white letterhead. She keeps a copy.
I won't write what it says for H., but here's what it says for me:
Alice=Baking foods not desserts.
This is not new, I have tried it before, but I like this helper, and her support, insights and sound advice. [I also like her sense of style.] The idea is to focus on delicious soups, spinach pie, veggie lasagna, etc. Family dinners. I'm all for that, and have tried that. But I have a renewed commitment to make more healthful things, but still to indulge my dessert baking for gatherings/parties/bake sales.
This afternoon, I peeled Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp and tiny apples with rosy-tinged flesh and made applesauce and then tonight, applesauce muffins, using 1/2 spelt flour and 1/2 white flour, cutting the sugar in half and decreasing the butter. They're good.
