Quick today, lot’s going on…….

Scrambled Eggs & Warm Cinnamon Apples 



Warm Cinnamon Apples


1 Apple, Chopped

1 T. Water

1//4 tsp Vanilla

1 packet Truvia

Place all ingredients in a baggie. Seal tightly and shake vigorously, or you know…..until it’s all mixed up real good.

Vent the baggie about an inch. Place on a microwave safe plate and microwave for about 2 minutes!
