Really, what could be better than this? The weather was perfect-bright and sunny, breezy, not hot, not cool. It really was perfect- and the perfect day to spend some time at a nearby park before heading to the apple orchard.
We brought home about 40 pounds of McIntosh apples. And while I suspect that a good majority of them will be eaten out of hand, it should be fun to find ways to use them up. Next weekend we'll be picking up the "seconds" of apples to turn into applesauce, so these will be put to eating use...and more eating use...maybe a pie...maybe a crisp. The mind reels with all the possibilities. With all the different seasons of produce, apple season is our favorite. Happy Fall everyone!
