Apple Picking

We had gorgeous fall weather this weekend, so Caleb and I took advantage of it and finally went to the apple orchard. It's pretty much the end of the season, but we were able to pick 20 pounds of apples.  We made applesauce for the first time with some of them (recipe coming!) and it was really fun to have Caleb in the kitchen with me for a change.  We just had a lot of fun all weekend together, and I'm a little bummed we're back to Monday morning.  Here's to hoping your week is off to a great start!

  7. How fun! That's crazy that even at the end of the season you can still get apples. It's kind of a novelty here in California that if you don't get up to apple country within the first few weeks you are out of luck.

  10. Those are some great pics! I made applesauce too recently from a recipe I copied from my friend Laura. It ended up being really good! Oh by the way I made your pumpkin apple bread for Nolan's party, and it was a huge hit! It was really yummy. Plus I made him pancakes for his b-day from your recipe too! :)
