An apple a day....

But I think I have enough for a few months!
This past weekend was chilly but sunny and bright...a perfect time to be we headed over to the apple orchard.
We had a fun afternoon picking (and eating) apples.

I think this picture has Christmas card written all over it!

My oldest daughter wants to make an apple pie-her favorite-she's just waiting for mom to get the pie crust ready....i.e. get to the grocery store and buy one. One day, yeah, one day, I'll try crust from scratch

Since I don't think we'll ever be able to eat all the apples we have, I was looking around for some other goodies we could make and found some yummy ones! Like oh I wish I had these ingredients in the house yummy!

Like This recipe from How Does She? . Sounds so delicious. I'm almost afraid to make it. I might eat is all. But I have to. It sounds just too good. Anything that is described as dipped in heaven is my kind of goodie! I've never made carmel sauce so I can't wait to try it.

And this recipe for apple crisp. Right up my alley. I don't really care for apple crisp with oatmeal in the topping. Now if you made if for me I'd eat it but not my favorite. There's an easy apple sauce recipe too.

And a recipe for a different take on the classic apple pie at Hoosier Homemade. Yum for walnuts.

Oh, and apples are great for breakfast. I'd love to wake up to these apple strudel muffins. With a cup of coffee.

I'm linking up to Weekend Bloggy Reading with Amanda at Serenity Now.
