On Sunday morning we woke up relatively early and drove up to North Carolina to go apple picking with some friends. We did this two years ago and ended up eating all the apples we got within about 2 weeks…making it not exactly worth the long car ride. So this time we bought twice as many apples and I almost made myself sick from eating so many while we were there – it’s pretty amazing to pick them straight from the tree and just crunch right in! So delicious!
There was also a beautiful field of pumpkins and sunflowers which I couldn’t resist taking photo of. Our friends used the day as an opportunity to take family photos but we on the other hand had hair sticking out in all directions and I looked like I’d been dragging through the corn maze backwards. Instead we just took photos of the flowers and ate some apple cider doughnuts.
Now I'll spend the rest of the week baking apple sauce...apple butter....apple pie...apple bread.....and anything else I can think of with apples in it! The house is going to smell amazing!
