I love pretty much all things apple. My husband learned this very early on in our marriage. So when I got the email from my favorite apple orchard announcing that the early apples were ready to pick, I got there as soon as I could… like opening day!
My husband & two oldest were at the Bible Bee all day today, so it was a perfect day for me to take my two youngest to pick apples & raspberries. Landon took off with his bucket towards the Zestar apples, while Aaron & I hit the raspberries.
Landon had to drag me away from the raspberries in order to help him pick apples. There were so many! Wait… look at those ones… and those over there! Just a couple more! *drags me by the arm*
Since I knew that the other half of the family was going to be gone nearly all day, I wanted to have a little surprise for them when they got home. So I ended up making a raspberry/blueberry pie & an apple pie. I had help…
I did save some for eating. And I made sort of a chunky applesauce/pie filling for our pancakes…
Ever had applejacks? Not the cereal, but flapjacks with apple pie filling? I hadn’t either until I went to this little cute little cafe in Brule, WI. called Twin Gables. Oh my, yum-ness. I will post recipes after breakfast.
Thanks for stopping by,
