How To Eat A Fresh Apple

Friday was our 39th anniversary, yes 39 for some reason I posted 38 on the last post I must of lost a year some where.

We could not have asked for a better day! It was high 70's
sunny, and the color was was amazing.

I was standing on a covered bridge taking this picture.
It is hard to see but there is a class of school children wading in the water I believe taking a science class. That is how warm and lovely it was. 

This is a very small sample of what I bought at King Arthur flour.
It is one amazing place if you bake. The smell of bread just fills the store and the cafe was so amazing. I spend more than I should have but I just couldn't help myself. I see some great baked things in my future!
We hit lots of antique stores nothing. We go to a Vermont distillery and yummmmmmmmmm this is like baileys that taste like a lovely hint of apples and maple not cheap but so worth it. I see a trip back to Vermont before Christmas.

Saturday rainy and cold I went to my guild meeting but left early.
Once home I made a batch of pasta sauce to use up the last of my tomatoes and a homemade soup. It tasted so good on a chilly day.

Sunday back to beautiful and time with Miss B! apple picking,
She just loved it so much we had to stop her when we had between us 18 lbs of apples.

She is so stinking cute she ate 2 whole apples while picking.
If a man is alone in the woods and he speaks, and there is no wife to hear him, is he still wrong. :)

What a beautiful girl that Miss B. She knows that apples are good for her. I dehydrate apples and store them in Mason jars to keep them crisp and we eat them like candy. So yummy.
I haven't picked apples this year, maybe next year.

Happy 39th Anniversary, next year will be a special milestone.

The scenery looks beautiful. We had warm temperatures and rain today but it was welcome because the grown was very dry.

Gorgeous shots and weather, love this time of year for hiking and just getting out. I love fresh apples, need to get more this week, so hope the orchards don't run out;) Where is the flour place? I always use theirs and would love to visit, next time I am up.

Just put King Arthur on our list of places to visit. If I run out of money there, can I put the blame on you?? ;o)

Little kids seems to think it is so much fun picking apples. I just let them because my back/legs/arms can't take it anymore, LOL.

Apple trees were hit hard around these parts as we had a bad winter and cool spring. We've been a bit disappointed in some varieties this year..the taste just wasn't as good as usual. One of our orchards has a festival where any child can come and pick as much as they can carry for free...end of the season I guess! Happy 39th anniversary! That store looks like a place I would really enjoy and also spend too much money in! Your area of the country is alive with color this time of year. I've never been to Vermont and my goal is to get to the East coast one of these days. I so want to spend an October day in Salem, Mass! Have a good week and the answer to the question at the end of your post is a big..YES!
