It’s Apple Picking Time

“There is little choice in a barrel of rotten apples.” — William  Shakespeare

Apples in the trees

Apples on the ground

Apples, apples are all around!

We went apple picking this weekend. We munched, crunched, and chewed our way through the apple orchard. Thoughts of apple pies, apple crisp, apple cake, and apple sauce teased my taste buds. As we picked and stuffed apples into our bag, I imagined the delicious aroma of baking apples wafting throughout our house.

The apples are now sitting in a nice bowl on the counter. They look delicious. They taste delicious. And one of these days I’ll dig out some apple recipes and convince someone to bake all those sweet-smelling goodies for me!

Meanwhile, pick one of these tasty apple books.
