Fall is seriously turning into my favorite season. I love the weather. I love the cooler days but still sunny and beautiful. I love the leaves changing. I love the weekend events: apple picking, pumpkin picking, baking with all of fall’s awesome fruits and veggies (we made banana bread this weekend), and playground and farm visits with the kids.
This weekend we made our annual apple picking trip. Everyone always asks where we go, and every year we keep going back to the same place because it’s NEVER busy, the apples are delicious and it’s beautiful. We drive out to Carlson Orchards in Harvard, MA just to get our favorite apples, Macoun. We had another beautiful day this year with tons of apples, cider donuts and apple cider of course. Brendan loves picking the “gigantic” ones and we love eating them too while we’re walking through the orchard. He always finishes up his apple picking adventures with a cider donut and some apple cider. Yum!
Now onto what we can make with our apples. We already made homemade apple sauce. Brendan and Braden enjoyed some of that awesome-ness. We will make one, or possibly two, apple cakes and maybe even an apple crisp (or apple crist as Brendan says it’s called.) 🙂
Stay tuned for those delicious recipes, I will be sure to share my gluten-free apple recipes when I make them.
