Apple Picking

We finally got to go apple picking this past weekend and had a blast. My friend, Sue, told us about Long Meadow Farm in Hope, NJ so we decided to give it a whirl. They had 12 varieties of apples and let me tell you that Dave and Isabella sampled each kind. Isabella took her pumpkin picking responsibility very seriously, selecting the most perfect one. Dave was nervous watching all the other dads struggling to carry 10+lb pumpkins to their minivans. I must say that he was quite relieved when Isabella patted a little 3 pounder, calling it her own. The pumpkin was the perfect addition to our festive mums. If I get adventurous maybe we will do something nutritional with the pumpkin (i.e. toasted seeds, pie, etc). So besides our mums and pumpkin, we now we have a ton of apples, which are fine to munch on by themselves. I did attempt to make apple spice muffins today, however the baking powder poured out a bit too fast and the result was less than appetizing. The fact that Dave refused to eat the mufin says it all. Oh, well, tomorrow is another day! Oh, here is the link for Long Meadow Farm if you want to check them out
