Weekend Apple Picking

This is the time of the year for weekend apple picking! KN and I thought it was the perfect thing to do on a beautiful fall day. Neither of us had been apple picking before so we really didn’t know how it would work. When you arrive and before they let you into the orchard, you pay for the size container you want to fill up. There were so many types of apples that I never heard of! I stuck with honey crisp, which is the kind my son Gage prefers.

It’s was so fun! When you find a full tree you can literally fill up your bag in 2 seconds, they practically just fall off.  (I must admit that picking apples goes way faster than strawberry picking, which we did here.) I recommend that you bring along bug spray, there were a ton of mosquitos. Also, I do not recommend wearing sandals since you have to walk through tall wet grass and over smooshed apples on the ground.

 My project this week is to figure out what to do with my fridge full o’ apples. Can you send me some recommendations please? Maybe I’ll make applesauce since it’s easy peasy and maybe some good old fashioned apple crisp, also easy. I don’t make apple pie because of the whole crust fiasco. And I also do not can, because I don’t even know what that is…..

I’ll share what recipe I decided on this week, maybe one of these: apple cheddar waffle paninibutternut and apple harvest soupquinoa apple salad? Stay tuned!

By the way, we picked our apples at Apple Holler in Wisconsin which is just over the border, there is a ton of things for little kids to do there as well!

Hot Dogs & Bell Sleeves

Chicago blogger

If you’re eating a hot dog in Chicago, it’s gotta be Chicago style, right? Yikes! I know that’s how it’s supposed to go but I can honestly say, I love ketchup. Oh and this bell sleeve, cold shoulder top, I love it too. Just have to be careful not to get your bell sleeves hung…

crushing on the midi skirt

just browsing

Not sure if you noticed, but I seem to be having a thing with midi skirts. I’d like to say it’s because they are sophisticated and make me look all elegant and put together, but I think the real reason is because they are not shorts or a short skirt. My mom has pointed out,…

I had a few girlfriends over the other night for a little wine/salad/cake sesh on the patio and besides the usual yackety yack, that my son said was “so loud”, I actually had a lightbulb moment. It occurred to me that my friends, that are not bloggers, don’t know the ins and outs of how blogging…
