No, that's not it at all...I have an abundance of apples.
A good friend and I went apple picking a week or so ago and every corner I turn there they are - those crisp, sweet/tart, red and green delectable pieces of fruit!
I hadn't really given it much thought until we were out in the orchard that day. I heart apples!
There was this little sign that said that "sampling was allowed" so I took full advantage of that let me tell you.
The day was beautiful, sunny, blue skies, warm with a cool breeze - almost fall, the perfect day to pluck. The orchard had a few varieties to choose from however we picked Cortland and Empire (and I sampled both prior to purchase)
We walked around chatting, giggling and picking. It was almost serene. And then something happened....I bit into an apple the size of an orange and a feeling of euphoria came over me - I was in love with the apple all over again!!
But much like being in love with anything you can over indulge. This my friends is why I have multitudes of apples in the house.
I happen to have THE best chewy oatmeal apple cookie recipe for you though!!
