DSC_0682DSC_0679Last week Krista and I ventured out to a nearby apple orchard. We chose to go on a beautiful day that actually felt more like late summer than autumn, and we weren’t complaining. We went to Apple Land, which is home to beautiful orchards, a pumpkin patch and other family friendly activities. We took a trolly out to the orchards and walked around to decide which varieties we wanted to pick. And let me tell you, our bags didn’t stay empty for long! We loaded up on Gala, Honey Crisp and Macintosh apples and were talking about everything we wanted to make with them.

We’re already planning more outdoor activities like picnics and nature walks to be sure we soak up all that this season has to offer. Be sure to check back for some of the recipes we make using these apples (spoiler alert, I’ve already made apple crisp!) and feel free to share your favourite apple recipes in our comments section.
