on saturday we drove to battleview orchards in search of pumpkins, apples, cider, and all that other jazz that makes you want to take an abundance of photos just like you did at this same time last year. it was hot, then it was cold, and then it was sunny, and then it was cloudy. honestly, we drove an hour for the cider donuts alone.
the kind of donuts that make grease spots on the bag before you even pay and leave you with cinnamon sugar sprinklings all over your clothes. best eaten dunked in hot cider, followed by drinking the hot cider with floating donut bits. luckily, we had a sam wiggins to help with clean up duty.
i'm always tempted to get some donuts for the road, though day-after donuts just aren't the same. five year engagement-- stale donuts. anyone?
sixteen pounds worth of winesap apples. anyone who comes to our house in the next week leaves with an apple.
two thumbs up for the pumpkin muffins too.
what to do with all those apples? commence the apple peeling hand cramp for applesauce and an apple crisp.
