Ripe for the Picking

I love apples, and I love apple picking, which makes it sort of surprising that we don't go to the local orchards all that often.  When we do, we're often past the peak for picking and it's already transitioning into the Fall festival season.  We got it exactly right this year, with perfect weather last weekend, and tons of varieties of gorgeous apples, ripe for the picking!

We brought home over 20 pounds of apples!  The first thing Joseph and I set out to do was make some apples muffins, using this recipe from Smitten Kitchen.  (We grated the apples instead of dicing them). We gave some to his teachers and some to his friends, and have been snacking on apples constantly - not sure what we're going to do with all the rest!

If you have a second, look back at these photo's from one time we went apple picking when Joe Joe was much younger, just over 3 years old.  So stinking cute!
