Yum. Audrey and I made caramel apples together last weekend. Last year, we tried the pre-made caramel wrap things, but they didn’t turn out very well or taste very good so this year we bought a bag of caramel to do it the old fashioned way. Audrey was in charge of unwrapping all of the caramels (and sneaking a few into her mouth along the way). Then we melted the caramel in the microwave. That worked okay, but I think we’d have had better luck using the stove. I need a double boiler. We didn’t have sticks for our apples so we just rolled the apples around in the caramel as best we could. They weren’t pretty but the tasted delicious.

We’ve been to two orchards so far this season. I think I could go to one every weekend and never get tired of them. Our favorite is Tanner’s. They have so much fun stuff for the kids. There are goats and llamas to feed, a barrel train ride, horse drawn carriage rides, pony rides, a kid-sized corn maze, live music, and of course amazing food. We brought home a bag of apples, peach salsa, apple cider, and a fresh apple pie. Yum.
We haven’t yet done any apple or pumpkin picking. I think the girls might still be a little too young for this year.
I know it isn’t “officially” fall until later this month, but in my world fall has most certainly begun. School is in session, the weather’s getting cooler, and some of our leaves are already starting to change. Even better, the seasonal delicacies are starting to appear! A few days ago, my mom and I made a run to Barnes and Noble and both enjoyed a slice of Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake. It was fresh and delicious. I’m actually not a huge fan of pumpkin flavored foods so I won’t be eating a ton of them this fall, but that first one is always a special treat.
