I might need an intervention

First apple picking, then apple butter, now an apple fest. Yum.
Yesterday was so much fun and I tried two new kinds of apples I'd never even heard of before - Cameo and Jonagold. Simply delightful.

We're coming to the end of the apple season, but I believe I'm making pies as my contribution to Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe by then I'll be sick of them? But I doubt it. They're one of my favorite parts about fall!

Do you have a favorite seasonal fruit or vegetable? Are you as obsessed with it as I am with apples?

Applemania! love it. Especially this year and I don't know why. Maybe because I got some awesome apples at an orchard in Illinois. Maybe it's because Mandy said she'd send some of the applebutter y'all made! Maybe it's because I've discovered that thinly sliced apples go well in a grilled cheese!
Anyway, I hear ya. Bet those pies will be terrific. As far as I'm concerned, Thanksgiving dinner could be solely pies - yum! Happy baking! Love the pictures!

I feel the same way about pomegranates, which I think a lot of people don't even eat!! I'm loving all your adorable apple pictures, btw!

I'm an asparagus girl. Asparagus season is the best!

I adore apples year round but would have to agree that they become especially tasty in the fall! I also LOVE to make and eat squash in the fall :-)

I'm obsessed with McIntosh and I eat them constantly when they're in season. We can only buy them in the fall in NOLA and it kind of breaks my heart!

I do love apples. But my favorite for this season is pumpkin. I love going to Dunkin Donuts and getting a pumpkin latte with pumpkin donuts. Yum!

Considering that Washington state produces more apples than any other state in the nation, I think it's safe to say that I love me some apple ANYTHING! Although, honestly, I don't like pie that much. I'm a cobbler or crisp kind of girl. ;-)

When I was growing up there was always a huge pot of hot cider simmering on the stove. My mom would pretty much put the pot there in October and it would stay through February. We had a huge container of mulling spices and would add them to the pot along with apple juice when it got low. It tasted so good and our house always smelled of apple cider!

Ha! Love your apple intervention. :) I need a pumpkin intervention. And, when are you going to post photos of your new haircut (or have I missed them?)? I've decided to grow mine out after having a bob for ages. I want long, blond Jess Simpson hair. But, do I have the patience for it? We shall see. xo
