Time once again for our annual outing to pick apples. This involves a wonderful pick your own orchard where the dwarf apple trees are trained on wires, so all the apples are within easy reach. Of course this means that it is very easy to pick apples - and even with the warning of "don't pick as many as last year" we came home with more than 40 pounds of apples.
After the orchard we head to a winery in the area for a little fun for Mom and Dad.
And then to Washington Crossing Park - a little nature, a little history, a little walk across the Delaware.
After that we stopped at our alma mater. And walked around campus. So many new buildings have gone up in the past 20 years that it's hard to recognize the place. But the dorm where we met is still standing (even though it's slated to be taken down - or so I understand)
This is one of the two bags of apples. Yum.
And this was the quick desert we devised with some of those apples after we got home. Sliced and dredged in flour mixed with sugar and cinnamon and then fried in butter and oil, with some honey drizzled on for good measure. Double yum.
