Sweet, Sweet Fall

So it might have been 80 degrees outside.

And tomorrow may be 78 degrees.

But I am assured fall is technically here.

Last Sunday we sent apple picking.



And this past weekend I spent two hours chopping up apple into little bits to make--


A measley three jars of applesauce and a delicious apple pie.

Oh that pie! Oh mama! It's a very interesting recipe. Miss T of Knitcircus fame passed it along to me. It's a "Swedish" apple pie. Not quite an American apple pie with a true dough-top crust, nor a Dutch/French crumb-top pie. Kind of a cross between both--and VERY delicious.

Finally, and I don't know where the hell I get the energy to do this stuff (I'm freaking exhausted right now)--it's time for Cookie of the Week.

Of course now that I go back to link to the recipe, I can see I did it wrong, maybe I was asleep. Ah well, the taste is still amazing!


These are Samoa Bark.

As you can see, I should have folded the coconut into the caramel. Ah well.


I made two batches--one for home and one for work, and they didn't last too long!

Looks tasty!

I don't know where you get all that energy either, being pregnant, with two younger kids, and working full time, too. Don't wear yourself out before that baby comes!

Oh man, I don't know where you get the energy either. When I was pregnant I just wanted to sleep. Take care of yourself and enjoy those beautiful apples - the pie looks amazing (the cookies look like hard work - but delish).

It's foggy this morning and going over the bridge into Phila was a bit eerie (thoughts of Steven Kings' The Mist keep rolling through my head) and it's warm. I'm looking forward to the end of the week when it should feel like fall.

The pie looks yummy. I was wondering why the apples were showing on the top. What's the top crust made of?

Pie & cookies look yummy. Apple picking is the best!

Be good to yourself & take it easy.

The leaves have been turning in my neighborhood, but I think you'll appreciate my true sign of fall. Our house backs up to a gully full of trees. In the winter, I can see details on the back of every house on Wainwright, the street on the other side of the gully. In the summer, I can't see a thing, since the leaves are full of trees.

Last night, I looked out the window on our new kitchen door, and I saw a light on Wainwright. Fall is coming quickly. And why do I think YOU will appreciate this story? Because I was on the can when I noticed the light. :-P

Also - when is your cookie of the month calendar coming out? I want to like my computer screen right now. =P

I bet you are one of those people who go, go, go all day long until you finally sit down - then you are done for the day, right? I am kind of that way.

I am making some Samoa Bark. It looks divine.

Yum, looks good! I'm hoping to go this Sunday. Did you got to Alstede? I think I'm going to try the one in East Brunswick b/c they have a corn maze which looks fun.
