What I did this weekend

Pumpkins and apples and cider, Oh my! 

Pumpkin Patch
So many pretty pumpkins! A difficult choice ahead of us...

Beautiful Jonathan apples just begging to be picked and made into pies or applesauce!

The hubs. Loving the fake smile...


Our bulging half-bushel of apples.

If you can find a place to pick your own apples this month, do it! You won't regret it. (Don't forget to sample the fruit warm from the sunshine of the branches. Oh! And pick up some freshly pressed cider!) Or at least find a nearby pumpkin patch and snip your own pumpkin off the vine instead of settling for what you can find at the store.

Want to go where we went? Visit Paradise Valley Orchard in Cache Valley, Utah.

PS: Recipe coming sometime next week. This week: Midterms. [sigh]


  1. Exactly what we are doing this weekend and can't wait to make some fresh apple pies. Going to pick up our pumpkins too but not going to carve yet, still too early I think.
    Love the pictures, cute fake smile.

  2. We won't be carving our pumpkins for at least a couple more weeks, but we are so excited to carve this year!
