My Favorite Fall Activity

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Fall just rolled in yesterday and I am already excited about the season’s activities. I don’t know why I can’t wait for Halloween to come. I am not going to do anything but hand out candy. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving but that is going to be low-key this year. I adore Fall colors. My home, my front yard, my wardrobe and my make-up all mirror the Fall colors I love. This blog even consists of Fall colors. The theme just moves me and I feel good in it.

So my mom and I decided to go apple picking. Pick-your-own-apples is my favorite all-time Fall activity that my mom introduced to me when I was a teen. In New York we used to go every Fall at least twice in one season. As an adult I continued the family tradition and learned how to make all kinds of apple dishes.

To my surprise this season apples are in full bloom in New Mexico and we found an orchard 45 minutes away in Belen. The folks there are the sweetest and the orchard is full of tasty apples on dwarf trees which makes picking them very easy.

We picked Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Winesaps apples and I can’t wait to start baking pies, dumplings and tarts. My husband is not a big fan of raw apples but even he was impressed with the sweetness of Costanza apples.
