Apple Season

No, this one isn't the apple season photo :-) Just a view at my house.
 Just a quick post to say "hi" to all of you dear blogging friends. I know I haven't posted in over a week. Between homeschooling, getting ready for a yard sale, and going through fall decorations (which I'm just starting to get out)...we've been a little busy.
So sorry, I'm trying to get around and visit you all as time permits :-)
Our weather has finally turned cooler, and we're really enjoying it.
Here it is, apples galore! 
 It's apple season! I hope you're all enjoying your favorite autumn recipes. 
My daughter has already made her wonderful Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, and I'm ready for Apple Crisp.  
What's your favorite Fall food?

Kelli said...

If it calls for pumpkin, apples, cinnamon or nutmeg, I'm game! I love the warm, down-home nature of fall foods. Always soothing and comforting. :)

Gloria said...

We have been eating apples with a little bit of lime salt sprinkled on top of them. I know it sounds strange, but it is really good!
My favorite apple recipe is a Knobby Apple Cake with cream cheese frosting. I haven't made it in a long time though! I should, the grand kids would LOVE me for it...:)

I love your beautiful (apothecary (?) jar full of apples. So very Fall and so beautiful. Apple green is one of the prettiest greens there is!
My daughter brought us two precious little pumpkin tarts in tins yesterday. They were topped with a tiny pie crust apple in a bit dollop of whipped cream. But...I am afraid that Apple Crisp is my very favorite dessert!! :)

Hi Marcia,

I have always loved apples and just to eat one fresh and crisp is the best way to enjoy!

The apple container is fabulous.
I'm thinking as much as I love them all the time there is something about a nice gooey cinnamon roll in the fall. Yummy

Apple crisp is my specialty, but I make mine a little different than most...I have a summer fruit bearin apple tree, so all the pies and crisps and apples are in the freezer now...time to get up to Oak Glen!

Aubrey said...

What a beautiful vase filled with delicious apples. Just looking at that makes me want some apple crisp. With the baking of pies I am sure your home is filled with the aromas of fall.
I am glad you received your little treats and that you enjoyed them.


Drawn to The Sea said...

really big vase?
or really teeny apples?

I'll have the whoopie pie please, any flavor will do :-)

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Definately my favorite Fall food is homemade apple pie! I could eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner!!

freckled laundry said...

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies? Oh, yum. Was just thinking of you and wanted to stop by for a hello. I {LOVE} your photographs. You could make some serious pies with all of those apples.

My favorite fall foods are Apple Crisp Pie and Warm Cider Donuts. Mmmm.


Shirley said...

You have such a beautiful home! Have fun decorating for fall.

I love caramel apple pie, or any kind of pumpkin bread or muffins. Yum!

Karen said...

I love apple season! I like most anything that has to do with apples, especially apple butter!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Beautiful...and we made apple dumplings the other night...I think we are going to have fall, if the temp will go down past 90!
I hope your school year is going well!

Denise said...

thanks so much for stopping by my blog over the weekend. I always appreciate your sweet comments so much.

siren said...

Hi! So wonderful pictures, your blog are amazing! Have a nice day! :)

Paula said...

That is one huge vase, Marcia!! It looks so beautiful filled with those yummy apples....
I love anything with apples this time of year... my Mother-in-Law gave me a wonderful apple dumpling recipe several years ago and I always enjoy making it.
Our neighbors have pear trees and had a bumper crop this year so they have given us 4 bushels of pears so far- I may not even buy any apples this year because you can make a lot of the same things with pears as you can with apples. I've made 12 pints of pear butter so far and it turned out great! I will dry the rest of them... maybe make a cake with them for the holidays.

Tammy ~ Country Girl at Home ~ said...

Love that big vase with the apples! We went apple picking too and have lots. I've made a caramel apple pie, but I'm ready for apple crisp and more of the apple recipes that I've collected! I need to get busy!

Hope your homeschooling year is going well!

Blessings from our family to yours, Marcia!
