Apples Fresh From The Tree

Remember my post on Sunday that said Amanda and Melissa were out picking apples?!?  Well… Amanda brought me some of the fruits of her labor today!  Talk about psyched!  There is just nothing better than fresh fruits and vegetables.  And I do mean “fresh” – not the stuff that passes for fresh in the grocery store…  Picked way before its time in some faraway place.  Fresh.  As in you picked it yourself or know exactly when and where it was grown and harvested.  The difference in flavor is just unbelievable.

I had puff pastry and was toying with the idea of apple turnovers when Victor said “Can I make an Apple Pie?”  I immediately said YES!!!

So… as I write this, a fabulous-looking apple pie is in the oven.

I can’t wait.

Thanks, Amanda!  🙂
