Shoes sopped with rain. It was worth it.
This past weekend was a little bit of a getaway for us. I say ‘little bit’ because we definitely still had homework to do. According to the map of all time and space, we were do for a long rainy weekend. But this didn’t spoil our plans to go apple picking. We wouldn’t let it, we’re too much of the romantic type and we find way too much earnest in the rain. Per usual I brought the wrong type of shoe to be out in the rain in the middle of an apple orchard. Wet grass, rain, mud. The most idealistic conditions for sporting a pair of ballet flats. You know what we say though, ’tis the season!
We ended up picking the Golden Delicious variety only because you know me, I was going to bake a pie with the apples. Have you ever stopped to think about the way the apples are named? Golden Delicious, Gala, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp. Names almost more endearing then the apples themselves.
My obsession with maple syrup is unrelenting so I made a Maple Apple Pie to satisfy just about everyone of my hopes and dreams this season. I made two batches (one for the bottom crust and one for the top crust) of my favorite pie crust recipe from Joy the Baker and then followed the Maple Apple Pie recipe from Kitchen Heals Soul.
What have you been up to this weekend? Happy fall!
