With Labor Day around the corner and kids going back to school, supermarkets are busy shuffling out watermelon and substituting gourds and winter squash.
And autumn means APPLE 🍎 SEASON! Bring on the million varieties. 🍎🍏🍎🍏🍎
And for anyone in Hudson Valley, apples and apple picking means Salinger’s Orchard in Brewster where during peak apple picking season you might have to park a mile or more away, it gets that crowded. Some of us are there for the hot mini donuts!!! 😋
My neighbor sent this virtual card to me last week, one she keeps on her phone for when she’s shopping for apples.
I’m partial to Gala and Macoun for eating and since I’m a lousy baker, I defer to others to choose apples right for pie. But truth be told, of all the pies out there, apple is my LEAST favorite. In a buffet of pies, I’d walk right past the apple table to a pecan pie or a chocolate cream pie. Blueberry too if the baker can manage to keep the bottom crust from being soggy. Rarity.
Cablevision liaison still Out of Office and no determination from maintenance as to when my request for an appointment will be scheduled so I’m hopping in car for Bedford.
