Apples and a Giveaway Winner!

First things first, thanks to everyone who entered a comment in my Halloween Giveaway contest! The winner, chosen by the random number generator, is.......Ashley! I'll be sending you an e-mail to get your mailing address.

Here are some pics from our recent apple-picking outing at Fireside Orchard (in my family, we call it Apples Cider Cheese Fudge - for obvious reasons) I've never picked apples before and was surprised at how easy it is. I mean, if you are picking bushels of apples I'm sure you would work up a sweat but we only picked a peck and it was a cakewalk. These are Haralson apples which are ripe when fully red. They look fake, don't they?

At the bottom is a picture of the baked apple I made for dessert that night. Low carb means no apple pie, alas, but I did cheat by toasting the marshmallow on top. Delicious!

Yay! Cherish, it is pathetic that all of my communication with you lately has been via your blog. Are you around this weekend?

I'll be around all weekend (pathetic, that's me) so give me a ring if you get a chance!
