My sisters and I went on a little outing on Friday, a little orchard about 20mts. away. We usually come with the kids but this year it was SOOOO nice to just be us adults. Rode in my sister's SUV for the first time with the sunroof open, and just laughing and talking. We should do this more often. This is a cute little family run business and you can always count on the little grandchildren running around and granma and papa helping out when it's busy. We have never been there on a weekday, usually it's a Sat/Sun thing when kids are home so I was quite surprised at how busy they were. I had a hard time taking photos because I'm sure these strangers didn't want to be in them, lol. Just did the best I could and am happy to have them and remember this day with my sisters. There was only one dissappointment about our visit, I will share that part later on. The weather was perfect for us then rained the rest of the day and cleared up and got sunny in time for Friday night football, love that!
My sister is taking a picture in front of me, I love walking into this big building
usually someone is working here but not today
So HAPPY they have my favorite kind, so yummy when freshly picked
My sister Heather got a lemon/dill sauce that they say is great with fish
I love all the cabinets/hutches they have here and filled with goodies to try
this is why we really come, fresh baked cider donuts and other yummy food. They even have a new grape mini pie, Heather bought one for her girls and will let me know what they thought of it. I also tried a oatmeal, apple, carmel cookie that was SOOOO good. This is where the disappointment came.
Remember I've been talking about getting some cider well here it was made fresh and went so well with the donuts. This year they have a new HOT Carmel Cider with foam and cinnamon drink, WHAT NO REGULAR CIDER??? I wasn't too happy about this but got one to try and only sipped a little bit and burnt my tongue on it, threw it out and bought my own cider at the store today, haha. They also have Cider Slushies which are pretty good and the kids like them. Oh well, some things change I guess and I know my sisters didn't like theirs and I heard other's talking about just wanting plain cider also. See the little apple postcard in the photo, hoping that will fit into a PL pocket.
I love that you can sit here and just enjoy the yummy smells and feel the fall in the air. Thanks for a nice trip girls, will have to do this again and wait till the leaves have changed colors.
