Up to My Eyeballs in Apples
Yesterday I was chatting with my friend on her front porch swing when her daughter ran up and asked if they could pick apples. Their neighbor has a beautiful apple tree and has invited her children to pick as many as they want. So each of my children and each of hers (seven in all) grabbed a bowl and set out to fill it. Their harvest was plentiful, let me tell ya! I've got apples galore.
I put some in this bowl this morning, but I have enough to fill 4-5 bowls, and I only took about 1/4 of what the kids picked yesterday! So now I've got to figure out what to do with this many apples. I don't like apple sauce, and neither do my children, so that isn't an option. I'm going to pull out my favorite cookbooks a little later and search for some new things to try. I think I've got enough apples for a pie, some muffins, and maybe a few more recipes too! Ideas, anyone?
