Over the weekend, we experienced some honest-to-goodness fall weather, complete with wool sweaters and cooler temps. These things don’t really happen often to an LA gal like me so I took full advantage of it with a day of apple picking. We drove out to Oak Glen and visited Riley’s Apple Farm and Snow-Line Orchard. Fresh mountain air! I’ll tell ya, there’s nothing better.
The apple trees were pretty bare at this time of year, but we still picked a few pounds of pippins, red delicious, rubies, and granny smiths, all of which ended up in a pie I made later that night – JUST CALL ME QUEEN DOMESTIC. We also loaded up on fresh apple cider and apple butter, neither of which were very cheap but yolo. Luckily they turned out super delicious and we’re basically living off of apple cider, apple butter, and apple pie for the rest of the week.
The apple cider donuts at Snow-Line were calling our names as well, but with a line of 50 people deep, we had to sadly pass them up. Just ask Kyle, I legitimately pouted and stomped my feet a little. The power of donuts, I swear. Anyway, a solid fall day on the books for 2014.
