Apple Picking

Three friends and I made the drive to Kuipers Family Farm in the far western suburbs to pick apples. My main motivation for going was the donuts, and I wasn't disappointed there (in fact, I have subsisted entirely on donuts so far today). The whole experience was really fun -- the people that run the place are so nice and knowledgeable and all the different activities (pumpkin patch, hay rides, donut eating, cider drinking) are very fun and fall-ish. There were really only two varieties available for picking today, and I got 1.25 pecks of a combination of Empire and Golden Delicious. So now I just have to figure out what to make. I'm thinking an apple pie or crisp. But first, I have to take a nap! Getting up early on Saturdays is rough!
