I love fall. It’s by far my favorite season…and it’s why we choose to get married in October next year :). The changing of the leaves and the colors are a perfect setting for a wedding in my opinion. The weather is not to cold and the humidity is finally gone. I love scarfs, boots and cardigans. Mine and Alex’s birthday’s are in October. All desserts are spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin. Fall and I just get along splendidly, and there is so much to look forward to!
Apples are great this season as well. I used to go apple picking every year with my family. Everyone got loaded up on a tractor trailer and we got pulled all over the orchard to pick what apples we wanted. Many apples were taken and loaded up and once you were done picking and returned to pay for the apples, there was an enormous vat of apple cider to drink as much apple cider as you wanted. When it comes to any type of picking you usually have an over abundance of the product. The amount of delicious simple recipes to make with apples are endless. Here an apple is mixed with cinnamon and vanilla poured over greek yogurt and walnuts. I had this for breakfast but this can be a simple healthy dessert to have after dinner as well!
