Farewell Summer. Hello Fall.
As sad as it is to say goodbye to my favorite season, I am excited to embrace fall! So many reasons to fall for fall! . Just to name a few… cozy sweaters, boots, crisp/fresh air (aka good hair weather), chili, soup, faux fur, coats, leather, vests, pumpkin everything, and apple everything!!
Now I don’t want to get ahead of myself… soooo let’s start with Apple Everything!! September is the perfect month to go apple picking with some of your favorite people. Spend the day picking at your favorite orchard, make some memories (taking lots of pictures of course), and enjoy an apple cider donut!
Now I know what happens next… you get home with what seems like a MILLION apples and wonder “what am I going to do with ALL of these!” Have no fear! Lots of easy, healthy, family friendly recipes to use them up. Here are 6 of my favorites – with the help of SkinnyTaste.com. (my go-to healthy meal recipe website)
