Time to pick Apples!

Each year about this time we try to make a trip to Tree-Mendus Fruit Orchards in Southwest Michigan to pick fresh Apples.  We ride the hay wagon out to the orchard, fill the buckets with Golden Delicious, Gala and Red Delicious apples and eat a few right off the tree.  We have to buy the Honey Crisp apples in the farmstand.  They aren't available as a "U Pick" variety.  A stop or two along the way and lunch at Redemak's in New Buffalo make a perfect day for us.

I've been wanting to make Pie Pops since seeing them for the first time at http://luxirare.com. There are great tips and recipes on the Pillsbury and Bakerella web sites if you want bake them too.  I don't know if I'll go as far as making my own Apple Pie filling like Cindy at Skip to My Lou but it does look delicious! 

Now if the weather would just cooperate we could actually plan the trip.  Wish me luck!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking 
if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
