how 'bout them apples?

Sorry about the seasonal confusion, but back to fall...the girls and I and some good friends went to an apple orchard, in celebration of the warm Indian Summer (86 degrees on the last day of September!). Here are some things we are dreaming of making with the apples we brought home:

Hubby's famous apple pie (disclaimer: not his own recipe)
Apple & Cheese pancakes
Apple & Crab Coleslaw
Apple Noodles
Apple Gumbo...(actually, these all just sounded really interesting. We'll probably really only make pie...I mean Mike will make pie).

UPDATE: For those that are interested, go to this website for a list of apple orchards in the area. There are a few in Emmett that look fun, but we ended up going to Williamson Orchards in Caldwell, just before you get to Marsing. I might try one of the Emmett ones in the future, because you can pick your own apples in the orchard. We wanted that whole experience. They wouldn't let us go into the orchard because of liability reasons at the one we went to...but still fun, nonetheless.

You'll have to let me know where you finally found an apple orchard.

Olivia looks unsure of what to do with her apple. That, or she's decided she would rather have hers in a pie. If Mike needs some taste testers, we would be more than happy to oblige.

Need some help with those apples? :) You'll have to let me know where you found the orchard. Peaches, pumpkin, apple pie....Sorry, bad habit of linking some words with songs.
