Them Apples

Awwww, the smell of fall in the air and a computer that is again connected to the internet. Really, could there be anything better? After 3 days of no internet, A_ & _ finally got us hooked up again. It seems they gave us equipment that already broke. Afterall, the house was finished in March. How long should phone equipment work? Saturday morning I could see the little computers in the corner of my screen blinking again and I breathed a sigh of relief.

The leaves are starting to change finally and I need to wear a jacket in the mornings and sometimes all day! You are probably thinking — well of course, it’s October. Well, here in my city it was 87 on Friday. So it was so nice to think fall thoughts. That of course made me think of apples. I gave my kids some sliced apples with caramel dip yesterday and felt like such a good fall mother–especially when I finished off the caramel they left on their plates. Nothing like a tray of caramel and candied apples. So beautiful but I think they are  difficult to eat. First of all, they always seem to use the biggest apples they can find. I mean has anyone ever finished a candied or caramel apple at a fair? After you eat all the outside part of the apple with the caramel, what’s left? Candied apples are my least favorite and I always feel like my teeth are going to be left in the apple with that first bite. I already have to slather lotion on my face every night to fight wrinkes. I don’t want to have to clean my teeth in a cup every night too.  

I also think they use the least tasty apples or at least the apples always taste bland after eating the sugary caramel. I doubt they pick the best apples. They just big ones since you won’t see the outside. This is my theory anyway, and I’ve been right before.

So yes, fall is here. Time for caramel apples, pumpkins, hay rides, soups, jackets, changing leaves, and little kids dressed like fairies and cowboys knocking at your door. Enjoy.

    apples and caramel…one of the best treats ever. But I so agree with you about the candied apples. Those are stupid. And they definitely go for size over taste…those big giant apples just taste like water.
