Apple Festival
Saturday was a perfect day to hop in the car and drive to the Carter Orchard Apple Festival located atop the beautiful mountains in Charlottesville!! Beautiful blue skies and lovely scenery made for a "picture perfect" day. Mr. P and I enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the festival, and of course, we couldn't help but bring a little "apple goodness" home with us! I'd never tried an apple cider donut before and with just one bite I knew it wouldn't be my last! YUM YUM We also bought some apple caramel cookies but somehow the "cookie monster" in our house gobbled them up before I could get a pic! To round out the goodies we got apple butter, apple cider, and lots and lots and lots of apples! I see the makings of dumplings, applesauce, and pies in my near future:)

Mmmmm, apple cider donuts...haven't tried one yet but it sure does sound yummy! I've had a few caramel apples so far this season.

Glad you & Mr. P enjoyed your trip!

Apples are my favorite fruit. I have never had an apple cider donut. They sound delicious.

God bless.

I just came across your site for the first time. I love it! Such beautiful pictures at the top. I've been looking for fresh apple cider at the grocery store lately and they haven't had it. Your post makes me want to look even harder. I'll be back soon to read more.

Apple Festival Saturday sounds like fun. A Historical Society in our area had an Apple Butter Fest on Saturday. We are in central Pennsylvania and the leaves are turning to gorgeous colors. I never tasted apple caramel cookies but they sound good.

Oh Susan!! This sounds like SO much fun!! I surely wish we had apple orchards near us- I guess we are just too far south. :( Maybe one year we'll head up that way for some apple fun!!
