|The birthday girl really enjoyed our day out apple picking. She told me she wrote about it in class too.|
We came home with tons of apples, and have since made two kinds of apple pies, the traditional American apple pie with a criss cross crust top, and an apple crumble pie, which by the way, is the easiest to make and comes out good every time - you just cannot botch it. And is of course super yummy with some vanilla ice-cream. I love apples, and eat them on most days. An apple a day keeps the doctor away was really drilled in me since I was a kid growing up in Finland. (Omena päivässä pitää lääkärin loitolla). But I do have my own little quirk..I only eat apples that are peeled and sliced. I love eating apples with peanut butter, some cheese, yogurt, in a smoothie, oatmeal, etc. Sometimes for dessert I peel and slice an apple, arrange on a plate, sprinkle some cinnamon on top, and microwave for 2 minutes. The healthiest dessert ever!
