You really can’t go wrong with food this season! Take a look at our recent blog where we talk about this very important topic more in detail.
Fall is prime apple season which makes it the perfect time to grab a friend and go apple picking for your favorite variety. You don’t have to be a huge health nut to enjoy this activity. There are tons of amazingly delicious treats to be made with apples: apple pie, apple crumble, apple sauce, apple muffins. Plus, a morning or afternoon spent at the orchard usually has more fun activities to fill your day.
Fall wouldn’t be complete without a real pumpkin! And to make the experience even more genuine, why not go find it yourself? Pumpkin patches are full of fun for anyone you bring with you. Plus, you can assure you find you perfect pumpkin by picking it out yourself!
Once you’ve picked out your perfect pumpkin, the next step is to carve it. Pick out your perfect scary face, or challenge yourself to a more intricate carving. Either way, you’ll have a fun display for the season. Make sure to save those pumpkin seeds for roasting! All they need is a little seasoning and a quick roast, and they’ll be a delicious snack to get you through all of Fall!
