I spend WAY too much time trying to find a good image to go with my Thursday I Like posts. Today was particularly frustrating and I have given up looking for the lovely apple I painted years ago. It just isn't worth it. And now blogger or my computer is not working correctly and I can't add a photo at all. I just give up. I really hate not having a picture but I have already wasted half an hour trying to get one.
Our prompt this week from LeeAnna is apples. What kind of apples do you like? I love Cortland apples fresh picked in the fall. They are crunchy, juicy and tart. Yum. I would live off of them if I could. I learned of a new variety this year, called Red Cort. Just as yummy.
Do you have stories of picking them, or making special recipes with someone? It was a fall tradition for us to go apple picking when my boys were younger. It was always a pleasant afternoon except for the time my middle son got stung by a wasp. Well, there was a lovely woman at the orchard who had a first aid kit and helped. A bandage always makes an ouchy feel better when you are little. I am grateful for the kindness of strangers.
Have you done apple artwork? Yes, and I really like the way the painting turned out. it would have been perfect for this post. I am still miffed that I can't make it happen.
What are your go-to recipes with apples? No recipes. Apples in the fall are absolutely perfect. In my opinion, adding anything to them just ruins them.
