When I was a kid, I started anticipating Christmas as soon as December 1st hit the calendar. We weren't big into flashy gifts, but I still loved that time of year. Being the youngest of 7 kids, I was always pumped for my brothers and sisters to come home from college for a week to stay up late, play Scrabble, drink nog, make music, and sneak smokes after my parents went to bed.
I hype the annual "Welcome Back" celebration for the Honeycrisp Apple with almost as much pizazz. Ok, ok, my brothers and sisters are cooler than apples....HOWEVER, I scored some Zestar apples at Seward Co-op yesterday, which means Honeycrisps are getting ready to DOMINATE the scene.
I am so friggin pumped for Honeycrisp Apple season. It's just 'round the bend, and we gonna FEAST on Honeycrisps, yo.
I LOVE this season! It's akin to Seinfeld's episode about the Macinaw Peaches. The orchard near me said only "mid-September" when asked when picking starts. ARGH.
we are still here!! we're just treading water right now. trying to remember to breathe now and then.
miss you guys! still owe you a wedding card with a lawnmower inside. i swear it will get there!!!
those apples are the shit, btw.
Bob - I think I'm gonna try to pick my own this year! Just need to track down a good orchard.
Suzy - OMG. I can't even imagine how busy you are!! We love you, even though you stink at giving wedding gifts. ; )
We just got our first honeycrisp apples of the season today. They are soooooo friggin' good!! They have ruined me for every other kind of apple.
