Crazy! I think that is the only word that can describe the weather this year. It’s August and it is already beginning to feel like fall – which is a good thing since apples are ready for picking. Eckert’s really is one of my kids favorite places to go – when asked what they want to do, Eckert’s always tops the charts. So of course, we have already been apple picking. We picked a bunch of honeycrisp apples (my all time favorite) – I just love them for fresh eating, but my kids insisted on making something with them. Most of my apple recipes felt too hearty for August – so we settled on trying an apple smoothie. Two thumbs up from both girls!
