This past weekend marked the first official day of fall! I can feel the weather changing – that crisp feeling in the air in the mornings and the lack of humidity all signal that a new season is here.
I am not a fan of the cold weather, but there’s something great about the fall season. There’s the reappearance of boots and light sweaters, yet still warm enough to wear jeans and a t-shirt. There’s all the apples and spices in the air. There’s the feeling of starting something new that the student in me can’t quite shake. There’s the beautiful leaves changing around us. It’s a pretty wonderful season.
So instead of a long post today about the politics of fall (or elections!), I’m sharing my favorite fall snack – apple slices!
I know, I know. Nothing fancy there. But I like my apple slices in a really specific way. And it’s amazing. What’s your favorite fall recipe? Share in the comments, and I’ll try them and feature them in a follow up post! (And give you a great shout out on facebook and twitter! So follow us!)
1 Macintosh Apple, sliced and peeled
Basically, slice the apple (Macintoshes are my favorite, but any will work) and peel it. Then pour some lemon juice on the slices and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Then add just a bit of nutmeg on top, and you’ve got a yummy snack that tastes like apple pie!
