Saturday I celebrated one more year of being on this earth by learning the difference between Double Red Delicious, Standard Red Delicious, and Starkey Delicious.
And all I can remember is that they’re all delicious. Like really delicious.
I also learned that bees LOVE apples. Who knew!
It all started when I woke up bright and early and went to Los Rios Ranchos with a group of friends to get my apple pickin’ on. We picked apples, ate apples, contemplated paying a dollar to go through a corn maze, decided not too, then drank lots of beer and had a long lunch.
It convinced me that parts of being a grown-up are pretty dang fun.
And then when I got home with too many apples to stuff in my face, I realized I needed to put ’em to good use.
I decided that putting them in muffins, along with some apple cider, would be a pretty good idea.
And then I found out that I was right.
