Trip to Asheville: Day 3 October 31, 2009

Prepare yourself for withdrawal symptoms because this is my final post about Asheville. I will give you a moment to process that.

We had another lazy morning at the cabin before we had to check out. Jamie had a blast packing up the car for our departure. We stopped at the BEST bakery located near our cabin. If that place was in Wilmington I have a feeling we’d be there several times a week.

We drove about 40 minutes outside of Asheville to find a place to go apple picking, something I’ve always wanted to do. Elly seemed slightly more interested in eating cheerios than picking apples but she has been loving the homemade applesauce that resulted from this outing. Jamie and I have enjoyed apple pie a la mode the past few nights. We still have lots of apples left so feel free to leave me a recipe in the comments section.

We also stopped at a farm with more pumpkins and a huge corn field.

The drive home to Wilmington wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It took us six hours and that was with a long dinner stop at this cute little place we found with real southern down home cooking called Cracker Barrel and a couple other short stops in between. I am thankful that Jamie’s head didn’t explode due to my love of Oprah radio and Elly’s love of her Music Together cd ( she says “Ma!”, which translates to more,  after each upbeat song ends). We made it back safe and sound with the hope that we will be able to return to Asheville in the future!

    Grill the apples. Core them, slice them into disk shaped pieces, sprinkle them with ground cinnamon on both sides and grill them until soft. I use a grill pan on the stove (butter the pan or use cooking spray) but I’ll bet a bbq grill would work too if the slices are wide enough.

    Maybe we will join you next time you go to Ashville. Your trip sounds so fun & I’m glad you were finally able to go apple picking. I love those shots of Elly. You can do what we did, & just eat all the apples, as is, or try one of my favorites: apple crisp.
