Kev, quick eat this apple!
It’s a jungle out there!

Thanks for the great time, Applecrest. What an awesome kickoff to the fall. Everyone, please go to your nearest farm or apple orchard. You will not be sorry.

In the meantime, I have some planning to do with my large bushel of apples. Keep your eyes peeled for some seasonal treats.

Australia Photo Diary – Sydney Foods

Mr. E’s work brought us to Sydney, Australia in late May for the Vivid Ideas. It was the first time I’d ever accompanied him on one of his trips, so why not join for the one as far as we could go! After 24 hours of traveling, we arrived in Sydney bright and early, ready to feed our weary bodies. I spent most of the trip quelling my jet lag symptoms with copious amounts of food. I’ll leave you to a glimpse of our eating adventures. Enjoy!

Just got here, but let’s go out there and eat!
