Red





Apple Toffee Dip
1 8oz block of cream cheese
1 heaping teaspoon of sour cream
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of crushed toffee bits.
Combine the first three in a bowl and then add toffee bits.
Serve with sliced apples.

Last weekend after we finished picking out our pumpkins, and were in that general direction we stopped at BJ Reece Apple House to pick our own apples. The farm does not have all the glam of some of the other farms in the area, but offers cheaper prices for admission. Really you can buy apples cheaper in the store, but it is the experience that you are going for when you pick your own apples. The other thing that you will get is apples that have not sat in a warehouse for who knows how long. We have all ready made some apple sauce and this weekend when our friends come to dinner we are going to make an apple crumble. Yummy! It is kind of late in the season, so if you want to pick a certain variety check out their website to check for dates. Next year we will do it earlier in the season.

My favorite apples are "renette" from northern italy, slightly sour and greenish-yellow.

We're going apple picking tomorrow! That dip looks too dangerous for me. I love toffee. I think if I made it I'd end up forgoing the apples and just eating the dip.
