Foto Vrijdag 2.43 Apples and Pears

I’ve had fruit on the brain recently. More in a baked form than fresh, though. The autumn weather — and my increased consumption of coffee — makes me start craving baked good. Rather than going full-out chocolate gorging, I’ve decided to at least try to add some fruit into my baked goods. These two apples — two of only three that appeared on our apple tree this year — were turned into apple crumbles this week. Today, I plan on buying more apples from Albert Heijn (it’s their food magazine sitting beneath the apples), so I can make some apple muffins for my morning breakfast.

As for the photo, I used the Instagram app to take this photo. I still haven’t replaced my camera batteries that died on Sunday. I like the mix of real and fake in the photo itself, and the soft, muted tones supplied by the app give it a bit of a Victorian, antique feel. Cozy. Gezellig even!

  1. I do agree! I’m starting to drink more coffee than before but maybe it’s the weather making coffee more lovable? And getting the habits of HT hubbie of eating something sweet with coffee. And Kay’s recipe are addictive. Good luck with your apple muffin. πŸ™‚

  2. Darn! How come the tree is providing you with apples each year when it hardly ever did for me? What are you doing to it that I neglected to do? πŸ˜‰

    • Well, we got considerably fewer apples this year. Only the three, whereas last year we got six or eight, at least. I think our secret was to forget about the tree. πŸ˜‰ We paid a bit more attention to it this year and got less. We’ll probably prune some of the branches this year, which probably means we’ll get nothing next year!
