Good Sunday morning. It is with a delicious cup of coffee in hand that I write about the wonderful fall day yesterday. It started out as any Saturday, not being able to sleep in anymore. I guess you hit a certain age and you just don’t need as much sleep I suppose.
I woke up, made my coffee and wrote my blog post. To which I still need to post the those recipes. Then I made breakfast and got dressed to go out. Breakfast was easy. Jen: leftover Chinese food. Me: Egg and cheese on an English muffin.
Jen had decided on a fair she thought was happening in Sayville. As she got ready she texted our friend Allyssa to see if she would like to join us. We would all be ready in 20 minutes when Jennifer needed to get my mother in-laws mail mailed down to Florida. Oh yes, did I mention my mother in-law is now down in Florida at her own house?

We ate and the sandwiches were yummy. Now it was off to a “craft fair” close by. This was a much smaller version of the craft fair that happens behind the library in the same town every year. The original library fair was canceled and the church held this one, only there was no food. Boohoo. I love food from any fall fair.
That meant apple picking. We tried to find a place close by without having to get into the mess and traffic that is out east. (Shiver) We drove North and tried a few farms but alas non of them had apples, much less apple picking. All except one that had a small stand of apples for $1.99 a pound so we picked up some. Along the way we also got candy apples and cider doughnuts. Now with some snacks in the car it was time to head back home.
We lounged in the back yard under a big maple tree and enjoyed the breeze as we ate our apple cider doughnuts.
Later for dinner, I made Beef Short Ribs, Mashed Potatoes and
