  1. I’ve never been apple picking! I don’t think it’s something we do round here πŸ™
    How’s little Skye doing?

    I hope you get to go apple picking soon. The weather has been dreary here too unfortunately. The features this week are amazing! Happy Fiesta Friday πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      I don’t mind the cold, I just can’t take not having sunshine β˜€οΈ Unfortunately this weekend is going to be more of the same. Oh well, can’t fight Mother Nature ? Thanks for cohosting, Antonia! I hope you’ll have fun! ?

    Does picking them off your tree in the garden count?

    • Angie says:

      Of course! I actually have 2 apple trees, one of them the colonnade type which gave me fruits only one time. The other one is diseased and gives diseased fruits! Bummer!

  4. If picking them out of a big apple crate counts, then yes I have…lol! Funny you mentioned that. I posted earlier about the orchard and today about the pie I made with the apples. Have you been spying, Angie??? lol! Rainy week here, but we needed it!

    I haven’t been apple picking either!! It almost feels like apple picking came too early this year! Hopefully we will do it before it gets too cold! May be this weekend, if the sun peeks out! Happy Fiesta Friday Angie!!

    • Angie says:

      Luckily, Su, my favorite apple is Fuji and it’s a late season variety so we should be ok until end of October. Unless of course that’s not your favorite ? Some varieties I think will be done by Oct. Let’s pray for some sun! Have a wonderful weekend! ?

  6. Hi Angie, I’m just drooling at your picks for this week! Hope you get to go apple picking soon, I’m hoping to pick ours this week. x

  7. I haven’t been apple picking yet either. So much seasonal pressure!! :/ Pumpkins too… Then all of the baking and carving!

  8. I finally went and apple pies are baking away πŸ™‚ Love this time of year <3 Have a great weekend and happy FF!

  9. It was so much fun hosting last week with you guys! I brought my apple/peeler/corer thingy back to South Dakota when I came – I’m psyched to make apple recipes but it is still so hot here! We’ll have to see what the farmer’s market has tomorrow (my fave way to pick apples!)

    Btw, I used the Tangzhong method on my Kindred Milk Bread that got picked awhile back and I have my eyes on these chocolate swirl buns. Once you make this bread it’s enough to just erase any thoughts of any other bread.

    • Angie says:

      Well now that you mentioned it, I definitely need to try this Tangzhong method and make both your Kindred Bread and Hannah’s buns. I hope it’s not too difficult! Luckily I have a kitchenaid, that should help, right? Hannah did mention half hour kneading if by hand, no way!!

      • Naww, it’s easy. By hand is ALWAYS a lot longer. I just checked my recipe. Start to finish in under two hours. Five minutes kneading in the kitchenaide, then work the butter in, which takes about four more minutes. Easy peasy!

        Now those rolls are a little more complicated! But they soooo look like they’re worth it.

    Hey Angie! Well, I think apple season will last for a few more weeks at least! Don’t give up hope yet! Then we can anticipate some lovely apple recipes from your kitchen! πŸ˜€
    Thanks so much for the feature! I always appreciate it! This ice-cream would be amazing with the apple pies you are going to make after you go apple picking πŸ˜‰
    Happy Fiesta Friday to you! πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      Ooh…now you’re talking…apple pie and ras el hanout ice cream! I still can’t believe you did that to an ice cream!! What’s next? Garam Masala ice cream? ?Seriously, I need to keep up with you! I feel so dull lately ?

  11. It’s still early Angie – I like to go when the there is more color in the leaves and make a day trip driving through the countryside… πŸ™‚

  12. I’ve never done apple-picking before! Not in my life ever! :p But I found out that there’s an apple/orange farm a drive away and I think it would be fun for the kids to go to. Happy Friday, Angie!

  13. Hi Angie, happy Fiesta Friday. And I can’t believe reading this that I’ve never been apple picking, nor strawberry picking, nor any kind of fruit picking – something I must add to my foodie experience to-do list!

  14. Thanks so much for the feature – and in such great company as well (how did I miss some of them??!). We went apple picking the other week and both of the boys loved it – it’s become a tradition. Not something we ever did in the UK – both as Elaine says not sure how possible it even is plus the kids thing kind of drives it too πŸ™‚

    • Angie says:

      I’m surprised apple picking is not popular in the UK. Maybe you and Elaine can start a trend ? Everybody loves your Margarita! I actually made something similar a while ago with Thai Basil. It was so refreshing!

  15. Michelle says:

    Always a blast at Fiesta Friday!
    Thanks for another fun week!

    • Angie says:

      Great to hear, Michelle! Have you thought about cohosting? Let me know!

      • Michelle says:

        Thanks for thinking of me?
        I would be interested in co-hosting but
        I honestly don’t know what a co-host is responsible for!

        • Angie says:

          In a nutshell, you visit the links, commenting on them, and at the end of the fiesta choose features. It’s easy to do, but does require time. I do have cohosting guidelines to send to you if you’re interested.

    I have not been apple picking yet either. It has been raining here a lot so have had to do with the bags of freshly picked apples at the store πŸ™ I like visiting orchards with a variety of apples, so I get to pick (and taste ) them all:)

    • Angie says:

      Sounds like it’s the same story everywhere, Sandhya. It’s been wet in most places. At least we’re all in the same boat ? Maybe next weekend the weather will improve. Hopefully! I prefer picking my apples, too. I like to get different kinds and sizes! ? Thanks for cohosting!! ?

  17. Its been dreary and wet for a week now here in Virginia too Angie. While there was no orchard visiting…the farmers market was packed with awesome apples!

  18. Jhuls says:

    I haven’t tried apple picking. That’s a lovely experience, I can tell.
    Sorry for being so late, Angie. I hope the crazy weeks would take a break, too. πŸ˜€

    • Angie says:

      Maybe mango picking in the Philippines? Wouldn’t that be wonderful! No worries about being late. You know the saying, better late than never ??

Talk to me, people!
