US 27 CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR DIET

I found myself turning onto the twisting, curvy, narrow country road that leads to Reed Valley Orchard. Nestled two miles off the main highway then down a lane of gravel and pot holes for another half mile or so you come upon this captivating oasis of pumpkins and apples.

I shouldn't be here, having  a peck of apples sitting at home already waiting to be turned into apple pies and caramel apples...........Wait!! What am I saying !!! I am on a diet! And while I tell you that, toss in that jar of pumpkin butter in the bag. Resist temptation? HA! Throw in another peck of those delicious apples I got the last time....What are they called? Oh who cares! They are delicious! What's this? Pepper jelly! On Cream Cheese with those special crackers. Yummy! Peach salsa? You better believe it! Apple cider...YES YES YES.

As I was leaving, she rushed out the door to make sure I took one of the radiant pumpkins with me.....Pumpkin Pie..mmmmmmmmmmm.

Lack of self control isn't too hot for your diet either, but great for your taste buds! It sounds great! xxoxo

Pumkin pie is my all time favorite pie. I'd rather have it than the turkey on Thanksgiving. Ah, everything that tastes so good is so fattening. Darnit!

I'm going off today in search of an apple orchard where I can get some nice fresh apples for my Thanksgiving menu.  I may end up halfway up the mountain (where it is snowing today...)  There is nothing like an apple orchard in the fall.  Lisa  :-]

Who cares about the diet?  Go for it!  You can restart that diet next Friday...or Sat., or Sun. or Monday...not too difficult to see why I have a weight problem...!  JAE

Every year from October to Christmas, I never manage to resist pumpkin anything. And I just reached for the Braeburn apple in my purse. - Karen
