Do Something Yummy With All Those Apples You’re Picking

It's that time of year, yet again. We're piling into cars with friends, kids, dogs, you name it, and we're all heading out in search of one Midwestern treasure: the apple farm. Is there anything in this world as charming as apple picking? Maybe, like, Ryan Gosling, but that's it. These cozy little day trips are the perfect fall activity, but once all the warm fuzziness is over, you're left with a sh*tload of apples. One local blog, A Lovely Escape, took a chance on turning that bag of booty into a delicious soup and achieved something devine. Take her advice (ahem, add bacon), and use up those perfectly picked pecks. Happy fall. (A Lovely Escape)
