As I’m typing this post, Hurricane Sandy is beginning to unleash her wrath of bitchiness. The family is all together watching NY1′s weather updates. I’m nervously looking out the window at our block’s wavering trees. Oreo is totally unfazed - he’s probably dreaming of chicken. SO I’m taking advantage of this time to blog. I’m actually excited because I never have time to post on here! Let’s just hope she dies down, everyone stays safe, and our only problem should be cabin fever. NYC subways and buses are shut down. It’s so weird thinking that the transit system is empty in the city that never sleeps!
What sucks is that in case of…uh oh…part of our tree just fell. Crap.
PRAYING the trees hold up for tonight! Well, before I make myself crazy I’ll share with y’all our new video recipe.
Can I just say how much I’ve MISSED filming Tasty Memories!? There’s a long list of reasons why we haven’t produced an episode in a while (update video coming soon). Also, I added a poll on our Facebook asking folks if they’d rather longer episodes than our recently shorter ones. Longer videos FTW!
We went apple picking at Wright’s Farm in Gardiner, NY two weekends ago, and had a great time. I’ve been begging Leo to make time to pick apples this fall – I haven’t been since I was a kid! The trip was even more special with my momma and Oreo to enjoy the day with us. I fell in LOVE with Wright’s Farm. Not only were we able to drive up onto the orchard to fill 4 pecks of golden delicious and romes, but we really enjoyed their store! We picked up apple and pear cider, candied apples, caramel apples, apple butter, jams, and apple cider donuts. OH, THE DONUTS! Initially I bought one pack. Then after taking a single bite in the car, we all agreed 4-6 packs needed to come back with us. THANK YOU, WRIGHT’s FARM!
