Apple Tasting

Saturday, October 11, 2008

So I went to an apple tasting today! It was pretty fun. I got to try a ton of different varities of apples. I found some ones that were amazingly yummy, and some that were just NOT my cup of tea.

Speaking of tea, I tried some green tea yesterday for the first time. It was lemongrass flavored and basically tasted like hot lemon water. I was extremely unimpressed. I also tried coffee again, which I know I don't like, but I really wanted to try some new things. So I got a skinny latte with sugar-free caramel in it. But all I could taste was the coffee. As usual, my coffee-loving friend could only taste the caramel. So I let her drink it! I kept trying it and hoping it would taste good. Not so much!

Anyway, the apple tasting is at the Portland Nursery for anyone who lives in town. It's today and tomorrow from 10-5 and it's also next weekend, same time. It's free to get in. They also have free popcorn, which didn't look appealing. But I did try some apple strudel. BEST APPLE STRUDEL EVER. Diet-friendly? Definitely not. But worth the taste!

I learned what my favorite kind of apple is (Ambrosia) and I learned that apparently it's popular! When we got to the barrels where you can buy the different varities, they were already out and we were there in the morning! They had some at the store later, but it was almost triple the price! They were good....but not that good!

Anyone else done anything fun lately?

    WOW--apple tasting--that sounds like fun!!!! I bought MI apples, where I live and they were only 50 cents a pounds. I love any kind of apple, but I especially love the tart ones!!

    Enjoy your day!

    I went to the mall last night and looked for a new Bathroom Scale since I have NOT gotten one this past year, but just weigh at the gym. SO, my sons said they will buy it for me for my birthday. It is a Homedic that has a digital display, but not all the other stuff. I don't need it to do everything including GROAN when I step on it!! emoticon

    Nothing fun so far for me, Amber. But i let Robert read your blog and we will head to the portland nursery maybe tomorrow. Sounds like fun.

    As for green tea, you might try the Celestial Seasonings Green tea. It is not the most pleasant tasting but it does help speed up the metabolism system for weight loss. It does for me, anyways.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your Aple tasting.
