The air is crisp, the leaves have turned and Thanksgiving falls one month early in Canada. It's my favorite time of year to travel back home to visit my family. And what better way to spend a warm, sunny fall day then to go apple picking? The orchards just outside Toronto are beautiful. Today we visited the Carl Laidlaw Orchard. It was perfection. A hayride, apples upon apples and a pit where you could roast your own hot dogs and corn. The kids had a ball. The apples were crisp and perfect for snacking on while we were out today. We also brought bags of them home to make pie, crisps and stuffing with. I have the fondest childhood memories of going apple picking and I hope to be creating the same precious memories for my kids. Talking about the colors of the leaves, recipes we can make together and fun we had with Aunt Mandy and my best friend and her kids...was a perfect way to spend a Sunday in Toronto. Check back with us tomorrow...we'll be giving you a glimpse into our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner with a sesame turkey and so much more.
