Autumn just isn’t autumn without a trip to a local orchard. And it’s not a proper orchard visit without donuts and cider.
This year, we checked out the Ed Dunneback and Girls Farm just north of Grand Rapids. Aside from the fact that they were all out of ice cream for the caramel apple shakes, the experience did not disappoint. The pumpkin donuts even had a pumpkin spice frosting. Coupled with some cranberry walnut cookies and a cider slushie, they made an excellent feast for our sunny afternoon.
I rounded it off with a jar of pickled asparagus. Since the hubby is violently opposed to pickled veggies, this is an indulgence I get to hoard for myself.
One of these days, I’ll get around to a more thoughtful, healthful post. For now, I’m preparing for the cold by wallowing in a donut coma.
Have an indulgent Monday!
