Maybe it is because we are talking about apples this week in Preschool, or because we are going to an apple orchard for a field trip on Friday, but I'm just craving all things Apple. Apple crisp, apple pie (I make a mean apple pie using the pie crust recipe from The Little House Cookbook), applesauce (with chunks in it, of course. And a touch of cinnamon.), apple dumplings, apple cider, apple donuts (LOVE these!)
Or maybe it is the nursery rhyme we are studying in preschool - "An Apple A Day"
An apple a day keeps the doctor away,
Apple in the morning, doctor's warning.
Roast apple at night, starves the doctor outright.
Eat an apple going to bed, knocks the doctor on the head.
Three times a day, seven days a week - ruddy apple, ruddy cheek.
It wasn't until I started teaching preschool that I'd heard the rest of the rhyme beyond "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" part. I might have an apple two or three times a week, but not 21 times. I guess I need to work on that, at least through the rest of September! I want those ruddy cheeks!
