Rites of Fall



Popcorn, September, 2010, originally uploaded by Maggie Osterberg.

It’s Autumn, my favorite of all seasons! I love the cooler days and nights and what foodie doesn’t love the harvest? Here in Southeastern Nebraska, we’re lucky to have apple orchards nearby and going to Union Orchard, on US 75, between Union, NE and Nebraska City, NE, has turned into a Fall tradition for our family.

When I was a kid, we used to do the whole pick-your-own thing, but nowadays, we just go straight to pies, turnovers and apple spice donuts. We don’t mess around. Oh, and a stop by the snack bar for a cup of cider and maybe a funnel cake. (mind the flies..)

Life is good.
