So Why Are All the Apples Gone??


Well Mr. Jack Sparrow might have had a problem with all the rum being gone but the town of Piermont, NY has a bigger problem. CJ & I after a great weekend of relaxing & TLC decided to go to a local apple festival to ring in the new season. I’ve been seeing signs for weeks for this Apple Festival everywhere. It was taunting me to go! So we went………….NOT ONE APPLE IN SIGHT!!!! What the hell? Who does that? It was basically a flea market with the usual hot dog & ice cream & the pickle man, but low & behold not one single apple. What a bust!! But I think it’s funny as hell. 

I was expecting you know some apple cider, maybe an apple press so you could see them make apple cider, maybe a pie eating contest or an apple pie, maybe an apple turnover or I don’t know a man dressed up as Johnny AppleSeed! Something to do with Fall or Apples. Nadda. Just jewelry & a few odds & ends. I even ran into a friend of mine who showed up & was like, “So where are all the apples?” Oh well, maybe I’ll write a letter.

What’s your favorite thing to do with Apples this Fall? =)

This week tho I’m definitely making an apple pie. I can’t wait to chop up some apples, add the brown sugar, roll out the pie crust, & enjoy some yummy goodness with a dollop of ice cream. Also I bought some apple cider. I love apple cider. I guess you can tell I’m happy it’s Fall? The last few lingering warm days has been such a treat, but it was so nice to just curl up in CJ’s arms & chill out. =)

While the apple festival sucked we did go walk around the town pier. There is so much to New York State that has nothing to do with Manhattan & sometimes the beauty of it all gets overlooked. I live near Suffern, NY the classic farm town from Sex & the City but there is NO FARMS IN THE TOWN! No sexy man on a tractor, no cabin in the woods, nothing like that at all. Just shopping centers & if you blink you’re out of the town. Hehe. No apple farms either. Anywho I'll do a post about that another day. Here are some shots I did take at the pier.


The Hudson River!
The lil shore line...

I just thought this tree was beautiful!
Back to work I go tomorrow. This week is Pay Day so I’m glad for that. I’ll be dreaming of warm apple pie tonight! Good luck everyone for this week! =)

Huh? No apples? I can't wait to go to Apple Hill here. If they have no apples I will be writing a very stern letter to my Senator, that's for sure. Ummm... Apple fritters sounds really good right now!

tess said...

yea most festivals are just an excuse to eat fried things and drink and have little or nothing to do with the purposed title of the festival. Still glad you enjoyed yourself!

Who has an Apple Festival without apples? We have plenty of apples in Michigan! We could have an Apple Fest if we didn't already have a peach fest and a cherry fest.

Seriously?!? NO APPLES? That's like no Santa on Christmas! :(

As soon as fall starts, I start craving apples. I have been wanting to make an apple pie too! Just haven't had time.

Dionne said...

What? No apples? Lol, that is odd. But it sounds like fun, but how weird that it's namesake was a no-show.

what a tease! no apples at an apple festival. WTH?! but it is pretty funny.

as for how i like my apples (haha i just thought of good will hunting just now)...ummm i like mine with peanut butter. and that's it. heated apples, like in pies, don't do it for me. makes me gag actually. i don't know why.

I LOVE apple pies. That's one of my favorite things to eat during the fall.

I can't believe they thought they could get away with calling a flea market an apple festival...and not even have any apples! insane!

Beautiful pics! I love overcast weather!! There is a place outside of LA that is known for apple picking, going in a few weeks. Last year when we went there weren't any apples. I guess August is prime season (and we had a fire season that destroyed them, sadly).

I just go mainly to see the tress change color. It doesn't really happen anywhere else in LA since we don't have trees :(

Michele said...

Hi! Thank you for joining my giveaway! Best wishes to you!

I love apples and love apple pies! I wish I could bake! Sorry to hear that there were no apples where you were. I'm sure the apple pie you'll be cooking will meet some satisfaction though! :)

Daniela said...

yum. apple crisp with some vanilla icecream.....gotta find me a town fair, or something, quick. lol

So funny! I grew up in Suffern, there used to be Farms, but they are all gone now. The apple trees are still there, on the Mahwah NJ border, there might even still be one hold out small fruit farm on Airmont Rd. in NJ...anyway, crazy about the lack of apples...craving some home baked apple pie now!
