VeganMoFo is here!


Today is October 1st, which means it's the first day of VeganMoFo! This is the third year of the mofo.

I've been crazy busy these past few weeks because I've been working my regular job, started school and started an additional job. I LOVE my second job. I work at a family farm that has raspberries, blueberries, peaches, pumpkins and APPLES! I have access to free, freshly picked apples four days a week, and it is the best thing ever. Even if I had to pay for them, all apples, no matter what variety, are only $1.29 per pound. A lot of people complain about it (people complain about everything!), but I was at the grocery store and Honeycrisp apples are over $3.00 per pound. And the ones in the grocery store are shipped from who knows where.

Expect to see many apple posts this month. I have so many apples that I don't have room for them.

What a GREAT job. Naughty me didn't get any Apples this week and that picture has made my mouth water. Apple juice it will have to instead (not quite the same eh!).
Happy Mofo'ing.

That sounds like such a fun job! And I think that's a really good price for apples. A lot of our farmers market fruit starts at $2.50 a pound. I can't wait for some apple recipes!

Yay for apples, I'm still exploring new types. Here in the UK we have so many varieties I've never tried before and this year I am trying as many as I can. :)

Woah. Those apples look ginormous! All this apple talk makes me want some apple pie.
