alstede farms

usually weekends are reserved for sleeping in, drinking endless cups of coffee, relaxing.... this weekend I woke up to an alarm both mornings, got in a nice 3.5 mile walk before kickboxing, stayed out on the lower east side until the wee hours of the morning, and discovered new jersey's obsession with apple picking at alstede farms (it really IS a fun little outing!) 

pair it all with good friends and amazing weather and I couldn't have asked for a better weekend!  well, except for that hangover that lasted halfway through apple picking (damn those "all you can eat AND drink" sushi places)

now we've got 14 pounds of apples to eat before they go bad.  apple butter and apple pie are in our near future!!  does anyone have special tips or tricks for the BEST apple pie or butter??

how was your weekend?!
