I hope every one is having a fantastic weekend! I sure am. We arrived in the North Carolina mountains yesterday. It is amazingly beautiful and quite chilly! Today the high was in the 40’s and it even snowed a little bit this morning. So it’s perfect to stay in the cabin and hang out by the fire.
Not too mention enjoying champagne bubbles in the jacuzzi bubbles.
I have a lot of photos. So I think it is much more fun to let the photos do the talking. Our cozy “little” cabin in the mountains
This morning we ventured out into the cold to go to an Apple Orchard. It was my favorite part of our trip so far. We saw some amazing views along the way.
After about an hour drive, we finally made it to the apple orchard.
The orchard was over 100 years old and the store had so many varieties to choose from along with other goodies like apple butter, jam, pies and fudge.
But we were feeling adventurous and wanted to pick our own apples.
Apple picking was a lot of fun. It gives you much more appreciation when you bite into that delicious, juicy apple than if you would have picked them up at the super market.
But what about the rest of the food, you ask? Last night I made dinner for every one. Navajo Tacos was on the menu, it was a special request from Hans. He said that it is “cabin food.”
It is my mom’s recipe, she is the mexican food queen. It’s very simple to prepare for a crowd. There is a crust base at the bottom made from a regular bread dough and the filling is lean ground beef, onions, green peppers, black beans, tomato sauce and taco spice.
You can serve salsa and guacamole, on the side.
And of course, I couldn’t resist picking up some homemade chocolate peanut butter fudge at the apple orchard.
I have been breaking off tiny pieces of it all afternoon. It is some amazing fudge! Creamy but not overly sweet. Sometimes I can get a sugar high from fudge but this one was perfect.
We are definitely having a fantastic time in the mountains. It is so cozy and relaxing! I have been taking walks each day but not really any formal exercise but we have been pretty active during our trip so no big deal. I am just trying to enjoy life to the fullest without worrying about it so much. It seems to be working.
See you guys later! xoxo
