A Weekend of Too Many Calories Part 1

I got up nice and early this morning, as if I were going to the gym. I knew I wasn't, but I wanted some time to relax before heading out for most of the day. I was able to relax and enjoy my breakfast and coffee while I watched a show. About 10am, we headed out to go to Apple Hill. I love going here, we always have so much fun! It took about 1 hour to get there, but we made it without traffic!

By the time we got there, we were starving (since we ate at 7am). We knew where we wanted to eat, and grabbed some yummy food. This was hubby's meal (we shared a soda and the fries). He ordered the chili cheese burger.

This is how he felt after eating it.

My lunch was a hot dog. I'm pretty simple most of the time.

There are wineries all over the place up there. We walked to the closest one for some wine tasting. This was our view on our walk.

It was so beautiful out! Prefect day for an Apple Hill outing.

We hit up Madrona. We knew that we already liked their wines, but wanted to go to the closest winery, so we could walk the off wine going back.

The Zin was the best!

This is one of the most popular places to stop at Apple Hill (it's called High Hill). They have a lunch area (were we ate), arts and crafts to buy, fishing, a fudge factory (which I totally hit up), and so much more. I love being in the woods. Since I live in the burbs, I don't get up here very often. I love it!

We made a few more stops on our way out. We actually ended up spending all day there (which we weren't expecting). Oh well, we had fun! I also bought some apple cider, an apple pie (the best pie I've ever tasted, and I even loved the crust), fudge and a ton of apples. I have a plan to make some apple sauce and apple butter tomorrow.

When we got home, we immediately opened the apple pie and had dessert before dinner. That's one good thing about being an adult...dessert before dinner. I forgot to take a picture, but I'll take one tomorrow. I only made 1/2 the dough and a weird shaped pizza for dinner. It was so good. It really hit the spot.

After dinner, I had one more dessert, some fudge from the fudge factory. YUM!!

If you like fudge, do you prefer to buy it, or make it yourself?
