Recreating the spirit of the season



“When bobbing for apples, an idealist endlessly reaches for the best apple, a pessimist settles for the first one within reach, while an optimist drains the barrel, fishes out all the apples and makes pie.” —   Vera Nazarian.


This is the time of the year when the weather gets cooler, the barbecue is taken inside and the longing for a slice of fresh apple pie begins to creep into place. As the leaves outside begin to change color and fall from the trees some super markets follow suite and plan promotions that will remind shoppers of the fresh aroma of apple pies and cinnamon wafting easily in many homes across the country. Thought of mom’s apple pie and home are resurrected. This store apple display got the color and the tome of the season correct. A tasty bit of nostalgia. — gc

  1. Great post Gerry! I think I’ll go and make an apple pie and maybe even an apple crisp today. Have a nice weekend my friend. 🙂


  2. I totally get this post. Autumn, Summer has come to an end, darker evenings, the warm glow of lamplight in the window, the smell of ‘mom’s apple pie’. Home… a loving welcome at the end of a busy or difficult day. Nostalgia for what we remember and often miss and for some a thankfulness for what we have received. 🙂


  3. I love the idea of apple pie more than the taste (which happens to be my favourite pie). There’s something about the tradition and nostalgia that comes with picking apples in the orchard, storing bushels in the cold cellar and making pie for thanksgiving (October here in Canada) I find so romantic.

  4. I remember visiting Vermont in autumn years ago and getting out of the car, immediately the smell of apples was in the air – wonderful!
