While Liz is enjoying some time off, I'm back to deliver you THE LATEST!

As you can probably tell from Liz and Stephanie, the marketing team here at IMPACT are big fans of fall! 

I'm a tried and true New Englander and lover of all things autumnal. 🍁

This weekend, I, along with the rest of the state of Connecticut, did one of the most autumn filled activities there is. I went Apple Picking! ðŸŽ

I love my annual apple picking trip. What's better than hunting for the perfect tree and plucking those juicy apples? 

The only problem is, I never have a plan as to what to do with the 10 pounds of apples I now I have in my kitchen. I mean, they look great neatly arranged in a bowl on my counter, but can I really eat 10 pounds of apples?!

So, I'm putting it out there now, if you've got apple recipes send them my way! I've got plenty of raw material to work with.

Before I continue turning this into a Food Network newsletter, here's The Latest!
