apple crisp

tasty breakfast, made with the apples we picked yesterday in High Falls.

peak!

We took a drive up the Hudson River Valley yesterday with Alex and Tiffany. Foliage was in high peak, and the weather was gorgeous!

Here's what we managed to pack in our 8 hour round trip...

We took I-87 North towards New Paltz. Our first stop was the Walkway over the Hudson (connecting Highland to Poughkeepsie). It is the longest pedestrian bridge in North America, with spectacular views of the fall colors.

Then we headed over to New Paltz, a little college town that is home to some of the oldest surviving examples of stone houses in North America – dating back to 1689! The town was bustling during lunch hour, so we just grabbed a quick bite and took off to High Falls. Note: next time bring a picnic.

We scooted down to the Scenic Mohonk Rd to High Falls (locals call it the "The Center of the Universe"). Then, we stopped by Mr. Apple's Low spray orchard to pick some fresh apples. Unfortunately, the orchard was slim pickin but we managed to collect an ample supply. Finally, we wrapped up at the high falls, and old stone mill ruins

If we had time we would of hit up the The Mohonk House and Mohonk preserve, but will have til wait until next time...

the way the coffee curdles


this has not happened in ages!! Went out for coffee yesterday, and before I could give the barista a tutorial on how to pour soy milk into hot coffee, my cup had become a science experiment with a sugar packet on the side. cry me a river.

Tips to avoid a cup'o science experiment:
1. Shake your soy milk before pouring.
2. Warm up the soy milk to room temp.
3. Pour the soy milk into your cup first.
4. Then pour the coffee, slowly.
5. Bingo - no curdles.
