This weeks photography challenge is all about capturing brown and or food. In my case this is also the finale. What a fun challenge this has been, even though I did struggle to find time to capture and share each theme.

The leaves on the trees have all fallen and things are looking pretty brown around here. To be honest it can be kinda depressing especially if the sun isn't shining because then it's brown and grey. There is HOPE for the future though. I'm so thankful to live in an area where we get to experience 4 distinct seasons. The pictures I'm going to share remind me of that HOPE. They were taken toward the beginning of Fall when the leaves were just starting to change.

Do you know what this is?
This is something that was left behind by the previous homeowners. Thankfully they told us what it was because we had all kinds of other interesting ideas.

If you guessed an apple picker than you were right! I still can't believe we have our very own apple trees. We have 4 total. I don't really know much about apple trees so I'm learning as I go. Apparently we have 2 trees with apples for cooking and 2 for eating. One tree didn't produce any apples at all this year.

When I get discouraged over the barren lifeless land that this time of year brings I think back to the time when we picked apples from our trees.

Blanca enjoyed the apples too!

Of course I had to make a special treat with all those apples.

Pie meets cake and had a party in a skillet.

Are you drooling yet? I bet you want the recipe. Well lucky for you I'm sharing.

It's pretty simple really. First you need a cast iron skillet. If you don't have one, you need one, go get one immediately. Basically you make up an mixture for the apples to soak in. Then you mix up a batter. You butter up the skillet, pour the batter in and then spoon the apples over top. Then you bake it until deliciously golden on top. Still need more details? The full recipe is below. Enjoy!
