I'm on a major autumn kick over here guys. They say if you can't beat 'em join 'em. The chilly temps are here, drizzly days, crunchy leaves, that elusive fall smell is in the air. I pulled out my sweaters and leggings, have been pinning boots and hot drinks. Craving mashed potatoes and gravy. I even turned on my heater this week. So on-trend with my fall kick, I thought I'd share a few photos from a trip to Greenbluff from our last visit to Spokane.
When I was in Spokane a week and a half ago, I roped my cousin and friend into going out for a visit on Saturday morning. My favorite spot is Hanson's - if you can get your hands on it they have amazing cherry cider, but you almost have to go on a weekday to get it anymore. (Real cherry cider is my hands-down favorite!) We wandered around, walked through the orchard and enjoyed the sunshine.
Next we stopped at The Cherry Shack and grabbed several gallons of cider, they usually have the best price. It's a cute little roadside stand. They sell a few different preserves and honey, but mostly just gallons and gallons of cider!
Then we decided to brave the crowds and stop at the Harvest House - it's one of the bigger places (ie more crowded), but they have the aforementioned dynamite pumpkin donuts. So, so good! We got a baker's dozen, enough to have a couple fresh and some to save for the next morning. (Insider tip: Nuke them for precisely 8 seconds in the microwave and they taste almost fresh.)
As our last stop, we hit up Cole's on the way home. They are the only certified organic growers on the bluff. They were sampling different kinds of apples and I'm kicking myself for not getting a box to take home. Honeycrisps for $1.30 a pound... well that's just unheard of around Seattle.
