This is a truly special time of year in California, reflected in the fact that both apples AND stone fruit are in season! It has made for a week of delicious breakfasts for me. I've eaten a bowl of sliced peach, greek yogurt, flax seed meal, and pecans every morning!
Yesterday my drawing teacher brought us apples from her tree, to use for subjects or for eating. I ate mine immediately :) I still can't believe how much better apples, and all fruit, is when it's eaten ripe right off the tree. It's literally a whole new world of fruit compared to what I grew up with. It turns out red delicious apples--all bitter peel and mealy flesh when they come from the supermarket--actually taste like their name implies.
