Apples for breakfast on the first day of fall

2013-09-22 .
Adair County apples were on our breakfast table, in hot buttery cinnamon-y juice, in honor of the first day of fall 2013.Well, that's not all together true because we've been enjoying cooked apples for weeks ever since Jeff and Henrietta Scott's Sparksville orchards produced ripe fruit for the Farmer's Market. But the cooked apple dish did seem extra right this morning since today at 4:44 p.m. marks the Autumnal Equinox. The not too well done apples sprinkled with cinnamon are pictured beside a cup of hot coffee which brought out the apple taste even more. The reason the apples were not too well done is that I had too many electrical devices going at the same time, which I forgot to be careful of in my haste to celebrate the first day of fall, or breakfast, or whatever, and consequently blew the fuse. Everything stopped for a few minutes. Normally my Mom would have taken her sweet time preparing the apples to perfection without blowing any fuses, but then I'm only the weekend cook. The simmering apples were in grave danger for a few minutes but the electric appliances were revived just in time for breakfast. -- Linda Waggener
