My and my bf went on a trip Sunday on a mission for apples!! we did (not enough) research and picked Honeypot Orchards in Stow, MA...We decided to take the motorcycle because uhhh it was amazing weather, not a cloud in the sky and September happens to be one of the BEST riding months! Oh you just wait till I whip out my leather chaps and leather fringe jacket (ok that was a joke! but would be funny if i were to wear that!) an Ode to the BF...he has a 2009 Street Glide...it.is.awesome
needless to say we didn't do our research too well....we finally got there after getting lost for about 40 minutes and this place was PACKED with more kids than an elementary school! we both stood for a bit in shell shock at the amount of people. He said to me at one point "well we would fit in if we were older and had 7 kids :) haha there were hayrides, cider donut lines out the wazoo and a petting zoo, which we couldnt even approach because of the crowd!
Delish gala apple with a big bite from Yours truly
The BF enjoying his crisp gala
Some of the homemade Jam and honey in the Honeypot Store! I wanted to get some, but I didn't have enough cash on me and also we were limited to what we could bring b/c we were riding the motorcycle
Our tummies were also grumbling for lunch at this point so we made an executive decision to go into the farm store and buy a bag of fresh picked gala's...took the work out of the 'picking' and we will surely go again soon, just sure to do some research before
Our lunch at "Our place" Helens in Concord MA...This is one of our fav motorcycle riding restaurants. Its in Concord center which is a quaint little town.
I got a greek salad with a skewer of grilled chicken and but opted the feta for goat cheese and got balsamic dressing, not the greek. Ok I guess I made it a "Fit Foodie" special!
the BF's egg salad sandwich on fresh whole wheat with chippes and a pickle!
I will take this time to share a FIT FOODIE'S HEALTHY EGG SALAD recipe because I do love egg salad but it can be coated in mayo and yolk, you can barely even taste the egg!!
- 4 hardboiled eggs, 2 whole, 2 just the whites
- 1/2 c chopped celery
- handful of diced up no sugar added pickles (find them near the normal pickes)
- 1 heaping tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 heaping tbsp greek yogurt such as fage or chobani
- few shakes of salt and few cracks of fresh ground pepper
- in mixing bowl combine the mustard, yogurt, diced celery, diced pickles
- chop the eggs (make sure to throw away those 2 yolks!) into very small pieces
- throw them into the mustard, yogurt mixture
- combine well
- add salt and peppa'
- I like to eat it on a josephs lavash wrap or a piece of ezekiel bread toasted with romaine, sprouts and tomato!
Helens is known for they're berry tart yogurt, for all you yogurt-aholics (like ME!) this is similar to pinkberry...we got half tart, half cherry, the flava of the day!
Ok, Off to the gym for my personal training Sesh...catch ya later chickies!
