Funny, but before I had kids, I never went fruit picking. It never even occurred to me that this was something to do for a leisure activity (and before someone calls me a city kid, I did spend one summer in Maine commercially blueberry picking). But suddenly you have kids and you’re picking apples, peaches and raspberries and going to pumpkin patches, riding bales of hay on a tractor. I know Mark hasn’t been posting recipes at quite the same clip as when we first started this blog. He’s still been cooking, of course, and we’ve still been eating, but there is less time these days for more elaborate dinners. Even more so than when he used to work a full time job, he’s been throwing together improvised meals because we’ve been so busy, and even when something comes out totally delicious, he’s hasn’t had the time to remember and write down what he did. But I do hope that we can get some recipes up for anything we might make with apples once we get back from the weekend. Anyone have some favorite recipes they care to share?
