Odds and Ends

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

This weather makes me want to cook and blog. Yesterday was particularly busy. Two requests to meet for lunch next week. One lunch date will be with Tami at Running With Tweezers and the other will be with Denise Jackson, a totally fab art dealer. The week’s lunches will start Monday with my dear friend Holly and her sister, Aimee, who is in town for the U2 concert. Busy calendar! I also received a request to borrow my crockpot by a friend who is feeding a crowd that will be helping to clean up our neighborhood on Saturday. The other request came from my friend Dawn, who was looking for a recipe she and her sweet daughter could make for the bake sale at school. I suggested Pumpkin Bread. Dawn agreed that would fit the bill.

Also, I picked up a boodle of apples on our way out of Sky Valley last week and you have got to see the size of these babies – they are gigantic! Look at this one next to a regular apple.

They will be featured in tonight’s dessert – blueberry (also from our trip) and apple crisp. Don’t you love a fruit crisp? All fruity and streusely, hot from the oven, topped with vanilla ice cream? I swear, my tummy just rumbled as I was typing.

And you, dear reader, will have all the deets by tomorrow.

Happy Thursday!
