We had such a beautiful weekend... we all went for a road trip out to a friend's apple orchard on a bluff overlooking Lake Pepin. It was beyond dreamy. A long car ride with beautiful views of hills, changing leaves, and the mighty Mississip, a sleeping baby in the back seat, and a trunk full of Apples. I can't think of anything better. Can't wait to make apple sauce, baby food for Claude, and the Onion Apple Casserole in the Joy of Cooking ... any other suggestions?
