Keep reading for our apple picking adventure. Up first…
The other day I made a great stir fry for lunch – shrimp, snap peas, Brussels sprouts, okra, red peppers, bok choy, and maybe some other things.
I played around with my camera settings for this photoshoot. I think this was a lower aperture…
And so was this (different angle though)… Which do you like best?
I sauteed everything in a fair amount of sesame oil, added some garlic and chili powder, and ate it after it cooled. One of my weird food quirks is that I don’t eat anything super hot or super cold. I like to cool my food in the freezer before I eat it, and if I’m eating ice cream or froyo, I let it melt first or I zap it in the microwave for a few seconds to get it soft.
Bobby and I headed down to Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville, CA on Sunday for some apple picking. We got about 16 pounds – can’t wait to make some serious yums with them. I’m thinking:
- Oatmeal Applesauce pancakes
- Appled Brussels sprouts
- Carrot Soup with Roasted Apples
- Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bake (BSI)
- Raspberry-Rubbed Pork with Apples and Berries
- Apple Banana Oat Loaf (BSI)
- Apple muffins – vegan!
- Oatmeal Raisin Applesauce Cookies
- Macrobiotic Apple Pie!!!
Here are a few highlights from the day.
What would YOU make with 16 pounds of apples? (Probably more like 9 or 10 pounds at the moment… I eat a lot of apples.)
