“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” This one was particularly full of fall leaves, cold mornings, and warm goodies. To keep up with my pie a week regiment, I knocked out three more before Halloween thanks to a few friends.
Fall is in full swing here in Palo Alto. Leaves are changing, Halloween decorations are popping up around the neighborhood, the air is crisp, especially in the morning. I had an exam for my class and have been listening to George Winston’s Linus & Lucy on repeat in my kitchen. It even rained last weekend a few times! All of this has put me in a pie making mood, so I present the next installment of a year of pies.
Last Saturday morning I fell in love with the Downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market. I woke up at 6:00, cleaned the kitchen, and took the blissful five minute bike ride to Gilman. What for? Fresh seasonal ingredients for our first Palo Alto dinner guests! Here’s the latest on a year of pies.
This is my first week after leaving work. Since my lineup of speech path volunteering gigs and fall quarter classes won’t start till September, I found myself with some good ole fashion time off. What have I been up to? Errands, socializing, the apartment hunt, and lighthearted reading. In other words, here’s a half-hearted attempt at justifying my post-work existence.
