I had such a lovely and relaxing weekend! After a delicious breakfast at Pine State Aradan and I took advantage of the gorgeous fall weather we've been having here in Oregon and went apple buying in the Hood River area. We stopped at a few farms but mostly got our apples at Kiyokawa Orchard since apples are sort of their specialty and they have so many verities. I think I got at least a few of most of them! I've been feeling too busy to really enjoy cooking lately, but I'm really looking forward to making this soup, and this pastry with all these apples.
