Weekend Special – Celebrate Apple Season

It’s the last day of summer and what a gorgeous day! And the weekend promises more of the same. It is a good weekend to be out and about. Enjoy the sunshine and visit you local Farmers’ Market, explore a corn maze or pick-your-own apples. Home again; treat your family and friend to a delicious dinner. And don’t skimp on the apples!

Not sure where to start?

How about a lovely platter of local cheeses, crisp apple slices and crunchy Roasted Almonds. No need to hurry; unwind and relax with a glass of wine. If you’ve never tasted apple wine or hard cider, it might be fun to give some a try.

When it’s time to gather around the table, start with a Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes.

And for the main event? Try my Roasted Pork Loin with Apples & Onions. It’s perfect on a cool, crisp evening. Just add a spoonful of Creamy Polenta or Smashed Potatoes to complete your dinner.

And dessert? Is there anything better than sweet and spicy apples? Apple pie would be perfect. I’m not sure which I like more … my Rustic Apple Tart or Rustic Apple Croustade. Top your pie with a scoop of creamy vanilla or spicy ginger ice cream.

Enjoy the first official fall weekend! Bon appétit!
