the summer pinks are fading fast
slowly replaced by the warm golds, oranges, reds and purples

the change is inevitable
and I’m at peace with that
in a few days, it will be Labor Day weekend
it’s been a great summer but it’s time to move on
and I’m looking forward to an equally great autumn
here in New England

golden light
shorter days
cooler nights
little hints of things to come

on a hot summer day

not only hot, but the air was filled with humidity
super hair frizz weather
so what did I do?
I baked pies

Yup, that’s right

I cranked up the air conditioning and spent the afternoon in the kitchen

two pies, a peach and an apple

my oldest son, Eric is making his way east tomorrow on a business trip

and will be spending a week or so here at home

and since we missed celebrating his birthday with him this month

I thought I should make him something special for dessert

he’s not a birthday cake lover

his favorite has always been apple pie

So happy 25th birthday Eric!

and

happy 100th birthday Julia Child!

(even though apple pie is obviously not french)

Bon Appetit!
