Well hello Monday. How did it come so fast? As our school and social schedules get into full swing the days are flying by this month. We had a normal weekend of yard work, hosting neighbors for cocktails, apple picking, apple pie baking and lots of football watching. Basically an all-American weekend north of the border.
The apple season is in full swing here. We picked cortlands, mackintosh and galas…50 pounds worth! I should be in the kitchen making applesauce but I think I’ll wait till my little helpers are back home. They love giving the food mill a whirl. While we baked a traditional apple pie on Sunday, this no-crust apple pie is also one of my favorite melt-in-your-mouth dessert recipes. Don’t forget vanilla bean ice cream on the side!
The kids were great helpers at the apple orchard we discovered outside of Toronto city limits. It was beautiful to get to the country and the sky was amazing after a big downpour. It’s so much flatter here than I expected and it’s been fun to keep exploring around our new home.
On to this week’s menu…
Monday~ CORN (for new readers, this means Clean Out Refrigerator Night) We have 3 choices of leftovers (not including pie) that we need to tackle.
Tuesday~ Chicken Nuggets, Roasted Carrots and Israeli Couscous. (which is called Pearl Couscous here and makes much more sense.)
Wednesday~ Veggie Pizza on Naan bread.
Thursday~ It’s our 10 year wedding anniversary so I’m making my favorite guy a new lemon chicken recipe which is always a win for him. It’s a great one pot meal so clean up will be quick!
Friday~ Date night!
Have an awesome week everyone!
