you may be tired of apples, but i'm not yet. when i went apple picking a few weekends ago i made a point to not overindulge, because who the hell wants 100lbs of apples? typically i like to make a few apple-related dishes, i swear, i have just two more apple-y dishes to make, only one of which will probably be blog-worthy. just humor me, ok?
this past weekend was a particularly nice one for me -- a bbq with H&R and their very precious son Obi, as well as a handful of phamily & friends. i've talked about them before, they host the best sunday afternoon gatherings, where there's always plenty to eat, mutual appreciation for food and tv. we gather during busy times in our lives, to slow down, to catch up, watch a bit of football (how 'bout them skins and ravens, eh?) and for this particular time, to celebrate a birth that occured 29 years ago.
for my cousin jon's bday, buu brought georgetown cupcakes (um, the chocolate peanut butter one? to.die.for.) and i made hungry rabbit's toffee apple cake that was such a pleasure to make, tho i had a mini anxiety attack during the drowning process & well, i burned the butterscotch sauce. i made the cake the day before, wanting at least 24 hours for the flavors to meld together before cutting in. it was the perfect dessert to have on an unseasonably warm sunday afternoon, with friends.
recently attended the 11th Annual DC APA Film Festival and saw the movie Empire of Silver, i even met the director Christina Yao.
