I mentioned the other day that I have a good friend who has taken up baking. A totally new interest that comes out of the blue for me. Peter actually worked for me at the University for many years, but I've never heard him mention learning how to bake before. We did have wonderful years bringing students up to the BeaverValley on field courses and got to know many spots in the valley really well. In fact those years of experience are really where 'Seasonsinthevalley' got started.
Peter has a small orchard up here so he has lots of apples, although they don't get sprayed so they tend to be scabby. Scabs don't matter if you're peeling the apples though so he had a surplus of apples to deal with. On Sunday afternoon he showed up with an apple pie, some apple crumble, several apple muffins, and a delicious apple dessert! Yes, believe it or not, all in one day!
Both Mrs. F.G. and I are really impressed with his baking (it tastes great!), and we enjoyed a really nice two hours of conversation. It was great to have a friend take the time and make the effort to come up here and see me, since it's a lot harder for me to go and see them. And now we've got dessert for at least a week or two!
Friends bearing fresh baked goods are the best!ReplyDelete
