Ok, I don't mean eating spinach and apple pie together on the same plate. Ewwww.
But a salad with baby spinach fresh-picked from my experimental spinach garden sure is yummy! Look at the perfect lil leaves on this spinach - this is the 3rd salad I've made since last week. I'm so happy with my little experiment, and its been fun too.
'Course I have babied my spinach... kept it watered every other day, covered at night with the plastic row cover, uncovered during our good sunny days, and lately I've been adding some old flannel sheets and towels on top of the row cover at night, to protect the spinach from the colder temps we've been getting. Tomorrow night will be a true test, as we're supposed to get our first hard freeze. We'll see how long my spinach can last!!
I made a sour cream apple pie this afternoon from 3 giant Honeycrisp apples I've had for several weeks now. I ate one apple when I first got them and oh my was it delicious. But the remaining 3 were getting old... I was going to make applesauce, but then decided since they were so BIG, I could easily make a pie, which would be so much yummier!
And so I did. Here's a link to the recipe if you're itching to try it - I made my own crust. I'm eating a warm piece right now as I type this... and it's deelish!! I don't think I've ever made a sour cream apple pie before... I've only made traditional apple pies. But I'm lovin' this sour cream version. Wonderful with a glass of cold milk. Matter of fact, it's serving as my dinner tonight.
Oh, the salad?? That's for hubby when he gets home from work later tonight. ;-)
