A couple of days ago I picked some wild apples from Folly Hill and yesterday put them to good use making a traditional American-style apple pie. Flat Anna helped of course - as did our guest, Jonny. It was a bit runny (the pie, not Jonny) because we just couldn't wait for it to cool down before taking a slice, but it was very, very yummy! A nice mix of tart and sweet. Probably not very good for the waistline but certainly good for the pleasure sensors! Besides, we walked off a fair bit of calories this afternoon. Sadly, Dave had to work, so Jonny and I took the dog out on our own and did an 8-mile round trip walk along the River Thames, starting at the Swan Inn in Radcot, stopping at The Trout Inn at Tadpole Bridge just outside of Bampton for a quick brew before setting back toward Radcot. It was a lovely autumnal day - sunny with a light breeze. Then we came home and had a nice lunch - leftover lentil soup, spinach quiche and a kale and spinach salad. Very yummy. I'm feeling guilty about not spending time in the studio - but only slightly. Being out in nature is always good for inspiration! I'll be back at it in full force tomorrow and looking forward to putting that inspiration to use!
