I had to go into work on Sunday but Adam and I fit a weekend’s worth of fun into Saturday. We drove two hours upstate to Twin Star Orchards for an afternoon of apple picking.
We did a complimentary cider tasting first. And enjoyed a wood-fired pizza – with fancy mushrooms and truffle oil – for lunch.
We came home with fewer than 10 apples (they actually just let us take our bag for free!) because we don’t have any grand baking plans, but had a great time walking around the orchard.
Date night was a new sushi spot in Great Neck. We split seaweed salad and edamame to start.
I got a meh veggie roll and a fantastic spicy crab roll for dinner.
They were out of the mackerel Adam wanted so they gave us free red bean ice cream with our bill.
New candy bar for dessert.
The popping candy didn’t have much get up and go but the milk flavored cream was very pleasing.
New take on an old casserole. I made smoked trout noodle casserole.
I loosely followed Martha’s recipe for the sauce. With whole-wheat rotini pasta, tons of sautéed mushrooms and chopped celery, smoked trout, and dill and smoked paprika. Topped with smoked gouda and crushed sour cream and onion potato chips.
Served with a new (to us) beer, coconut caramel chocolate brown ale. I don’t usually drink ales but this was unique enough to hold my interest, at least for 3/4 of the bottle.
What’s new with you?
