I’m finally back from Reno, and Larry got to pick the dinner menu tonight since I was gone for his birthday on Monday. Although I think I’m a capable cook, I have always failed at most pies. Larry loves apple pie, but every time I tried, it just didn’t turn out right – until late last year, when I found a recipe that I could successfully execute. This is a beautiful pie, and it doesn’t require a lot of time. It tastes great, too.
Wine: Sapphire Hill 2001 Tom Feeney Ranch Old Vines Zin (Russian River Valley, California). We recently joined Sapphire Hill’s wine club. We’re impressed with the wines at this small winery. This old vine Zin is excellent – big, jammy, and well balanced. Just like I like my Zins.
