Apple of my Eye Coveted Cookbooks By Cheryl Duncan Assistant editor Autumn, like the spooks that herald its Halloween holiday, sneaks in atop the Plateau. Its nuances are barely discernible. We’re wearing shorts and flip-flops. The grass still needs cutting, and we’re heating up the grill for burgers, chicken and the last of the garden’s harvest. The signs are all there: The hours of daylight in the evening are diminishing, and the long-awaited tomatoes begin sharing basket space with an apple or two. Out come the cinnamon and nutmeg for those glorious pies and desserts. Then the calendar catches up — even though mild temperatures can be deceiving. And the leaves show off their glorious reds, oranges and yellows. Can Thanksgiving be far behind? Apples are the perfect way to usher in the new season. Sweet, crunchy and full of nutrients, they’re great for snacks at the desk or after school, and they’re a great addition to salads. And what’s more comforting that coming home to the aroma of an apple pie baking in the oven? Take a bite of fall — and savor the flavor. Largest Selection Of Adjustable Bases On The Plateau!
