We often have leftover homemade bread at the end of the week, and I make a lot of bread pudding, but was looking for something a little different when I ran across a recipe for an "Apple Brown Betty" in the Fanny Farmer cookbook. I'd never had one--never even seen one in person.
It's delicious! I cut the sweetener & used agave syrup (1/2 c. agave syrup) and did use the lemon--it came out with this amazing lemony apple cinnamon buttery flavor.

The November pie challenge in the Ravelry pie challenge group is family recipes. Lacking any handed-down family recipes for pies, I looked in a family cookbook, for a pie that could have been made--my mother-in-law Pauline's copy of the Prudence Penny Binding of the American Woman's Cookbook. Every family I knew had this cookbook--this edition's 1950s color illustrations are amazing.

We had so much fun at the Nimbus Fish Hatchery! You can get fish food for a nickel, and we used lots of nickels to feed the baby trout. Paul took this photo of Cedric from his favorite vantage point--the water and all the hungry fish made him a little nervous.
There were tons of huge salmon at the gate, some brilliant red and others pink or black. They'll be opening the gates the morning of November 9--go visit!
