Nice as pie

I made apple pie today because we were having guests for dinner. (photo taken before baking!)
apple pie

It was made with apples that we picked in Bilpin the previous week. Will proudly told his grandparents that he picked those apples at the orchard.

We also had a yummy piece of slow cooked veal for dinner. I didn't take a photo of it because really, it didn't look that spectacular, but it tasted so nice. Before you start jumping up and down and telling me about how veal is bad. This veal is raised on a biodynamic farm where it's allowed to free range with its mother.

If you are concerned at all about how the meat you eat is raised, and you are in Sydney, you have to check out Feather & Bone. Feather & Bone have been doing their thing for a while, and I have to admit that I'm a bit late coming to the party. Not late as in caring about what I eat, but late in buying from them. Not only do they offer excellent produce, but their customer service is fabulous. I showed up there on Thursday not having placed an order to see if they had anything on hand. They were super busy, but still took the time to help me and didn't make me feel like a nuisance. I could rave on and on about them, but I think their website does a better job than I ever could.

everyone should do excellent customer service- because, as you have just shown, the benefits, far outweigh a little extra effort- surely. They've sent you off happy and Chatting to your mates. I agree it's great to know where your meat comes from and wow, that pie looks fantastic x
