11 a.m. Bake Apple Pie
6 p.m. Eat dinner at Shabuway in downtown Mountain View
Start of the day with a trip to Sunnyvale’s Farmers’ Market to buy fresh fall fruit, such as apples and pears. If you haven’t had breakfast yet, some local vendors sell pastries while others offer free samples, so make sure to try some. When you get home, invite a few friends over to try out an apple pie recipe using the fruit from the farmers’ market. Think of this as practice for all the culinary delights you plan to make on Thanksgiving or as a fun bonding experience. After eating all that sugar, go to dinner at Shabuway on Castro Street for a taste of savory Japanese-style hot pot. When you’re done with your meal, walk it off and take advantage of California’s weather by window-shopping down Castro. End the day with the Peninsula Youth Theatre’s production of childhood classic “The Wizard of Oz.” Tickets are $24 per person.
