I ran into NDDC board member Anastasia Belfany and her hubby Mike at the James Gang HideAway this morning. So when proprietor Joan Spaulding brought them their favorite apple pie with caramel and whipping cream, I arranged them for a photo (click to enlarge). (The HideAway is now where The Market used to be.) She and Mike then bought me a piece of that famous pie upon their departure. Now I’m hooked.

Besides being a full-time mom, Anastasia’s been volunteering with the Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue Foundation.
