Okay, loves. I’m slowing down. Mentally and physically, that is. Esposo is working out of town for an entire month and if you know anything about our household, you know that he is the primary chef. Yes y’all. I clicked on the right Match.com profile because I managed to snag a dude that cooks everything that I eat at home. Lucky isn’t even the word. There’s really nothing bad about this setup except that when dude leaves, I’m screwed. And not because I don’t know how to cook. The fluff on my hips, thighs and tum tum ain’t all from takeout meals. I’ve become so incredibly spoiled and lazy that having to shop AND cook for my own meals is just, well, a tad bit overwhelming.
Toss a picky toddler in the mix and most days I’m tempted to whip up a protein green smoothie for both Elle and myself. I’m getting it together and between Pinterest and this list of apple recipes, I’m thinking we may survive!
I have a list of gathered recipes that feature…apples! From savory to deliciously sweet, there really is something for all palates. My goal is to recreate at least 3-4 of these in the next few weeks. Awhile back I whipped up homemade apple sauce (gracias ole’ Crockpot!) and it was such a huge hit in this house. The recipes that I’ve got my eyes on are in bold.
