I've never been a huge fan of apples. They're a pain to eat whole and those Apple slicer doohickeys never work properly for me. I've seen the packages of already-sliced apples, but the price is a bit ridiculous to bother with them. I could slice them at home with a good knife then sprinkle lemon juice on them, but I don't like the way it makes them taste. Yes. I can be hard to please sometimes. I admit it.
So, a couple of weeks ago my mom and I walked into Albertsons to do our weekly shopping and I noticed a floor stand containing Honeycrisp Apples. I decided to buy a couple to see how they taste. I'd heard of them before but since I didn't like apples I never bought any.
I hope everyone has had a good weekend. Mine has been uneventful. Laundry yesterday and shopping today. My mom and I need to win a big jackpot with the lottery so we can hire someone to cook, clean and do laundry for us. Hahaha. $7 wins just aren't going to do it, though. It's kind of funny how I don't like to do all the cooking since there was a time I'd wanted to attend Culinary School. My grandfather was paying for our educations but he had two rules: you had to go to a 2 year junior college first and then a four year in-state university. My dad (it was his dad that was paying for our college) wouldn't let me even ask him if he'd for it and I couldn't afford it on my own. A year or so ago my dad's sister and her husband were in town for a couple of days and I mentioned to her about cooking school and how dad wouldn't let me even ask my grandfather to pay for it since it didn't follow "Bubba's" (what we had to call our grandfather) rules and my aunt said Bubba probably would've paid for it if I had asked. Too late now. And when your dad is telling you that you can't ask Bubba to pay for it, you're kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. What does all that have to do with anything? Nothing really except somehow I've ended up being the main dinner-maker person around here and I don't like having to cook all the time even though I'd wanted to go to cooking school. Hahaha
Okay. Well. That's it then, I guess. So, in closing, if you like apples and have never tried Honeycrisp (or HoneyCrunch from New Zealand), you should try one. You might like it.
