A Yummy Way to Start the Day!

This morning I was shoveling around in my refridgerator hoping to find one of the fruits in there appealing. I love bananas, but so does LW and there was only one left... so he got it. Then I started looking for an orange. Found one! But it was to mushy... not a good sign. After eating an Apple Cinnamon Muffin and thinking about it for a little long I finally picked up an apple.

Apples are hard to eat with braces people! I have to cut them up into bite sized pieces and it's just a pain! I love apples! But since having braces I dread eating them.

I cleaned the apple, took out it's stem, off came the sticker... and I stared at it.k

I grumbled.

I placed a little roughly the apple on the counter and sighed. What could I do with this apple?!

Then I thought of it.

I had seen a recipe long ago for baked apples. I didn't remember it and I didn't really look very hard at the recipe when I had originally found it, but I knew the basic concept.

So what did I do?

I cut off the top part of the apple and dug out the center with a spoon (there's got to be an easier way to do that, btw). The I dropped in a couple SMALL spoonfulls of peanut butter and squished it down with my apple core disemboweling spoon. I then poured honey on top of that and smeared some over the edges of the apple. Then I sprinkled a fair amount of cinnamon over it.

While I did all this I turned the oven on to 350. By the time I was done so was my apple. I slipped it into the oven for 10 minutes and took it out, nearly drooling over the smell. I sliced that apple in half and placed some cool whip in the center. Topping it off with another drizzle of cinnamon.

The outcome was divine.

I still had to cut it up, but with this your supposed to and it was so worth it. :)

You could really put anything you want into the apple. Then bake at 350 for 10 minutes and wal-la! You have yourself a delicious breakfast, or dessert!

Until Next Time!
