Of Granny Smiths and hitchhikers (June 5, 2008)Yesterday, I found this recipeI wanted to try for the weekend. It does seem like a lot of work considering I'll have to take care of the crust and and peeled apples first, but I'm sure the pay-off will be great.
It also helps to know that the Shopwise branch nearest my workplace had a special on Granny Smith Apples.
I make a mad dash for it, pick up about three six-packs of apples (with two free grapefruits each pack), along with some bread, tomato sauce (for another dish) and lunch ramen. With four heavy and rather bulky bags in tow, I clocked into the office in time, and began settling down.
That's when I noticed I had a hitchhiker.
