Apples aren’t vegetables!
TODAY IS NATIONAL EAT YOUR VEGETABLES DAY AND NATIONAL APPLE STREUDEL DAY!
There are constant arguments out there as to what constitutes vegetabledom. Vegetability? According to the ever-reliable internet, “In everyday usage, a vegetable is any part of a plant that is consumed by humans as food as part of a savory meal.” So I guess apples can be vegetables?
Regardless, when we think vegetables, we think stuff your mom tried to feed you as a kid that made no sense. This weird, watery, crunchy thing? No flavor? Eat it! It’s good for you!
So yes, we totally could have prepped some vegetables in a beautiful presentation, but we wanted to go back to our roots when we were once told, “Eat your vegetables!” We present: baby carrots and celery sticks. Yay.
We got these itty bitty Apple stritties from HyVee the other day:
Gooey with a hint of crispy edge. It’s not the full-on streudel deal, but it was great nonetheless.
Tomorrow is International Picnic Day, National Cherry Tart Day, and International Sushi Day!
