[FHCx336] National Pie Day/National Eat a Red Apple Day

We don’t want to believe it but

IT’S NATIONAL PIE DAY AND NATIONAL EAT A RED APPLE DAY!

Pie Day, PI DAY, was on March 14th. It’s not okay to claim this false idol. But we’ve come around to it, being that we don’t mind being asked to eat pie multiple times within a week (see Bavarian Cream and Lemon Cream in the last 4 days), let alone within a year. To give ourselves a bit of variety from the pies we’ve had recently, we got these little miniature pies from Target.

Cute, right? Shoulda used a quarter for scale…

Also, seriously, who bakes a pumpkin pie with a top crust? Old Fashioned does, we suppose…

Anyway, Eat a Red Apple Day was easy. There’s one of these in SP‘s lunch every day of the year! Thank goodness for apples that can survive winter.

Happy Halloween!

IT’S NATIONAL CARAMEL APPLE DAY!

Between pumpkin, candy corn, and caramel apples, we are really hitting the highlights of Autumn. Considering that it’s SPAK‘s favorite season for a number of reasons, we are more than happy to celebrate all of these.

It’s kind of traditional to do caramel/candy apples for Halloween. Some houses even hand out those wrapped caramel apples for trick-or-treaters. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to celebrate this in Disneyland where their caramel apples look amazing like these:

Yes, those are apples underneath all that.

But when we do have caramel apples at home, we like to use a bit of dip and apple slices.

LOOK AT THE DIP.

Controlled scoops.

Sweet and tart and delicious. And this way, we spare SP‘s moustache of getting completely stuck with caramel.

Tomorrow is National Deep Fried Clams Day, National Calzone Day, and National Vinegar Day.

[FHCx252] National Honeycrisp Apple Day

That’s right. We’re starting it.

WE DECLARE TODAY NATIONAL HONEYCRISP APPLE DAY!

Created in Minnesota, this apple was the product of amazing science. Get a bunch of scientists in the room to create the perfect apple. Yeah, Haralsons are great. And the new-ish Sweetango is tasty. But Honeycrisp takes the cake. And as they are just coming into season, we want to highlight this contribution of Minnesota’s that is unparalleled.

Insert all best adjectives that can be used to describe an apple. Great for eating raw. Great for cooking. Large. Perfect.

The SPAK fruit bowl always looks like this.

There are fewer fruits that we get excited about. The Sumo is one of them, and that has one of the shortest seasons of anything. Sad.

Tomorrow is National Wienerschnitzel Day!
