Fall Apples: A bountiful A+ ideas for Thanksgiving Day and the season through
Fallin' for Apples this Fall!
Fall is here and what does it mean? Lots and lots of APPLES!!!
We drive far to the country and get off to an apple orchard farm. Everyone gets so excited to ride that jiggly farmer's wagon dropping everyone at the wide variety apple orchards. Searching for the right apple, finding the taste that you crave for having, and picking the ones you wish to incredibly turn into magic for the family to savour. This hub offers other fresh apple "A+" ideas rather than the ordinary traditional granny's apple pie. One could be more creative in the kitchen and make use of the APPLE which was in the first place, a tempting fruit shared to the first man and woman from the Garden of Eden.
The Forbidden Fruit...a sweet twist
Eve accepted the forbidden fruit from the serpent, gave it to Adam and so the history of the apples began...
Eve was given the fruit of knowledge so she may know what to do with it. She took a sophisticated bite and convinced Adam to take the next bite. Right at the same moment, their eyes were opened seeing more possibilities from ONE damn good apple. Mankind then was born...so was Eve's apple skills that made the world go round...
A Lifetime of Sweetness
In Greek mythology, you will come across these words many times-- "The Food of the Gods". What exactly is "Food of the Gods"? Ambriosia, is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods in believing to becoming immortal, to live ageless forever whomever eats and drinks from it. The gods were always served so much bountiful ambrosia choices and one of these choices is the apple.
Just over our Thanksgiving Day dinner (Monday, October 8), my daughter and I tested making a Chicken Apple Pizza with only the available ingredients I had that time. However, I would like to give credit to a fellow hubber- teaches12345 for her idea on a delicious looking Chicken Apple Pizza dessert http://teaches12345.hubpages.com/hub/A-Delightful-Granny-Smith-Apple-Pizza-Dessert. I know that I didn't have the right stuff to try on her recipe, so I opted instead of the ones I got and simply made my version of a chicken-apple pizza!
Main ingredients: chicken breast strips, red apple, loads of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, onions and fresh scallions. I had a ready rectangular pizza dough that I was able to use.
Now, let's start the temptation...
