Please to go over to DietsInReview - I have a kickin' article up on breakfast cereal (discussing how my mom was RIGHT all those years ago!) childhood health, and there is a great wonderful giveaway for a grocery list makeover going on. Go on, click - I'll wait!
HoneyCrisp apples are available. Do you hear me, people - should I send you a text - HoneyCrisp apples are in stores now. I love, love love these apples - they are a hybrid and the best apples out there, I think. Every year I scour the stores, hunting for the precious fruits and hoarding them from the kids.
Yes, yes I hoard them from my kids. I'm a terrible person. I don't mind admitting it - at just shy of $3 a pound,I'm not giving up an apple that someone will eat a ring of flesh from the middle and toss on the floor. Yes, I rescue said apples and slice them up, and then they get eaten, but I find my kids to be happy with Pink Lady, McIntosh, Empire or Braeburn at half the price. Oddly enough, no one in my family likes the Red or Golden Delicious variety - the texture is too mealy and the flavor off.
