One time last year I tried cooking an apple, all by itself. Not into a cake or pie or into muffins or oatmeal. Just an apple, on a griddle. Then I served it on a grilled cheese sandwich. It was a big hit with my husband, who loves apples, almost more than any other food.
Tonight I'll be on a airplane and I wanted to bring a snack that would travel well, wouldn't need heating or refrigeration and wouldn't be too smelly (like tuna). Also must be kid friendly. So I'm making apple cheddar grilled sandwiches. It's going to be so yummy!
