I’m not a person who really enjoys fruits as much as the others. I have no idea why I’ve never felt as connected to them like perhaps a bar of chocolate or cakes. (haha!! well who wouldn’t be connected to those??!!??) I know that fruits are good for me and my head compels me to buy some apples or bananas when I do my weekly groceries. I get them and feel extremely proud of myself as I know that I’m now going to be super healthy. As I walk back from the store, I have all these visions of me with washboard abs, toned legs in this gorgeous form fitting dress. Then I get home, put my groceries away and slump out in front of the television, the apples all forgotten.
So while I was going through Tantoverde’s post on apples and her scrumptious looking apple pie, it reminded me of the time when I used all the apples I had bought to make an apple crumble. I was expecting guests over for dinner – my parents, grandparents, cousins and my aunt. The one thing about Indians is that sometimes they can be super fussy about food. My aunt falls in that category. She does not eat meat, does not experiment with different cuisines, does not eat eggs, garlic, …, …, … it is quite a long list. Fortunately Indian cooking is forgiving, and I made some really good main course for her.
Its the dessert that I’m most proud of. I made an apple crumble, which I have to tell you, is one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much my aunt loved it. The success of that dinner party was a big achievement for me as a married woman 🙂
… And this is how I like my fruits – In a yummalicious dessert 😀
PS – I followed Gordon Ramsey’s recipie for the crumble which you can find here.
