Dan said when I told him I was making applesauce yesterday, his initial thought was “big deal”. That it would probably taste a little fresher than the store bought stuff… that it would be “good” but you know, “it’s just applesauce”.
Then after dinner, he was headed toward the kitchen for a little slice of applesauce cake (recipe coming soon) so I asked if he would bring me a little bit of applesauce while he was in there. He made a small plate of applesauce cake with applesauce on the side and I got about two bites of the applesauce.
I made a move in the general direction of the kitchen and he asked “Are you going to get more applesauce?”
“No, I was going to get the laundry from the dryer, but I can bring more applesauce if you want.”
His response: “Bring the jar.”
So, to those doubters out there who think “it’s only applesauce”, all I have to say is “neener-neener-neener”.
[as for those empty jars up top, they have been filled. Can you guess with what? hint: it’s not applesauce.]
