I just found out something extraordinary! There is a thing called Apple Dumplings! I stumbled on this purely be accident. It all started with the Boysenberry Pie Panic. You see, Wizard wants me to make Boysenberry Pie for Thanksgiving. It’s a childhood favorite of his.
This wouldn’t be a problem—if I could find frozen boysenberries. However I can’t. Not anywhere, I went to several stores and found tons of frozen berries, but no boysenberries. So I began searching online when I found out about Apple Dumplings. OMG they look awesome! Especially with caramel pecan sauce! I must try these. So in my excitement, I told Wizard about Apple Dumplings, and he…I’m not kidding…had a meltdown.
He blinked once like a toddler, then yelled, “I WANT BOYSENBERRY PIE!!! Not Apple Dumplings. What are those anyway? I’m not eating those!”
I’m staring at him in total confusion. First I wasn’t suggesting Apple Dumplings in place of Boysenberry Pie. And second, I’m the ONLY one allowed to have meltdowns in this marriage. And okay…I laughed. Hard. I mean he had a meltdown over Boysenberry Pie! Ranting that if I couldn’t find the berries, he’d buy a frozen pie and cook it himself and I’d never know the difference.
Picture me still laughing! Sure, I should have poured him some wine and been all nice, but I was having way too much fun.
Finally, once I could breathe again, I explained that boysenberries are a hybrid of blackberries and raspberries, and I’m willing to test bake a pie made out of those two berries to see if it’s good enough (otherwise known as Razzleberry Pie, but shhh, don’t tell him that, he might melt down again.) Once I told him that, he got all happy again.
But now I’m thinking about Apple Dumplings smothered in caramel pecan sauce and I’d totally add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to that. I must resist!!!
In other news, I’m trying to write, and whining about how slow I’m writing. Wizard rolled his eyes and said I’m not slow, and I’m being silly. HA! I wish I had a video of his meltdown about Boysenberry Pie!
So this weekend, I’m working, cleaning bathrooms and testing out the pie recipe to satisfy Wizard.
What are your weekend plans?
