I couldn’t think of a single thing this week that started with A to photograph for our ‘A B See Meme‘. How lame is that? The only thing that came to mind was apples. I actually took this photo back in August when my daughter was learning to use the camera. We were practicing Macros. I don’t even much like apples… but I eat them because I know they are good for me. In fact, I think we have one in the fridge that I’m planning on eating today. I don’t mind them with peanutbutter to dip the peeled slices in. And no, I don’t like apple pie, either. My husband calls me ‘unAmerican’. Oh, well – at least I’m a Texan. I’d much prefer Tex-Mex to apple pie any ‘ol day.
My husband, on the other hand, is an apple fiend. He eats apples nearly every day. He doesn’t mind the skin on them, either. I can remember when my healthy child wanted an apple and I told her she could have one as long as Mama didn’t have to cut it up. I’m not always that lazy, but that particular day, I was dog tired. A few minutes later, she brought me a stem. I asked her where the rest of the apple was and she said, “I ated it”.
She ate the entire thing. Seeds, core, skin, and all. Just a little stem left. That’s my husband and my daughter for you. I swear they are part rabbit.
Me and the unhealthy boy – we prefer our chocolate, milk/cream/cheese, bread, meat, rice, and taters. In that order.
