Out and About: Ohio Wrap Up

First I should apologize for my lack of posting since I have gotten back from Ohio. I’m not really sure whats going on in my head but I’m feeling a little cloudy and uninspired.  You would think that I would have all the time in the world to cook and bake but to be honest I don’t want to even set foot in the kitchen.  Oh well I guess. There is one exciting thing going on in New York. It’s apple season and I can’t wait to go pick some McIntosh.  In fact the other night my boyfriend and I were laying in bed and he said to me “man I want a McIntosh really bad” and I said “well I could get some apples at the store for you” and then he looked at me and said “red delicious are disgusting I only eat McIntosh”…haha I never knew he had such strong feelings about apples, but I have to agree that red delicious are not that….well delicious. Ok now onto my Ohio wrap up. It’s just a little bit of everything else I did while on my trip back home.

    Sounds like a fun/delicious adventure! I’ve never had fried chicken gizzards, but most anything fried is pretty darn good!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — September 16th, 2009 @ 3:02 pm

    How weird – red delicious have been my favorite since I was a kid!! I pick them over any other. I had to force myself to branch out and try some different varieties. Enjoyed your pictures – lots of delicious eats!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — September 16th, 2009 @ 3:05 pm

      I grew up eating red delicious apples but finally broke free and started trying different varieties. I’m a big fan of the NY McIntosh, Fuji and Granny Smith.

    I can’t do cow tongue, but I’ll have that chicken sandwich or breaded veal!

    And tell Mr. Nutmeg Nanny I only eat Gala apples, so I understand.

    • nutmegnanny replied: — September 16th, 2009 @ 3:06 pm

      Yeah I’m with ya on the cow tongue but man oh man are the veal and chicken delicious! I wish I had some in my house right now!! 🙂

    I completely agree about the Red Delicious apples…COMPLETELY misnamed! You can imagine how surprised I was when my husband told me they’re the only apples he eats! (What?!) Now I’m stuck buying 2 kinds of apples…something actually delicious (like McIntosh or Empire) for me, and Red Delicious for him. 😉

    • nutmegnanny replied: — September 16th, 2009 @ 3:07 pm

      Awww what a nice wife you are buying him his apples of choice. I actually just bought some McIntosh apples for my other half this evening. I know he will be happy to see the apples sitting in the fruit bowl.
