Apple pie baked in the apple

These came from a admittedly not well thought through dinner.  My mum's friend from Japan was staying the night, and I volunteered to make dinner.  I made two pasta sauces (pasta ala vodka (without cream) and a "Turkish meatballs" sauce), and decided to make the apple pies in the apple for dessert.

There's only one bad thing I can say about these apple pies, and that's if you put a hole in the apple skin, you end up with a gluggy mess on the bottom of the tin (still tastes great, though).  I loooved this with icecream, and it didn't dry out, either!  Mm, so good.

I'm really looking forward to make these again, and to hone my apple-excavating skills.   A girl's gotta have some quirky dessert recipes up her sleeve ;)  I got the recipe from here!

Until next time,

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
