A junior high substitute teacher, Mr. Menell (sic), once said something that stuck with me forever…
“An apple pie without the cheese is like a hug without the squeeze”
It was the grossest thing I ever heard and his words still haunt me
I recalled Mr Menell’s (sic) old chestnut today, National Apple Pie Day, as I enthusiastically (and interuptedly) said ‘YES!!!’ to my waitress’s offer of vegan coconut vanilla ice cream with my apple pie, in case she was going to finish her sentence with “…or some cheese”
It was delicious but the ice cream far outweighed the pie in flavour and texture. Two thumbs up on that, Aphrodite’s!
Happy Apple Pie Day everyone – hope it’s full of cheese less slices !
