'I'm in love with these apples' — Flautist on the Pink Lady


I've been softening her up for years and this past Wednesday, June 27, 2007, she finally caved.

You can run, Flautist — but you can't hide (at least, not forever).

Without further ado, then, her very first bookofjoe post.

You know, totally against my nature, lately I've been paying attention to all this food and cooking stuff. I've even been mining the posts of yesteryear, looking at the stuff I originally ignored.

And so, with the brash confidence that only an idiot newcomer to the world of thinking about food for longer than it takes to heat it up could exhibit, I'd like to highly recommend to your millions of fans the greatest apple on earth: the Pink Lady [above and below].

A gorgeous pinky-magenta-yellow outside with a white-to-cream inside, a heavenly aroma before and during peeling, a dense equally sweet and tart chew, they're lovely. The real genuine Pink Ladies wear little stickers with pink hearts. They have web sites and everything. I'm in love with these apples.


Let's make sure she doesn't make this her last post ever by giving her a worldwide bookofjoe cheer... how's it go, anyway... anyone remember?

I stand amazed! And so glad that it wasn't me carrying on about my bathtub ring or something. Apples, how nice! Joe, you sly dog.

And speaking of the apples, I got carried away and ate three of them late last night and today there is a great deal of rumbling and unpleasantness. But don't let that stop anybody.

I've always been partial to Fujis, but who can argue with such passion? I'll try 'em. See, now aren't you glad you caved to the pressure?

When I hear Pink Ladies, I think Rizzo, not apples, though. I guess I'm showing my age! ;)

Congrats, Fl(a)utist, on your first post! (But we know that all temptation started with an apple, so something tells me you won't be able to resist a second posting too!) ;)
