I had big dreams for this dish….BIG DREAMS! I even carefully measured out every ingredient, painstakingly and thoughtfully deciding which spices and fillers I wanted in there. I cored the apples perfectly, making them smooth and round and perfect for stuffing. I hand-picked the appropriate sized baking dish, one that would fit all the apples but not be stuffed to the brim, allowing the heat to even wrap them in a blanket of warmth in which to bake them to perfection.
I checked and double-checked and decided to bake them just a few minutes longer because they weren’t perfect just yet.
And then this happened.
At least I wrote the filling down!
