Apple Brie and Red Licorice

Adventure abounded for breakfast today!  Not exactly by choice…
I woke up, all ready to go to hot yoga.  I got in the shower.  When I got out of the shower, my dog had a weird look on his face.  Not like he had done anything wrong, per se, but weird.  I sat down on the floor to pet him, and I smelled, um, could it be, licorice?  Why does my dog smell like licorice? 
I then I saw it. 
Red licorice vomit on my floor. 
My house is all hardwood, except the two bedrooms.  The two bedrooms are carpet.  Where did my cute, sweet, smart little beagle throw up?  Yep, in my bedroom.  On the carpet.  Fantastic.
No yoga for me.
After cleaning it up and loving some on the puppy, in spite of him eating the remainder of my licorice, I decided to make breakfast.  I have been lusting after this recipe for a few weeks, ever since I read the blog post on it.
I have never actually cooked apples before.  I now it can be done, my grandma makes baked apples.  But I have yet to try it.  I was feeling the need for adventure.  And for something to do, in the absence of yoga, I needed something to clear my mind.
As always, the process of cleaning, slicing, cutting, stirring cleaned my soul.  The smells that mixed in the air filled my senses.  And the end result, the deliciousness of it, oh my! exactly what the doctor ordered!  The recipe itself calls for crackers, but I didn’t bother.  I just put it in a bowl and ate it with a spoon.  Amazing.
Tonight, the roommate is returning from vacation.  I’m making her dinner.  Sheperd’s Pie.  I have read many recipes and finally decided on one.  Then, I read about mashed potatoes.  I love mashed potatoes very much.  However, I have only made them a few times.  I wanted the mashed potatoes to be perfect to top it.  The New Best Recipe has tons of information in it, as it does for all recipes.  I am trying it out.

Off to the kitchen!


  1. What is it about dogs and rugs or carpet? I think they aim for it? no more rugs in my home, not even by the doors. It's all tile and a lot easier to clean :)

  2. I have no idea! But man...I wish he could find a hardwood surface, SOMEWHERE! hehe. :)
