Fishin For Apples

October 29, 2009

This was one of those lunches that surprisingly just worked

Apple Cinnamon + BBQ Trout Salad

Leftover NC trout + chopped carrot, celery, green pepper and apple + cinnamon + Apple Cinnamon BBQ sauce (from EarthFare) =

Served with toast and plum jam.

Even the bears liked it! (Although they like anything wish fish given their genetics…)

I worked on my closet a little this morning. Transition to cold weather clothes is necessary. Matt did not like that I covered up the duvet when he got home!

SCULPT class was great. Not as intense as other days, but I still felt the burn. I got in 20 minutes on the Stairmaster as a warm-up too. ‘Twas a great workout.

After lunch the mail came! I got a card from my grandmother, who is an artist and sent some of her recent Sunday school art projects. The bird is a holy spirit that sits still very nicely and the card is St. Pascal, patron saint of kitchens! [And would believe that while I was double checking the spelling of his name that I discovered he was beatified TODAY – on 29 October 1618 by Pope Paul V!!]

Some more of my grandmother’s artwork: her animals and Adam + Eve

The Aztecs

And Shakespeare’s Seat

I am headed down to Rock Hill early to work on a project that involves gathering prices of foods at EarthFare. And speaking of fishin’ for apples, I’ve got a coupon for a free bag of honeycrisps with the purchase of an item at EF! YUM!

Back home late tonight for an easy soup dinner.

Take it from a former art major; awesome pieces of creativity right there. Whimsical and colorful. Also like the mish-mosh sweet-and-tangy salad idea; made something similar involving wheat berries, fresh and dried cranberries, and Annie’s honey mustard dressing last night.


2 Sara October 29, 2009 at 1:59 pm

hey kath,
what happened to the “header” underneath your banner (where there were various catagories) — i can’t see that anymore.


3 Kath October 29, 2009 at 2:02 pm

Not sure what you mean? Everything looks OK to me!



4 Meg @ Be Fit Be Full October 29, 2009 at 2:03 pm

I can’t believe there’s such a thing as apple cinnamon BBQ sauce! I’m intrigued by it!


5 Jessica @ How SWeet It Is October 29, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Interesting combo – but it sounds like it works!


6 Diana October 29, 2009 at 2:09 pm

That salad looks soooo good Kath! Cute bears 😛
I love your grandmothers’ artwork!


7 Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries October 29, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Apple cinnamon BBQ sauce sounds unreal!


8 Sarah R October 29, 2009 at 2:12 pm

Wow, that sounds much better than the salad I had for lunch! And a free bag of honeycrisps? Sounds like a good deal indeed!


9 maya October 29, 2009 at 2:22 pm

thats such a delicious and creative lunch! love that idea, sweet and savory is so good! and apples with savory dishes work so well,..i used to put salt on my apple slices(odd ? :) haha) but it was good actually!



10 amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) October 29, 2009 at 2:25 pm

Wow that artwork is beautiful!


11 Estela @ weekly bite October 29, 2009 at 2:36 pm

Very creative lunch!

A free bag of honeycrips… so lucky :)


12 christie @ honoring health October 29, 2009 at 2:37 pm

I have some apple BBQ sauce that I am planning to make some beans with!

There is the hole in the wall place on the Charlottesville downtown mall that makes a sandwich with sliced apples, cheese, spinach and BBQ sauce. I can’t think of the place now but it was SO good!


13 Julie October 29, 2009 at 2:42 pm

I love the artwork, your grandmother is very talented.


14 Chloe (Naturally Frugal) October 29, 2009 at 2:43 pm

Your grandmother’s art is awesome, what a great talent she has.

Love how creative that lunch is – turning leftovers into something new & delicious is always fun!


15 Rachael (La Dolce Vita) October 29, 2009 at 2:45 pm

I love your grandmother’s art! It’s so cute and funky!

mmmmmm honeycrisp apples. The honeycrisp season seems to be over in my neck of the woods (Vancouver, BC)… can’t find ’em anywhere anymore. Booooooo.


16 brandi October 29, 2009 at 2:45 pm

I love that Shakespeare chair!

21 Erin October 29, 2009 at 3:10 pm

Things I love:

your orange wall
your duvet (is it from C&B??)


22 Eve October 29, 2009 at 3:12 pm

You’re making me feel like I really need to go change over my closet!! It can be overwhelming when you take everything out, but then you feel so good when it’s done! I haven’t had a chance to change over mine yet, hoping one weekend I have some free time to do so!


23 Mama Pea October 29, 2009 at 3:14 pm

I love how Grandma hid Adam and Eve’s naughty parts. So clever :)


24 Emily, homecookedem October 29, 2009 at 3:17 pm

I need to change over my closet too!!!!!!

Love your Grandma’s cool art! :)


25 Andee (LAEasyMeals) October 29, 2009 at 3:39 pm

Your pictures look amazing! I love the playfulness of your grandma’s paintings, very creative


26 megan October 29, 2009 at 3:50 pm

a free bag of honeycrisps sounds great! although, I actually prefer golden delicious to honeycrisp apples. I chop one up every morning to put in my oatmeal – so good!


27 lynn (The Actors Diet) October 29, 2009 at 3:52 pm

i just cleared out my closet too, though in southern cali the weather never really requires a “winter wardrobe.” i am planning on hosting a swap with all my non-used stuff, to make sure they go to good homes.


28 Julia October 29, 2009 at 4:17 pm

Kath! Awesome pictures; your lunch looks really incredible :) What a work of art! Go you!


29 Megan October 29, 2009 at 4:26 pm

That lunch looks unbelieveably delicious – and Apple Cinnamon BBQ sauce!? Amazing!


30 sue October 29, 2009 at 4:30 pm

your grandmother’s artwork is beautiful! and woohoo for a free bag of honeycrisps…i need a new bag!


31 Paige@ RunningAroundNormal October 29, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Ahh, the ol’ closet switch out! Something I still need to do as well! Good luck on your project:)


32 Shannon October 29, 2009 at 4:42 pm

Trout is my favorite fish! I love it lightly battered with lemon and tartar sauce mmm. Looks like a delicious lunch to me :) Your grandmother’s funky artwork is genius! The colors are so vibrant and fun. Have a great night!!!


33 jason October 29, 2009 at 4:50 pm

love the artwork. does your grandmother sell online?


34 K October 29, 2009 at 5:03 pm

Apple Cinnamon BBQ sauce sounds awesome!! What a great flavor combo!

That artwork is great – the colors are so vibrant! Score on the free bag of apples!


35 Cynthia (It All Changes) October 29, 2009 at 5:22 pm

I would never think to add apples and cinnamon to BBQ sauce and fish. Sounds strange. But I’m willing to try anything once.


36 maria October 29, 2009 at 5:27 pm

Your grandmother’s art work is fabulous. I love it! :) Gotta love having an artist in the family.


37 Megan October 29, 2009 at 5:40 pm

Apples in salad is the BEST. Especially with cranberries!!


38 Jenn (www. ) October 29, 2009 at 6:18 pm

Love your grandmother’s art work! It’s so colorful and pretty. :)



39 Susan October 29, 2009 at 6:51 pm

Apple cinnamon bbq sauce sounds awesome!! I also love your grandmother’s artwork, it’s pretty funky! My Nana is a really great painter too, I’ve already put dibs on most of her paintings 😛


40 Jenna October 29, 2009 at 6:53 pm

41 thepinkpeppercorn October 29, 2009 at 7:05 pm

43 Tou Tou's Little Creation Cafe October 29, 2009 at 7:46 pm

Apple for BBQ sauce? looks so yummy!
btw, as a freshman in this foodie blog world, you amazed me by posting so many interesting eats every day!!! it’s so much fan reading your blog, just I’m being too slow to catch up with your updates!


44 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope October 29, 2009 at 8:28 pm

What a neat combo! Oddly enough, it really sounds delicious!

I’m so impressed by your grandma’s artwork. How neat that you have so much of her work!


45 Kath October 29, 2009 at 8:36 pm

Thanks for all the nice comments on my grandmother’s art!! She is not a professional artist – meaning she doesn’t paint for a living – but she has hundreds of paintings and has been in galleries! I don’t believe that her art is for sale, but it should be!



46 Lu October 29, 2009 at 9:05 pm

Yum. The Trout and BBQ salad looks great.


47 amber October 29, 2009 at 9:20 pm

gorgeous pictures, the lighting is amazing!


48 Sara October 29, 2009 at 9:49 pm

hey kath,
it seems fixed now…i wonder whether it was another viewing problem for some users (i was also one of the people who couldn’t see the KERF redesigned banner either several days ago).


49 ashley October 30, 2009 at 12:13 am

i saw this and thought of your blog! its only good for today (friday) but its a good deal!


50 Kath October 30, 2009 at 8:14 am

Oooooo love Marley Coffee!! But next time I will just get my two favorite flavors (the One Love and the second one I tried which I can’t remember right now.) It’s on my Xmas list!



51 Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life October 30, 2009 at 8:00 am

Your grandmother’s artwork is beautiful! I love how you come up with really awesome food combos!
