With so much chocolate lately, this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays selection came just in time. Of course, anything involving caramel apples doesn’t need an excuse for me.
If you are reading this Sunday morning, I’m currently running my annual half-marathon. Running is not my thing. I prefer spinning classes and circuit training. Every year my town holds a half-marathon and every year I run as a challenge to myself, trying to beat the previous year’s time. Since I don’t like running for exercise, I don’t train for the race. Since I don’t train, my legs will be sore for the next two days. Every year I vow to train and every year I don’t. It’s a ritual. It amazes me every year that I can run the whole course. So, please wish me luck and hope my legs won’t be too sore this week.
I have extra motivation this week in the form of a Caramel Apple Turnover with Sweet Ricotta Filling. I made these on Saturday, but because of the race I haven’t tasted one yet. My husband gobbled down two and he said they were delicious, even with apples. He has a thing against apples. He actually liked the apples in the turnovers. I think because they were cooked to death in a caramely sauce.
Thank you to Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures for picking this week’s selection as we bake our way through the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. Please visit her blog for the recipe.
