So, the blogsphere favorite the Mothership BBQ had a post the other day about a new side added to their menu--fried apples.
Now, I have to admit I love fried apples. And so I made plans to immediately (well, within the next day or so) head up there for some fried apples...oh yeah and some BBQ as well.
So, I went today. I arrived and was greeted by name by Dr Funkenweiser The Mothership BBQ is for bloggers what Cheers
was for Norm--where everybody knows your name. Only instead of beer, we have smoked meat. (Really I think it's a pretty good trade-off)
As I walked in, I scanned the menu, looking for the apples. And didn't see them.
Awwwwwwww, man, I thought to myself. They don't have them or they ran out or didn't make them today.
I haven't been this disappointed since UT lost to Florida last weekend.
So, I get up and place my order, adding hopefully, "You don't have any apples do you?"
Dr F looks at me funny (I'm used to this since most people tend to look at me funny from time to time) and goes, "Yes, I do."
I swear, I must have looked like I'd won the lottery because I started grinning like a fool. I added them as a side and happily awaited my meal.
So, to make a long story short--fried apples at Mothership BBQ are all good.
Go by, try them for yourself.
You won't regret it.
