Snack of the Afternoon, 9/9/10: APPLES & HONEY

September 9, 2010

L'Shanah Tovah!

This was actually my snack yesterday afternoon, but I saved it for today because it’s OFFICIALLY Rosh Hashanah RIGHT NOW. But I’m going to eat apples & honey again tonight, so this isn’t a TOTAL lie.

As legend has it, this should cause me to have a sweet new year.

I’m not the type of person who adds sugar to fruit, because fruit is already sweet, but I gotta say– the tart Granny Smith apple with that sweet honey was delectable. And still healthy.

Now, if you’re looking for a sweeter, less healthy, apple-related way to celebrate the new year, I direct you to this most brilliant (as in, shiny) cupcake. It was spotted by one of my Binge operatives at a Crumbs Bake Shop in NYC. (I didn’t Binge-tag it because I didn’t take it myself.)

My sweet tooth hurts, just looking at this.

A big apple in The Big Apple. Get it?

That might go down as one of my favorite pictures ever. I spent several minutes gaping at it, earlier today. I consulted the Crumbs website, and they don’t list whatever flavor this is. [Wait! It's called The Big Apple... and it has to do with teacher appreciation? That's all I got.] I’m guessing it’s apple-something? Whatever it is, I love it.

Apples and honey!

Happy Rosh Hashana!

Happy Rosh Hashana!

L’Shanah Tovah! It’s Rosh Hashana!

The traditional Rosh Hashana snack is apples and honey. There is a song that Jewish kids sing that is literally just this line: “Apples and honey on Rosh Hashana!” Over and over again.

I’m singing it right now. In my head.

Am I a perv, or does that honey bear look a little bit suggestive? Arms folded back behind his head? Really?

Happy New Year! AND it coincides with a new fall season of TV. NICE!
