These Dreams Go On When I Close My Eyes

Allegedly Townes Van Zandt wrote If I Needed You in his sleep while dreaming. I have occasionally come up with the best jokes that way but when I wake up they end up being utter nonsense. In my dream they're hysterical.

But last night I dreamt of this amazing baked apple slice. So I rushed home after work to roast up some lemon chicken and for the side I was to recreate this vision.

I first dunked the apple slices in orange juice, then dipped them in a combination of panko bread crumbs, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest. After they were coated, I dotted some butter on the tops and baked them for about 25 minutes.

These ended up being a really great side dish. Not too sweet. Such a refreshing taste to pick one up and have the warm crunch, the slight carmelization, the actual baked apple taste and guess what? Refrigerated and eaten as a snack the next day, Awesome! These will be invited back.
