~ Granny Smith ~

Granny Smith Apples, that is....
Hi, Ya'll,
Hope this day is starting out fine for you.
 I just LUV these tart little guys....
I've got THREE here....

but put them on a mirror....
and THEN THERE WERE 6.
I know....
some days it seems like I have NO sense....
but I do love PLAYING.

"You don't quit playing because you grow old....
you grow old because you quit playing."
and you better believe
I BELIEVE IT ! 

PLAY every single chance you get,
 ladies and gents....
it is sooo 
GOOD FOR THE SOUL. 
   

 Granny Smith apples aren't only fun to take pictures of...
OOO, NOOO,
they AREN'T just a  PRETTY FACE....
they are SOOO awesome in your favorite
CHICKEN SALAD recipe.....








add a few multi grain chips to the plate and you are
                         GOOD TO GO.

THESE are good...but SUN CHIPS are better....:)





 Yes, siree, Bob..
these little nuggets of TARTNESS are MORE than just SKIN DEEP good.....
their goodness goes clear to the BONE CORE.
...APPLES and CRANBERRIES and WALNUTS..
OH  MY !
I hope all of you have the best GRANNY SMITH  kind of day.

Love and Kisses, bj

I like grapes and a little curry in my chicken salad, but next time I'll be trying apples! Your pictures are great. Everything looks so appetizing.

Diane said...

My eight-year-old will only eat Granny Smiths!

I never thought of putting apples in chicken salad but it sounds really good!

It's Just Dottie said...

I have not eaten one in a very long time.
I think it is time now...

Lady Jane said...

They will be at the top of my shopping list... I havent had one in a long time and I will definitely try some in my chicken salad....

Pondside said...

mmmm I believe I could taste that!
When my son was small, this was the only apple he'd eat. I'll have to try it in a chicken salad - sounds delicious.

LV said...

I like most all apples. especially the Pink Lady ones. The "dart" circles look nice on your blog.

Shelia said...

Hi BJness! Oh, I love me some apples and these are beauts! I love apples in my chicken and tuna fish salads. I've been eating the honey crisps but I think they're done as there weren't any at the grocery store today.
Hope your New Year is off to a good start.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Vee said...

And they're such a wonderful shade of green. I will try putting them in my chicken salad. I've got some all made up minus the apple.

Audrey said...

Love Chicken salad and put a lot of stuff in it ... finely chopped chicken, walnuts or pecans, diced apples and grapes. I think I added some celery this last time.
Salt and pepper and salad dressing. Yum. You make yours look so pretty. Will try the Granny Smith apples next time.
Hugs,
Audrey Z.

A friend in Georgia used to make her chicken salad with apples and walnuts. I don't eat meat anymore but sure do like the looks of everything else. Very healthy indeed! Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

-chuckle- Her White Look, is back. :-) Well, you got the more complicated look, out of your system. :-)

A possibility... Next time you have a super big pic (like the fireplace), perhaps you could put that as Header. But keep the rest of your blog look, white/plain?

The best of both worlds. White background! Grrrreat pic!

Just a possibility. :-)

Theresa said...

I will have one of those sandwiches, PLEASE! My favorite! Have a blessed day dear BJ, I love playing too:)

Madeline's Album said...

The apples and the sandwich looks so delicious. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Everything looks yummy! I like to eat my apples with peanut butter. So good! Hope you have a nice weekend :)

White Weathered Hutch, said...

Yes I love the sharp taste
and crispness!!
They are also great for decorating with and do you remember little apple people that were baked out of granny smith apples. They came out looking like rinkley seniors...

Rian said...

I think I'll place an order too! Your picture of the chicken salad plate looks delicious. We also use apples and sometimes grapes in our chicken salad and vary pecans with walnuts on occasion.

As for being silly, my opinion is that everyone is a little 'weird' and its that 'weirdness' that makes them more interesting and fun. My son used to say "My mom is weird, she loves 'rocks'!" ... and I do.

MyJourneyBack said...

I am on my way save me a bite! A lovely plate. Thanks for sharing. You always Bless my morning.
Have a wonderful day,
Sherry

thea said...

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

Those apples are such a pretty color BJ. I love chicken salad!

W. Latane Barton said...

boy, there for a minute I thought you were full of magic getting those apples to stack that high and not topple over. Just goes to show you that you should read as well as look, right?

On Crooked Creek said...

Jeanne said...

Hi bj, I gotta laugh because Granny Smith apples are my fave. I love the tartness of them. Don't bother giving me a red delicious apple. I do not like them at all. Your chicken salad looks good enough to eat. Smile.

Love, Jeanne

Donna said...

That looks SO good! I just had Cape Cod Chicken Salad the other night ... mm mm good!!!... Donna

Beverly said...

I have had a good Granny Smith kind of day. And, you always make my day.♥

The only thing better than looking at the lovely colour of a Granny Smith is eating it!

Hi BJness. I love apples and Honey Crisps are my favs. But can't can't them anymore. Now what have I missed? You've changed your blog name? I've been so busy here lately and haven't visited like I would like to.
Be a sweetie,

Teresa said...

They are my daughter's favorite and one day we went for a weekend out and when arriving to the Hotel she let go a "OMG" so loud that people - and us - turned to see what the comotion was about.

There, in the lobby of the Hotel, there were huge - gigantic - two topiaries filled with Granny Smith... the poor dear must've thought she was in Heaven ahahahah

Wishing you a Happy and Fun week,
Teresa
