    Default Here's a nice dessert

    I remember back in my youth, my mom would make bread and after dinner she would cut slices about 1/4 inch thick, she would butter each slice on one side, she would then, line one slice of bread with cheddar cheese and in the middle would be a mixture of stewed apples mixed with cinnamon and raisins then, fry it like a toasted cheese sandwich. Mmmmmm! Mmmmmm! Good. The good ole days.

    Thumbs up apple pie & cheddar

    Ah yes, the good old days when apple pie was served warm with a nice big old piece of melted extra sharp cheddar on top.

    Sounds good to me.

    Default Sure does

    I still try to cook and bake things that I remember my mom doing. I remember one thing in paticular that she would fry up for meals was Scrapple. I actually liked it. But, can't seem to find it anywhere in Alaska.

    I had some last night but, as much as I hated to, I used a can of apple pie stuff. It wasn't all that bad though.

    If Leroy's doesn't have it, I know the commissary on Elmendorf carries it. My ex father-in-law (who was raised in New Jersey, retired from the AF and is a Scrapple addict) badgered them long enough until they started carrying it regularily. It's in the end of the freezer section.

    Good luck .

    If your going to the VA, leave Elmendorf by the Government hill gate. I believe that turns into C street. It will be on the right a few blocks before B&J's commercial.

    Edit-

    Google maps says:

    2420 C street, right before Fireweed.
    Finally, Brad Childress is GONE!

    I know where you are talking about. For some reason I thought you were talking about a store. I've been to Leroy's a few times. I found a sight on the internet to buy it but, they wanted $75 for 3 lbs. Yikes!

    I think Red Apple in Mountain View has scrapple. My husband is from Maryland and always talks about scrapple. I have yet to try it. Don't know if I would do Leroy's though. Everyone said their biscuts and gravy was good. Went there,tasted it, and would never eat it there again. Tasted like chicken gravy. Kinda like potato salad...would never eat anyones elses but my own.
    The only thing worse than a Subaru is the as*hole who drives it.
