Yeah, we don't need no stinking bananas up in here. Actually we have banana soft serve for dinner tonight so, that's a lie.
For dinner though I was planning on just roasting some carrots to go with baked chicken and spinach. After our grocery excursion today, however, we had some delicious looking honeycrisp apples. As I was holding a carrot I saw them and a light bulb went on. I peeled the carrots right quick, then cored the apple and cut it into eighths. I only used one apple but that was a big mistake, I would suggest at least 3.
From there I placed the carrots and apple pieces on a baking sheet, drizzled olive oil over them, then gave a liberal sprinkling of chili powder and cinnamon. I figured one goes with the veggies, one goes with the fruit, why not just try both? I let these cook in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour.
I have a confession, I've never baked apples before. I've made an apple pie, but never just baked an apple. I have been seriously missing out! I am already thinking of what other things I can try with baked apples. I'll keep y'all posted!
