Time to Turnover a New… Apple

Sometimes National food days on my list are a bit ridiculous to me.  Like, why would a lollipop require a whole day dedicated to it when you’re going to get handed one tomorrow anyway when you drop your deposit at the bank?  Apple turnovers, however, I agree need their own day. Poor little guys! You know, once the donut hit, no one was talking turnover anymore.

Preparation of a legitimate turnover is basically the same as making an omlette, you’re just substituting the egg with dough and the cheese with fruit. I guess you could make a cheese popover if you really wanted one, but then it might be misconstrued a blintz. In fact, if we weren’t careful and simply defined a turnover as a pastry with filling, we’d become inundated with popovers throughout our whole munching week. Moonpies, fruit pies, chicken pockets, Twinkies, calzoes… what a mess! That’s why we really have to specify a turnover as a pastry that has been folded over a fruit filling in the fashion of an omelette.  After all, Taco Bell’s already pushing it serving those ridiculous cinnamon twists. We don’t need them putting a “Bean Popover Supreme” on the menu too.

When it comes to a popover, you’re basically always going to be talking apple. Sure there are homes around the world who are probably putting raspberries or bananas or something in there, but if you’re going to purchase one, you’re not getting the option. Truly, an apple popover just makes me wish I had a Dunkin Donut Apple Filled Cinnamon.  Mmmmmmm!

About Jim Clark

"If it was worth doing, then it is worth writing!" -- Jim Clark -- Someone else probably said that before, and I'm sure that each semester she starts her Creative Writing 101 class by writing it on the board, but I never took that lady's class so I am taking her quote! I work in the world of advertising, but I write for a living. Here in the second decade of the '00s, we find ourselves in a culture where virtually everyone writes for a living. With all the clicking and clacking on Facebook, Twitter, emails and texts, our lives are more than ever intertwined with writing. At the same time, it's also become increasingly more important to shorten our thoughts down to as few characters as possible. So, now, more than ever, I think it's also important to hold a place in our lives for expanding and honing our thoughts through writing. This is my place for that.
