The challenge this week from Charli Mills is to write about a snack. This piece of flash fiction is based on a true story. I made an apple pie… and this is more, or less what happened…
A Culinary Faux Pas
Vanessa cut the homemade apple pie into dainty, perfect slices.
Rich smiled as he popped one in his mouth. “Did you make the pastry yourself?”
“It’s crumbly. And different. A magic ingredient?”
“Cinnamon and lemon rind.”
“Oh, from unwaxed lemons?”
Vanessa swallowed. “I, Oh dear!”
Rich picked up the melted candle on the table. “So, we’re eating cordon bleu Apple Pie Snacks flavoured with cinnamon and hot wax?”
“It seems so… Aren’t they delicious! ”

A cute story!!
Lol. Thank you Darlene. That’ll teach me!
Oh dear, Marje. I used our own lemons once to makes lemon meringue pie and it was so bitter. That was bad enough!
We all make these faux pas Robbie. Lol. Next time I’ll buy the lemons myself!
Oops! Haha 😉 Sweet story
