You're too kind. I couldn't even get my daughter to do that for FREE.

Last night, we had dinner at Cover 3 in Austin and just shared a bunch of appies. One was a shrimp and crab tower layered with avocado and pico de gallo, served with a mixed green salad and vinaigrette. It was colorful and delicious.

Ah, so I'm going to guess your daughter isn't a "theatre person". It's not for money, it's all about the applause.

Crispy bacon dipped in and covered in dark chocolate. Drizzld with white chocolate design.

Addie,

You may be on to something!

I'm thinking more like a bacon turtle!

Bacon, caramel and milk chocolate.

Steve will make us eat in the kitchen and do the dishes!

I need my eyes checked. When I first read this, I thought you said you just shared a bunch of APPLES.

Well, of course. Shrimp and crab apples are amazing. Can't believe you've never had one.

Here's GG and friends at a nice restaurant, and they share a bunch of apples. Then I read the rest of the post!

Love doing the appie (not apple) thing, a great way to get a taste of everything.

Which brings us back to Steve's menu.

Not my original idea. Place in NY makes them. I just added the white chocoate. You have to make sure the bacon is crispy and cold before dipping.
