BBQ Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches | Fabtastic Eats My parents flew in last night! I’m so excited to have them here for another week! My brother has been here for a week, twice in the last month as well, it’s so great to see everyone. I don’t think we’ll be making it home for the holidays this year, so after this, we probably won’t get a chance to see anyone until next Spring, so I’m loving the constant flow of company!

Plus they’ll get to test out more of these fantastic apple recipes!

BBQ Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches | Fabtastic Eats Speaking of…today I’m giving you some savory apple greatness! It cant be all sugar all the time, plus there are so many incredible ways to enjoy apples, as well as plenty of other fruit without it always being breakfast or dessert!

And you want to try this! It’s slow cooked all day, which is my most favorite way to enjoy pork, in apple juice concentrate, sticky bbq sauce, and real apple slices, then shredded and topped with your favorite cheese, I used Havarti, and a crisp and refreshing apple slaw…all apple, ALL amazing!

BBQ Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches | Fabtastic Eats I made this when my brother was here, and he went back for a second, and I made HUGE ones! I pile them high, nobody likes bread without the goods! It’s sticky and mouthwatering and messy, and just the way a pulled pork sandwich should be!

They would also make great sliders! ;) Whether you make this for dinner one night, or a game day…this is a must try dish this Fall!

Apple Crisp Ice Cream

Caramelized Apples, and Oat Streusel all swirled into creamy, sweet, Cinnamon Ice Cream, make a perfect Apple Crisp Ice Cream!

Apple Crisp Ice Cream | Fabtastic Eats Annnnnnd #12daysofapples commences! I had to start with ice cream, I did. One because it’s still hot enough in most places to enjoy it, like heeeeree. Two, because this turned out even better than I imagined it would, so I want you to make it sooner rather than later. & three, just because I want to celebrate.

Apple Crisp Ice Cream | Fabtastic EatsI’m ready for Fall finally! yeppp…I was out for the count for about three days at the end of last week, so sick I couldn’t move off the couch, so sick my husband had to stay home from work to watch our kids, so sick, I ended up at the ER, just sooo sick. So when I finally snapped out of it on Sunday morning, I wanted to do alll the things Id been thinking about for three solid days while not being able to move a muscle.

I wanted to bake a bazillion fall things, so I did. I wanted to decorate with all my favorite fall colors, so I did. I wanted to go buy my favorite fall candle scents, so I did. On top of all that, we cleaned our house top to bottom because my parents are flying in tonight, and we watched a ton of Football.

It was a fantastic Sunday. And it ended with a big bowl of this apple crisp ice cream! (drizzled with caramel!! <—defffffinitely do that!)

Apple Crisp Ice Cream | Fabtastic Eats It’s literally like eating apple crisp topped with ice cream, but in reverse, and creamier. It’s so superb! So much flavor, and there’s REAL streusel in there, I swear I could just eat handfuls of that..but mixed with sweet cinnamon ice cream, I was all over that.

Don’t fret over the long list of steps, it’s really simple. You make the ice cream base and while it’s chilling you throw together the streusel in the food processor in about 2.5 minutes, and the caramelized apples in about ten. Super easy, and soooooo perfect for Fall!

Apple Crisp Ice Cream | Fabtastic Eats Don’t forget to drizzle with caramel if you have it..ahhmygod.
