INGREDIENTS
 
1/4 cup butter
6 Golden Delicious apples. Peeled, slices, and cored
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (divided)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
4 cups packed JJ's day-old bread torn into 2 inch chunks
2 eggs, plus 2 egg yolks (room temp)
2 cups milk 
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp nutmeg
 
DIRECTIONS
 
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish (11 by 7 by 1 1/2 inches).
Cut the apples into 1/2-inch-thick slices. In a large bowl, mix together apples, lemon juice and cinnamon.
 
Melt butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the apple mixture and cook over same medium-high heat, stirring frequently until the apples are softened and begin to turn golden brown (10 to 15 minutes). Stir in the walnuts and put mixture in a bowl. Let cool.
 
While cooling, toast the bread on a baking sheet in the oven until crisp. Once the apple mixture is slightly cooled, gently spread half into the buttered baking dish. Add the toasted bread to the remaining apples in the bowl and stir. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish.
 
Combine the eggs, egg yolks, milk, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, vanilla and nutmeg and whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Then pour evenly over the apple and bread mixture and let it absorb the liquid.
Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until browned. CHOW DOWN.

Rockstar biker makes 1,000-mile trip

09/26/2014

This Rockstar from Fort Wayne, Indiana gives new meaning to “going the extra mile.” 

IMG_4900

JJ Bike Delivery Driver Eddie Ramos doesn’t own a car, but was still driven to participate in two marathons in Vermont. 

Wearing his JJ's swag, Eddie biked nearly 1,000 miles, (that’s about 100 each day), from Indiana to Vermont. The trip, which normally takes 13 hours by car, took him almost 2 weeks to complete.

As for fuel? Eddie dropped by a few JJ’s stores along the way.

Check out these pics from Eddie's trip:

Eddie's gotten tons of support and attention for pushin' the limit. Over $5,000 has been raised via an online campaign to help fund his trip, and the media has been all over his story. Check out this article and video from wane.com.

And one more thing...
