I like your apple and pepper choices. I'm not fond of rhubarb. For me: avocado toast, pear salad or peach cobbler, and ramen noodles.

A - Apple pancakes
P - Pizza
R - Rhubarb Cobbler

Not much into sweets but the Apple Crumble screams for the vanilla ice-cream I found (it must be over a year old, hope it´s still good).
Added to favs, thank you :-)
And stuffed peppers, it´s about time again, too!
A... Ananas. Oh, you call it pineapple. Avocado!!! Anything with that (if only we got good ones here!)
P... armesan... hmmmm
R ...aclette!!!
Now I´m hungry.
