To make the lettuce wedges with blue cheese dressing, squeeze the juice from 1 large lemon into a bowl before stirring in 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1 cup of buttermilk, 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/2 tablespoon of onion powder and 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder. Fold in 6 ounces of crumbled blue cheese. Chill this dressing in an airtight container for a minimum of two hours.
Cut 2 heads of iceberg lettuce into quarters, and remove the lettuce cores. Cook 10 slices of bacon, and crumble them. Finely dice 1 tomato. Spoon the dressing over the lettuce wedges, and scatter the bacon and tomato on top, along with a sprinkling of pepper.
To prepare the apple dumplings, peel and core 2 Granny Smith apples. Cut each apple vertically into 8 slices. Immerse the apple slices in a bowl of water with the juice of 1 lemon. Combine 1 cup of water, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 stick of butter and 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a saucepan, and let the mixture come to a boil over moderate heat.
