Uses for mealy apples?

A week ago, I bought a bag of apples from my local grocer's, and they were delicious-crisp with the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
Yesterday I was shopping and bought the same kind, assuming the store had gotten a fresh shipment of them. Nope, I was wrong. They still taste good, but are waaay to mealy for me to enjoy eating them out of hand. My only idea thus far is to make applesauce, but I have nearly 3lbs of apples and live alone-I'm not sure I can eat that much applesauce by myself!

Long story short, I'm looking for tips/tricks/recipes for what I can do with all these mealy apples. Any ideas, serious eaters?
