For the past couple of days I've been....not my self. haha. Actually, I've been kind of cranky. Work is weighing heavily on my brain, I haven't been spending much time with the love, I have a show coming up that makes me shrink into a loathsome pool of worry. After cups of tea, reading a book and kissing the face of that pretty boy, I'm feeling quite better.
Oh, and this.
Yep, that's apple crisp. But not the kind you'd normally find on my mom's table after Sunday dinner. This actually turns into a big bowl of oatmeal with juicy chunks of apple and enough cinnamon to make you think of Thanksgiving dinner. Oh, and it has healthy things. Like apples and oats and whole wheat flour. I think I'm just making a case for its healthiness because I ate the whole bowl. But I cut way back on the sugar and butter and it was warm. And now I'm happy. Kisses, crafting and Apple Crisp. Today is a total ten.
Oh. are you hungry now? Here's the recipe.
Apple Crisp a la Laura
2 apples cored, peeled and sliced. Keep them chunky.
a sprinkle of sugar. Maybe two teaspoons.
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
Put all this in a microwave save bowl and stir to coat.
2 cups oats. (I use the have to cook them kind. They are nutty and fabulous and I like that I can buy them in the bulk section. Who doesn't love a good bulk section of the market?)
3 TBS butter, cold.
2 tsp cinnamon.
3 TBS brown sugar
3 TBS whole wheat flour
Mix it all together with your fingers until it looks crumbly. Then spread it over your apples in your bowl. Into the microwave for ten minutes. When it comes out it will be bubbly and gooey and so good that you'll have to smile. Enjoy!
