So this past weekend with the help of Ms. Caboo I completed a 12 mile walk! Insert hysterical cheering *here*
According to my training plan I should be doing a 13 miler next. But I'm thinking, if I walk 13 miles, that's basically a half marathon. Would completing the Official Half Marathon be as sweet if I had already walked it? I think not. So I'm going to wait until the Official Half Marathon to complete my 13.something miles.
So what to talk about now? Apples. That's right, A-P-P-L-E-S. I seem to have developed a deep fascination for all things apples. I'm not sure why. I know Turtle loves apples & going to the apple orchard to pick our own will become a family tradition. (Going to a new one tomorrow -yay!) One of my favorite ways to consume apples is apple crisp. I have smashed together a few recipes to come up with one that really suits my family. As my darling DH says, the apples are just a delivery devise for the crisp :)
C-Joy's Apple Crisp
Preheat oven to 350
Chop 3 large Honeycrisp apples (skin on). Place in a 2 quart baking dish
Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, stir to coat
For topping, mix in a separate bowl:
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup sugar
cinnamon (to taste)
pinch of salt
Melt 1/2 cup butter, add to flour mixture and stir until incorporated (will be lumpy)
Sprinkle topping over apples
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
Serve warm & sit back to enjoy the adoration bestowed upon you by grateful recipients.
*Serving warm with vanilla ice cream may cause Dessert-induced Ecstasy.
