Easy Apple Crisp Recipe: Make something Monday


Do you  find it challenging to keep fresh fruit in your fridge in the winter time??  Me too!!
It's not that it's not available.. Grocery stores have a beautiful display of fresh fruits and veggies. BUT it just isn't as tempting as 'In-season' fruits and veggies..  Fruits and veggies just look so much more tempting on a farmers market table with the grower smiling over them, or even better warm from the sun a directly from your own garden or a pick-your-own field.

So When I do Buy fresh fruits:  Grapes???? my family eats them like candy and they are gone in 1 day, Strawberries are gone with in hours. Bananas last for a few days.. however,  ... APPLES.... they are inexpensive, last for weeks and make the perfect snack!!  Until about January then everyone gets tired of them and it takes me a couple grocery trips to realize that my apples are piling up and I have a whole bunch of wrinkly apples on hand!

That's when I make this super EASY APPLE CRISP!!!

2 Quarts sliced or diced apples, approx 8-10 apples
1 cup white sugar
3 TBS flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
Mix these 5 ingredients together and put in greased 9x13 pan

Topping:
3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
mix together until crumbly, put on top of apple mixture.
Bake at 350 for approx 40 min, or until it looks slightly toasted over the top.



this is a great recipe to let your little ones get hands on with because if the need to sample it all you don't need to worry about raw eggs!




On my To-DO list for this week is to get these photos of my Daughters turned in to Valentines day Cards!
I will put some Valentine words on them using my Creative Memories software and then when I get them printed we will cut a slit above and below her fist and insert a lollipop.



Staci's will say 'I will be your friend "NOW AND LATER".

With the "Now and Later" being the candy double-stick taped onto her hand!
