Yummy Apple Crisp

A few weeks ago I was in the mood for something fruity. So what better than to make an apple crisp.

I have been requested by a friend to post the recipe for it so that is exactly what I am going to do.


4-6 large apples (depending on how fruity you like it) I used 8 in the following photos
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup quick cooking oats
¾ teaspoon of cinnamon
1/3 cup of butter softened to room temperature

Preheat your oven to 375°.

While your oven is preheating, generously grease an 8x8" pan.

Mix together in a medium sized bowl the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, and butter until it is crumbly. I used 2 forks.



Set the mixture aside and begin working on your apples. Peel and core the apples and slice them thin. Try to get them all around the same thickness so they cook evenly. Put them into the greased baking dish:

Once you have finished with the apples sprinkle the crumbly mixture over the top evenly:

Bake for 30 minutes or until the apples are fork tender.

Here is what it looks like when done:

Best served warm with Vanilla Ice Cream! YUM!

It's a Guy Thing!

The last post I did consisted of things most girls do so I felt it fitting to post some guy things! Not all guys do the following but most do.

Its a guy thing to:

* Buy a thousand minutes a month of cell phone time but use on average 87 minutes.

* Go straight to the action or horror section in Blockbuster to pick out a movie that "both" will enjoy.

* Be willing to communicate but only on commercial breaks.

* Fall asleep in front of the TV while maintaining a death grip on the remote. (Bubba is totally guilty of this).

* Say "I love you" right before confession something stupid he has done.

* Manicure his nails with a pocket knife (Bubba is also guilty of this)

* Touching a 9 volt battery's terminal with his tongue to see if it still has a charge (Another thing Bubba is guilty of and tried to get our kids to do...No I am not kidding)

* Want a medal for all the menial tasks he performs around the house.

* Thinking he can judge the size of something by just looking at it, as in, "Yeah, looks like you need a five-sixteenths-inch drill bit (Bubba does this ALL. THE. TIME.)

So what does your guy do?

It's A Girl Thing

Men don't understand it, and women can't explain it....or don't want to. It's the thing a woman does or says that seems to have no logical interpretation or rational thought pattern. These items listed below are all girl things. That's all. Pure and simple. And no explanations will be given. After all, if you don't get must not be a girl.

These may not all apply to every girl who reads them as we are all different.

It's a Girl thing to....

* Spend hours in the pursuit of the proper eye shadow color to coordinate with your handbag, shoes and hose.

* Know all bathroom scales are off and never in her favor.

* Own 12 red lipsticks yet needing another one because all the others are the wrong shade.

* Have "strap" problems in public.

* Dislike a "Macho" man, except when a dead mouse needs to be taken to the garbage.

* Insist a guy participate in the losing game of "Do you notice anything different?"

* Cry the moment it becomes apparent you are losing the argument.

So...What GIRL thing do you do?
