Total Cop Out

Greetings. I hope you all enjoyed Denise's birthday as much as I did. As you can tell, there is no MISSION: Monday today. We will return to our regularly scheduled super-sleuthing next week, with a big announcement and three more fab blogs. 

But don't worry, I am not leaving you empty handed. Here is the easiest recipe in the world that is sure to please, well, my kids. I think others will like it, but they are the only people whom I have personally witnessed demanding and devouring it. 

Easy Apple Crisp

1 stick butter (softened)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar

mix above ingredients until crumbly

peel and slice 6 apples (I use Gala) in a baking dish

sprinkle mixture evenly over apples & top with cinnamon

bake @ 350 degrees for ~40 minutes (until golden brown)

eat with or without vanilla ice cream

milk is a must
refrigerate leftovers as they make a wonderful breakfast the next morning 
(I like it cold)

Yummy - I so needed something to replace the pumpkin pie. Thanks my love.

And lucky me - the only thing left in my fridge is, hey! butter, sugar and apples. Oh wait, a half a bottle of white wine.

Maybe I'll make Flaming Apple Crisp.

Before I found out I had diabetes, I would core Gala apples and fill them with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins, put them in a glass topped bowl and nuke'em till soft and all Hmmmmmmmmmm.

damn diabetes.
