Just Desserts

Good evening, Kitschies!  It's Wednesday - and the afternoon lasted forever.  It was staff meeting day at the clinic and this one went a little better than usual (I have an opinion as to why, but I'll keep that to myself).  I'm just not feeling it much tonight, so this post probably won't be very wordy.

A couple weeks ago, we had a cold snap.  And during one of those cold days, I was home with the boys.  What do I do when it's cold out and the boys are asleep?  I make a yummy dessert.  I got this recipe years ago, but I have no idea where it's from.  I'm sure it's not the most original recipe out there, but I like it!  I prefer baked apple crisp, but this is good for a fix it and forget it recipe.

Apple (Not So) Crisp
6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup butter, softened

Grease slow cooker.  Place apples in the bottom of the slow cooker.  In a separate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, spices and butter.  Cover the apples with the mixture, pressing down.  Cook on high 3-4 hours.

NOTES:  I don't usually grease the slow cooker, but there's so little liquid in this recipe that it really is a necessity.  Love this recipe.

I used Golden Delicious apples this time, but have used others in the past.  I think Golden Delicious apples are great for cooking - they're sweet and a little soft.
 This is a horrible picture of the end result.  I guess you're going to have to trust me that it tastes delish!  It's especially good over cinnamon ice cream.  Mmmmm!

On a side hubs had me look this video up on You Tube.  This should give you some insight of how the mind of my hubs works.

I asked him why he had me watch this video.  He said "because it's cool".  Yeah.  Apparently we have a difference of opinion on the definition of cool.  Well, there's two and a half minutes of my life I'll never get back.  LOL  Seriously, though.  I do love my hubs and I find it interesting to see/hear/read what he thinks is cool.

Good night my readers.  I hope you have pleasant dreams.  OH!  I had somebody ask if I'd do a water marbling tutorial.  I think I might just try it.  I haven't had 100% success with water marbling, but the two that did turn out were awesome.

Okay, so here's an un-necessary insight into me. I thought that was rather entertaining. More so cuz I wondered if it was serious or mocking and because the song sounds like a kid's story. And if it was serious...well, okay those outfits/sideburns/dance moves were just so HOT (LMFAO) or if its mocking...then its really funny. Ya, I'm easily entertained by the weird and unusual.

Oddly I find warm fruit offensive, but Husband loves all things apple pie related. I think I'll have to give this one a try for him!
