easy peasy apple crisp

Okay, okay, so this wasn't exactly "easy peasy" for me. I think I said three bad words when all of my chopped apples went rolling from the counter to the dirty floor and one bad word when I forgot about the butter in the microwave. However, I think most would agree that this is a pretty simple recipe for most people out there. And when I get more than one request to do something, I do it. No questions asked. So for those of you who wanted this recipe ... here you go. If you make it, please refrain from telling me just how easy peasy it was for you. I am still over here pretending like I created a masterpiece. 

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter (melted)
3 cups apples (peeled and chopped)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease 8-inch square pan. Mix together oats, brown sugar, flour and melted butter in large bowl. Place half of oat mixture in pan. Spread apples evenly over mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Top with remaining oat mixture and a final sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown.


"uh oh"

Sorry, Sherm.
I'll get you some more water.
And maybe a different brother too. ;)

Oh and don't ask where Porter's other sock went.
Or his pants.
I have absolutely no idea.

Stereotypical Monday morning right here.


cute nose contest

I think Sherm wins.
No wait, Porter. Definitely Porter.
Oh goodness, I give up. It's a tie.


just like mama

This kid is currently cutting four new teeth. 
And he has been letting us know about it.

Biting? Check.
Irritability? Check.
Wakefulness? If you call 20 minute naps and 4am wake-up calls "wakefulness"
why then yes ...

However, give the kid a tray of food and he's a happy camper.
Just like mama. 

We're off to the grocery store.

yesterday I ...

Made apple crisp.
Took out the compost.
Hung the diapers out to dry.
Watered the flowers.

Next thing you know I'll be sewing Poter's Halloween costume by hand.
I'm kidding. 
I don't even know how to sew on a button.

However, can we talk about that apple crisp? 
I think I need to devote an entire post to that soon.
Dan came home from work and immediately asked if I was pregnant.
I'm pretty sure the last time he saw me near an oven I was five months pregnant with Porter.

But don't worry, I'm not pregnant. 
I'm just really really really excited for fall.
Pregnancy and colder weather make me do crazy things.
