Two posts in two days — that’s the magic of a guest blogger. =P I have two things to share with you today! First, guess what came in the mail this morning?! Here’s a hint:
Need another hint?
While Jordan made dinner, (tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches!) I assembled my new toy. Except I put one of the feet on upside down and had to have Jordan get it off and fix it. (Helpful tip: don’t use a hammer until you’re sure everything is right.)
I decided to name her, since I firmly believe all beloved objects need names. (Remember Fabian, Elan, Tarrou, and Garth?) Here’s Fantasia and me, hanging out like the best friends we will soon be:
After fawning over Fantasia, and finishing my fabulous grilled cheddar sandwich, I put together an apple crisp for Jordan and I to enjoy with coffee. (It’s Friday which means I can drink coffee at night if I want!)
First, I mixed 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup oats, and 1 cup brown sugar together with a fork.
Then I melted 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup) and stirred that into the oats until they got crumbly.
Next, I poured half the mixture into a greased casserole dish and patted it down a bit before starting to layer my apple slices over top. I used two medium/large apples. (I bought them at Gentile’s Market, the most adorable, well-priced local fruit market ever!) After all the apples were placed in the dish, I sprinkled the whole thing with cinnamon and sugar.
Finally, I poured the rest of the oat mixture on top and popped it in the oven.
It’ll be done baking in about ten minutes, at which point Jordan and I will enjoy it with a good book! (Might I recommend The Year She Fell by Alicia Rasley?)
Feel free to stop by and share some crisp! =D
