Not that I'm opposed to autumn, mind you. It's what follows that I'm not thrilled about. So for the moment, I'm choosing to live in denial and revel in the glories of fall.
And what better way than with food? I'm starting to get sick of salads and grilled chicken, anyway. So bring on the soups, the pot roasts and the ultimate of autumnal bliss... Apples!
What's not to love about a crunchy, juicy, sweet combination of yumminess that's good for your pocketbook and your waistline? Win, win, win. Here's my all-time favorite super easy Apple Crisp recipe that'll banish any thoughts of the coming winter.
BEST APPLE CRISP EVER
3 pounds apples
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1. Peel, core and chop apples. Place in a greased
8 x 8 pan.
2. Mix flour, sugar and butter, then crumble over the top of the apple mixture.
3. Bake at 350 until browned (approximately 45 minutes)
Dollop on a big spoonful of whipped cream, add in a mug of java or tea, then settle into a cozy chair near the fire. And while you're relaxing, don't forget to enjoy a good book. Might I suggest a rousing Viking adventure?
Yes, Vikings and apples go together. They did eat apples, usually of the crab apple variety, along with plums, wild strawberries, and cherries. Tropical fruit, however, was unknown to them.
