Apple Crisp and a Halloween Sneak Peek...

Hello October!!
Ok, so I'm not a fan of fall like the rest of ya, but I do LOVE apple crisp (which is a fall thing, right?!).
I made a recipe a while back that frankly, SUCKED!  So I googled apple crisp and came up with one that had over 2,000 positive reviews and guess what?
They were right!
So, here it is:
(one side note, I am not so much of a sweet person and this is freakin' SWEET! I cut my white sugar to 3/4 cup and when I make it again, I'll cut it to 1/2...FYI)
Apple Crisp II
by Diane Kester
Preheat over to 350
In a 9X13 pan:
put in 10 cups of apples (I like green granny smith).  mix 1 cup white sugar, 1 TBS flour, 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples.  Pour 1/2 cup water evenly over this.
In another bowl combine:
1 cup quick cooking oats, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 tsp baking power, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 cup melted butter.  Mix together then sprinkle over the top of the apples mixture.
Bake at 350 for about 45 min.
Mmmmm, not only tastes great, your home will smell FABULOUS!
Let me know what you think!!
PS: she suggested serving it with rum raisin ice cream or a BIG dollop of freshly whipped cream... Ok, anyone that knows me KNOWS that is over the TOP for me!!  But if you like all the extras, GO FOR IT!
IF you don't know me, I am the most plain/bored with food eater ever.  My cousin use to say she hated to go places with me because I always forgot to eat.  "No, I don't want sauce on it, I don't want extra gravy, and I don't want you to add_____."
I eat healthy, I eat to live, I don't live to eat, but...
Warm Apple Crisp steals  my ❤ just a little!
Has anyone started decorating for Halloween?!
I've never been a big fan, but now that I have a child...
Remember this guy?
and these guys?! I did the glitter skull tutorial last Oct- anyone give it a try?
They survived pretty well in plastic bags, missing a bit of glitter, but just a bit...
 Ok, how weird is my wall color in these pics?!  Speaking of pictures...
Canon is sending me some software so maybe now I can connect big girl camera to my mac?!
and... guess who just got PHOTOSHOP!!!???
Yeah, don't get all excited it could take me years to learn it.  I sat last night staring at the screen like a deer into oncoming traffic!!  IF you know of some good online photoshop tutorials, Please share!!
Ok, off to JoAnns cause I ran out of yarn less than 100 stitches from the end of Darlings newsboy/girl hat...well, of course I did!!!!
Have a fabulous weekend and make some apple crisp!
Baby Hat donation deadline coming SOON...Oct 31st!
**Info posted on the weekends for you newbies!**

I think Pier One stole your glitter skull idea! You should sue. I was just there and there was a lot of glitter for Halloween, which I am normally not a huge fan of because glitter always seems to get on my hands and then my nose and then I itch and sneeze and have to ponder why glitter doesn't stick better. All that to say that I like your glitter heads way better than Pier One's. Although I did get my fabulous owl there and am very excited about that $65 that better work out for the best.

Mel: if I sue pier 1, I'm pretty sure Martha S. will come after me, 'cause that's where i got "MY" idea.... I've missed you!

I'm afraid to even start photoshop because i know it will suck HOURS out of my already "do nothing" days....
