Apple Pie Crisp and Happy Thanksgiving

This is Thanksgiving week and so busy. Last week was our Grandsons 16th birthday and today is our youngest Granddaughters 6th birthday. Time flies so quickly when you have kids and grandkids. 

Yesterday I baked an apple pie crisp for dinner dessert. Our family loves it and I wanted to share the recipe. It is not too sweet and not gooey like some. You will only taste the sugar in the crisp part. 

It is so easy to make, just peel and cup the apples up and put them in a greased pie plate and sprinkle the crisp over them. The recipe is below.

         Here it is out of the oven and boy I wished you could smell this.

    Apple Pie Crisp

    4 medium tart cooking apples about 4 cups
    2/3 cup of brown sugar
    1/2 cup of all purpose flour
    1/2 cup of old fashion oats
    1/3 cup of butter soften
    3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    3/4 tsp ground nutmeg

   Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of pan. Arrange apples in pan. Mix rest of ingredients and  sprinkle over apples. Bake  about 30 minutes and serve warm.

I hope you all have a Wonderful and Safe Thanksgiving.

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves, Help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The weekend was alitlle warm so we decided to clean up the back yard. Now the leaves you will see is not from our tree. In fact we do not have a tree in the back yard. The leaves are from our neighbors tree and it is a pecan tree. When the leaves fall from this tree it does it in a matter of a few days.

      This is all for just one day. I did get alot done before the leaves fell. Clean up a spot for our veggie garden for next year and clean up beside the wood fence. We want to clean it up next year and stain it. I still needed to get a couple of garden decor up, but the leaves started to fall.


     Here is a close up of the leaves, but you still may not believe how many there is right now.

     I usually mulch the leaves with my lawnmower, but Hubby wanted to use his new toy. I hate it, but what can you do when your Hubby really wants something.

     He has them in a pile now and what do we do with them now. Calling all kids come and jump in.
