when cats and dogs "HELP" and lazy apple pie
The wife is down at the salon 2 weeks ago getting the magic cut from Jackie and cracking up every minute because Jackie is FUNNY. I should know, I go to Jackie too...tomorrow!
SO, somebody comes into the salon with 3 huge boxes "my apple tree is going nuts this year! Have some apples!" and the wife is like "I can take home one or 2 apples for my husband" being polite and modest and Jackie is like "NO, really, TAKE ONE OR TWO BOXES". So the wife brings home a box full of, get this, 126 apples.
Alright, but you know me, I am making apple things every day, right? And I have used all but the last 11, which I plan to cook up Thursday. Lots of apple sauce and apple crisp for breakfast everyday, apple crisp for guests, and NOW? The wife tells me she wants to make a pie. But, well, everybody is busy and I say "hey, lookit this recipe (click here!), it is apple crisp with topping over and UNDER the apples" and the wife admits "as long as there is something under the apples, it is like pie!"
and I respond "sort of like lazy apple pie, right? Takes ten minutes not ALL DAY" and it IS brilliant and delicious. Today I am going through my recipes (really!) and getting rid of my other apple crisp recipes. The brilliance of this recipe is that the apples make juice, right? When they bake? The lower layer soaks that up while the top gets crisp MMMMMMMMM :)
(disclaimer: it is NOT like apple pie, but it is delicious!)
In other news, I was making cat and dog cups in the studio and I must NOT have latched the door correctly because those who are not allowed in the studio...came in and made themselves comfortable....
