Apples and Apps

Happy Wednesday!  Its grey and drizzly – but still a nice day here…how about in your neck of the woods?  I can’t believe I didn’t get a post up on Monday.  I was doing so well at posting regularly – Mon., Wed. and Fri. – and then, all day went by this past Monday, and I never got to the computer.  At least, not to post…I do enjoy reading everyone’s posts, though.  Fall always seems to bring a new energy to life…and everyone is busy with so many interesting hobbies, tasks, trips and such!

I had a fun weekend away this past weekend – I’m waiting on pictures in order to post about it.  No, Rose, I have yet to find my camera (boo) but hurray for phones!  Goodness, some cell phones take better pictures than my (missing) digital camera!  My girlfriend was our official picture taker this weekend, which means the pictures will be much better than if I had been the appointed one…but I have to wait.

Speaking of phones (and I’m so on a rabbit trail here)…I heard there will soon be an app for your phone that will allow you to go in the grocery store….get your items….pay through your phone app….and done!  Not even a need for a cash register.  So bizarre to me.  Actually the whole app explosion is way beyond me!!  Way beyond.

So – how many apps do you have downloaded on your phone??

In other news……I’m just sharing a recipe today.  I have been on apple overload.  Honestly, I have enjoyed searching/reading/drooling over recipes online as much (almost) more than actually eating the tasty treats.  But that is just me.  And I’m just about appled-out!!  Time to think pumpkin (and a little less sugar!)

This apple crisp was rather tasty but quite sweet.  Would be nice for dessert if company was comin’ – that way not too much leftovers….just one yummy helping would be satisfying enough.  After this crisp, I plan to make an apple cake today and, then, the apples should be done.  Would not have minded more applesauce but….

It is what it isSmile

So, today’s apple crisp:

 

1 quart peeled, cored, sliced apples

3/4 cup sugar (would so try Splenda)

1 tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all together and pour into a lightly greased baking pan.

 

3/4 cup oatmeal

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Mix all together and sprinkle evenly over the apple slices.  Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.  Enjoy

    Happy Wednesday to you, too, my friend!
    The gray, drizzle and rain have finally come to a (short)stop here ~ at least until the weekend! I will have to take advantage of this repreave and get some of the last outdoor chores done!
    Sorry you have lost your camera.
    :~{ That would be a real bummer! Almost as bad as these crazy computer issues I have been having. I'm expecting it to go anyday now ~ my virus protection won't load and has messed up everything. I am a true internet addict and I am in withdrawl!
    All this app stuff has me confounded! I hardly know how to use a cell phone! We only have a Trac phone that we rarely use. It doesn't have any bells and whistles. It I tried to use it to 'check my gorceries' you'd have to come bail me out of the clink!
    ;~P Why, I hardly know how to retreave my messages!
    Oh, well. I'll stick with the App(le)s! Much more satisfying to me!
    Thanks for sharing your recipe!
    Blessings!

  2. Hey there, Jennifer!
    We had rain here all day long yesterday...thankfully, the sun is trying to shine today! Of course, we needed the rain, so I really can't complain.

    Your apple crisp recipe sounds like something we'd all enjoy...especially this time of year!

  3. Hello! Well it is sunny AND hot here today...It's not suppose to last more than a couple of days which I am glad about as I am soo done with HOT weather...It has been being just gorgeous! Sorry to hear about your camera...I REALLY want a new one over here...maybe I should just "lose" mine, haha. (jk) The recipe sounds wonderful...I soo love apple anything, but especially a crisp. I love pumpkin even more. This is my hardest time of year to stick to the diet, cuz all I want to do is bake and then of course EAT!! : ( I am such a whiner. Hope all else is good with you. LOVE!!

  4. It's rainy and overcast here today! Do not have a phone where I can download anything! Well, maybe I can, I just don't know how and my daughter is now in Florida who would know if my phone does that! Anyway, that apple crisp looks really good. I love, love, love apple crisp and haven't made any in ages!!! Need to fix that soon! Enjoy your day!
