Our day today

This morning when I went to get a load out of the dryer they were all still wet. I ran the dryer again, but quickly stopped it, because it was smelling like burning plastic. I am well aware of fires that have started, so I decided not to take any chances. The service guy is able to come on Monday. That seems like forever away to me! Every day I do at least one load, but sometimes two or even three. Yet, Enoch always manages to run out of undershirts and I am always scrambling for kids clothes. I'm not a clothes line drying kind of person, so I came up with a different solution. I'm drying the clothes in our bedroom. It's been kind of dry in there at night and I think I can dry a load a day up there. That will put the much needed moisture into the air!

This afternoon Tabitha finally got a chance to use her cookbook. She made apple crisp (with a little help, of course). It was so yummy! The kids and I just gobbled it up. We halved the recipe and omitted the walnuts, so Patricia could also enjoy it (besides, we didn't have any in the house). Here's the recipe (it's super easy, thus kid friendly):

  • 4 medium peeled, cooking apples sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Spread the apple slices in an ungreased 8"square pan.

3. Mix remaining ingredients with a fork; sprinkle over apples.

4. Bake uncovered until the topping is golden brown and apples are tender, about 30 minutes.
Makes 6 servings.

Last but not least, Patricia turned 10 months old today!!!

Verse for thought: "Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!" Psalm 144:15

yeah Tabitha! Following in mom's footsteps with yummy foods. Next time we're together, she'll have to cook something for us! :) And I was just telling Willik that he needs to help me more in the kitchen, cause girls like boys that know how to cook!
