Did you hear that recent study about comfort food fights loneliness?
So many of my food memories involve my mom and her recipes. There are certain tasks (peeling apples and frosting cupcakes) she didn’t enjoy but did for us kids.
I try to eat one apple, one orange and one carrot daily, but sometimes the apples aren’t tasty so I make apple crisp. The sugar negates the healthiness, but at least I’m not eating cookies and I think of my mom 🙂
6 cups apple — peeled and sliced
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
Place apples in 8×8 pan
Combine flour, oats, sugar and spices.
Cut in butter
cook 12 to 14 minutes on high in microwave or until apples are tender.
Does it get any easier? If your coworkers aren’t drooling over your apple crisp, I don’t know what to tell you.
