We read it together. I did not tell him what I had written till after the fact. When I opened the computer quite late in the morning I was happy the nice comments were there.
Later DH was really hurting, face, hip and upset stomach from so many meds. I suggested he just go back to bed. I put on some music and did just a little cleaning. I noticed my fruit bowls were still very full so I stopped the cleaning to make DH microwave apple crisps. I usually make them twice a week I rarely eat them and so they are his alone. I had apples and pears looking sad in the bowl so I mixed them together to make 2 crisps. I added craisins, he likes them in there and they are very nutritious so in they go. I usually use raisins. It takes me less than 10 minutes to prep fruit for the bottom.
I only use fruit, NO SUGAR OR SWEETENER. A sprinkle of cinnamon adds flavor and a few drops of lemon juice keeps the fruit white. I know cinnamon will make it the same color but believe me seeing the white apples makes it look nicer. The top is just Flour, oats and I tablespoon of brown sugar. I use Canola oil not butter and we love it.
I prefer to grind quick or old fashioned oats to make this recipe instead of AP Flour.
To make the topping crisp up in the microwave I add 2 tablespoon of apple juice unsweetened of course.
By the time DH woke up the Crisps were cooling on the counter and the kitchen smelled of cinnamon and Apple.
I made him some Tea and that was his breakfast.
I had been prescribed an inhaler on Thursday I finally got one today and it really helps when the temperatures are so low. I carry it everywhere with me and I use it when I need to. As soon as I can stop the coughing, wheezing and looking like my face will burst I will try to do some outside walking.
DH and I go to the HIP SURGERY class on Monday and the PA will evaluate the situation it might mean more blood work or not.
We will check on the weather and if there is no storm brewing we will drive to Portland and look at the hotel where we intend to stay before and after the surgery. Our class is after Dark and the interstate goes through the wooded areas. I am hoping if the hotel is nice, reasonable rates we will book a room for one night because I have an appointment in Portland at 8.45 am at the Spine Clinic. That really makes a good plan.
I have to tell anyone who wants that recipe I will copy and paste it in a GOODIE, just ask.
I WILL NOT spend forever using the calculator and ending up with a recipe posted out there. I always manage to let that happen. I do look at recipes here and I am very unhappy with highly negative criticism so I will send it to you rather than be negatively criticized. I hope you all understand that. Thanks, HUG Pat in Maine.
