Brrrrrr….it's cold outside!& Today's Recipe

Well, cold for around here and this time of year. It is 58 and the wind is blowing. I LOVE cold weather. LOVE IT. Granted we don’t actually have cold weather here. But this cooling off makes me feel so much better.

So I opened our refrigerator door this morning and my blood pressure went up considerable. I hate our refrigerator. It is held together with duct tape. I am not kidding. And the meat drawer fell off. So when Husband called I said “So…how mad would you be if you came home to a new refrigerator?” He assured me I would not be replaced because of it. Which was really all I needed to hear. So off I went. My new side by side will be delivered in the morning!

And now for today’s recipe:

Apple Cranberry Crisp

4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices.

1 cup fresh cranberries

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup oats

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/3 cup soft butter

Preheat oven to 375. Butter a square baking dish. Place apple slices and cranberries in the dish. Mix remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over fruit. Bake 30 minutes. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream or cold with whipped cream.
