Life gets busy doesn't it ?! You don't usually try to overwhelm yourself with things to do (at least I don't) but sometimes it happens. That's one reason why I'm thankful for apple crisp. It's one of those go-to desserts (dare I suggest breakfasts?) that only takes a little prep work, and comes out nearly perfect every time.
Another reason I'm thankful for apple crisp is because it has a short, inexpensive ingredient list. In this day of high food prices, it's nice to treat your family to a healthy dessert that won't break the budget.
Today I'm especially grateful for Arlene, who made us apple crisp for dinner with a $0.99 bag of mark-down apples. The trusty apple peeler-corer-slicer took care of the few blemishes, and now dessert is ready early (and we can take a quick trip to the library) ! The total cost ? Less than $2!
