Today has been a long day. I sometimes wish I had Sundays off. I can think of many more interesting things to do than go to work. I am sure we all can. Oh well, some day I will have my dream schedule. Until then, I will just keep truckin' along.
Summer is in full swing and I am in love with all of the fresh fruit and veggies that are available in the stores. There are so many things to choose from including fresh berries and many different varieties of apples. My hubby loves green apples and encouraged me, rather strenuously, to make some kind of dessert using these fruit. I thought about it long and hard and wanted to make a apple pie but I ran short in time and instead settled for making an apple crisp.
