My day began with the biannual ritual of laying to rest an entire semester’s worth of classes. After organizing/pitching all my files and papers, the upcoming holiday beckoned me out into the dreary weather to make some progress in my Christmas shopping.
My day ended with something yummy: baked apples. Try them out for yourself. They are very simple, delicious, cheap, and healthy as far as desserts go. Sounds like my kind of food.
A recipe in pictures:
|Take some apples.|
|mmm...apples. Heat the oven to 350.|
|Core them. (To me, "core" is a fancy word for getting a knife and |
removing some of the insides. I don't know if that's right)
|Get sugar (brown or white) and butter.|
|Put a little bit of sugar in the apples.|
Then a small pad of butter.
Then pack in more sugar until they are full.
|Put about 1/2 cup of water in the dish and seal it shut with a lid or with aluminum foil.|
Bake for 20 minutes covered and then 20 more uncovered.
|Mmm... a great end to a dreary winter day.|
Two for me, one for my husband!
