Apple Crisp

My regular scheduled grocery shopping day is a few days away and this weekend my husband and I were craving something sweet. He offered to make his potato candy, but that would have been just a quick fix. I wanted something that would last until I could get to the store this week. So, first I looked through our pantry to see what I had that would make a great dessert.

I usually try to keep something in there to make in an emergency. Mostly, I do this in the winter when there's always a chance of getting snowed in for a few days. Today, I found a large can of peaches in there and I do make a really good peach cobbler, so that was my first option. Then, I decided to look through my recipes for an idea and that's when I found my Apple Crisp recipe.

This is perfect because I have a bag of apples that I need to use before they go bad. So, Apple Crisp it is. Below is my recipe. I only wish I had some ice cream to go with it.

Apple Crisp
3 c. of sliced apples
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1 c. water

Place apples in a buttered baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 c. brown sugar and add water. Mix together the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well blended. Sprinkle over the apples and dot with butter or margarine. Bake at 350° f. for 30-35 minutes or until the apples are tender. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Mini Meatloaf

I will be the first to tell you that I do not like meatloaf. However, this meatloaf is one that I do like and want to share it with you. Although it is not your normal recipe, if you have someone like me who doesn't care for meatloaf this might just fit their picky eating habits.

Mini Meatloaf

1 pound lean ground beef
1 box Stovetop Stuffing mix
1 T. garlic powder
3/4 c. barbecue sauce
3/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. water

Preheat oven to 375° f. Mix together the ground beef, stuffing mix, water, and garlic power until well blended. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and press the meat mixture into each cup. With a small spoon, make an indentation on top of each mini loaf and fill with the BBQ sauce. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the tops with the shredded cheese and bake for 5 minutes more minutes or until the cheese has melted.
