How Do You Like Them Apples?

You might have noticed recently that I enlarged all the photos on my blog. In celebration of this very visual achievement I decided to do a very visual post.

These are the prettiest dang apples I've ever laid eyes on and they grew in my very own front yard! They range in size from small apricots to small McIntosh apples. I made Crab Apple Crisp with them and it was the tastiest apple crisp I've ever eaten.

If you lack a Crab Apple tree of your own or legal access to one I suggest you don a black mask straight away and shake down your neighbours tree.

Ah hem...

What I meant to say was you can use any sort of apples in place of crab apples.

I'll shut up now and let you enjoy the pretty pictures.


Food for Thought.

I take things personally. I try not to, but I can't help it.

If I discover that a person dislikes me I'll wrack my brain for the answer to their derision. I'm not the type of person to hate anyone so it's hard for me to understand why someone would point their hatred at me. This is especially annoying when I've done everything I can to be pleasant to someone. Some people just can't be pleased I guess.

I cry when I burn dinner.

I feel like a failure if I forgot to get something at the grocery store.

I mope around disconsolate and detached when Tastespotting declines my photos.

This might have something to do with being a perfectionist. It makes me my own worst enemy. If I expect perfection in all things then I'm just asking for disappointment. No one and nothing is ever perfect. It's hard to love the flaws. It's hard to turn failure into success.

But I'll try.

For now, here's some pretty darn close to perfect Apple Berry Crisp.
