The recipe stated that I should start by peeling and slicing apples, and layering them in the baking dish. However, Momma poindexter didn't raise no fool! I know damn well that apples get all brown and gross if they sit around, due to the miracle of oxygen!
And so, I decided to start by mixing up the pile of spices and other spice-like ingredients that would be the first layer of things to go on top of the apples, so that I could work quickly once the apples were sliced! Clever or what?
Shortly after the Apple Crisp (featuring the ever popular quick oats, naturally) was complete, I had a visitor who said something crazy and crack addled about baked apples covered in cinnamon getting brown anyway, so what's the big deal?
I slapped him across the face, and said "No Apple Crisp for you! You come back, 1 Year!". And then glared at him as I consumed my apple crisp (with the extra yummy quick oats).
