Cranberry Sauce Apple Crisp

I made Cranberry Sauce for New Years.
My very first time making it from scratch, it was delish!

But, of course, I made too much.
I didn't have time to figure out what to do with it at that time
and didn't want to waste it,
 so I threw it into the freezer.

The other day I came across it...
sometimes my freezer turns into a black hole!
Does yours do that too?

Since we love all kinds of Fruit Crisps,
I thought I'd add it to my Apple Crisp recipe to use it up.
Fingers crossed..it worked!

4 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced (I used what I had and didn't peel)

1 1/2 cups whole berry cranberry sauce
1 cup flour)
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine, melted (butter if you prefer)

1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees 

2.Place apple slices in an 8 or 9 inch square baking dish. Spread the cranberry sauce over the apples. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the apples and cranberry sauce, covering completely.
3.Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until apples can be easily pierced with a knife and topping is browned.

Gathered all my supplies and got to town.

MMM It was so yummy!!
Will have to remember this for next year.

Garden Bon Bons

I'm linking with:

Cottage Garden Party at Etsy Cottage Style


Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time


All the fruit trees are ready to burst or are in bloom in the orchards
and in my backyard.


Cherry Plum


and while out counting I was able to catch a few photos
of some White Crowned Sparrows visiting my yard.

Now these are so cute.
I've never seen anything like them before.

My kiddos surprised me with them.

Seed balls made to look like a box of candy!
They're all different types of herbs.

Too cute!
Anxious to get them planted,
but even though we are having Springtime weather,
we are not into frost free mornings yet.
So I will have to wait a bit.

A Victorian Lady's Scrapbook Images

Scrapbooking is not a new phenomenon.
Women of the nineteenth century created scrapbooks for a variety of reasons: as a craft project, as a way to preserve letters or photos, and as a way to document a family history or special event.
Here are a few reproductions to enjoy and use.
