Backyard Dinner With My Baby and A Recipe For You!

I am planning on having a backyard dinner with Brian tonight after we put the kids to bed. I am making a very yummy man dinner that includes flank steak, potatoes, salad and a yummy berry, apricot and apple crisp.

We will be celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary at the end of the month and it will be the first year we haven't gone away for the weekend leading up to it. There are about 12 reasons why it just won't work this year. So I thought maybe we could just celebrate throughout the month with some quiet dinners at home and maybe some romantic house remodeling together:) I think we are also planning on a nice dinner at a restaurant in town that I have been wanting to go to, but that will wait until our actual anniversary.

But the part of the post you are interested in is coming...the recipe.

It is my foolproof crisp recipe.

Angry Blueberry's Foolproof Crisp

1 cup quartered Strawberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1 cup apple roughly chopped
1/2 cup sliced re-hydrated apricots
I just soak mine in boiling water for 10-15 minutes
Mix these together
Make Sure You Spray Your 8x8 Really Well This Will Help You With Clean Up.
Here Are Your Ingredients You Can Use Frozen Fruit As Well. If You Choose To Use Frozen Make Sure You Use some Cornstarch To Cut Down On The Liquid.
Here Is What It Should Look Like Before You Add The Topping.
The Topping Is Equal Parts Brown Sugar, Flour, Oatmeal and Cold Cubed Butter. I Use 1/4 Cup Of Each And Then Sprinkle It Over The Top.
You Can Make It Ahead And Keep It In The Fridge Until Later. My Trick Is To Slip It Into The Oven When You Sit Down To Eat. This Way It Is Warm When You Are Ready To Dig In.

Bake At 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes

Feel Free To Top It With Ice Cream or Whipped Cream If You Like. Hope you Enjoy.
And Remember You Can Switch Up The Fruit To Use Whatever You Have On Hand.
