This is the day they refer to as Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when the Christmas shopping gets off to a ridiculous start. It is a beautiful day around here as Helen and I have no intention of venturing out today. It has been quiet and we had a nice time this morning playing with the three adult Labs in the yard. Jodie and Coco love to play fetch, Coco being absolutely obsessive about it. Today Helen tried to interest Freckles in fetching. At first she didn't have a clue and is quickly intimidated by our two. Soon though, Helen would throw the ball and Freckles would fetch it and drop it at Helen's feet. She a quick learner.
Yesterday was a super day! Quiet and peaceful! We had the Barita Girls over (Barbara and Rita) and it was a wonderful day. The puppies were good and Jodie, Coco, and Freckles behaved very well. Barb brought a special dish that was delicious.
CRANBERRY -PINEAPPLE BAKE
2 apples - sliced and placed on the bottom of a 9 x 12 pan (but you can use any kind of bake ware)
Next place 1 large can crushed pineapple - drained - over apples
Next spread 1 can whole cranberries over pineapple
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix together - I use a pastry cutter to get butter cut into other ingredients - Mixture should be so all of the butter be in little pieces.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes - until bubbly
Trust me! This is a recipe well worth trying!
Well, now I've got to run, there's still some cranberry-pineapple bake left.
That's all for now.
