10-4 ~ Atlas ~ Naked Wines ~ Slow Cooker Apple Crisp ~ Taco Day

Good 38ยบ morning. Hope it stays as nice today as it was yesterday. Last year at this time we had lots of rain and I even put a fire in the wood stove. At least I didn't have to turn on the AC yesterday! First time in a long while!

Today is 10-4 ... meaning "ok" or "acknowledged".

Jen dropped Atlas, granddog, yesterday afternoon.
He will stay until Monday while Brian and Jen, Tucker and Sami, and Jen's mom Jean go to ... 

They will meet up with Kristen, Alex, and Jack on Saturday.

As of this moment they are in the air having just left Medford Airport en route to LAX. Atlas has met Bruiser and opposite of what Maggie does, shy away from him, Atlas was nosey... scared Bruiser! Funny. While Atlas is here, Harley stays upstairs!

Historically this date...
1963Hurricane Flora, kills 6,000 in Cuba and Haiti.

1965 – Becoming the first Pope to ever visit the United States of America and the Western hemisphere, Pope Paul VI arrives in New York.

1988U.S. televangelist Jim Bakker is indicted for fraud.

And births this date include...

1895Buster Keaton, American comedian (d. 1966)

1923Charlton Heston, American actor (d. 2008)

Dinner was reruns of the vegetable casserole, which is sooooo good. Will have to make that again soon. Next time maybe adding artichoke hearts and green beans....

I received my case of wine from Naked Wines, in Napa. I had a special coupon. I paid $59 for a case of mixed wines that normally sell for $160. Such a deal. Will be having fun with those. Since the back is still south, I had to open the box and carry them in 3 at a time! Groan....

How about trying this recipe....

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp
5 medium tart apples
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 box Betty Crocker yellow cake mix

Spray a 2-3 1/2 qt. slow cooker with cooking spray
In a large bowl toss apples, sugars, and cinnamon.
Add to slow cooker.
In medium bowl mix melted butter and dry cake mix and sprinkle on top of apples.
Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or until apples are soft. Remove cover last 30 minutes of cooking.

Or try this Pillsbury recipe with quick cooking oats, pecans, toffee bits...... This one cooks on low for 4-6 hours.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Thursday. Ciao.
