Apple bites are quick to put together. All you need to do is slice up the apple, spread the apple slices with a nut butter, and then top the apple slices. Yum! Such a healthy snack depending on what you put on top of the apple slices.

The Imaginative One LOVES apples. Actually, that’s an understatement; he adores apples and will eat all the way to the core and even around the seeds. He loves to pack them for lunch.
Since it’s fall, apples are plentiful, so I decided I would try to make some applesauce in the crock pot. I’ve made it on the stove, so I followed the same method but in the crock pot instead.
While the apples were cooking, the boys and I went on an adventure. The in the Dayton areaWright Brothers lived in the Dayton areaWright Brothers lived in the Dayton area and tested out the airplane. I’m so fortunate that I live about 5 miles from where they tested the airplane after the December 17, 1903 flight. We went to the Interpretive Center and then down to the Huffman Dam, which was built after the Great Flood of 1913. After we were done with our walk, we drove through the local university because it has beautiful fall foliage, especially in one area.

I’m over two-thirds of the way through the challenge. I’ve shared a dip, main dishes, and soups. This is the first time I’ve shared a dessert.
Last Saturday, Hubby and I were discussing how I’m planning to make most of our Thanksgiving dinner in the crock pot. He told me I would probably make an apple crisp in the crock pot for our Thanksgiving dinner.
He didn’t know I had planned to make a crisp in the crock pot for our Sunday dinner.
Every Sunday, we have dinner with my mother-in-law. Sometimes she cooks, or we go out to eat. Recently I’ve been cooking dinner. The majority of the meal was cooked in the crock pot. The whipped cream and veggies were the only meals not cooked in the crock pot.
This dessert was delicious. I put the caramel drizzle on the crisp. It really didn’t that drizzle. The crisp was sweet enough without it.
This crisp is especially delicious with whipped cream on top. I usually make my own whipped cream now. Homemade whipped cream is delicious and yummy!
