I am starting to get more energy and I decided to go to the market this weekend. There was lots of fresh fruits and veggies and I ended up spending about an hour there. The local berries looked amazing and it is getting to the end of the season, so I had to get some! I ended up making a beautiful berry crisp with them and it turned out wonderful (see picture above - nummy eh?). db is really enjoying it with ice cream. The crisp was super simple to make and took about 20 minutes (mostly because I couldn't find the brown sugar!) to put together and I baked it for about 45 minutes.
I got the recipe here. I made a couple changes:
- I used margarine instead of butter (I had no butter in the fridge)
- I used blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries - approximately 2 cups each
- I baked mine in a 8 x 13 glass dish - wouldn't do this again! I would use a deeper dish and not as long of a dish.
- Next time I make this, I am going to cut out some sugar - even though it was really really nummmy - I don't know if it needs all that sugar!
