Apple crisp … perfect for a cool fall night, or morning, over the campfire. Try this during your Halloween stay, and invite me to your site! 🙂
Grilled Apple Crisp
Combine oats, flour, sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Keep the bowl in the fridge while you prepare the apples.
Wash apples and pat dry. Core and slice apples, then toss them with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Cut two squares of foil (about a foot each) and lightly butter the center of each piece.
Place the apples onto of one of the foil pieces and then sprinkle with the crumble mixture. Place the top piece of foil (butter side down) on the package and crimp the edges inwards one at a time until the package is well sealed. Wrap the entire package in another layer of foil to help prevent burning on the edges.
Place the foil pack on the grill (heated to a medium heat) for about 20 minutes. Let cool a minute or two before opening, it is very hot.
Serve with vanilla ice cream!

I took a stroll out in the campground in the snow. It is so peaceful and quiet. No one out but me … oh, and Rudolph and that bird.
Rudolph? Have you been walking down by the lake?
You have haven’t you?
You haven’t been walking on the icy lake have you?
You little rascal! You have been walking on the lake. Shame on you. Don’t you know reindeer aren’t good ice skaters?
What’s this little birdie up to?
I think he got confused by our one way on Garland …
…and started going in circles.
Goodness! Now I’m dizzy.
I’m sure he was just looking for the Holiday World shuttle stop.
I can’t imagine why no one was waiting for the shuttle. Could it be the roof of ice? Hmm, that could be it I suppose.
Back up Dasher Hill toward the office for me.
Doesn’t Dasher Hill just look like the perfect sled riding hill.
Or the perfect place to make a snow angel.
Which I did. 🙂

Have you ever asked your little kiddos what they think you do at work? A few nights ago I came home from work and my two year old (she’ll be three next month) asked if I’d had a good day. Here’s how the conversation went …
Addy: Mommy! You’re home! Have a good day at work?
Me: I did baby. Did you have fun with mamaw?
Addy: Uh-huh. We painted, and played, and watched Dora … Mommy? Whatcha do at work?
Me: What do you think I do at work? You’ve been to mommy’s office before.
Addy: You ride the golf car and get candy! Whole lot candy!
Well, the truth is out there folks. All I really do at work is ride the golf car and get candy. What a hoot! By the way that’s her in the owl costume. 🙂
I know this comes from our Halloween Weekends, which she is usually present for six out of the seven. It cracked me up that she thinks this is what I do all day long!
I have to state that for the record while I’m riding the golf car and getting candy (I’m not passing on Milk Duds or Dots), I’m also taking photos and video. So there!
Cowboy Hot Dogs
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add onion, and cook until golden and tender, stirring frequently.
Heat grill to medium (350° to 450°). Grill hot dogs until slightly charred all over, about 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Add buns and grill, turning frequently, until warmed and lightly charred, about 3 minutes.
Spread buns with mayonnaise and drizzle with mustard and barbecue sauce. Set hot dogs in buns.
Sprinkle cheese on top, followed by caramelized onions and bacon.

We’ve had our share of the white stuff lately … though not as much as other areas see on a regular basis. One thing I remember from snow days at home is my mom making snow ice cream. Thought I’d share that recipe!
Snow Ice Cream
Whisk sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk in a large mixing bowl until combined. Add in your snow. You need around 8 cups, more or less depending on the consistency of the snow.
Once it’s stirred in you want an ice cream type consistency. So add until you achieve that. Should be fluffy and easy to scoop. Not runny!
It melts fairly quick so serve it up! Add sprinkles if you like.
*Eat snow at your own risk. If you’re worried, use shaved ice. And for goodness sake avoid yellow snow! 🙂
