He's silly like his momma.
Conversation with my two-year old sweetie, Nicholas the other day:
Me: (pointing to a small ceramic pumpkin on the kitchen table) Nicholas, see the pumpkin?
Nicholas: It's Apple.
Me: No, sweetheart, it's a pumpkin. Can you say pumpkin?
Me: Nicholas, can you say pumpkin?
Nicholas: (grinning up at me) Apple.
Me: (giggling) Pumpkin.
Nicholas: (giggling) Apple.
I figure once we visit the pumpkin patch and pick out our apples...errr... I mean pumpkins, there's no way he can think the big orange pumpkins are apples, right??
Speaking of apples, here's one of my favorite fall recipes: Crockpot Baked Apples
5-6 baking apples <- last time I used Paula reds and they turned out good.
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 t cinnamon <- I used a bit more, but I love cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
crushed pecans <- optional
1- Core the apples and peel each about 1/4 of the way down.
2- Put them in the crockpot.
3- Fill the apple centers with 1/2 cup of the brown sugar, the oats, raisins and pecans if you use them.
4- Mix the water with the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and the rest of the brown sugar
6- Pour it over the apples and cook on low for 2-4 hours.
I serve them warm with vanilla ice cream. So yummy. :)
