I am also very much in the mood for my mom's Apple Crisp. Here's that recipe (it was my favorite thing in the world when I was growing up):
10 x 6 pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Place 4 cups sliced apples in pan.
Sprinkle with 1 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 cup water.
Combine 3/4 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1/3 cup butter in a mixing bowl. Squish with your hands till crumbly. Drop on top of apples.
Bake 40 minutes or until topping is brown and apples are soft.
Last, but not least, I just bought some dried elderberries for making elderberry syrup.
Natalie begins Shakespeare this week and Leah is on Part II of Norse Mythology. I used the Signet Classics lesson plans (very traditional) for Beowulf and I liked them so I looked to see what they had for Shakespeare. Quite a lot, actually, and they are easy to follow and FREE to download (pdf format). We are doing Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing... but here is the entire roster of what Signet has to offer:
