under a crumble of butter, brown sugar, flour 'n' spices
baked until warm 'n' crisp


So is it a crumble or a crisp?
Both actually.
"A crisp is called a crumble in Britain" JANE DANIELS LEAR
Enough semantics,
it's Monday and it's raining
So here it is, for you, 
Monday Morning
" Let it rain on my rooftop, 
So I can hear the sounds, 
Of passing winds through blowing trees, 
Says I'll see you around, 
When the seasons can say things, 
That I never can, 
When words describe nothing, 
When I come home again, 
Well I guess I must of lost it, 
In line of my luck, 
That says this is your life now, 
And you're done with growing up, 
Well I missed my mark, 
And I miss the trees, 
And I miss lying in bed today, 
To picture these things, "

Monday + Rain = 
Apple Crumble for two


1 apple
1 TBS sugar
1 TBS cinnamon

1/2 cup flour
2 TBS cinnamon
1 TBS nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 TBS butter, cold
2 TBS brown sugar 

2 small baking cups

what TO DO

wash and chopped the apple
(I personally enjoy the skin, if you're not a fan then peel the apple before chopping)
toss the apple with 1 TBS sugar + 1 TBS cinnamon 
divide in two, spoon into two small baking cups 

in a small bowl . . . 
sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, slat and baking powder
dump in brown sugar 
cut up the cold butter into 1/2" cubes, dump into bowl 
with your hands 'crumble' the mix together
(it takes some time, but make sure all the butter 'n' sugar combine with the flour mixture) 
divide the crumble mixture in two, spoon on top of the apples in each baking cup

preheat oven 350 F
bake for 30-40 mins.
(the apple juices should be bubbling up the sides a bit)
check around 20 mins. to make sure the top does not burn 
if it is starting to, turn down the heat

share your crumble with someone
"only benevolence can capture what I mean"
