apple pizza

Z brought home this recipe from the elementary school (where he attends "specials" in
the afternoons) and couldn't wait to try it out! 
We made a few minor adjustments (using butter instead of oil and adding oats to the top). :)

Crust:  2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
5-7 Tbs cold water

Mix and pat into pizza pan.

Filling: 7 medium apples (sliced, cubed, or chopped)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg (or a generous amount of fresh grated nutmeg)

Mix together and spread over crust.

Topping:  1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup oats

Mix until crumbly and spread on top of apples.

Bake 12-15 minutes at 400º.

this moment

Joining with Soulemama this week.
A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

around the farm

We're back from a few days away and catching up on things around the farm.
Adam tilled in some brassicas and herbs and hung the dry beans in the hoop house.
We're getting the ground ready for our high tunnel 
that we're building this month (thanks to a grant we received)

What's going on around your farm, garden or homestead?

out and about

We spent this past weekend in Ontario visiting some farming friends.  
It was a beautiful fall weekend and the boys enjoyed their farm (especially the cart rides!)

not quite right

But still pretty cute!  Supposed to be like this, but I messed up the top.
A friend sent me these baby legs for our little baby4 and I just had to stick
them with this dress because they looked so sweet with it.
Keeping calm and crafting on with Nicole.  :)
