Tonight was one of those nights where I wish I had a Hoveround…
It would have come in quite handy to roll me out of my in-laws house after indulging in an amazing, comfort food-filled dinner.
We started things off with a simple, innocent enough tossed salad, which I topped with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.
Which even came with a little festive treat! Mmmm, chocolate.
So, it’s always good to pack away extra veggies before the “main event,” right?
I really wish I could say that by doing this, I end up eating less of my main meal (as everyone says you “should” end up doing). But no, not me.
I guess I just eat more food.
Speaking of more food…check it out! My in-laws made homemade lasagna.
Mmmm. I sure do love me some homemade lasagna.
I also had a piece of Mastroianni (the best around) bread to soak up any leftover sauce. What else are you supposed to do with leftover sauce??
Ohhhh the dessert.
My MIL put together an incredible recipe which I really need to share with you. All it requires is three ingredients, but be warned…it’s dangerous.
Buttery Apple Crumble
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 can apple pie filling
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into small pats
Layer bottom of greased 9×13 pan with apple pie filling. Crumble dry cake mix over top of apple filling. Pat butter over the top of the dry cake mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes*, or until lightly browned. Serve with ice cream, and be ready to be mesmerized. ENJOY!
*The recipe that she had gave a bake time of 20 minutes. Hers wasn’t done at all by this point, so we kept checking in every 10 minutes or so. Hers cooked for almost 60 minutes, but we agreed it could have been a little less.
It literally just melted in my mouth…it was soooo good.
I may or may not have gone back for a small helping of seconds.
Hence the reason I could have used one of these…
Time to go roll myself into bed…g’night ya’ll!!
Question for the Evening:
