Okay, when you read this, depending on the day-I’ll have less than a week before boarding the SS Eclipse and be on my umpteenth honeymoon.  

Don’t cringe-we went on one for our 10th, our 20th, our 25th-28, and now the 30th.  We skipped the 29th, because it would’ve seemed a might indulgent and out of budget to do so on the same year as our son’s wedding.

What I’m doing is doing the “empty the fridge for vacation” purge.

That means that no matter how odd-we‘re going to be eating whatever I can use-literally in house.

Our freezer’s packed, but it doesn’t matter there, it will all keep.  However, I bought a box of 18 eggs.  I’ve only used 2.  Don’t really know what I was thinking last week, but it’s too late to ponder it.  

I have a feeling the fruit and veggie situation won’t be an issue.  As of this moment, I have 2 red peppers, some sugar snap peas and (again, don’t know why I bought this)an almost full 10 pound bag of carrots.  

Okay, I love carrots and I can make them in various ways-but with my husband, he will probably start “kvetching” after the third “serving” day.  

Our fruit bin has some grapes and gala apples left.  I see a “apple-a-day” casserole sometime this week.

What is this you ask?  I’m pretending you care on this, so keep up ladies!

I thinly slice both the carrots and the apples.  Spray some Pam, butter flavored preferred by yours truly.  layer them so that they‘re in the apple-carrot-apple-carrot mode.  Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and ginger.  If you want, a bit of brown sugar-that’s up to you. Pour about 1/3 C orange juice over them.  Make a “crumb” mixture-I usually eyeball this with equal parts of flour, oats and brown sugar (hence using the sugar on the rest-I don’t) and cut in half the measurement in margarine.  How much depends on how “crumby” you like to have this dish.  Cover the carrots/apples and bake at 350 until the veggies are soft and the topping nice and golden.

This is great because the leftovers make a really good breakfast.

And now, I’m off to spend time alone with my husband of 30 years.  

See you sometime the week of the 10th!

Love it
