Having a hard time deciding what to write here today.
Should we food bloggers always combine a recipe with a funny story about it, or about our lives?
Well, there are many reasons why I choose to bake/cook what I choose to bake/cook... like:
a) I want to eat that specific thing... as in... right - NOW.
b) I saw this thing on (insert website/blog/magazine/book/...) and I can't get it out of my head.
c) I have some (insert edible things here) going stale that I need to get rid of.
d) There is a (insert social event here) coming up - you can find me thinking about new recipes weeks ahead, especially if I'm hosting.
e) I just really feel like cooking/baking, which is not easy to distinguish from:
f) I am bored and cooking/baking is such a great hobbie! (usually followed by oh no, do I have to eat all this now?!)
g) I have a food blog which I can't neglect - and new ideas coming up.
h) Someone asked me to!
i) I am procrastinating and so I really need to cook/bake (insert wild cooking/baking project here).
j) Several or all of the above.
(I may have forgotten some reasons, but I thing I got the most important covered.)
So this crumble was definitely a j, a mix between a, c, e, f and i (although it is not that wild, but I was, indeed, procrastinating.) It really is nothing out of the ordinary, but this fruit combo is a winner and the oats top it perfectly. And it is sooo easy to do... Hope you enjoy it - and maybe use this recipe to fulfill the same purposes :)
