Gluten Free Apple Crisp
Well, we checked, and his battery is fine. But now we know, which is good.
Did you have a nice Christmas in Florida?
We had our main Christmas celebration with all the children and grandchildren the weekend before Christmas in Ottawa, at our oldest daughter's house. It was nice, but hectic. The main reason was to reduce my anxiety, by making me a guest instead of the hostess.
I actually never had to cook a turkey etc. at all, as yesterday (Christmas Day) we were invited for Christmas dinner at my husband's brother's house, and their mother and stepfather was there, too.
I tried my hand at making a nice, gluten free apple crisp to bring along, so I had some dessert, too. It turned out very nice, and everybody else loved it, too. I used a mixture of buckwheat (which is not a grain at all) flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, ground flax seed and ground hazelnut instead of 'real' flour. It was an experiment, and it turned out great.
Still, something made me not feel so great. And while we drove there (to Toronto, an hours drive) in dense fog, we came home in heavy snow and very slippery roads. It was a pretty scary drive (especially because my husband refuses to have snow tires on the van, even though he caved in and had some put on my car), I was very glad when we got back home.
All in all, this Christmas is less stressful for me than the previous ones.
