Apple Disaster... (not so bad though!)

Today the day ran pretty smooth; Matheus is already feeling better and jumping around! It is amazing how fast kids recover and the energy they have, even when not at their 100%.
Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary and since the YMCA is having "Parents Night Out" today, and Matheus loves playing over there, we decided to go ahead and celebrate tonight (no need to find an available baby sitter!), so tonight we are going out for dinner! Yay!
Lunch was no different than what we use to have on the weekends when it is warm outside: grilled meat, rice and salad! I normally make some sort of tomato salad with all the tomatoes we get from our garden, but (unfortunately) summer is almost over and so is our tomatoes production… So I made a salad with a variety of vegetables today. Nothing special, but it was so colorful! (And good!)
I was going to make an Apple Galette for us to have tomorrow, but my pastry dough did not came right so I had to improvise and ended up making an Apple Crisp instead. (I mixed the filling and the dough didn’t work when I went to assemble the tart, hence the need to use the filling on something else).
The crisp looks nice and tomorrow we will find out how good it taste.
Now, off we go to a romantic night!

Our lunch salad!
Apple Crisp
Filling: I tossed together 4 peeled/sliced apples with 2 heaping tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour and some lemon juice (just so that the apples don’t get brown).
Crisp topping: 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup oatmeal, 4 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, cinnamon to taste (did not measure), mix it all together with the tip of your fingers until it resembles coarse meal.
Put apples in a glass dish, cover with topping, baked at 375F for 35 minutes (or until golden brown, bubbly, and delicious!)
