Last week Mr. J was in Alaska. All week. I hate Alaska. Not only was he gone but talking is nearly impossible with the time difference. He was getting done at work just as I was climbing into bed. 5 minutes conversations just aren't enough. He is back now so enough of that...the point is I was by myself. Bored. I couldn't really cook because when I cook massive amounts of food accumulate. Instead I played on the internet until I found something suitable.
Slow Cooker = Easy
Apples = Healthy
Brown Sugar and Walnuts = Smile
These were super quick and easy to get prepped. Then all I did was turn on the slow cooker for 3 hours.
You could call this dessert but I called it the most perfect fall snack. Breakfast is also very much an option. I had these baked apples for both.
