Blacking out

Parenthood is a potent drug. I did not know what it was like to blackout until last night.  I remember talking to my parents last night on skype, but have no idea when or how i got to bed.

My wife took this picture sometime after I slumped least she did not give me a permanent marker mustache.

I have also been on the trai1of how to use cranberries in recipes since I can buy them for about 50 cents/lb.  So I edited this recipe from Taste of Home.


  • 3 cups 4 large chopped peeled tart apples
  • 2 cups 12oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 and 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • Combine apples, cranberries, sugar and flour. Pour into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. In a bowl, mix topping ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until fruit is tender. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Add Vanilla ice cream. You are welcome.
