that’s the song of the day, and it’s by robbie robertson.

according to karl t. in missouri, his city is now going to try to make a “gardening ordinance” so he may still get zapped- even though he already won his case. i would call his city folks a bad name, but i try really hard to keep this blog content family-friendly. bottom line: please stay plugged in to his blog and his case, and i will try to keep you updated as new info becomes available. as with all of these cases, it seems they aren’t over, even when they are over.

and if there is anyone out there in or around tulsa who can get me an update on denise morrison, please let me know. i have put in several calls to the local news station and haven’t gotten any info. when i google her, all i find are the same articles about her lawsuit against the city for tearing up her garden- and we already know this… so stay tuned on that front as well…


here’s the recipe of the day. it’s easy, pretty quick, pretty cheap (you can get apple pie filling at most dollar stores, making it unhealthy and gross, but also inexpensive and summery. gotta pick your battles…), and pretty yummy.

cranberry-apple-crumbly stuff (feel free to make up your own better name for it)

1 can apple pie filling

1 can cranberry sauce

4 TBSP sugar

4 TBSP brown sugar

1 cup flour

1/2 cup butter or margarine, cut into chunks

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray pie plate or casserole dish (it needs to be somewhat deep or the stuff will bubble over the top) with non-stick spray (i never said this recipe was healthy, right?)

mash up cranberry sauce a bit and then mix in pie filling. i do this right in the bottom of my baking dish (saves on washing up). in a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients until they are crumbly and then pour the crumbly stuff over the top of your cranberry-apple mixture.

bake, uncovered, at 375 for 45 minutes or until the stuff on top is golden brown. you can/should serve it straight out of the baking dish. it is good hot or cold.
