Strawberry-Apple Crisp!

I have seen the light.

Or, rather, I have tasted it.

Have you ever eaten strawberries that you plucked from the earth mere minutes earlier?  I have.  And I think I tasted heaven.

^Look at those beauties.  Those are 100% Photoshop free!
Those delectable  jewels weren’t just the prettiest, but the juiciest, most flavorful berries I have ever eaten!  And, of course we bought 2 pounds of strawberries, so we have a good supply.  But we all know they won’t last more than 3 days!  We went with my little cousin, who couldn’t resist eating some fruit straight out of the dirt.  Hey, at least I washed them before I stuffed them into my face ate them. :)
Although I have no problem eating a gallon of these strawberries unadorned, the sheer number of berries we collected called for a real recipe.  And when you think strawberries, you think shortcake.  But I didn’t make a shortcake!  I went for a healthy, simple, fruit crisp.  Can you overdose on strawberries?  Because I think I just died of sweet delicious happiness.
This strawberry-apple crisp was featured at my family’s memorial day cook-out, and it was a HIT!   It was the perfect ending to a big meal.  It’s possible that I enjoyed this more than  The Avengers, which I saw last night……and that’s saying something.
