More Than Dessert

Tonight I made apple crisp for the first time.  I had never attempted it because I didn't have the dexterity to peel and cut up apples.  Luckily for me, the dessert turned out well.  Winona said that she, "loved it," and then informed me that she had never had apple crisp before.  Her response triggered my emotions and I couldn't help going from happy to sad so quickly.  Because of me, she had never tried this very common American treat.  I can't help but think that there are many other things that she hasn't experienced.  Now that this information is with me, I need to have her suggest things for us to try together.  We can do anything we put our minds to.  I just hope that she doesn't ask me to sky dive!!


  1. Before we moved from Ashwaubenon in 1985, Steve started making apple crisp with me. When we got to Georgia, the crisp was made with peaches. You will have lots of fun cooking/baking with Winona and Sharon. Each child will develop a specialty to share with your family. :-) Hug you soon!

  2. Way to go Jean! Try not to think of it as the things she's "never tried", it's just things you have yet to share together. Because Winona is old enough and had never had it before you now get to share in the memory of those first bites. It's not a common everyday thing which makes it special.
    Now, when can I come over and try this crisp out too! LOL

  3. Just so everyone enjoys it NOW. No time to regret the uneaten crisps of the past, honey. Good times ahead!
