Apple of my Eye

My favorite month is finally here, which means our favorite tradition is picking!  If you haven't been, I strongly suggest you go. Free testers, all of the apples you can think of, and of course the best part, apple crisp (recipe below). Being back in Rexburg definitely has its perks! 
As you can tell we take this job very seriously. 
 I have learned a lot this last month about what is most important. People let you down, treat you poorly, and life takes you in a direction you weren't expecting. Yet, in the process you gain perspective, love more, and appreciate people who truly love you. 
Nights like these make the ups and downs of life much easier. Sometimes life throws you apples and you have no other choice but to make apple juice...or in our case apple crisp. 
And in the process be...

Positively Contagious 

1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
Apple filling:
6 apples
Lemon juice to taste (so the apples don't turn brown)
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 T flour
1 ¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
Combine apple filling ingredients in bowl. 
In a separate bowl combine topping ingredients. Mix together with a fork. 
In a 9x13 pan pour in apple mixture followed by topping mixture. Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes.
