We've returned from our grand tour of Copenhagen, and it is good to be home. We had a good trip, and my conference presentation went well.

Here are some highlights:


The Viking Museum on Roskilde Fjord

The famous Little Mermaid Statue (with me!)

And now that we are home I must concentrate on my tenure document. But first, some apple crisp.

This recipe is from Pampered Chef. They call it Quick Apple Crisp. The only thing that makes it quick for me is this.

5 Granny Smith apples
1 package (9 ounces) yellow cake mix (I use Jiffy, but if you buy a regular size box you can make this recipe twice!)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use peanuts because they are they only nuts Charlie will eat.)
Vanilla ice cream

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel, core and slice apples. Place apples in pie plate or casserole.
2. Combine cake mix, sugar, cinnamon, butter and nuts. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture evenly over apples.
3. Bake 35-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Serve warm with ice cream.



Fall is Here

There's a chill in the air and I have the desire to listen to Christmas music...must mean fall is here!

I found a tutorial for making fabric pumpkins and thought how nice a black and white pumpkin would look in my dining room. The tutorial was super easy so I made two:

And Jaxon approved (I want pa-kin)...

The countdown has officially begun for our trip to Copenhagen. We leave a week from Monday and I am starting to get nervous about having my conference presentation ready to go -- and traveling farther than I ever have.

Anyone have any suggestions of things to do in Copenhagen? We have a list of things we would like to see (Tivoli, Stroget, Danish Design Center), but any suggestions or helpful hints would be greatly appreciated!
