Inner Donna Reed...

It's clean up time!
 Time to pack up the skulls and spiders...
time to pull out the Thanksgiving goodies and start to plan for the December celebrations!
 Time to gather your family close with delicious meals and comfort food.
Time to channel a little of your inner Donna Reed...

 Time to make something so simple, with things you can always have on hand,
but so good it will have your family running for the table!
 Heat that oven to 425 and let's get busy!
3 cans of sliced pears
1 can of cherry pie filling
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tbs ground cinnamon
Mix that all up in a bowl.
 2 boxes of macaroons, located at The Dollar Tree.
Leave the cookies in the bag.
 Remember that thing Marylou Plimpkin said about your shoes looking like they're 
from Walmart at the school bake sale? Use that anger constructively and crush the
cookies with a rolling pin. So what if your shoes are from Walmart???
They're CUTE!

 Now open the bags of coarse crumbs and put them in a bowl as cold and hard as Marylou's heart...
 er, sorry.
 Melt a stick of butter for 45 seconds in the microwave and mix it in with the cookies.
 Add a glurp (1/4 cup) of your favorite liqueur.
I have amaretto hanging around the house.
 Liberally douse a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Spread the fruit mixture over the bottom and then sprinkle the cookies on top if that.
Give it a little shake of cinnamon sugar if you're a spice freak like me.
Pop it in the oven, sit back with some hot cider, kick off your $5
Walmart sneakers and wait about 35 minutes until it's brown and bubbly.
Serve this up with a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Try to look like it was hard to make so you're justified when you buy more shoes.

I wonder if I can write those off as a business expense?

I don't know MaryLou but I hate her anyway. That dish looks SO good! Love the simple cookie crust. You did not have to tell ME how much is in a glurp - I've been glurping since before you were in Kindergarten, lady.

P.S. thanks for the Bassett picture - I can NEVER see too many of those!
