mother effing friday

it's totally friday and i'm happy. we got done with class an hour early and i got to get in and out of lab (yay... our culture is growing 2 organisms and due to streaking skills we've got sweet isolation) it was a BEE-UUUU-TEEEE-FUL day here so i got home as fast as i could and went out for a 14.3 mile bike ride through the random country-side area here. i saw some cows and some people and some farms and i ended up near a fairground and although i made it back, i have no idea where i was. i thought my computer on my bike was freaking out cuz it stopped taking readings, but i got it figured out (that's why i'm in med school... i can figure shit out) so i got home and cleaned up and all that jazz, then i went to run some errands (yeah, i know, you totally want to hear my life story) i got a pretty tea-pot though, it's red and i got all the stuff to make my asian pasta thing, although, giant weasel didn't have hot pepper oil... the bastards. i made it, and it's decent. it needs something, maybe ginger, but i didn't buy that either. i bought some fruit to make another fruit crisp, but i don't think i blogged about the first one... so here goes:

i had a boatload of apricots that my grandmother gave me but i don't like apricots... they're ucky all plain. so i was going to make an apricot buckle like my amazing blueberry buckle, but i had no milk. so my mom gave me the most fantastic and easy reciipe. you should all try it:

~4-6 cups of your fruit (like i said, i used apricots and i added some raisens and 2 pluots... plum apricot combo fruit wierdnesses)
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1T lemon juice
-3/4 c instant oats
-3/4 c flour
-3/4 c brown sugar
-1/2 cup butter (i used a little oil cuz it was in reach, although i think this might be good with half butter half applesaucs)
-1/2 c chopped nuts

cut the fruit in slices (or whatever you want to cut them into... i don't care)
mix the dry ingrediants and then add the butter and lemon juice and mix until you get a nice crumbly mixture... put the fruit into the bottom of a lightly sprayed 12x8 pan. sprinkle the crumbly mixture over top.

bake at 375 for about 35 minutes (preheat your oven of course)

so yeah, this is really amazing with apricots although i talked with my mom and she did it with peaches and nectarines and said it was A-mazing! it's going to be a winter staple i think, but with apples and or pears. i'll post pictures tomorrow.

and it's really good on vanilla ice cream.

and by the way, you can not get vibrio vulnificus from hunting rabbits as i declared you could in front of my medical class today... it made sense to me. bass island... whatevers.
