Apple , cranberries crumble

apple crumb 3

This week end I hosted my brother in law and his wife for lunch. In fact they know an architect who lives near my home. And as we had serious doubt about one wall structure, we thought that the better way to make a safe remolding is asking a professional. We planed to use a glass room division between breakfast room and dinning room. So, we ask him some question about which will be the best way to make it works

Remolding rooms are not an easy job. Is my first experience and I had to said…never, ever think in spaces that you don’t have. I know, it seems obvious, but sometimes I think:”.. And, if I put a large island in the middle?” At the same time I thought: “so, if I do this I loose my breakfast room and I didn’t want to loose it…”Is not easy. Mainly, if your space are small

Well, but back to the theme I resolve made an apple crumb for dessert. When my husband saw me peeling the apples he asks me “What are you doing with those apples? Are you planning roast it ?? Yes, I said

He look at me and said Hummm , I wouldn’t like ..He ate twice as much the others and asks if I had more. Do you believe this?
