Strawberry ( and blackberry) Crisps for Two

Lately it's been just Alice and me hanging out around this big ranch house. Nick is still in California and Haley is in Dallas visiting her aunt until next week. Because of this we're eating lots and lots of leftovers. We're also playing a game I like to call how many ways can you eat the same quinoa salad; in a tortilla, stuffed in a bell pepper, as a side dish, etc. So because my cooking has been so elementary lately I needed to create and that is how these strawberry (and some blackberries) crisps for two were born.

It's simple really. You take three strawberries, dice them. Then take a handful of blackberries, or not since they weren't very good hence the "(and blackberries)" portion of this blog. Take the berries and place them into two muffin cups.

Then take 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, and two tablespoons of margarine and mix it all together. You then need to crumble this mixture onto the tops of the berries. it should look a little like this:
bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.

While you're waiting you might want to do what Alice and I did, eat some strawberries and blackberries.

Then maybe decide that this batch of blackberries really isn't the best.

The finished product is delicious and you can easily double the recipe or swap the strawberries for peaches or your favorite fruit.
