Butter a 2 qt. casserole.
Thoroughly blend together:

1 tea. grated orange peel
Grate and mix in :
3 oz. cheddar cheese (3/4 cup grated)
Wash, quarter and pare and cut into 1/8" slices:

Arrange one half on the apple slice in casserole. Sprinkle with one half of sugar-cheese misture; repeat. Sprinkle over the top:

Cover surface with mixture of:

What! You mean you can't see anything in this dish? Oh yeah! I forgot to mention that when I thought to take a picture of it, 4 teenage boys had come in for lunch and devoured it. So I am assuming that it was quite tasty!
I tried to work out in the garden some today but the pollen was just too much for me. I have mostly outgrown my hayfever, but when the tulip poplars are blooming it really does me in. Here is what I got for Mothers Day! A pink hydrangea. I have one that is blue, one that is almost purple and one called a "lace cap" that is white with blue on the edges.And this is one of my most favorite sights
Pears! My poor pear tree thinks its way bigger than it is! I have to prop up its limbs every year even after I have pulled some of the pears off so the branches don't break.
Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
