Shopping for groceries, I pushed a cart through the produce area looking for vegetables. I found celery, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, and tomatoes, enough for a few days. I looked around for Steve, but I couldn’t find him.
Just around the corner from produce was the bakery where I found Steve holding a single slice of apple pie, staring at it as though he needed to open it and eat it right there.
Steve strongly supports me in my new wheat-free journey. He doesn’t expect me to prepare foods made from wheat, and I do my best to make tasty foods without wheat. I don’t try to keep Steve from eating wheat, even though I think it is not good for anyone. When we go out to dinner, Steve eats wheat and enjoys it.
When I saw that he was longing for an old-fashioned wheat-based pastry, I offered to bake him an apple crisp. He smiled and put down the apple pie slice. As soon as we got home, I took the apples out of the fridge and started to prepare apple crisp.
P.S. The recipe I used for apple crisp is from allrecipes.com. I substituted gluten-free flour for the wheat flour and used gluten-free flour instead of the oats, also. I increased the butter just a little. I also cut the recipe in half.
