The apple crumble - finally found the answer to a crunchier topping. My last few crumbles have been too sandy. This time I added granola (just the oats) and a little more dark brown sugar than before. Whilst not perfect, it did the trick (temporarily satisfied G who is in search of the perfect topping).
Apple Crumble and Beef Wellington
Disclaimer - I didn't make the beef wellington, Balducci's did - and I admitted it (finally). Good for me frankly, as G thought the beef was completely flavourless. Note to self, this is why passing off a storebought dish as your own can backfire. No photos of the crumble...I have lost them. Besides I am really only posting these pics above to show off that I peeled that apple in one go, and that I like our kitchen tap.
