Caramel Apple Cobbler

I'm a farm girl through and through. You can take the girl off the farm but you can't take the farm out of the girl. It will never leave me. It's a lifestyle. Not that I'm very far from the farm. I moved to "town", which happens to be a whopping 5,000 people. The farm is all of a great seven miles away.

Every spring I'm calling Daddy (that's right "Daddy" I'll always be his little girl) and asking how much he's got in the field, what field he's in or bugging my little bro about what's going on out at the farm.

Fall time rolls around and I'm constantly scanning the fields for the first sign of harvest. I love that sweet smell of fall. The crops coming out, crisp autumn leaves, fresh dirt from the fields being worked. I'm a dork. Have you noticed yet?

My family is also spoiled. My amazing mother, seriously amazing, brings a hot meal out to the field every night. How's that for service? It's like meals on wheels. She gets tired and burned out though, so being the wonderful daughter I am (I'm saying this only to boost my ego) I volunteer a couple times every fall and bring supper out.

I love it. The guys rave and ooh and ahh over what you make. Shovel it in their mouths and run back to their combine, truck, tractor or whatever their wheels happen to be. Then I climb in with one of them, usually the little bro in the combine and tag along. We have some good talks in that combine. We solve all our problems, tease each other and just hang out while watching the deer wander by. True bonding time. Miss K even got in on this year's combine ride!

I love the farm. End of story.

This little treat I whipped up is super easy and the guys loved it as a dessert for their meal out in the field.

I'm not a farm girl but for some reason I really love farmers/farm girls...maybe b/c my grandparents had a farm and I had so much fun every summer when we got to stay a month with them. It's the simple & good life, at least in my book. And your caramel appler cobbler sounds SO good!
