{baking & enjoying} ~ Peach Crisp for the Dormition Fast

I remember that when I was newly married,
Mat. Anna told me that part of being married
was establishing traditions...
That has held me in good stead!
Soon it will be two years of Mr. Husband and I being wed!
Last year for the Dormition Fast I made 
this peach crisp

I made it again last night...
using coconut oil instead of margarine. 

I love how versatile coconut oil is...

The only thing I would do differently is that I mixed it all
up together in the pan that it baked in.

I liked how I did it last year when the topping was more
But it is still good!
We had a bite of it hot out of the oven but 
are looking forward to having some tonight after dinner!
we had some for dinner... I think I will stay with
the margarine and be sure to add a bit more brown sugar (I was a bit skimpy on this)
and more cinnamon; it was just too 'blah'.)
I can tell that I am still adjusting to our new home by how
I feel 'homesick' for the times I had 
newly married in our first home.
I know it just takes time and 
I do indeed love our new home!
I think it's just been such a busy summer 
that I have not had a 
lot of time to feel that I have done enough 
to make this place feel 
home...so many changes and all so good 
but everything takes time.
Speaking of time...
I am having a hard time staying present within time...
I've already been working on Christmas presents and wrote
a list of all I need to do in the next few months.
Dormition though and am trying to stay in the present,
in this small sweet late August fast.

I'm adding this to my holiday menu!!! Thank goodness for frozen peaches ( although not as good as fresh!)

Yum! (I'm of the opinion that you can't have too much brown sugar...)
