We're heading out of town for the rest of the week (again), but I wanted to leave you with a delicious treat to make this weekend: Peach-Mango Crisp. The two of us went through a box of mangoes from Costco that was large and in charge, all by ourselves, and I think we're much better (and our tummies more satisfied) for it. We ate them raw, put them in salads, with yogurt, on cereal, and in oatmeal - you name it, we ate it with mangoes. We didn't have ice cream to top this little ditty, but it was still fabulous. I even had some of the leftovers for breakfast the next morning! Don't judge me - you'll probably do it, too.
A Get in the Kitch Original
2 c. ripe mango, peeled & chopped
2 c. fresh or frozen peaches, chopped
1/2 c. quick oats
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. melted butter or margarine
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Add melted butter and mix until well incorporated.
2. Toss the mango and peaches together in a separate bowl to mix, then pour into a 9 x 9 inch greased baking dish.
3. Evenly spread the topping over the fruit in spoonfuls.
4. Bake at 375 degrees about 25 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is browning and getting crispy.
We're going to spend a long weekend on North Carolina Coast, and I can't wait to taste some real southern cooking! Stay tuned for my report on the trip and food!
