{the best apple dessert period}

This is a yummy and simple recipe that I got here. I just wanted to take a straw and suck up all the juices with it.

2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 small can Mountain Dew

Peel and core apples. Cut apples into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan. Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.

Grandma Mary Soup

This is a soup that Amelia's mom used to make her when she was sick. It's one of Chase favorite things to eat. It is a comfort soup that is very easy to make and it has a great flavor. It goes really well with grilled cheese sandwiches.

1 small can of tomato sauce
2 cubes (or four teaspoons) of chicken bouillon (I like the Knorr brand) ( I suppose that you could use chicken broth too..but you loose some flavor)
about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of the small shells pasta (just a guess..depends on how "brothy" you like)
4 cups of water
salt and pepper

1. Brown the shells with the oil
2. Add water, chicken bouillon, tomato sauce
3. Sprinkle top with garlic salt and pepper (sort of heavy pepper)

Let simmer for about 15 minutes. Careful it's usually pretty hot!
