Fruit Crumble

I think I’m a pretty awesome wife – and humble I know!! Tonight I decided to surprise Scott with a midweek after dinner treat.  He is also looking after both the boys during the peak of witching hour whilst I go to the gym, so he deserves a big reward!  He has been on a bit of a health kick recently (to the point where he knocked back the pizza lunch at work for Melbourne Cup yesterday), so I knew he would want to keep things pretty healthy.  I decided to make a fruit dessert, there were a couple of apples & pears in the fruit bowl, and Liam had some leftover strawberries and peaches from his afternoon tea.  I like a crunchy top, so I added some chopped almonds to the oats.  For easy serving, I divided the mixture into four ramekins, if you prefer you could put it all into one dish.

Liam and I have shared one already, we added vanilla yoghurt to ours and we both really enjoyed it.  Scott isn’t home yet, so I haven’t gotten feedback from my toughest critic yet… if this doest cement my place as wife of the year, I don’t know what will!!
