Apple Pear Crisp

The boys go to bed between 7:00 and 7:30 so I feel it's better to eat early so they have time to digest their food before going to bed. Makes sense, right? Because we ate dinner super early, the boys were ready for their second dinner by 6pm. Instead of giving them another full meal, I made them dessert. We usually eat fruit for dessert, but every now and then, I like to treat them to something different. Tonight, I sweetened it up and made an apple pear crisp. They loved the change and the sweet, crunchy topping.

The boys were ready to dig in so my photo isn't the best.
I'll just have to make it again so I can take better pics.  :)
