Everyday Mom's Meals: No Need To Fight

No Need To Fight

I love when food is so good, so tasty, your family is in a grudge match to see who can eat the last piece, last slice, last bowl. I personally take it as a compliment. Two weeks ago when we were at my mother in law's house for a group dinner, as people were starting to leave and not many of us were left, her brother (Adam's Uncle John) called back (And I mean w/ the phone, after driving home) asking "is there any cherry pie left?" When we answered "yes" he declared he was driving back (good thing he only lives down the road), bringing his own container, and taking the rest home. We all laughed about it b/c he was determined he was going to have the last of that cherry pie. Then a few days later I found out that the next day when my mother in law was headed down to Indy to see my sister in law, she declared, "Mom, bring the rest of the cherry pie w/ you". She quickly had to break it to her that Uncle John and already taken care of it. To which, she retorted, "Uncle John and I are in a cherry pie war." Isn't that hilarious? Now I didn't have any of that cherry pie, but dang it must have been killer! But I am pretty sure I know who made it, and if it's anything close to her blueberry pie that I L-O-V-E--I cant' say I blame them. So when this showed up at my "Church Supper" blog hop, shared by Julie's Eat and Treats, I host each Sunday the following day after this battle took place, I knew I had to make it and share it to hopefully keep the peace in the family :)

Cherry Crunch Pie
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
1 c. oatmeal
1 can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350. Mix first 4 ingredients together. Use 1/2 of mixture to form crust in bottom of pie plate. Press down firmly. Add cherries on top. Sprinkle other 1/2 of mix on top. Bake 30-40 minutes until brown on top.

This is what happens when I make bacon in my house. I actually have to hide it until the rest of the meal is made. It's embarrassing that my family can act so savage sometimes!

Ohhh...there's a can of cherry pie filling just waiting to be used. I buy the low sugar cherries from Walmart and they give cherry desserts the tartness I remember as a child with home canned ones.
