Savoring summer’s end…

Traditionally school where we live resumes after Labor Day weekend.

In my mind that weekend has always been summer’s last hurrah.

So, don’t make me think about back to school, fall décor, Halloween, or any of autumn’s festivities ‘til September 6th.  I’ll just dig in my heels and tell you, there’s still some summer to be savoring…

{Cut 1 cup cold butter into 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups oats, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder.  Spread half of crumb mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish.}
