In many countries throughout the world, November 1st is observed as All Saint’s Day. I grew up with this tradition in what was then Czechoslovakia. After I moved to America, I learned that here and in some other parts of the world, it is October 31st, Halloween that is celebrated with its interesting activities like kids trick-or-treating or adults attending costume parties. And there is pumpkin carving, and contests in pumpkin carving, and decorating with pumpkins around houses.

How often it happens that you want to do something and it gets delayed and delayed? No, it’s not procrastination, it just happens. Like my exploration of the many different varieties of whole grains. The other day this trend finally got broken.
Don’t you like it when something good comes from something bad? When I learned that to renew my almost expired Slovak passport I needed to submit my application in person in New York, I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. My first reaction was “Oh, no, I don’t need a trip now, my life is already too busy with work, and the timing is simply not good!”
After a long absence from my blog, I hope my presence will become more regular after I settle into the routine of the new school year. Developing the routine is taking a little bit longer than usual – more about this in a future post. Today I present this easy and wonderful way of preparing apples under a crispy sweet crust of rolled oats. I adapted the recipe from The Whole Foods Market Cookbook. You can use almost any type of fruit, or you can mix different fruits together.
