  • 8 small Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin butter
  • 1/2 (14 ounce) package pumpkin quick bread mix
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • sweetened whipped cream (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the apples and pumpkin butter. Spread evenly in a 8 or 9 inch square baking dish. Pour the pumpkin bread mix into a bowl, and cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the apples.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the apples are tender enough to insert a fork. Serve warm with whipped cream.

Productive Congress Article excerpt below.

“The two other landmark acts of this session were the health care overhaul, a giant step toward universal coverage that had eluded presidents back to Franklin Roosevelt if not Teddy Roosevelt, and the Wall Street accountability act.

Obama has also signed into law at least a dozen other pieces of legislation of significance. They include:
--Making college loans more affordable.
--The Cash for Clunkers program that helped rejuvenate the auto industry.
--New consumer protections for credit card users.
--Making it easier for women to challenge pay discrimination.
--Increasing federal regulation of tobacco products.
--Cracking down on waste in Pentagon weapons acquisition.
--Making attacks based on sexual orientation a federal hate crime.
--Giving businesses tax incentives to hire unemployed workers.
--Tax credits for first-time homeowners.”

stood by his side, flashbacks
to the ballot shredder called Florida
joining in on the fun with sweet Dorothy
skipping on the sticky brick road whispering
Brownbacks, Bushes and Bewares, oh my
