Pear and Apple Crumble

For the third day of cooking with fruits, in the Blogging Marathon, I made this delicious crumble combining apple and pear. I have become so lazy nowadays. I tend to prepare for any event on the final day and at the last minute I blog about it. Though I am not missing any of the events, I am making my life very hectic with this type of activity. I need to plan every thing beforehand to avoid such situations. For the past two days, I am sort of depressed. Our jet pump, the only source of water stopped working and I have been living on the stored water for the past two days. After so many calls to the electrician, he is still busy and I am still depressed. It is raining heavily and from morning there was a power shut down. So all my plans to make the crumble in the morning crashed heavily. I thought of skipping the post today but I didn't want to do it. And finally power was retained at 3 pm and I started working on my crumble. It is quite easy to prepare the crumble. With very little water left, I have accumulated a pile of dishes in the sink and this crumble added some more to it. It took just 45 minutes to get the crumble out of the oven and finally I am enjoying the rain with the hot crumble. I am missing out on the ice cream but it is OK. After 2 days, I am little happy now for the crumble turned out delicious. The top was crunchy and the inside was gooey. I thought of adding chocolate chips to the topping but while working on the topping, I completely forgot about it. Next time I will be adding some chocolate chips to make it more delicious...
