Three things to make that really work--I promise

1.  Crockpot Applesauce Cake: the flavours of autumn in your slow cooker.  I saw the recipe first on Grocery Cart Challenge, but the original source is Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann.  You can also find it posted (and credited) here.  Leave out the walnuts if you don't like them; the egg is also optional. (I was out of eggs and tried it without, and it worked fine.) Not too big, not too sweet, good for breakfast.

2.  A Year of Slow Cooking's "What my kids like" overnight oatmeal recipe.  (The second half of the post.)  Our apples kept their shape instead of disappearing into the oatmeal; but I like it better that way anyway.

3.  A no-sew doll tutu made from dollar-store tulle and a piece of ribbon.  (We found tulle on rolls last year with the Christmas wraps at the dollar store.) You can find the same idea, both doll- and girl-sized, on various websites, but this tutorial (if a bit long) gives the basics.
