Old Fashioned Blueberry Crisp with Amaretto and Almonds

Cook's Notes: Blueberries are superstars as they contain the unique, phenol-like antioxidants pterostilbene and resveratrol. Blueberries are also a very good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, fiber and copper.

Wondering what Foxie Roxie is doing today? She was just starting her lawn mowing when I passed by her.  
I missed getting an attire photo yesterday. But I did see she was wearing a yellow slicker and hat to protect herself from the rain and cold.
