Here are the three of us at Megan's wedding. Casey is on the left, center-well, the bride, and me on the right. It seems so odd that they are closer in age to my daughter than to me.
I was in charge of dessert for tonight's dinner. First I overslept. I had planned on making turtle brownies. I woke up at 4 and had to be at Casey's at 6. No time to make them from scratch from the recipe over at Sunday Baker. Plan two: make them with a brownie mix and jzuzz them up. Nope-the mix I just bought was gone. Plan three: make some bars with a cake mix and evaporated milk. Yah, the can expired in July-why I even had any is beyond me as I normally don't have anything in my repertoire that calls for it. It is now 4:30, I have yet to shower and am ready to cry. I spy the Heath toffee bits and remember Cathy's post over at Noble Pig on the cookies she made after an especially trying day. Since I don't have her permission to reprint it here, I will show the pictures. You will have to trek on over to her site (she is in my blog list, but I know most of you know her site-it's awesome!) for the recipe, but they were a HUGE hit for dessert. I left them with Casey; she said she was bringing them to work tomorrow for her 16 hour shift. There may be some sharing in the rig.
Come to Mama
Ummm, I have no idea where that one went, burp.
The only change I made was I used butter flavor Crisco, as baking cookies with butter never works well for me. I think it is the oven-may need to be re-calibrated, but am hoping a new one shows up soon. Until that time, I will continue my shortening procedure until then.
Happy Valentine's Everyone! Oh no, I forgot his card!
