It sucks getting older. I know that on the inside I’m a better person than the, "young" Steph, but, well, case in point…
I was in the shower this morning and thought of a really good thing to blog about.
It would be short, to the point and was very witty…
Don’t ask me what it was, because the only thing I can remember is that it would be short, to the point and very witty. I’ve been trying to remember what it was all day. Pfffft….
I have Jan and Dean playing. In keeping with the ‘car’ theme. I got to see them in concert during the early 80’s. I love their music, and the Beach Boys.
At the start of the concert they had a running joke. They started it with saying, what shall we play? Then one of them named… "Fun, Fun, Fun" and the other one would say, "Hey, that’s not ours it’s the Beach Boys!"
They did that throughout the concert, and played both their songs and some of the Beach Boy’s. I guess I wasn’t the only one who would get them mixed up. lol
Here’s hoping your memory is working better than mine, and the rest of your week is great. BIG HUGS, Steph
P.S., I got a phone call this morning. The girl’s basketball teams are heading out of town, to a tournament this weekend. They leave Friday morning. I’ve been asked to make them one of their favorite treats to take along for the ride. (I make them for when the girls are playing fast pitch softball too.)
So, since I’m making them, I thought I’d share the recipe. WARNING! They are very rich, and personally I can’t even eat a whole piece, but, they seem to be irresistible to kids and teens.
Crispy Chocolate Log
1 package (approx 10 oz) mini marshmallows (I think the pkg is 10.5 oz)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup creamy style peanut butter
5 1/2 cups rice crispies cereal
1 1/3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
Line a 15x10x1 pan with wax paper, and either lightly butter the wax paper, or spray it with butter flavored Pam. Measure 5 and 1/2 cups rice crispies cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the marshmallows, butter, and peanut butter. Cover and microwave on high, 2 minutes. Stir until all is well blended. Pour marshmallow mixture over the rice crispies, and stir until they are well coated and evenly mixed.
Pour out onto the buttered/sprayed wax paper. Lightly butter your fingers and press the rice crispies mixture into a large flat rectangle (size of the pan).
In another microwave safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove and stir until smooth and spreadable. If 2 minutes isn’t enough, try another 20 seconds, but be careful to not over cook them.
Spread the chip mixture onto the rice crispies rectangle to within 1 inch of the edge. Starting with the long side, roll up "jelly roll" style. Peeling wax paper away while rolling. Place seam side down on a serving plate, and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Cut into 1 inch thick round slices. Yields approx 15/20 slices. ENJOY!
