Play Date Saturday

My plans for the day were shot. I woke with my left eye bothering me. Sinus? Not sure. I had a dental procedure yesterday that may have caused some of the issue. After speaking with my dentist I found out he’d had to cut a little gum tissue, but said he didn’t think it would cause anything to effect my eye. Thought this explains the soreness and the swelling in my lower jaw area. So I spent the day groggy and trying to get my son to write his two papers for school. Here’s hoping tomorrow is much better.

How was  your day?

What Are You Reading Thursday

I’m once again in edits or galleys. Therefore I’m reading my own writing again. Working on pre-galleys for Because of Rebecca that will be released sometime in 2013. I’ve also read a partial of a friends next release and I’m awaiting the second half. My son finished the Inheritance Cycle series and he isn’t sure what he’ll read next. What re you reading now?

Rumor Has It Wednesday

UT won the Kathie Lee and Hoda College Challenge and the TODAY show will be broadcast live from campus on October 1. Way to go VOLS!!

Apparently UT Frat boys have a new thing “butt chugging” beer enemas. It has made National news and CNN is on campus at Fraternity Row today. Not the way the University wants to be Nationally known.

 

 

Recipe Tuesday

My teen cracked me up Friday night when he came into the kitchen and found I had made Rice Krispy Treats. I had set the pan on the counter as I was finishing up dinner. He wanted to know did I want him to stick them in the oven to bake now that I had taken out the baked ravioli and rolls. I was like “no, you don’t bake them. They are done.” He tried to argue with me that my mother baked hers when she made them.

So for anyone who might be under the misconception because of that silly commercial where the mom pretends to have slaved for hours in the kitchen making these goodies and throws flower in her face before carrying a plate into her family, here is the proper way to make them. No baking required.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 package fresh regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal

In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat ( very important or your cereal will get tough). Add the rice krispies and stir well until coated. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into a 13x9x2 buttered baking pan. Cool and cut into squares.

I think I got two and my son finished the pan off the next day.

I don’t know about you, but I loved these as a kid. They were a favorite treat at Halloween too because we’d get baggies full when we’d go to my grandmother’s house. That and popcorn balls. No one made better popcorn balls than my mamaw.

 

Fall is Here!

O welcome thou Fall

They cool breeze that bloweth…

Yes it is here. You can feel it in the air. The leaves are changing. The sun is setting earlier and earlier each day. The temp is dipping lower and lower each night.   It’s time to say good bye to shorts, sandals, capris, and Tees.  It’s time to say hello again to jeans, sweaters, cardigans, jackets, coats, boots… you get the picture.
