Baking Monday

housewife
It was a hit! I found this recipe HERE and saved it for baking Monday!
caramel crack

ingredients:

2 sticks melted butter

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 cups flour

2 cups oatmeal

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 bag of chocolate chips

1 jar of caramel topping (think smucker’s)


1. preheat oven to 325 degrees, & grease a 9×13″ baking pan.

2. combine the brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, baking soda & salt. add melted butter & mix until “crumbly”.

3. press HALF of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, & bake for about 15 minutes.

4. remove from oven & spread the ENTIRE bottle of caramel topping on top, followed by the the ENTIRE bag of chocolate chips, & then finally sprinkle the remaining prepared dough mixture over the top.

5. continue baking for an additional 15 minutes or so, until it’s a light golden brown.

6. once you’ve removed the caramel bars from the oven you need to let them cool & chill until the chocolate is set…. then it’s time to cut them & start feasting.

Helping

“It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.” ~Author Unknown
Hubba Bubba designed, had printed, and put up the foundation banners for our school. The foundation is a charity for our school that helps pay 5 positions(support staff). I think the signs turned out very wonderful. I think Hubba Bubba is wonderful!

We let the kids play awhile at the school and then we took the rascals to see, “Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs”. And for dinner? Pasta and meatballs!

Soccer Saturday

Today I had the pleasure of watching two out of three games. First we went to Joe’s game. It seems Joe has discovered that there is a ball invovled in soccer. I’m not getting my hopes up that he will remember for next week, but it was delightful to watch him play this week!

Next, I went to Tony’s game. Dad was coaching Nick’s game at the very same time so Joe and I got to watch the big guys play.

Tonys game lasted a little longer than Nick’s, so Dad and Nick joined us at Tony’s game. I caught a little brother bonding at the park, awww the good stuff.
