When Callie isn't sleeping, she's getting into everything. I used to think she was my calm, easy-going kitty. These days you might find her curled up in the bathroom sink as above or maybe stretched out on top of the refrigerator. All the kitties have been acting up more than normal lately. Do they know something we don't know? I wonder!
BG and I had a romantic evening. We got to hang out at Menards and Lowe's and look at.....are you ready?... toilets and vanities!! How exciting is that??? lol!! Well, they are necessary items for the New Project. The bathroom is tiny, so a 30 inch vanity is needed. The one already there is dilapidated.
We're still hard at work on The Project. It's starting to look better. BG and I are starting to look older! We want to get as much done as we can before winter sets in. It's supposed to be in the 70's this weekend, so you know where we will be!
Speaking of winter, we've been hearing that 10 inches of snow may arrive by November 15. I hope that prediction is very wrong. I am sooo not looking forward to winter. If I had my druthers, it would stay just like it is until spring! Well, maybe just a wee bit of snow is nice around Christmas.
I've just got to share a recipe with you because the fact is that it is one of my new favorite treats! It is easy to make and oh! so
delicious. Try it...you'll like it!
APPLE NUT BARS
6 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup nuts, coarsely chopped (I always use pecans)
1 medium apple, peeled and coarsely grated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Stir brown sugar into the melted butter. When the mixture is cooled, beat eggs, one at a time, into the sugar mixture.
Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and add to the
mixture, stirring until smooth. Stir in pecans and apple. Mix well. It is best to grate the apple last so it won't turn brown before you are ready to add it.
Spread into a greased 9 inch square pan and bake at 350 degrees
for 25-30 minutes or until done. Cool completely in pan, then cut into bars. Serve with whipped topping or ice cream, if desired. Yummy!
