KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

One of the things I miss the most about my kids being little is no more little league. All 3 of my boys played so we had a good 15 years of it. Now my grandson, Griffin is playing and it is so wonderful. The missed catches, running past the bases and watching the airplanes go by when they are playing in right field is just some of the fun.
Little brother Elliot, complete with stick in hand.....don't they always find a pointy one?
Tonight is Penn Oaks Guild night. We are hanging our challenge "Coffee or Tea and Me". I can't wait to see what everyone has created. We always get a good turnout. Come back tomorrow and I will post pictures.
I am bring a snack...Toffee Squares
This is an awesome Bed and Breakfast, called Angel of the Sea, that also has a cookbook. If you ever go down the shore, come to Cape May, NJ and stay here! I think it may be impossible during the summer but it is very cool. Lots of Victorian things and a great breakfast, just steps from the beach.
I will share the recipe with you.
1 c butter (not a diet dessert!) 1 c br sugar
1 egg yolk 1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour 1/4 tsp salt
1-1/2 c of chocolate chips 1/2 c nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Combine butter, sugar, egg yolk and br sugar.
Blend in flour and salt.
Spread dough in greased 9x13 pan and bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown.
Immediately pour chocolate chips on top until soft and spread evenly over entire pan. Sprinkle with nuts. Cut bars while still warm. Enjoy!
