Rain and a Recipe

This morning we received 2" of rain! Let me tell you, this is a cause for celebration! The arena's flooded, the dirt tank just outside the yard is full and puddles abound! Woo! Hoo! I guess, unless you live in a desert, rain's not a big deal, but around here we measure it by the drop. And this could not have come at a better time! This country will come alive with this moisture. Praise God for His perfect timing!

Today I wanted to share this with you:

O'Henry Bars - yummy, yum, yum! These could not be easier and I guarantee rave reviews!
O'Henry Bars
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 c Karo
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c peanut butter
2 c Rice Krispies
1 c peanuts
1 c chocolate chips
Melt butter in a medium sized pot and add Karo, brown sugar, and peanut butter. Melt and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies and peanuts. Stir until combined and pour into a 9x11" pan sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and spread when melted. Refrigerate for a bit and serve. That's it!
I'll bring these to Cowboy Church next week so those of you attending can try them. This batch will be long gone, but I'll whip up another one...because I love ya'll!
DH and Grandpa were sneaking a bit during breakfast this morning. I halfheartedly teased them, but DH said that it constituted as a breakfast food because it had cereal and nuts and peanut butter... for protein. Sigh. That's male logic for you. It's no use.

Yum, that recipe looks great! Thanks for the comment on my pin cushion. No pattern, I made it up as I went along, but it's pretty much a top and a bottom sewn together with a strip of fabric. Hope this helps! Oh and yay for your rain!!

Oh, yum. I gotta stop reading your dessert recipes... they make me hungry! :-) If you have a moment, you should stop by my blog, I FINALLY put up a post with the cowgirl quilt I just finished. :-) I'm originally from Portland, and now live in Eastern Washington Desert area... so, while I appreciate the rain because I don't have to water now, I still get a little depressed because it throws me back to the emotional state that nine months straight of rain can put you in. Ha! :-)

Hi Chicken Willow! Thanks for stopping by! You really should make a pattern for those and sell the patterns to quilt stores or make and sell the pin cushions - they are just too cute! And thanks for celebrating the rain too!
