DH ran into someone at the sale barn he hadn't seen in over 20 years and he said the fella remembered what I made and do I still make this and that and he talked about how I would make donuts the last morning of works, and did I still make those rolls with the meat and potatoes and green chile in them? I don't consider myself an outstanding cook, but I have to admit that it's kind of nice to hear guys compliment what I make when they run into DH. DH climbed into the truck and told me I was famous. LOL. I'm glad I wasn't there because I would have been embarrassed, but its very sweet.
This last time we worked, we had a new guy on the crew and after day three, I heard him pipe up: "Darn! Do ya'll eat like this all the time?!" Um. No. Our 50 yr old waistlines won't allow it. :)
I served this to the crew recently and then I had 4 bites for breakfast the following morning. :)
Buster Bar Dessert
1 stick butter, melted
1 15 oz pkg Oreo cookies, crushed
1/2 gal vanilla ice cream, softened
1 1/2 C peanuts
1 13 oz can evaporated milk
1 stick butter
2/3 C chocolate chips
2 C powdered sugar
*Mix 1 stick melted butter and crushed cookies well and pat into 9 x 13" buttered pan. Set aside. Put the softened ice cream into a bowl and mix in the peanuts. Spread this over the cookie crust. Put in the freezer until set. In a medium sized pan, combine milk, butter, chocolate chips, powdered sugar, and bring to a boil. Boil for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over the ice cream and return to the freezer to set. I make this the day before I plan to serve it so that it will be properly frozen.
Note: The original recipe called for margarine, but I don't keep margarine here so I have substituted butter, but I have used both through the years.
