Yummy Things: a VERY easy cookie




So, on Christmas Eve I placed eight extremely large sweet potatoes into the oven about an hour and a half before my in-laws were to arrive from a 500 mile journey to see us. As I stood in the living room I heard a noise coming from the kitchen that sounded like someone had placed a metallic object into the microwave, causing it to arc. Except, I didn't have anything in the microwave.

I ran into the kitchen to see my oven glowing green. And with that electrical fire, my oven died. It's been a challenge to fix meals, bread, and treats and I think we've done a pretty good job. Tonight was no exception. Braised pork chops, fixed in the electric skillet, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. (The top of the stove still works.) Oh! and home-canned applesauce.

For dessert? These cookies that my quilting friend Norma brings regularly. I recently called her for the recipe, and thankfully, she was happy to share. Thanks, Norma! I think you'll be thanking her, too.

Yummy Things

1 pkg. Vanilla almond bark
1 c. Creamy peanut butter
3 c. Rice Krispies
2 c. Dry roasted peanuts
2 c. Mini marshmallows

Melt almond bark in a large microwave safe bowl. Stir in peanut butter until completely melted. Add dry ingredients and stir to coat completely. Drop by tablespoonful onto waxed paper. Cool completely, and enjoy.

well, good grief, glad your kitchen didn't go up in flames. Are you getting a new stove? I had a friend who managed without an oven for almost a year, but I don't think I could do it happily. . .
