Dinner Idea

As I have said before, Sunday dinner is special to me.  Last week, the menu was:

--Corn on the Cob (from the Farmer's Market) :  I like to add a little sugar to the water.  Get it to a good boil and throw the corn in.  I put the lid on and cook for about 7 minutes.  Salt, Pepper, & Spray Butter and it's divine.
--Salad :  From a bag.  If I had my choice I would have had Jean's 3 Lettuce Salad....My Favorite!
--Cantaloupe, Pineapple, & Strawberries:  Can't beat fresh fruit.  Mmmm.
--Savory Rice
--My standard dinner rolls : Rhodes Rolls sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and salad supreme
--Kabobs :  I marinated my chicken chunks with my Aunt Kathy's Marinade.  Then I cut up some onions,  and green & red peppers I got from the Farmer's Market and added them to the skewer.

THEN, on to dessert.  The most anticipated course.

--Fruit Pizza - yummy.

I'm loving Cherry!

This is my new favorite book!  It is a beautiful cherry checkered fabric that I have laminated with vinyl to be spill resistant.  To complete it's stylish look, it is pulled together with a beautiful red bow tied up the spine.

TYPO - Blondies

I just realized I have a typo on the books I sold at the Farmer's Market recently.  If you happen to check my site - Please update this.  It will make a HUGE difference.  The recipe printed says 1/4 c. butter, but it should be 3/4 c. butter.

This is a new recipe, so for everyone that doesn't have this.  You'll want to add this.  It's a yummy one!

Blonde Brownies

3/4 c. butter
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 pkg. (each) choc. & butterscotch chips
1/2 c. chopped almonds (optional)

Mix melted butter and brown sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Add dry ingredients and mix just to combine.  Stir in chocolate & butterscotch chips and nuts.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool completely and cut into small bars.  

Sorry for the typo!!  Hopefully, it won't happen again.  

Happy Cooking!
