What to Do On a Lazy Winter Day


I decided to bake these sweet treats to cheer up my very overdue daughter and her family who are also battling nasty colds. There's something about going past the "due date" that makes every single day thereafter seem twice as long.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Brownies

2 Cups flour
2 Tsp. baking powder
1/2 Tsp. salt
1 Cup peanut butter
2/3 Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup dark brown sugar
4 Eggs
1 Package of chocolate chips
2 Tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 9 x 13 pan. Mix together the peanut butter, butter and sugars. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add mixed dry ingredients. Add vanilla and stir in the chips. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. When done, a soft imprint will remain. Do not over-bake.

Let's hope this gets the ball rolling!

A Rafter of Turkeys

There is definitely something to be said for looking out the window! Today we were greeted by a rafter of turkeys. I wasn't sure what a group of turkeys was called so had to look it up. I guess they can also be called a gang or a gobble of turkeys. Either way, it was such fun watching them move cautiously across our land!

is...well...wonderful! I'm amazed at how quickly I've adjusted to it all. The downside....if there is that I'm rather lazy these days! I can spend all morning reading and looking out the window at sites like this. We've had a spell of frozen fog the last two days and it's absolutely breathtaking!

My New Year's Resolution should have been to get up and get going!
