Did I make the Jr. High School Peanut Chew bars that I blogged about earlier this week?
You bet your bippy I did!
(Remember when everyone used to go around betting their bippy? What exactly was a bippy anyway?)
The recipe proved itself.
The bars were exactly as I remember them tasting back when I was about 14 years old.
If only my metabolism was the same as a 14 year old was.
I had to slice up the jelly roll pan full and tuck most of the bars away in the freezer and made plans to foist them off on family and friends.
Otherwise I would have probably eaten the entire pan in a day or two.
My "bippy" would likely have enlarged itself tremendously!
So let's talk about smaller.
As in tiny dish gardens, which to me are even more exciting than tiny doll houses.
Isn't this one adorable?
One of our non-chain garden centers has staff that create dish gardens to die for.
If I had to live in a place without a garden I would snap up these dish gardens to sooth my garden loving soul.
The white pine planted desert scene was pretty big...it would almost cover the top of a card table.
I would of added a small ceramic jack rabbit to the scene.
Check out the pine cones!
So cute...unlike the pine cones that our 40 foot tall pine tree rains down on us by the bushel full each year.
The weather has been just perfect this week.
Just a tad brisk in the morning; just a tad warm by late afternoon.
I have made it a point to go walking in the morning while it is still cool and the sun is just rising above the snow jeweled mountains.
That bush towers over head and creates a dazzling display against the rich blue morning sky.
The bird song fills my ears as I walk and I once again am thankful for the beauty that surround me here in Utah.
