Happy Friday Everyone.......
Welcome! Join us as we peruse the free book links, share our selections and enjoy some conversation.
Thanksgiving is just two under weeks away. I know that many of you are thinking about your menu, your guest list and how to avoid the arguments between siblings and other family members. The question of which tablecloth to use and the appropriate china to coordinate is probably paramount in your thoughts. Or not! Maybe you have made reservations at a local restaurant or have been invited to someone else's home.
Whatever your plans may be, I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with family, special friends, maybe a little football and of course a great feast... Not necessarily in that order!
Whatever the case, this seems to be the perfect time for a little Thanksgiving humor to put all of your plans and worries in perspective.........
[ [ [ [ [ [ ----- Be Careful Who You Let Set The Table ----- ] ] ] ] ] ]
This is more embarrassing for my mother than for me because I wasn't quite four years old when it happened. My mother taught me to read when I was 3 years old (her first mistake). One day I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet doors was ajar. I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she was keeping napkins in the bathroom. Didn't they belong in the kitchen? Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts she told me that those were for special occasions. Now fast forward a few months. It's Thanksgiving Day, and my folks are leaving to pick up the pastor and his wife for dinner. Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone. Mine was to set the table. You guessed it! When they returned, the pastor came in first and immediately burst into laughter. Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling. Next came my father, who roared with laughter. Then came mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each place setting on the table with a "special occasion" napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top. I had even tucked the little tails in so they didn't hang off the edge. My mother asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter. "But Mom, you SAID they were for special occasions!!
[ [ [ [ [ [ [ ----- Church Bulletin ----- ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
The sentence in the Thanksgiving edition of my church bulletin intended to say "Thank you, Lord, for the many miracles we are too blind to see." But in what might have been a classic Freudian slip, the sentence read "Thank you, Lord, for the many miracles we are too blond to see."
Ummm, peanut butter and chocolate, my idea of heaven!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
6 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup natural chunky or smooth peanut butter (I use Skippy Natural)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease an 8 x 8" pan
Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
Cream the butter and peanut butter together until smooth. Beat in the sugars until combined.
Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
Stir in the flour mixture. Add the chocolate chips, stirring until combined.
Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for about 30- 32 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
