Happy Birthday Paula

The chocolate cake was yummy (Full of butter and chocolate. Made you want to go to confession). Thanks to Barb.

The stick people birthday card was exceptional. The company was noisy. The dog was adorable. The flowers were beautiful. The sisters were crazy. The pictures were many.

Just a usual Maloney birthday.

Granola bars, part deux

Put in large bowl and microwave to soften and combine:
3/4 cup honey (use 1/2 cup honey or maybe brown sugar?)
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup apple sauce (use 1 cup to hold together better)

Incorporate dry ingredients into wet ingredients:
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
3 cups rice krispies
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Press into 9 X 13 inch greased pan.

Put in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

They were good but too sweet. Next time I'll reduce honey to 1/2 cup and increase applesauce to 1 cup. They also were too crumbly so the additional applesauce should hold them together better.

Happy 70th birthday Maureen!

What a lovely birthday party for Fred's cousin Maureen. A chance to see all the cousins and catch up. And the best part is that Maureen didn't suspect a thing. Good job cousins.
