Smores Bars

smores bars 009I’m looking out the window… It’s raining.

Le Roi is sitting on my shoulder like a parrot… Maybe we can be pirates for Halloween.

I’ve been kinda just laying in bed. This happens a lot when I get way to many days off in a row.

Have you noticed yet I don’t have a big social life?

I miss my mother.

I made smores bars to kinda cure that.

I’m stuck in a rut!

smores bars 002Among many things my mother made these when I was younger. This is when homemade goodies were allowed to be inside schools.

Not like this cured my rut but it helped.

it’s easy peasy lemon squeezey.

smores bars 004I’m sitting here with a cat on my shoulder, listening to  The Wallflowers (oh Jakob Dylan you’re cute but you’re a pompous jerk because of your daddy), eating gooey smores bars drinking hot cocoa… I mean this could be an issue I’m not really sure yet I guess we will find out.

I’m ready for fall. I’m always ready for fall. It’s my favorite season!

Is it weird I associate smores with the fall? Maybe, since most people associate them with summer.

But when I think of smores I think of bonfires, cozy times, and hoodies. I mean who wants to be around a fire in 100 degree weather and heat index of 100%? Not me that’s just god awful

Anyway I’m going to stop rambling because that is what this post has become and post this recipe.

I’m going to the museum tomorrow so maybe I’ll get out of this rut!
