Hi everyone. This has been a tough year it seems. So many natural and not so natural disasters affecting so many families. I am thinking of everyone in Oklahoma and hoping they receive the help they need both practically and emotionally.
Once again, this tragedy reminds me of how important it is to spend time with family and friends and make the most of our time with them whether it is at meal time, car time, bus time, or before bed time.
Maybe you will make this tasty treat using ingredients lying around the kitchen. Enjoy your day 🙂
