Can you guess what I'm watching right now?
How did you know?
Probably because I've only been watching the Olympics for the past 6 days. Sorry, that is probably all I'm going to talk about for the next week.
Anyways, whenever I watch the bar routine my arm pits hurt. Holy bejeebers. Also, talk about strong. Let's not talk about how many pull-ups I can't do not to mention twirling my entire body around a bar.
Also, Tim Dagget, I am really kind of tired of him saying, "Oh, this is catastrophic." and "This is devasting." and "She needs to be perfect and that was not perfect." For crying out loud...
In other news, I had my same male yoga instructor
that has the sing-song voice. During the very relaxing, peaceful, eyes closed portions at the beginning and end of class, he had us chant, "Ooooohhhhhmmmm."
Let's just say I didn't keep a straight face, nor was it relaxing. The whole time I was thinking, "Thank goodness my sister is not here with me because there would definitely be audible laughter.
Finally, I worked on my desperate housewife skills the other night because it was my turn for treats at Bible study. Our house was fuull of sugar. I loved it. My husband shook his head in disgust.
P.S. I know if treats are great if my husband thinks they are disgusting. His sweet tooth is not refined.. or even existent.
I mentioned that I made pizza bars. Please see below. You may also call them 'cavity bars' or 'diabetes bars'. All of these names apply. I call them delicious. And easy to make.
Pizza Bars- Makes a jelly roll pan of bars
Cream together the brown sugar and butter. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and oatmeal. Spread with fingers into a jelly roll pan. (**This will be very crumbly and you'll have to use your fingers to squish it together.) Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. As soon as it comes out of the oven spread the caramel topping over the entire crust. (**I ended up using the entire jar but I'm not sure if this was a 'small' jar or 'large' jar.) It doesn't matter. Sugar is all that matters. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and the M & M's. Melt the almond bark or white chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over the top. Refrigerate until almond bark is hard or overnight. Enjoy!
- 1 cup brown sugar

- 1/2 tsp salt

I was really planning on bringing the other on vacation but they got demolished. Darn. Oh well.
Also made some of these... I didn't think they were quite as good but I used a box mix of sugar cookie dough which I think was my problem. I'm going to perfect this recipe using homemade dough and post it later.
