Taking a Vote

OK, so for Mothers' Day I got a 5lb. bag of caramels.

I love caramels, but eating 5lbs. is NOT a good idea for any one person. Not even if she shares. Not even if she decides to try and eat just one caramel per day until they are gone. Which would bring us into February 2014.


I've decided to make things with them. Things with caramel. I'm taking a vote. What do you think of these?

Salty Caramel Oat Bars

Samoa Bark

Salted Caramel Butter Bars

I've made these before but they were so good Caramel Stuffed Krispie Treats

I really really could us your opinions here. And yes, I also found apple caramel tarts and things like that. And yes, if you have other ides, let me know, just remember that I have actual caramels to use up and can't be bothered making sauces from sugar because even though I can do it that actually isn't the point to this exercise.

I kind of feel like making all four of these and then having a taste test, but I would need to know 20 people who would like to participate. Because I can't eat all that myself.

Happy Mothers' Day

Today is a day to celebrate mothering, from all kinds of mothers, my own included.

I love you Mom!

But today I'm sending a special shout-out to those who can decipher cards like the one from Nate. Which really has to do with a pair of googly eyes he got from school during his music concert, and absolutely nothing else. But still had be doubled up trying not to laugh.

We were on a break!

OK, I admit, I've been horrible at blogging. I mean, I promise I'll write every day, and for a week I almost do, and then I just kind of drop off the radar and I tell myself I'm collecting material, saving it up so I can have another really good week.

But then, at the end of the week, I still have nothing good to write about, and I haven't even taken any new pictures.

Ah, well.

I did begin this year saying I was going to post less, so it's not that, bad, right?
