A) Matthew popped in the movie Serendipity ( a terrible movie) on Saturday night.
B) A sale at the grocery store led me to last evening's birthday celebration meal.
I tend to always buy green bell peppers, because they are cheaper. But really, I prefer red bell peppers. So, a sale at our lovely local Rainbow Foods, led me to Sunday night's menu: Chili and Cornbread.
I know, I know, it's a repeat from my very first blog. I did add a little turkey to the chili, and a little honey to the cornbread batter. But, never fear. I still have a recipe for you, oh blog-reading faithful.
Matthew and I spent our Sunday afternoon singing in a lovely concert at our church. On Friday, in rehearsal, our fabulous music director, Scott, asked for volunteers to bring bars to said concert. Before I knew it, my hand was in the air, jumping at such a blog-worthy chance.
I decided not to venture outside my comfort zone, and went straight-up Norwegian, Lutheran with my bars.
Grandma Houglum's "other" bars, The Ones with the Marshmallow Creme
1 package brownie mix (you could make from scratch, but why?)
1 jar marshmallow creme
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
I baked the brownies according to the package instructions. Luckily, this recipe requires you to spread on the marshmallow creme while the brownies are still hot. Remember my premature frosting tendencies? I spread on the marshmallow creme and set the pan aside. In a double boiler I melted the chocolate chips, and then the peanut butter. I stirred in the rice krispies and patted the mixture on top of the brownie gooey goodness.
I give you the Lutheran bar, at its best.
