mild with sunshine..
movie watching......I think I may have fallen asleep...not too exciting watching Margaret/Meryl
marketing.....I'm loving meal planning with all the summer selections of fruits and veggies
baking......always love baking...or cooking...both relax the heck out of me
as a surprise for the next person who stands with the door open looking "for something to eat"
roast chicken for a huge pot of tortilla soup for later in the week....and the freezer for "another day"
if I waited for a cold day in Southern California to eat soup....well, let's just say I wouldn't be eating soup
and a decades old recipe for "Coconut Chews" from my grandmother....she was a great cook
and the sweetest lady I've ever met...along with my Mom...her daughter...
does that mean it will trickle down to me??
here's the recipe.....hope you'll enjoy it
1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg, well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup grated coconut
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
melt butter in a heavy saucepan, stir in sugar until disolved
stir in egg and vanilla
add flour, baking powder and salt and coconut
pour batter in a 8 x 8 buttered baking dish and sprinkle nuts on top
bake at 350 for 25 minutes...cut into bars while still warm...
they are a bit sticky but shape easy...unless you decide to gobble them up right there and then...
see you tomorrow...just hours now until the dogs arrive.....I have to tell you how they came to be in Italy in the first place....lucky pups.
