Life really can be a picnic!

Everyone loves a picnic! This blog is about some of the things I love the most, and the term "picnic" just about covers them all. First of all, a picnic has to include food; simple food that is easy to fix. Next, you need someplace fun or different to visit; a nice, peaceful location. And of course, you always need to take along a good book to read and a well-used quilt to spread everything out on. So, there you have it! Easy recipes, good books, fun quilts along with some interesting, down-to-earth places to visit. You can even take your family or a friend or two if you want.

Busy Summer

"What's hard by the yard, is a cinch by the inch."~ Anonymous

     This has been one busy summer and it's not slowing down anytime soon.  I can't believe it's already half over.  I was able to go to a couple of quilt shops when I was in San Antonio.  The first one was called Sew Special Quilts and the second one was called Las Colchas.


     Here's one of those great summer recipes because it's a really good treat and really easy to make.

S’more Krispy Treats
(Recipe by Chef in Training)
¼ cup butter
1 (10 oz.) bag regular marshmallows
1 box of Golden Graham cereal
1-2 cups chocolate chips

In a large pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add marshmallows and keep stirring until the marshmallows completely melt and you get a marshmallow sauce.  Remove from heat.  Add Golden Graham cereal and stir until they are all well coated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Grease a 9x13” pan and press S’mores mixture down evenly in pan. Let cool.
It is best to use frozen chocolate chips so they hold their shape better.  Room temperature chocolate chips will still work, they will just melt.


     Here's another book by Josi Kilpack.  I loved this story because I couldn't figure out how all the issues could be worked out to everyone's satisfaction and somehow it does.
