Peanuts and I have a lot of good memories. My best friend growing up was a huge fan of Snoopy and I got sucked into the world of Snoopy. She and I even went to Snoopy themed Halloween parties. My best memory of all time actually comes from “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” That’s the movie that was playing when Mad Scientist and I officially got engaged. It was at the Corn Maze in Upstate NY. They were running a series of outdoor movie nights. Kids of all ages surrounded fire pits with extra long marshmallow roasting sticks and a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in hands while they keenly watched the movie after a long day at the corn maze & good pumpkin picking. It was fairly chilly evening in mid-October, yet utterly romantic.
Occasionally, I can be very grumpy in the morning. I’m sure I’m not the only one. One morning, I seriously was in a foul mood. I left for work without saying “I love you” to Mad Scientist. By mid-morning, I was feeling uncomfortable just because I should have at least told him I loved him even if my morning was worse than my hair-do.
Every year, I try to come up with new items to bring to a super bowl party but end up making my famous Bread Pudding. I’ve gotten many compliments on it and shared the recipe with many people.
This year, I wanted something different. Quick but fun, yummy but crowd-pleaser… short list of requirements. While thinking (hard), I ran into this awesome recipe from Kellog’s website – Chocolate Nutty Mini-Football Treats. Oh perfect. It was the first time for me to make Rice Krispie Treats. Mad Scientist was a little apprehensive because… who knew it comes out like a shape of football, and is it going to taste like the rice krispie treats he grew up with? Pressure was definitely on.
On another note, making was definitely fun. The only item I skipped was the peanut butter; knowing that there will be friends with nut allergies. And the photo is the outcome.
