rice crispies...

chelsea and i got a little crafty last night.
we found some marshmallows and was like hmmmm.
what can we make with marshmallows?
so of course the next question was... well have you made them before?
no i responded- the same time she responded.
so we decided to go to a cookbook.
after that plan failed we had a breakthrough.
the marshmallow bag ::of course:: had the recipe.
so off to food lion we go to buy crispy rice cereal.
we got home and began making our delicious late night snack.
::let me add. late night is now 9:30::
anyway 24hours later... the rice crispy treats are gone.

they were so so so delicious.
so my first cooking experiment ended brilliantly. :)

let me add a few things about Duke orientation...
going great. long boring meetings, but when i remember i am getting paid to sit here, i brighten up and put a smile on my face. :) i also found out today my boss is totally fine with me leaving for three days to go to paula's wedding. whenever that may be.?!?!.
such a HUGE relief. im so so so excited for her and pumped that she is moving on with this next step in her life. i know its perfect and exactly what she and chad should do.
totally them. totally what they need. exactly what God wants for them.

so yeah. work is good. ive met a couple of fun girls so we sit in the back and laugh and have fun- while still paying attention to the amazing speakers that come through. haha.
no really. its been good. and it will last until friday... then a great weekend free!

thats all for now... off to read. watch tv. and go to bed. oh how painful waking up early is!!

love and peace

so being the wonderful kinda of mom person that I am, I provide the following recipe, for the thousands of bloggers who now want to head out to their friendly food lion and make their own rice krispie squares... enjoy!!!


1/4 cup butter
1 (10 oz., about 40) pkg. regular marshmallows or 3 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal

In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat.
Stir in the Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal coating them well with the melted marshmallow mixture.

Using a buttered or silicone spatula, press the mixture evenly into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan which has been buttered or sprayed with non-stick spray or lined with wax paper.

Cut into squares when the mixture cools.

Makes 24 squares.


Microwave butter with marshmallows on high setting for 2 minutes in a microwave safe mixing bowl. Stir together when melted. Microwave again on high for 1 additional minute. Stir in cereal, mixing until well coated. Press into pan as above.
