To all my readers who have wondered what has happened to me ...
I am doing well and had no intention of being away from this site for so long.
I got all caught up with projects that I wanted to do
around the house and yard and before I knew it the weeks were
sliding by quite smoothly and I was not blogging.
It almost felt like I was being truant in doing my homework as in
school days. But it also felt like I didn't have any homework which
was a good feeling.
Quite often though, I caught myself missing the connections so here I am once more.
I shared these treats with a young growing lad. Later his mother told me
he wanted her to ask for the recipe because, 'they are so good!'
It is a great summer snack that can be stored in the freezer for
the hot days like the ones we are having in Alberta.
