So, for you thorough readers, I mentioned in my last post that I was replacing something.
Not the boy (though we have our moments), the light fixture.
a cheapskate frugal, and can't bear to buy any more ten dollar light bulbs.
So thankful my dad is such a helpful guy, AND an electrician!
I owe him a batch of oatmeal cookies ;D
Yes, you may have noticed it's missing something.
One of the globes was already broken on arrival,
and Amazon is 'on it', so yay for them.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the nice, warm light :D
However, I realized I'd neglected to consider one thing...
This fixture is wider than our old fixture, and if we don't watch out...
I think Kerry is going to put some kind of stopper on the cabinet door, or I foresee replacing a great many more globes in the future. Oops.
No, really, it came with a broken globe! We didn't do it!
Also, the astute reader may remember Tate's charming plea for a friend's dessert recipe.
Well, we just made it and the kitchen smells so good I think I'm gaining weight just by the aroma.
Here he is melting the butter and giving me the side-eye...
Meanwhile, the dish is greased and floured.
Measuring the almond extract - lots of almond extract!
Yes, he knows how to dip-level-pour the flour.
And mixing it all up. Yes, we each licked a beater - yum!
And then sprinkling sliced almonds and sugar on top.
He may have gone a little heavy on the sugar, but with a whole cup of butter in the batter,
well... this isn't exactly health food ;D
And after about 30 minutes...
A tasty treat to bring to Easter tomorrow :D
And in case you're wondering about the device around his neck... that's his compilot. It's a blue-tooth device that works with his CI's. He was streaming music while he waited for the almond bars to finish baking. Love technology!
