Requested Recipes

Last week, I had a little get together with some friends. It was a lot of fun to do, especially since our new house is a bit more suited to entertaining. I do enjoy having people over and making great food for them to enjoy. A few people wanted some recipes, so here they are.

Rhubarb Torte

Crust:
1 cup flour
2 T. sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup margarine

Combine ingredients. Press into a greased 8X10 pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 325.

Filling:
2 1/4 cup chopped rhubarb
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 T. flour
3 egg yolks

Cook ingredients until thick. Pour over crust

Topping:
3 eggs whites
6 T. sugar
1/4 t. cream of tartar

Beat together until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling, Brown 10 15 minutes at 325.

Heavenly Bars
 These were very popular bars in Edgerton, so I made sure and got the recipe before we moved away.

1 pkg (4 serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix.
2 cups brown sugar
2 sups peanut butter
1 cup corn syrup
4 cups Rice Krispies
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cups butter or margarine, melted
about 6 T. of milk
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter

Measure dry pudding mix and divide into two equal portions and set aside.
1st Layer: In a large sauce pan combine brown sugar, 2 cups peanut butter, corn syrup, and ONE portion of the pudding mix. Stir over low heat until combined. (Mixture may stiffen.) Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Press into a lightly greased 15x10 pan. Refrigerate until firm.
2nd Layer: Stir together powdered sugar and the other portion of pudding mix. Add melted butter. Stir in milk 1 Tablespoon at a time until you reach a thick frosting consistency. Spread over 1st layer and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until just firm.
3rd Layer: Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together until smooth. Spread evenly over 2nd layer. Chill until set.
These keep the best if refrigerated.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
