Snapshot - Week 32 2017


It's been a tough summer, with the fires and smoke and some other stuff going on.  It was so nice to see the smoke clear and to get out for a walk with these weasels. 

Rocky Road Peanut Clusters

I made these last month for a co-workers birthday.  It was too hot to use the oven and I just love the classic chocolate-butterscotch combination.


It doesn't quite beat out my family favorite Peanut Noodle Things, but the marshmallows are fun and I am super addicted to peanuts right now, so there's that too.  
These store well in the fridge, if you make a triple batch, like I did.....

Book Club - Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell


'I shook my head and smiled at him.  He spoke again, slowly this time, and though his words sounded the same as before and meant nothing to me, they now sounded sweet.  They were the sound of a human voice.  There is no sound like this in all the world.'
