Will someone please tell me who keeps allowing Nelly to contribute vocals to country songs?? Because they need to be slapped. I suppose we should have seen it coming since his album back in the day was titled “Country Grammar”, but after his latest endeavor with Florida Georgia Line….ooph.
I realize I skipped posting last week. I won’t give you an excuse, I just ran out of time. A lot has happened in two weeks, including the bombing at the Boston Marathon. The whole event was tragic, however it concerns me that these incidents are occurring at such a frequency that kids today might consider it normal. I had a whole paragraph written, but I usually refrain from making political statements online. I will say that I am a runner. Good enough to qualify for Boston? No. But I am a runner, and I have ran several races. Crossing the finish line is something I never forget no matter how many times it happens- I can tell you what songs I was listening to, who I was with, how I was feeling. Running is a joy for me. And to have that marred by something as senseless and devastating as a bomb completely floors me. My prayers go out to those runners, their families, and all of the spectators.
This week I have some blondies for you. White Chocolate Reese’s Blondies. My brother and his roommate request blondies every time and since they are easy to mail, that’s usually what I send. This happened to be right after Easter, so I found some Reese’s pieces eggs on sale. Jackpot. These blondies were super moist and chewy, pretty much melt in your mouth delicious.
White Chocolate Reese’s Blondies
- 1 cup butter melted
- 2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 2 cups Reese’s pieces
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Grease an 9×13 pan.
- Beat together the butter and brown sugar until smooth in a large bowl. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
- In a separate bowl sift together the salt and flour. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well.
- Stir in white chocolate chips and Reese’s. Pour into pan and bake for 30-34 minutes.
Mine were still a bit gooey when I took them out of the oven, but they firmed up upon cooling.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
