Nick and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary last Wednesday. We decided this year we would get each other something we needed. I knew exactly what Nick "needed." He had been asking for this since Christmas.
A remote! Not just any ole' remote, but a touch screen remote that does everything we need. With one touch this amazing remote will start the tv, dvd player, and tuner so you are ready to watch a movie. Amazing! You would have thought I bought it for myself! Shh....
Look what I "needed" so desperately! Major bling going on here!! LOVE IT!
Saturday we went to Sullivan's to eat a very yummy and romantic dinner. I think Nick had to roll me out to the car. We worked outside in the 100 degree weather all day so we were starving!
Look what we got in the mail for Nick's cousins in Belgium! Kitchen towels, Irish coffee glasses, and chocolate. Simone sent us the glasses because she taught Nick how to make Irish coffee while she was visiting. I can't wait to make this!
Also look who stayed the weekend with us! SADIE!! This is Carrie's dog and Duncan's best friend. We had such a good time and it was hard to say good bye!
I made this from Paula Deen!
Brown Sugar Chewies
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Turn off the heat, add the brown sugar and stir until smooth. Stir in the egg. Stir together the flour and baking powder and stir into the brown sugar mixture. Stir in the vanilla and pecans. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. When cool, dust the top with a sifting of confectioners' sugar.
Next time I will add chocolate chips, but they were so easy and yummy!!
