yup, I caved

I know I said I'd never have a blog, because I just don't want to spend that much time on the computer, and I probably wouldn't keep it up anyway. (I still make no such promises.)

but, since I signed up on LDSSingles, my life has a comical element, which is kind of fun to share, even if it's not fun to live it. (dating after 40 is not for the timid)

so, now you can keep up with my dating life. or at least my online flirts... no dates have materialized as yet.

I'm pretty sure you won't need to be invited or sign in, but let me know if it doesn't work.

I hope I at least entertain.

Beautiful Babe seeks Endowed, Educated, and Employed

These are the pics I took of Laurel on bookclub night so that she can get her sexy self out there and meet some great guys. (hopefully they won't be over 60 and want to consecrate anything). She is looking for someone who is 1.Educated - that means someone who has at least a phd (jk)possibly a doctor I always say 2. Endowed- if they don't have a temple recommend why bother? and 3. Employed- hello are you still living with your parents? Laurel deserves all three! Good Luck and happy hunting!

Here is my peanut butter bar recipe.

Peanut Butter Bars
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup margarine or butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
½ tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
½ tsp. soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup oatmeal (quick oats)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Directions: Sift dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl cream sugar, butter, vanilla, and peanut butter. Mix well. Then add egg. Add dry ingredients. Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips. Press into a 9x13 pan. Bake for 15 to 16 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cool Bars for 5 minutes
½ cup powdered sugar
½ cup peanut butter
5 Tbsp. milk
Mix ingredients together and pour on top of bars.
Here's the salad I brought to January's book club.
Everyone else post your recipes :)

Best Salad Ever
1 Head read leaf lettuce
1 head green leaf lettuce (or just all romaine)
1 package dried cranberries (i don't use that much)
1 package feta cheese
candied almonds (see below)

1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp poppy seed
1 cup sugar (i don't use that much)
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp dry mustard
Mix everything in blender except poppy seeds and then add poppy seeds and mix in.

Candied Almonds:
melt 1 tbsp butter and 3/4 cup sugar. Stir and heat until mixture liquefies. Add 1 package (large size) slivered almonds. Spread on greased foil. Let harden and break into small pieces-toss with other ingredients in salad. Note: the dressing is very acidic and wilts the lettuce quickly. I don't mix in the dressing until right before eating.

Room Service

Thanks Marcy for the fun afternoon! All who went had a great time. We've gotta do it again. I personally think we need to write and act in our own play. We've got the looks and the talent! ;)

St. George Invite

Hey Ladies!

Kiki has invited us to go to St. George this year for our birthday getaway celebration. We will probably do it in June near the end. Is that good for everyone? Kiki's family has a house down there with a pool and lots of games. It has like six bedrooms! I think it will be a great place to celebrate our birthdays, eat lots of yummy food, and stay up late talking about all the juice in our lives! What do you think?

Babe- A- liscious!

After the play last Saturday I decided to do a little photo shoot with Laurel since she just turned 40. Love the dark hair and dark beautiful eyes! Laurel's hair is naturally curly so it always looks great! She will soon be singing, "It's raining men!"

My personal fav.
