So I haven't blogged in a while so I figured I would do a couple of posts today. This one is on my life for the last couple of weeks.
Alcott started something new this year- they are doing tri-mester awards instead of Principal's awards every month. Stevie got most improved on staying on task- goes to show that RITALIN helps!!!!! HE doesn't find his pencil so interesting anymore - haha! GOOD JOB Stevie- We are so proud!
We had a "pugging" at our house. what's a pugging you say? A wedding for pugs- stuffed animal pugs.... yeah I know crazy- but I did like the pugging cake I created :)
Of course I had to make some YUMMY Lemon bars with spring in the air. These are low-fat, 1- point, and very good and very easy!
Here is the recipe-
1/4 C powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 C flour
3/4 C Sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/3 Cup lemon juice
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
powder sugar for top
Mix 1/4 C powder sugar and butter until creamy, add 1/2 cup flour until crumbly- press into 8 X 8 pan- bake at 350 until golden brown (10-12 minutes)
Lower temp to 325- Beat eggs, add ingredients, pour mixture over crust, bake 20-25 minutes- cool and cut into 16 squares- top with powdered sugar.
Some long time friends- starting the "BIG 40" club! Thanks Crystal for making it look so wonderful- Happy Birthday!
