Popping Up No Shadow

Groundhog day is the anniversary of when the dude and I started dating. He says that since we're married now, we only have one real anniversary. (Which is a lie, since we got married once for the INS and once for show--though we only celebrate the "show" date.) It's been 15 years. I can't imagine having done anything for 15 years, but there you go...

Tomorrow, I am off to Cathy's to stitch. I'm bringing Carmelitas. Here's the recipe so you can make your own and pretend you're stitching with us.

1 cup flour
1 cup oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup caramel topping
3 T flour

Mix first 6 ingredients together. Pat 3/4 of mix into bottom of 8X8 pan. Bake at 350 until golden brown (about 20 minutes).

Spread chips over baked mixture. Mix the flour and caramel together until smooth and pour to cover chocolate, making sure to not to let the caramel touch the side of the pan. (It will burn.) Crumble the remaining dough over the top. Bake until golden brown (about 20 minutes).

Those things are so good, there's no way I'm not going to gain a couple pounds from the ones you left! It was great to have you over today.

Oh and they were sinfully rich, too! :D

OK, let's start with the 15 years thing. As best pal and I were at the show date, we can't believe how long either! For starters, it means that we have been married for 5 years ourselves in May.

Of course, don't get best pal started on how she didn't think you would get married . . .
