Carriem, you are the lucky one to be able to see all the Bblocks....
Please, all of us... wait until the "out of towners" receive their blocks...Okay???
Just got a phone call from DS...His flight tomorrow from AZ has been canceled and can't get in touch with the airline to make alternate plans to get home...what a bummer...
I got this recipe in the mail this morning. It sounds so good but oh so bad LOL LOL
Triple-Choc Fridge Bars
70g good-quality milk chocolate, roughly chopped
70g digestive/plain sweet biscuits
70g good-quality dark chocolate
70g crunchy peanut butter
70g desiccated/shredded coconut
70g good-quality white chocolate
*(70 g is about 2.46 oz)
Grease and line an 18cm square cake pan with non-stick baking paper so the paper hangs over the sides of the pan (to easily remove the slice).
Melt milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then spread over base of cake pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until set. Place the walnuts and biscuits in a plastic bag, seal, then beat with a rolling pin until broken into small pieces. Place dark chocolate and peanut butter in a pan over low heat, stirring until chocolate has melted. Add crushed nuts and biscuits and the coconut. Stir to combine. Spread over set chocolate and refrigerate for 30 minutes until firm.
Once chilled, lift slice from pan and cut in half lengthways. Melt white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water and spread over one side of the slice, then top with the other half so that white chocolate is in the centre. Refrigerate until firm, then cut into 12 bars.
OMG Anael - that sounds scrumptious! Now for the non metric person here - what does 70g equal in ounces??? LOL
*(70 g is about 2.46 oz) Hahahahaha it was there Jeanie :D
My DS just called. Isa is ok, she slept well last night. Bram is in very bad condition, my DS was adviced to stay at home today. At 11 am the NICU will call them (after the doctor's visits). Let's hope they won't call sooner! I'm going to get ready so I can leave whenever I need to.
Prayers for Bram! So sorry for the bad news Anael!
My prayers are with you tonight Anael, I am hoping that the phone call will be positive news...
Will be thinking and praying today Anael. The way babies change so fast may mean a change for the good by time today rolls around. Positive thoughts!!
Anne, sorry DS can't get home. Please everyone in this storm's path take care. We're out of the "danger" area but in an 8 hour span today we're supposed to get rain, freezing rain, then snow by rush hour. Hopefully people will cancel their appts and we can get out of work before the snow comes on top of the ice.
Get lots of fun sewing done today everyone. I'm off to earn my FART money LOL.
Update on Bram: his condition changed from life threatening to very critical, a bit more positive! He has lots of problems and there's not much they can do. Last night the nurses called the neonatologist, did lots of testing and they found out he has a second infection and he is retaining fluid in his belly and they're not sure what is causing it. His heartrate went up to about 200 but is now back to normal again.
Anael--was just sitting here praying for him and everyone involved. Thanks for the update. Now I need to get ready for the day...
I just wanted to check for any news before going to bed, Anael will say a special prayer for Bram tonight, and hope that tomorrow brings better news.
