    It has been very hot and humid here the past few days and it has only now started raining, not much but hopefully it will cool things down a little.
    Or it will stop raining and the sun will come out and it will become more humid
    Thank goodness for air conditioning....

    I really don't mind if you post pics of your BB's when you receive them, but it was a lovely thought from everyone to wait....

    I got this recipe in the mail this morning. It sounds so good but oh so bad LOL LOL

    Triple-Choc Fridge Bars

    Ingredients

    70g good-quality milk chocolate, roughly chopped
    70g walnuts
    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)


    Method

    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.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks, Anael, another 5 pounds to the waist to wear with that bar...thank goodness it is in the virtual RV. We are all giving you big {[(hugs)]} today in the RV with our prayers for the little ones. They have the best of medical care, so there is HOPE and PRAYERS coming for the little ones. Every day is cause for celebration...take it one hour at a time.

    Yes, Honchey, I agree we all await your word before posting any PC BB blocks...May your DS get on a flight home through a cancellation...on another flight.

    Everyone remain safe today...in the storm's path...

    Jumps for Joy!!!!!
    It's a SnEW Day!!!

    Anael
    ... yes it was the PC Minnesota (thanks CarrieM!) and I re-did it last night, then posted to its thread! More prayers from this side of the pond for Bram ... and Isa too. So good to know that his heart rate has returned to normal!


    OKSGlad ... Sew good to see you back in the sewing room!

    QNSue ... **pats on the back** all around the PC Ladies! You're going to have another monster sized quilt with all the BBs added! I'm totally curious just what you might use for your borders this time? I know your IRL Welcome Mat is out for us all, and I dream that someday we'll all gather complete with our quilts! Wouldn't that be something!

    Honchey ... Hope you missed the worse of the storm. We got some overnight and this morning it seems to be really pelting down. Don't think it's going to add up to too much, but of course, a lot of people are panicking. Toronto is idiotic already! Though that only takes one snowflake to send them into overload! I'm sure your DS can enjoy another day in Arizona ... though I know when you are ready to come home, it's hard to get back in a holiday mindset!

    CarrieM ... I have a similar recipe and it's a great one to have, although it does require some space in the frig! ITA that kids don't normally like Bran Muffins!! Toss in some raisins to the batter and there'll be no harm as they sit and wait in the frig. Your mailman must love you with all the activity!!!

    MiraB ... bet the Dinos have been fun to work on!

    Anael ... Thanks for the recipe! It looks amazing ... just like a chocolate bar, but better! Maybe some will make it for Valentine's Day treat?

    Here's your Chuckle of the Day in the height of the storm .......... Twitter from one of the Toronto area Police forces which has both rural and intense city populations ....... "If you're reading this from the bottom of the ditch, you were going too fast. Sloooow Down!"

    I think they got their point across!

    Update on Bram: the source of the infection has been located. It was the long line from his upper leg into his belly. The line has been removed. He's not out of the woods yet but his condition is stabilizing.

    Oh Anael--so glad they found the source of Bram's infection and specified treatment can be given. When I first started reading posts it was of your luscious chocolates (yes only 5 virtual #'s QNS!) and have been on tenterhooks all the way through to your last post. So many prayers are going out for those little ones.
    Honchey you and DH drive safe to Philly. DS will have a rude awakening to this weather!
    DS#2 should be driving from Pittsburgh to Charlotte for the last time this weekend. Hope his travel goes okay as well. Meanwhile DS#3 now living in Mass is preparing for the big blow!

    I've got the big freezer defrosting so we can fill it with fresh beef--oh waiting for those great roasts and steaks as well as hamburger that homegrown beef delivers. I wish you could all sample a bit of it. Maybe next week I will fix a big pot roast with potatoes and carrots a bit of onion and celery. I'll ring the bell when it's ready.
    Just had a sneezing spell--glad we are not IRL you would all have my head cold! Back to work.

    Thanks again my dear friends! I'm often sitting here with tears in my eyes because of the comfort you're all giving me, all the prayers, positive thoughts and love for Bram and Isa, their parents and Mick.
    I hope you surrogate grandma's and I will stay together for a very long time!
    All is quiet now in the NICU, the blankets are put on the incubators, meaning no more problems for now!
