Magic Seven Layer Bars

I made these yummy bars for a gathering. Fast and easy..

Magic Seven Layer Bars

1/2 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In 13×9 inch baking pan, melt margarine in oven. Sprinkle crumbs over margarine, mix together and press into pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Top evenly with remaining ingredients; press firmly.  Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly before cutting. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

I ran these through the Weight Watcher recipe builder. Yikes!  7 points plus each when cut into 24 bars!

Early Morning Walk on the Beach

Funny Little Tangle

Title: Oddz

Strange weather last evening. Heavy dark clouds.  Thunder in the distance. I expected torrential downpours, but we had just a sprinkle. For one brief moment, the sun broke through and cast a peculiar yellow-green light, and like a giant polarized lens, enhanced the color of everything. Beautiful, but freaky.

Staying off the computer till the rumbling in the skies stopped, I drew this little tangle. The paper is an odd size: 3 1/2 x 2 inches. At one point what I drew looked like an ant. Ick! So I kept fiddling and adding and tried a couple of new patterns.

The evening was peculiar. The paper size is different. The drawing, asymmetrical and weird. The name of this tangle is: Oddz
