What the Beck???
Today’s Recipe and Location: No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars
Found in: Food Network/The Pioneer Woman
I figured out that there are 352 calories per serving, if 28 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
This recipe was so fast and easy to make. The problem happened when we cut the bars the next day. The entire bottom crumbled and separated from the chocolate topping. Someone suggested that maybe I should have frozen the bottom to help it set up better before I added the chocolate topping, or just have put the topping on the next day and give it the entire night to set.
The bars tasted so good, but I was disappointed in the final product. I will try this recipe again and give it longer to set up. They were good enough to give it another try.

Bucket List Update
I have no idea how I can type this in one size and after I cut and paste it in here it goes crazy. Steve - I need your help!
1966 A Man for all Seasons
starring: Paul Scofield and Wendy Hiller
plot – This was the story of Sir Thomas Moore who was in conflict with King Henry the Eighth.
This was a good historical story, but it seemed to drag on and on to me.
starring: Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey
plot - A club entertainer in Weimar Republic era Berlin romances two men while the Nazi Party rises to power around them.
Joel and Liza were absolutely amazing in this movie. I really didn’t like the storyline. I feel like I should have liked this one because it is considered a classic. Sorry Liza – this one was a snooze for me.
1994 The Shawshank Redemption
starring: Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman and James Whitmore
plot – Basically a prison movie about two imprisoned men who bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through their actions.
I love, love, loved this movie! I can’t believe that I haven’t seen it in its entirety before now. I think I turned in on once and it was a violent scene, and I turned it off. What a major mistake. I love the characters. This is a must see.
2004 The Aviator
starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Alan Alda, and Alec Baldwin
plot – The biography of the life of Howard Hughes. This movie takes place in the 1920s and 40’s. This showed how Hughes was involved in building planes and movies.
This was a very long movie, but I learned a lot about Howard Hughes. I really didn’t even know what he looked like until I looked it up on Google. DiCaprio did an excellent job portraying this eccentric man.
1933 Smilin’ Through
starring: Norma Shearer and Fredric March
plot – A man lives alone for thirty years after the death of a past love. His close friend insists that he take care of his orphaned niece. Once she is grown. John does not want her to marry her chosen man because of an old grudge. She stills wants to marry him.
At first I was unsure about this movie, but it had a great twist at the end.
|I took this through the screen, |
so I wouldn't spook her out of my pond
|She was so happy taking a little dip|
|He was standing guard, |
so she wouldn't be interrupted
|It was time to go|
