What the Beck???

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:  No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

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.

Here are the ingredients that I used today


Stir it up

Melt the peanut butter and
chocolate in the micro

Chop up some peanuts, and
try to not eat them as you go

Pat the base into a 9 x 13 pan
buttered  or sprayed pan

Pour the topping on the base mix

Use an offset spreader, so
it is nice and smooth

sprinkle with the chopped peanuts

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.
1972  Cabaret
         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.

 Uninvited Guests
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
