As my friend, Jobeth, was digging in her purse for a pen for me to borrow, she came across an extra one of these.
She insisted that I take it home and try it. It's Chick-fil-A's newest addition to their sauce family and she says it's amazing. I'm a big fan of their Polynesian sauce but this new sauce is supposed to be all of their sauces mixed together. So, I'm on a mission tomorrow to find something I can dip into this stuff, and it may just end up being my finger. Anyone else tried this yet?
Speaking of food, today we ate lunch at Matt's dad's (Papa T) house. I made Mary's trusty mac-n-cheese and tried a new dessert recipe. My sweet friend from work (Thanks, Rachel!) made me copies of some recipes to try over the summer, one of them being Paula Deen's Homemade Kit-Kat bars. They are pretty easy to make and the best part is that you store them in the refrigerator, and you know how much I love desserts and candy bars stored in the fridge or freezer!
Homemade Kit Kat Bars
75 club crackers
1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (**Please do yourself a favor and buy your graham cracker crumbs! I forgot they even made them and found myself crushing graham crackers in a ziplock at 9:30 at night. Kinda sorta takes the fun out of it just a bit!)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Line an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan with 1 layer of crackers, cutting to fit; set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and pour half of the butter mixture evenly over crackers. Place another single layer of crackers evenly over butter mixture. Pour remaining butter mixture evenly over crackers. Top evenly with remaining crackers.
In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate and butterscotch chips. Melt over medium low heat, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over crackers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Cut into bars and store into refrigerator.
FYI***I might use a little less peanut butter next time. I love peanut butter but didn't expect to be able to taste it as much as I did. Just something to consider.
And then tonight we headed over to Ben and Kristin's for our weekly hotdog roast, which sometimes the roasting takes place indoors, on a counter top grill...not quite as authentic, but much more convenient! Also, there's something so much more forgiving about serving your family hotdogs for dinner if you do it with a crowd. Ha!
I'm officially off work for the summer, so this blog will probably be updated a lot more often. Now, as for how exciting the posts will be...eh, I can't make any promises! I may just have to get creative!
