Another Recipe and A Little Knitting

Another Recipe
Yesterday I wanted to bring cookies to RS to share with the ladies. It needed to be something that I could promote food storage. This recipe is one of my favorites because it is quick, doesn’t need an oven to heat up the house and it has chocolate as one of the ingredients.

Mountain Bar Cookies
½ cup butter/margarine
½ cup cocoa
½ cup milk
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix above ingredients into a large sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in ½ cup peanut butter, ½ coconut (optional), and 3 cups quick oats. Drop on wax paper to cool.
(I usually double this recipe.)

A Little Knitting
While watching the FIFA World Cup soccer matches I have been doing a little knitting. These are a fun and easy knit that I can do will watching some great soccer. The Patterns include, my Southwest Rib stitch, the Basket weave stitch, the Waffle stitch, the Interrupted Rib stitch from my perpetual calendar and Anita's Broken Rib pattern.

Ashley called and asked me to make another “I Spy” for Payton. It seems that Hailee doesn’t want to share the one I had made for the family.

HOw do you make your I SPY? I keep hearing about them and would love to make some for my kids for sacrament meeting. Also, love the English muffin recipe. I'm going to have to check them out. We love English muffins, too!

I remember making those Chocolate Oatmeal cookies--they're yummy! And I love your "Independence Day" dishcloths--I really love the "Waffle" Cloths, but I haven't tried a couple you've done. Gotta get my cotton out and go check the patterns on Ravelry!
