Well, it could be worse. We’re in the middle of a Noreaster (or getting one?) and they said if it was snow, it would be 2-3 feet, so I guess we should be thankful it’s rain instead. I, for one, would be okay with 3 feet of snow … and the Snow Day that would follow. Remember how excited you were when you were in school and had Snow Days? Ahh….
No dinner report tonight, since I hit a drive-thru on the way home from an appointment. Contractor is coming tomorrow to replace the last section in our existing kitchen (before the addition starts) and it looks like I’ll be without a sink for a day or two, so who knows what’s for dinner tomorrow. It’s been awhile since we’ve gone out to eat, but in this weather, I always feel like staying put.
Short post tonight, long day and I’m beat. The Cherry Coconut Bar recipe is below, from yesterday’s post. DO try them. Until tomorrow…
P.S. Completely off topic, but it’s my site and I can do things like that. I just gotta say it: I love, love, love, triple love Grey’s Anatomy. What do you think he’s going to do?
Cherry Coconut Bars
Yields: 3 dozen
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup halved maraschino cherries
1/2 cup flaked coconut
In a bowl, combine flour and confectioners’ sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a lightly greased 13x9x2 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. For filling, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the walnuts, cherries and coconut. Spread over crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until firm.
