I finished a group craft challenge...the colors this time around were cobalt blue, brown, avocado and yellow. It's an ebay Crafter's group...colors are chosen by the challenge leader and we can make anything we like with any medium.
I picked a modified Bento Box pattern and used from my stash: two yellows, one cobalt, two avocados (the skin and inside) and two browns. I didn't have enough yellow to make an outer border, so that was bought...as was one yard of yellow flannel for the back. I decided to go with flannel as I'm donating this quilt to the Kids Kottage here in town. All 100% cotton as is the batting. It ended up being 28x44...I had to cut it down a bit because I was running out of the cobalt blue to bind it.
Now onto a WONDERFUL recipe I found in Raley's Something Extra magazine....Chocolate Peanutbutter Bars. (not sure of the name nor what page it was on as my magazine is at work) Here is what I scribbled down as the recipe ~
Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter an 8x8 pan and crumble 6-7 graham crackers into the bottom of pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup of honey roasted nuts.
In a pan bring to boil 3/4 cup peanutbutter, 6 TBSP butter, and 2/3 cup honey. Cook for 1 minute after boil. Pour over crackers and nuts.
Put in oven for 10 minutes. Take out and pour 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanutbutter chips each over the top of the baked mixture. Let set for a few minutes and smooth out the melted chips.
Stick in frig to let the chocolate and peanutbutter set up. Cut and EAT!
