the best laid plans......................

.............get blown out of the water when you have to go to Bellingham on a Monday and come home with a sinus headache :-(!  I swear - is there a day that is less busy in Bellingham?!?!  Honestly, I am so sick of it (notice my ranting here!). Saturday Marla and I went to the Mt. Vernon Walmart and Costco - and they were better on a Saturday then Bellingham on a Monday.

I had a zealous list here waiting for me, instead I made a latte' and sat in front of the fire and watched TV when I got home at 4pm.  The chores will be here later this week.

I did have to make bars last night for our Women Unplugged at church tonight, so I tried a new recipe.  Found it on ........................Emily gave it a thumbs up - so did I!



  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, cubed


  1. In a bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs and oil. With floured hands, press two-thirds of the mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Set remaining cake mixture aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the milk, chocolate chips and butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 45-60 seconds longer or until chips and butter are melted; stir until smooth. Pour over crust.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls of remaining cake mixture over top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.

Creamy chocolate filled yuminess!!!  Super simple too!  I love recipes that use cake mixes!  Try them.  The comments on the site said to try different combinations of cake mixes and chips ie: white cake mix w/white choc chips, Choc cake mix w/butterscotch chips, etc.
