Just the knowledge that a good book is waiting for one at the end of a long day makes that day happier. -Kathleen Norris

Well Thanksgiving could not have been better. We enjoyed family and a wonderful meal at my SIL’s house. The food was fabulous and we all ate O’ Plenty! I’ll be having the Christmas celebration so I better start planning the menu! Can’t wait! The newlyweds left yesterday to return to TN. I guess that mean the wedding is officially over. I loved every minute of the planning and the festivities… I’m sad it is over. But it is time to reclaim my life and get to the business of Silver Thimble Quilt Co.

This is my after wedding, after market, after Thanksgiving treat!
I have NOT made much time in the past few months for reading! So this book, which was chosen by my book club is my…return to self and read more! I’m enjoying it very much! I have talked to several people who have read it, as with most books, there are mixed reviews. I’ll let you know what I think LATER!

While the kids were here my youngest daughter
asked me to make “Confetti Squares”. These are wonderful and the kids always love them but they are kind of a pain to mix and stir and get pressed into a pan! Think of them as Rice Krispie treats on STERIODS……..It is a “Mar

tha” recipe so I must give the Queen her due! I certainly don’t need her coming after me. Here is the recipe……work fast cuz they cool quickly!

Makes 9

  • 9 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cups (2 1/2 bags) miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 6 cups Cap’n Crunch cereal
  • 6 cups Froot Loops cereal
  • Vegetable-oil cooking spray


  1. Lightly spray a 9-by-9-by-2-inch baking pan with vegetable-oil cooking spray; set aside. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add salt and marshmallows; stir with a wooden spoon until melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies, Cap’n Crunch, and Froot Loops, and stir until combined.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. To prevent sticking, coat your hands with vegetable spray, and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Let cool, about 30 minutes.
  3. Cut into 3-by-3-inch bars. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    Love your quote today! I totally agree. Let me know what you think of Edgar Sawtelle. I had to return it to the library. Didn’t have time for such a long book. Maybe in a month or so. I’m reading book reviews and spending county money on books.

    Take care! Miss you!

    I think I’ll make these for the Grandies at Christmas – they will love them! I love Rice Krispie treats, but not all the other stuff. Thanks for the recipe.
