Rainy days..........................

It has been raining............and raining..............and raining. My farmer has not been in the field for days. We are having a lot of flooding problems here in our great state. It rained sooo hard yesterday that water started pouring into our basement. The ground is just soooo saturated. We got it fixed up before the carpet got too wet. People are losing their homes due to the flood so our water problem was very small compared to what others are facing.
I spent my day in the kitchen trying to keep my mind off of the rain.

you really can't go wrong with fruit, cream and sugar!


Homemade Brat Buns!


Healthy Egg Rolls!
Our front yard yesterday afternoon. Hoping for sunny weather soon for all people dealing with too much rain.

Thanks for stopping by.........hope you will leave me a comment and say hi!

Twix Bars......yummy yummy!

*I have had several emails stating that people cannot comment on my blog. Anyone have any ideas as to why or what I need to do??? If you can leave me a comment--otherwise send me an email at farmchickskitchen@yahoo.com. Thanks..........I appreciate it.

These homemade Twix bars would be a great addition to your Memorial Day meal. I hope you enjoy them! They are pretty easy to make and they taste great!!

48 Club Crackers (24 for each layer)

Caramel Mixture
1 cup Graham Crackers, crushed
3/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/3 cup White Sugar
1/3 cup Milk
1/2 cup Butter!

Frosting
2/3 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips

Put a layer of Club Crackers in a 13 x 9 pan most pans that size will fit 24 crackers. In a heavy saucepan on the stove, combine all ingredients for caramel mixture.

Bring to a boil, continue to stir and boil for approximately 4 minutes. The mixture will be caramel like and pull away from the sides of the pan. Pour over the crackers. Immediately top with another layer of Club Crackers, pressing down slightly. Place in fridge to chill.

Combine frosting ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, and melt for 2 minutes on medium power. Stir until all the chips are melted. Pour the mixture over the crackers, frost and place in fridge to chill until frosting is firm.


Cut and serve! For best results store in the refrigerator
Enjoy!!!

Darling Cheesecake and Mud!

I made these tasty little Mini Cheesecakes for Mother's Day dessert.........I can't wait to share the recipe with you. I think you will like them and they are just sooooo darling. :)

It has been raining for the past two days here..........I cannot stand not seeing the sun for days on end! We have not even started spring planting here..........it's starting to get late. Water is running everywhere and there is MUD everywhere too. Have you ever noticed......mud attracts feet? ;)
Even Sheba has muddy feet........along with everyone else that lives on this farm.


Notice the water standing in one of our fields? It was raining a very fine mist when I took this photograph. See a few of our ladies off in the distance? They are due to have their babies very soon. I hope the sun is shining when that happens.


Thanks for visiting me.....I really enjoy when you stop over. Don't forget to leave me a note and brighten my day. :) I would love to stop by your place for a visit too.
