I wanted to give Mr. Fantabulous a pre-puffy day treat as he’s finally started back on our remodeling job. It’s only been a what… 4 year project now 🙂 I can’t fault him too much as unfortunately he’s been injured a bajillion times and the times he wasn’t hurt he was crushed with his work. Adding on top of that various house emergencies that happened that HAD to get done immediately else we honestly would have ended up with a lagoon in our basement. I swear, sometimes being an adult and owning ‘things’ is more of a burden than what it’s worth!
Man, I could kick myself in the behind all those times when I was little being told I wasn’t allowed to do this or do that OR having to worry about this or that only to go to my room WISHING I was a grown up. That I couldn’t wait to be an adult and be responsible! Um, I’d like to retract that please! Politicians retract stuff all time time and they get ‘do-overs’. I’d like a do-over! Seriously wasn’t it the best just lying on the floor on top of a big comfy pillow, knees up in the air, ankles crossed and just coloring for hours on end! Hair in pigtails, chewing bubble gum and the only worry you had was whether or not Barbie and Skipper made up! LOL Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh… the good ol’ days!
Anyway back to my honey, he’s back to working on this massive project alone so I wanted to have some treats for him to snack on. I knew he was ‘tired’ of cookies and cakes, even brownies. So I decided to break out something I hadn’t made him in a while. Usually it’s a summer type treat but with us having 6+” of snow outside right now and it’s being frigid cold, we can at least pretend it’s summer with these treats.
I made him Vanilla Gimme ‘S’more Lovin’ and Chocolate Gimme S’more Lovin bars. It’s funny as these look pretty simple to make but they actually are rather involved. Everything is made from scratch (well okay, I didn’t ‘make’ the chocolate) but even down to the graham cookies and the mellow filling.
Needless to say he was rather happy and went back to hammering/drilling/banging/cursing (guess he hit his head…again! LOL).
