You may be relieved to know that I listened to the Body of Christ, who was telling me to take something nice to my neighbor after our unfortunate introduction at the hands of the beast. So tonight I made a batch of butterscotch haystacks and I hope to distribute them to that family along with all my other neighbors tomorrow. I will be leaving Beckham at home when I go. I also good Booed, so hopefully this will cover whoever blessed me with a sack of goodies on my front porch. Thank you, whoever you are! My front porch is looking so cute right now with all my fall stuff. I wish y'all could see it. And my new door is coming soon!
Back to the haystacks. This is normally a treat I make at Christmas. But hay is a fall thing, right? I keep hearing about hay rides and seeing hay bale mazes at all the pumpkin patches. Please don't hate me because we've been to three different ones. My child needs something to do!
Here is the recipe I used in case anyone wants to give them a try.
1 cup of butterscotch chips
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of Spanish peanuts
2 cups of La Choy chow mein noodles
Heat the peanut butter and butterscotch chips on 50% power for 3-5 minutes. Stir, then add noodles and peanuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let them harden and then eat 'em all up!
*I like to go lighter on the peanut butter and heavier on the noodles, but that's just me. The peanut butter definitely makes it easier to work with. I was so happy that I ended up buying way more chow mein noodles than I needed because I really like to eat them plain. They're better than chips.
Also, my cousin-in-law Erin just got a blog makeover. It might be the cutest one I've ever seen. Yep, it is. Take a look!
Here are some pics from the most recent pumpkin patch bonanza.
Not quite true.
I was so thrilled that he loved his corn dog. Although this one gave corn dogs a bad name. It was not crispy at all.
The Jones men.
I totally copied another mom who put her kid in here for a picture. My kid only wanted to throw the pumpkins.
And this is what Jackson liked best about that pumpkin patch.
