Good Wednesday to everyone! Half way thru yet another work week. Woo hoo, give a cheer for the approaching weekend! I made some rice krispie squares yesterday and am taking them into work along with that first batch of peanut brittle. I cannot believe that some of my co-workers have never had peanut brittle-they haven't lived yet! I had yesterday off of work so am all fired up and rested to go back in and hope for a wonderful day. We have a birthday to think about for today also. Happy Birthday to Jenn, a great friend on the site here. I hope that you have a wonderful day! I'm working, Jenn's enjoying her day with her hubby and kids, my co-workers are enjoying some sweets, what are you up to today?

I love peanut brittle. I have not had that in such a long time. I think your co-workers will be delighted with your peanut brittle. A good day with sunshine here.

They did like it, and I also brought some rice krispie squares in, they liked those too. I couldn't believe just how quickly they devowered it all. Tomorrow I have to work at the other dealership, so they got word of what I brought into work so I'll have to bring them some in tomorrow. It just lifts everyone's spirits, and its a nicer working environment.

You give so unselfishly to your family, and to us, your friends, and I just wanted to give you something-it isn't much but I hope that it brings a smile to your face!!

I wish to Jenn a Happy Birthday. I never had peanut brittle, because I am allergic to peanuts, but I like almond brittle.

Oh almond brittle would be delicious. I will try to make up some because I have a niece who is allergic to peanut products also, maybe she'd like that.

It literally takes less then 10 minutes to melt some butter and marshmallows and to make krispies, right, so that was quick and easy. And the brittle doesn't take long either, but a bit messier to clean up from.

@BelleStarr That's a problem with me as well. But my box of cereal was nearing empty, so I wanted to get rid of it so that I can buy a fresh box for squares for the holidays, and they have the red and green ones in them, which is so festive.

The guys just loved it. When I walked in and offered it to the first couple of guys one of them said no, no, no, but he was the one who couldn't stop eating it and then complained when it was all gone. Funny.

They loved the peanut brittle and the rice krispie squares. The job is going well, I do not feel new at all, they all seem to like me, from the owner on down. And they treat me and each other well. We're like a big family. I cannot believe that its been 7 weeks already.
