A treat from my childhood

While watching an Aussie TV show I heard them mention 'chocolate crackles. Chocolate crackles were a favorite of many of my New Zealand friends, as birthday treats when we were kids.

Place 4 cups rice Krispies in a bowl. Sift in 1 cup powdered sugar, 3tbs cocoa. Add 1 cup fine unsweetened coconut. Stir to mix. 

Melt, over low heat, 250 grams coconut oil, cool a couple of minutes then pour over rice Krispie mix in bowl. Stir to mix. 

Fill paper baking cups with mixture, then place in fridge to set up. These are not exactly low calorie, but taste pretty good.

Whidbey Island through my camera lens

There are days when I don't have much to say, so instead of not blogging at all, I will take you with me as I explore Lovely Whidbey Island.

Had a perfectly lovely weekend

Friday afternoon we drove to Ephrata where we spent the night in our RV before driving out to the range on Saturday morning, to compete in a five stage steel challenge match. After shooting the match under sunny blue skies, we said goodbye to our friends, and drove to Puyallup to spend the night before shooting another pistol match. Saturday evening was very cool, but Sunday morning once the sun came out, the day warmed up to tee shirt wearing kind of temperatures, which we hadn't felt in a long time. It felt so good to feel the warmth of the sun as we once again enjoyed the company of our friends while competing in a fun steel match.
Now we are both tired and ready for a good night's rest.
Next shooting event is this coming Sunday, but this time is here on the island.
