Thanksgiving is Over but Food Abounds!

Leftovers.  That’s the third best thing about Thanksgiving. (First is the “Thankful List”, second is the wonderful food, and third is the leftovers.)  I hope you all had a wonderful celebration of reflecting on the things you are thankful for.  We’re still in holiday-mode (that means hanging out, watching movies, knitting, shopping, etc.) but I did want to share a recipe with you today, as well as listing the November Blog Contest winners before it gets to be December.  This recipe was a new one that I tried last week and the Elves and WH pronounced it good, so I’m sharing it.

Butterscotch Apple Bars

1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups diced apples
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
12 oz. butterscotch morsels

Beat oil, sugar and eggs thoroughly.  Add in flour and cinnamon and mix well.  Add apples and nuts.  Spread batter evenly into a 9 x 13 greased pan.  Sprinkle the butterscotch chips over the top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or less.)

And the randomly drawn winners (two winners, because we pick two any time the contest entries go over 500 comments), are: Stephanie in Wisconsin and Tammy (I’m not sure where Tammy lives, but I’ve emailed her – so if you’re a Tammy and you wonder if it’s you, check your email!) Both have received a Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate (you know, to entice them to continue to build their KADD …)

December ushers in our annual Random Acts of Kindness weekly contests. Check back on Monday for details.  The prizes each week include Wollmeise and other fun things!

  1. Hi Sheri, It sounds like you are having a nice, relaxing holiday. I loved reading all the random acts of kindness last year. Can’t wait to read this years. :) Off to knit on my secret gift projects. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    PS…did not get up to go shopping at all today other than for groceries. How about you?

  2. Oh yum… I’ll have to go tell my father inlaw I need to leave now, so I can go home and bake a batch. But first, I’ll swing by the grocery store and grab a few apples and a bag of morsels…

  3. Thanks for the cottage cheese dill bread recipe. We used to make it all the time and haven’t done so in years. Now there are two loaves ready to make broiled swiss cheese and alfalfa sprouts open-faced sandwiches. Yummmmmmm.

  4. Sadly, I don’t have butter scotch morsels in the house, just chocolatte. I bet that will work!

    Good thing the RAKs are coming up. It seems like lots of folks could use a bit of kindness these days. Perfect timing. Enjoy the rest of November and… Get ready! Get set! Be kind!

  5. This recipe looks like a keeper! Someone’s going to have to print up a Loopy Ewe cookbook pretty soon :) Have a happy holiday weekend!

  6. Thanks for the recipe! (I think Tabby is right about printing up a Loopy Ewe cookbook—how about it?) Glad you are relaxing this weekend and glad the RAKs are coming back!

  7. Hope you had a great weekend! Sounds like your Thanksgiving was great! Looking forward to that RAK contest in December!

    Happy Baking! 8-)
