Bored now…

I am one of those people who have to be busy. I don’t like just sitting and doing nothing.

So what do I do when I’m up before everyone else in the house? There’s loads of housework to be done, but if I start doing it now I’ll disturb the rest of the household… and believe me, that’s not a good thing to do here!

Honestly, it’s like living with the little guys from Snow White sometimes. The worst thing is there’s only two of them, but they manage to have the traits of all seven between them.

Perhaps I need to channel a bit of the Snow White vibe myself… now, if I could only learn to talk to bluebirds, etc…

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (opened)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/3 cups shredded coconut



Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease a 9 x 13 pan with a little butter.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat.

Pour the butter over the graham crumbs in a mixing bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.

Press into prepared baking pan. Set aside.
