Peewee watching TV with Daddy

Levi words

I was talking to Moose about obeying and Levi chimed in with "I obey authority in Lord!"

Levi words

He was in his high chair and we were all getting up. He stated "I want out of this high chair...RIGHT NOW!"

Maple Bars

Makes 8 bars.
Ingredients:
1 tube of Pillsbury refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough
2 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
Icing:
1/3 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon mapleine or maple extract (found in the spice aisle of the grocery store, near the vanilla extract.
1/8 teaspoon salt
Directions:
First, get started on your icing.  Melt butter, brown sugar, and milk together in a saucepan over medium high heat, and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, turn heat down to low and stir constantly over heat for 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
In a frying pan, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium high heat.  Open your biscuit dough, and stretch each one out into the shape of a maple bar.  Be gentle, they will rip if you aren’t.
You will know your oil is ready when you place a test piece of dough into it and it bubbles all around it and floats to the top of the oil.
When that happens, remove the test piece and place a few bars at a time into the oil.
Cook each side until golden brown, no more than a minute or two.  Then flip over and cook the other side, then lay on a paper towel.
Now, finish your icing.  Add powdered sugar, salt, and mapleine to the cooling butter/sugar/milk mixture and mix until smooth.
Dip the top of each cooled maple bar into the icing, and place back on the rack for a couple of minutes.
Then, enjoy!
