White Lake Bound!

Well, it’s almost time to climb in the car for our last trip of the summer. Usually White Lake is the first trip of the summer, so this is a little unfamiliar feeling. And we’re going to a new house. Have I mentioned I am resistant to change? I still cringe every time I go to my home church and see the interior walls painted pale pale lilac, and think of the layout of the old building – the new one still confuses me a little.

But the times they are a changin’

One thing that is the same about White Lake… people I love, fun games, and a big table full of snack foods that will make you feel a little guilty all year.

This year I am making pine bark, with a twist:

35 saltine crackers; 1 cup butter; 1 cup brown sugar; 1/2 tsp almond extract; ~16 oz M&Ms, crushed in food chopper
Boil butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes; remove from heat and add almond extract. Pour over saltines (salt side up) in greased & foil lined pan. Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Sprinkle chocolate bits over, and spread when chocolate melts. Cool, crack, and cool some more.

Usually I use semi-sweet chocolate bits, but I think this will be fun and delicious. We’ll see.

Off to cook some candy!
