Really? I had over 35 views yesterday and only one person commented? It only takes a minute! Please please comment on the previous blog “Naughty or Artistic?”! What do you see when you look at the pic?
Anyways, does anyone remember that big box of dates I picked up a month ago? And how I mentioned I’d bake something with them? Well, instead of just eating them straight or cooking them in my oatmeal with the crockpot (which is extremely tasty where the dates just melt like sugar in your oatmeal! Pics don’t do them justice so didn’t blog about it) I finally baked with them! I wanted to make something like I devoured in the Coachella Valley but these were nothing like them but still tasted good. Will enjoy with a nice cup of tea, coffee or glass of milk tomorrow!
