Food Friday: Magic Bars and Key Lime Pie

We are heading out this evening to have a holiday dinner with good friends.  I am responsible for the ham and dessert.

Dessert #1:  Magic Bars

An UNBELIEVABLY easy layered bar.  The most complicated steps of this are melting butter, crushing graham crackers and opening a can of sweetened condensed milk.  I substitute peanut butter chips for the butterscotch.  And I used pecans instead of walnuts only because that is what I had in the house.  Variations are endless.

Dessert #2: Key Lime Pie

I had to make this as it is the favorite of our host and he doesn’t like chocolate (WTH?).  It is another SIMPLE recipe (I used store bought crust) made even easier if you can find a bottle of key lime juice at the grocery store.  I will add the whipped cream right before we leave.

Have a GREAT Friday night!

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
