A Rainy Day In Georgia and Comfort Food

Good evening everyone. Today has been a very dark and rainy day. Hopefully the rain will turn things green and help to bring Spring  soon.  I know all of us are ready for some sunshine and warm days.

Let me tell you even before you look at my pictures, I am no professional and have a "primitive camera", but here is a picture out my sunroom window around lunch time today.  So dark, and rainy.
I personally love days like this.  A good book, a primitive magazine,and a few stitcheries to work on, and it makes for a perfect day to hibernate; ALMOST...But I needed some comfort food.
This is an old recipe for peanut butter squares. It takes ingredients you normally have on hand and is simple to make.. Thought I would share the recipe with you.

Chewy Peanut Butter Squares

2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup margarine (softened)
1 cup peanut butter ( creamy or crunchy)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups self rising flour
Beat together sugar, eggs, and margarine. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir in flour until mixture is smooth.
The batter will be stiff.
Pour into a greased 9"x13" baking dish. Bake at 300  degreesfor 45 minutes or until set and golden brown.
Cool and cut into squares.

Hope you enjoy the recipe.  Just in case it's too late ,or you are too tired to make them tonight and would still like to try them, I fixed you a plate and a cold glass of milk.  Come and join me and we will chat for awhile.

Hope you all have had a wonderful Wednesday.  Until we visit again.......
