‘m moving pretty soon, leaving behind our tiny flat for something further out of town and bigger, with a kitchen that isn’t so small that every meal is like a Chuckle Brothers episode.
We got lucky, I guess. We stumbled across a flat that we loved as soon as we stepped through the front door and the smell of new carpets hit our noses. That particular love might just be mine, but there’s nice tiles and a good sofa and enough space, finally, to have people over for dinner. There might even be enough room for my ridiculous collection of shoes.
We’re adding a third member to the household, and making more of a home. But for now, I’m going through a series of “lasts”, familiar scenes that’ll soon be different, like the fire alarm going off while I’m flapping about with wet nail polish, or the last Saturday visit to the fruit stall.
One I’m not so sad about: it’s the last week of having to use an oven that sets itself to whatever temperature it fancies. Until I get that sweet working oven, though, here’s some no-bake goodness.
Rice Krispie squares are sort of…everywhere, and easy. But you know what? They almost always miss out the toffee. You need the toffee for the chew, and the layers of peanut butter and chocolate sure do help. Let’s go.
Browned butter peanut & chocolate Rice Krispie squares
Yields 32 good-sized pieces
175g unsalted butter
|Notes: I actually put the chocolate into a disposable piping bag, melted it by holding it under the surface of a pan of hot water, and then snipped the end off to make a tiny hole. It worked a treat.|
