Homemade Brown Sugar

We ran out of brown sugar this weekend and we didn't want to run to the store.  So I looked up if we could make it ourselves it was incredibly easy and it tasted much better then the store bought.

It's a cup of sugar to a tablespoon of molasses.

Stir until it is mixed completely.  You might get a little nervous that it isn't working part way through but it is just keep stirring.

There you have yummy brown sugar!!

Chicken Salad Pitas

With the days starting to feel like summer this has been a new favorite that I have made the last couple of weeks.  Its been nice because I have been making it during my son's afternoon nap and then it can chill in the fridge until dinner time.

I mix together:
1/2 head of chopped lettuce
2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1/4c miracle whip (or mayonnaise)
4 slices of bacon chopped
pepper to taste

I then let it get cold in the fridge until dinnertime.  I put the filling in pita's and we enjoy.  This makes enough for 3 whole pitas with a generous amount of filling.

Strawberry Shortcake

So the other day I decided to dress up our strawberry shortcake.  After making whipped cream I cut the angel food cake into small chunks and then proceeded to make layers in our "root beer float" cups.  It was a fun change and made the dessert feel a little more elegant.
