*It’s Tuesday and I’m fat. It’s Fat Tuesday. 🙂
*All of my friends are going on and on about Downton Abbey. I’m not going to watch it. The whole time I was addicted to Lost I would hate having to wait until the next season to know what the heck was going and really I never did. Plus I just kept thinking what if I die before I see the ending of Lost. 😛 That can’t be good. I’m stuck watching Grey’s Anatomy every week not because I really like it anymore, I’m just invested. So I am only going to watch shows now that are completely come and gone. That way I can rent all the season and do a week long marathon and not have to wait to see how it ends.
*I watched a great video about the amazing benefits of just getting 20-30 minutes of exercise a day. While I may be a chunkster I am one that has all the good numbers. My heart rate, pulse, sugar level, cholesterol etc is not only good but great. It’s because I do something active every day. As the video says you get 23 ½ hours a day to do everything else. Move it peeps.
*I’m against the new Jack and the Box milkshake because there is no actual bacon in it….just bacon flavoring. WTF? That’s like bacon salt. Screw bacon salt, just sprinkle bacon on top of stuff. 🙂
*Oreo turned 100 this year. They came out with a Birthday Oreo that is suspiciously like Funfetti and taste like it too. So to honour that I made Rice Krispie Treats for my hockey team using them. Extra sprinkles since it is Fat Tuesday after all.
Birthday Oreo Rice Krispie Treats
6 TBSP unsalted butter
1 16-ounce bag of mini marshmallows
12 ounces Rice Krispies Cereal
1 package Birthday Oreos, chopped into pieces
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 ounces white chocolate
1/3 cup Funfetti Cake Mix
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows and vanilla.
Stir until they begin to melt.
When melted stir in cereal and cookies so it they are completely coated with marshmallow mixture.
Press into a baking dish (9 by 13…but you need tall sides).
Melt white chocolate in a double boiler, when melted mix in the cake batter and drizzle over the pan. Add extra sprinkles so they stick to the white chocolate mixture.
Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
I couldn’t resist buying a package of the special oreos, too! They definitely have a funfetti taste to them… my boys love them!
I was waiting to see what you’d do with those! Excellent!
I watched the first season of Downton Abbey on Netflix. Now I’m stuck waiting and hoping they get this season.
Haven’t found the Birthday Oreos yet – but fun fact! My grandfather helped design one of the oreo molds.
ooh I’ll have to go look for those cookies!!
I actually have no idea what Downtown Abbey is. I keep hearing people talk about it, but that’s the extent. Off to google.
Ooo, I want to try those cookies. Sounds fun.
You know what’s a great show that has come and gone (only three seasons because network people are stupid and cancled the best show ever!!!! >:[), Lie to Me. It is way awesome and it’s about a team that reads people micro-expressions and body languages and they can tell when people are lying or hiding something. It is a terrific show, that you should watch 🙂
And these look awesome! I have yet to try the new birthday cake oreo, but it sure does look tasty, especially when it’s nestled inside a rice krispie treat 🙂
So pretty! Those bars look lovely.
You can do your exercise while they sit…sorry couldn’t help myself.
I’ve been wanting to try these Oreos, this looks like the best way.
OH. MY . Gosh!! I made almost this exact recipe using funfetti cake mix and birthday oreos last Thursday! Great minds think alike. 🙂
Bacon flavoring? Gross. I snagged two boxes of these cookies when I saw them on an endcap display. Haven’t made anything out of them yet but really like these treats.
I love your TV show philosophy. It makes so much sense. Plus, when it’s come and gone you can get your friends’ advice about a show. Like, “skip the third season of Veronica Mars!”
I’m sooooo jealous. I’m American living in London and we don’t have these oreo’s. Sadly we can’t even get a proper two row pack of Oreo’s and we just got double stuffed a few months ago. 🙁
Special oreos? Like special brownies? hehehe sorry, I had to 😉
