A Few Recipes - Oatmeal Bars

This is one of those boring, not-so-profound blog posts.

Ok, not that any of them are actually profound, but you know what I mean.

Here are three recipes requested by various cousins and friends. You know who you are. Enjoy!

Recipe #1 - Fruit-Filled Oatmeal Bars
(aka, GBD-NIH Bars*)

1 cup flour
1 cup oats
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Mix all these together in a bowl.

Cut in 1/2 c. margarine or butter, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remember to get the pastry cutter out of the Play-doh box, where your children took it, and wash the Play-doh out of it before using. I'm just sayin'.

Save about 3/4 c. of this mixture. Press the rest into a square 8-inch baking dish. Find some jam of some sort - you know, the kind your kids won't touch? Apricot or raspberry are great - and spread it over the oatmeal mixture. Sprinkle the extra mixture on top of the jam.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Once it's cool, cut into bars. Take to your women's meeting. Insist it's not a big deal to make this recipe. Offer to share it. Post it on your blog, staying up way too late to do said posting.

Except that your dog was throwing up, so you're up late anyways.

Never mind. Enjoy the bars!!!
