Groundhog Day Blizzzard

 On the east side of the house the drifts are pretty high...  over the sills
 Finally about 3 pm  all my chickies were in their homes and off the roads.... Highways are closing all around and the wind is brutal with the low temps and flying snow.....  So this is a blizzard.  I will say I don't recall it ever worse.  I feel for anyone out in it....

Mom took the opportunity to make a 8 by 8 pan of cookies from her favorite author ever, Gladys Taber.

Brown Sugar Chews

1 egg
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Mix egg, brown sugar, vanilla,  Add flour, salt, soda.  Beat all with spoon and stir in nuts.  Bake 15 min. at 350 degrees in 8 x 8 floured, greased pan.  Cool in pan.  Cut in squares.

I just had some soup but sure could go for that sweet dessert!!!!
Stay warm and they have called in the Army National Guard here in Iowa.
Can't believe we have any left as I thought they were all over in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hugs to you...Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)
