Game Time

I love games.  Unfortunately you can’t wrap this one up and put it under the tree (or menorah), but, you can download it today and drive yourself crazy with it.  I’ve been on livel 10 for so long, I don’t remember when I wasn’t. Giveawayoftheday.com has games beside their regular giveaway (today is a screensaver, feh) on weekends.  When you click on the link, look to the right and you’ll see this Brickshooter Egypt game.  Click on that, and then click on download page.  Then, a bit down the page you’ll see where to download the game.  This one has wasted many hours of my life.  Give it a try

This extremely realistic F1 Racing 3D Screensaver is a real treat for all the people who like speed and fast cars.

You may recall that I make cookies for the holidays.  I got this recipe in my email this week, I believe from Kraft.com.  I liked it enough to print it, and think I’ll bring these bars on Thanksgiving.  Maybe I’ll substitute apricot preserves.  I really like apricot.

Czech Bars 
Czech Bars (24)

  • 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter (salted or unsalted—not margarine)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
  • 1 cup strawberry jam
1 Cream butter (better to warm up in microwave for about 10 seconds). Do not melt butter, just soften to cream.
2 Add all other ingredients slowly, except jam. Mix well.
3 Use 1/2 of batter to spread onto 8″ x 8″ or 9″ x 13″ cake pan. Pat down.
4 Spread approximately 1 cup of strawberry jam over this first layer evenly. Crumble remaining batter over jam layer. Pat down slightly.
5 Bake at 350° F. for approximately 25-30 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into bars.
