Because it looks like this outside:
I made some chocolate chip bars. What is it about a dreary, rainy day that positively beckons one to bake?
Chocolate Chip Bars
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
Save 1/2 cup of the mixture, and put the rest in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Pour a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with a 12 oz. package of chocolate chips, and top with the remaining oat mixture.
Bake at 350º F. 25-30 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
Easy and delicious. The perfect antidote to the weather.
