5 for Friday

1.  How do you manage the blogs on your Google Reader and in your Reading List on the Blogger Dashboard? I can't figure it out and it is bugging me.

2. Mail is now only going to be delivered Monday - Friday.  Are people really upset about this?  Is mail still a thing?  IMO, why doesn't everyone just get eBills?  I loathe the junk mail/flyers I get in my mail box every dam day.  But I do love getting magazines, but I am still fine without them not coming on Saturdays.

3.  I have a severe addiction to sparkling water.  Back in December I started drinking sparkling water and now I can't get enough.  Flavored, plain... I love it all. 

4.  Book recommendations.  Have you got any?  I am going on vacation in two weeks and I want to read to my hearts content!

5.  Leah's Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars
One of my BFFs and her mom make the best chocolate & peanut butter bars!  They are delicious and so easy to make.  I have made them for co-workers the past few years at Christmas and people always say "These are homemade?!"  So good!

Here is the recipe:
Half a box of graham crackers, grind them up in your food processor or blender
Half a container of peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick, plus 2 tablespoons melted butter
Combine all of these ingredients and smooth them out on the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish
Melt one bag of chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet) in a pan on the stove.
Pour and smooth the melted chocolate on top of the pb mixture
Put in refrigerator for two hours to set
Place on counter for one hour before cutting into squares with a sharp knife
Easy peasy!


  1. my google reader re-follows things that I've unfollowed. I have no help for you here, sorry. It's annoying.

    I looooooove mail. I'm weird. I love the grocery fliers. I love the stupid penny saver. I love it all. I'm a little sad there won't be any mail Saturday's.

  2. I hate junk mail with a passion!! I call or mail do what ever it takes to get off their lists but it always seems like new ones find me! Gonna have to try those PB Bars...

  3. Do you like mysteries? I've started reading the alphabet series by Sue Grafton (the first book is "A is for Alibi"). I love that there are 26 book!

    Oh, and I only check my mailbox every other day anyway, so let's drop Weds. mail as well.
