Sharing a slice of the week so far...

This week is certainly whizzing past for about you?  As always there's lots on for the kids and various things I am always called upon to do but I found some time to finish my fall decorating in the 'prim den' ...

This is on top of the sideboard and of the wall as you walk into the room... love that big woolie pumpkin rug I made from a kit I got from Tanya of My lil craft room on Etsy.
And not forgetting Shazy's woolie tree - so unique!

 This is the shelf above it with my pumkin doll and a few pumpkins I made over the years
 I was out shopping last weekend and even had the best of intentions to make a start on the dreaded Christmas shopping when I spotted this earthenware jar.  I've been on the look out for something similar for ages and although a reproduction I knew it would be a nice addition to the kitchen...
 But this is the slice of the week I'll leave you with - peanut butter crunch squares.  We are seriously addicted to these especially with a thick layer of Cadbury's milk chocolate on top!

They are easy to make.
Just melt 2tbspns of fine sugar with 2 tbspns of golden syrup and 2 ounces of butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until all melted.
Remove from heat and stir in 4 tbspns of crunchy peanut butter and then add 6 ounces of crushed Rich tea biscuits (or similar)
Press firmly into a 1" deep baking tray and leave to firm up in the fridge.
Melt a bar of chocolate and spread over the cooled base and again let it set.
Cut into squares and try to stop at one!

Thanks again for visiting and hope you enjoyed sharing a slice of life with me!

Best wishes
