they say that necessity is the mother of all invention. i dunno if i completely agree with that, but i can tell you that i've created a dessert that's really fucking simple to make and i'm physically incapable of eating more than a 1x1 inch square of it at a time.
i had a bunch of rice krispies left over that were probably too stale to eat with milk, so i decided to cook with them. i had no marshmellows for treats, but i had assloads of peanut butter. all the peanut butter treats called for corn syrup, and i have none... so i improvised.
3c rice krispies
1 medium jar of peanut butter (which i think is something like 12oz)
1/4c butter (softened)
2c confectioners sugar (or powdered sugar/ frosting sugar if you will)
mix everything but the rice krispies in a bowl (i mixed butter and peanutbutter, then sugar) it gets pretty thick towards the end so be prepared to get your hands in there.
then i threw it in the microwave to soften it up a little so the rice krispies would mix in without being destroyed.
after mixing in the cereal, press into a bowl or pan of some variety (i used a pyrex loaf pan... but anything would work). the beauty about these is that they don't stick, so you don't have to grease the pan or anything.
also, spring time is bringing out the crazies. last friday by my apt a girl was carted away by an ambulance beause she was waving her arms and flapping and screaming "amen amen amen....hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah...." over and over. shawn said she looked scared and confused. she was crossing the street without looking and almost got hit by a few cars and shit.
yesterday, by my work a woman jumped out of her car at a stoplight and attacked two other women (no one knew eachother) by calling them bitches and saying shit about money and them living on teh street or something and she threw a dollar at them. she got back in her car and revved her engine really hard and threw water bottles at the other cars. it's fucking insanity.
I once read a science fiction story about the end of the world, and one of the things that happened was that average people walking down the street went suddenly, temporarily insane. They did things like those people you saw, or just took their clothes off for no reason, or other weird stuff. A few minutes later and they were OK again. It had something to do with the oncoming disaster (I can't remember what).
