If you have a little extra jam try these!

Jam Bars
½ cup light brown sugar
1 cup AP flour
1 cup rolled oats
½ t Baking Soda
1/8 t Salt
½ cup butter, at room temperature
½ cup jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix brown sugar, flour, rolled oats, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender to form a crumbly mixture. Press two cups of the mixture into the bottom of an 8X8 inch square pan. Spread jam almost to the edge of the base crust. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top and press lightly. Bake 30 to 40 minutes until lightly browned. Cool completely before cutting into 16 small bars.

Notes:
I sometimes add chopped nuts or coconut to the crumb mixture.

When the bars are cool spank a little powdered sugar on top.

Thanks for the hugs, Dawg. I need them right now. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. The prednisone affects my moods and instead of making me slightly sedated, it sends me the other way. With my asthma attack I am supposed to rest but my mind is wanting me to get up and save the world!

I have some crocheting and "Mama Mia" to keep me occupied for a few hours.

I just took the garbage out and saw where someone absconded with my old water heater that I took out earlier. They could have at least taken the cardboard box (the new one came in) away so it didn't blow away and not be taken away tomorrow in the wee hours. The numbskulls. Come to think of it they took the draft inducer, too. They don't think someone would throw away a good water heater do they?
The numbskulls.

Thank you so much for the recipe, I will be making these bars.

Believe it or not, I don't know how to post a picture. I am not very computer smart.

Maybe that's what happened...I don't remember. I do remember waking up and thinking I had slept all day until one in the afternoon. Had a mini panic attack and went back to sleep. It was a tough morning for trying to wake up.

I don't shower and get dressed until I'm wide awake, about two hours after I stumble from bed. Too much cat hair and I hurt myself by walking into walls and falling in the shower.

I'll bet that's it.

And Pac, why aren't you recycling your cardboard?
