I'm writing this post on Monday, my husband Wayne's birthday. He is playing in what has become a birthday tradition for him - a benefit golf tournament for nearby Parkville. He and our younger son Patrick and Friend Mike and his son Ryan make the foursome. The last couple of years I have joined Wayne and Patrick for breakfast at our nearby favorite restaurant/cafe, Roxanne's before they head out for the day.

I came home and watched two Hallmark Christmas movies I had recorded and then decided I needed to move around a little or at least move to another room. So after taking a while to find the recipe for these Butterscotch Fudge Bars I made for Friend Fran who was hosting our Farkle/Yahtzee group, I am on our "new back porch" sitting on the love seat glider multi-tasking...watching a past episode of Barnwood Builders with my Roku and DIY app and writing this post. (I had 3 years saved on our DVR and discovered that all of the episodes are on the DIY app so that meant I could free up some space on the DVR. Yay!)  

These butterscotch fudge bars were so delicious and with an added scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, even more fabulous and just what our Yahtzee game needed. Butterscotch chips just add so much to a dessert. I love them!
