Church Windows

Today is a very special day.  For one, it is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Thank God for the brave men and women who risked their lives in Pearl and later in the war to defend freedom and our way of life!  I’m sure there are not as many of them around anymore but if you happen to know a World War II veteran, please thank them.

Today also happens to be my parents’ 55th wedding anniversary.  And yesterday was my parents-in-love’s 49th anniversary.  Pretty cool, huh?!  And, no.  We did not get married on the 5th or the 8th of December.  Anywho, back to parents.

I am a very, very blessed human being.  God gave me two extremely wonderful people to call Daddy (or Bear!) and Mama.  I could go on and on about them and it would be all true and all good stuff.  Bear–he is every little girl’s dream for a dad.  He’s sweet, funny, loving, giving…and just plain crazy.  Oh, the stories i could tell you on him!  Mama–she is the kind of LADY you would want to be.  She was an ideal role model (even though i fall far short.)  And, as you know, she sure was an awesome cook to learn from!

Since we’re doing Christmas goodies and i want to post something that embodies my parents, i offer Church Windows.  Another treat that Mama has made forever.  And they fit my parents: chocolate (her), nuts (him), marshmallows (both).  And religious too. ;0)

Happy, Happy Anniversary to both sets of parents!!!  There is no way i could ever thank God enough for you.  I only hope that some day my girls will feel the same way.  Love you!!!

1–12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 stick butter

1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1–10 1/2 oz pkg colored miniatured marshmallows (fruit-flavored)

Flaked coconut

Waxed paper

Melt chocolate and butter and allow to cool.  Add nuts and marshmallows, mixing well.

Prepare a piece of waxed paper.  Sprinkle coconut in a line down center.  Pour or spoon half of chocolate mixture on top and form into a log.  Sprinkle coconut on top and sides.  Wrap up in the wax paper and press down slightly to form a flat bottom.  Repeat with other half of chocolate mixture.

Refrigerate.  When cooled, cut in slices.
