Now I Wanna Feed Your Dog?

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring so here’s a simple, no-bake recipe that’s sure to please everyone who is #Stayinghome to help everyone stay well. This is a tough time for everyone and those with chronic illnesses are vulnerable. For the safety of our members we’ve cancelled all Fibromyalgia London Group activities, for now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still connect!!! Here are some ways to connect! Here on the blog https://fibrolondongroup.ca/ ; and/or on Twitter @fmlondongroup ; and/or on Instagram @fmlondongroup ; and/or on Facebook @fmlondongroup ; and/or via phone: 519-453-3198 , and/or text; and/or Skype/Facetime; and/or Netflix Party (on Chrome); and/or email fmgroup.london@gmail.com  or darcyyada@gmail.com. And here’s a fun, simple way to pass part of the day. This is one of our family favs, it might be yours too! My paternal Grandmother named it “Dog Food” (when you’re in the process of mixing, you’ll know why) and we’ve kept the name.

Ingredients: 45 choc wafers (approx 1 package if you don’t snack, I mean, who would do that, just grab a cookie and start munching away…er, anyway) – this is another recipe where you can substitute other cookies, but they must be tap-on-the-counter-hard or frozen; 1/2 package of mini marshmallows; 1 cup coconut (sweetened or unsweetened, but you know which tastes better) and 1 can Eagle Brand or other condensed milk. Wash your hands.

Crush wafers/cookies in a bowl; I’ve always found the bottom of a cup or potato masher works well. Then mix in marshmallows, add the condensed milk and stir well (there it is, now you’ll understand the name, “Dog Food”). Butter 9-inch pan, then sprinkle coconut on all surfaces of the pan so it sticks to the buttered sides/bottom. Spread the mixture evenly. Then sprinkle the remaining coconut on top and press it all down together. Seriously, that’s it, it’s done! Cover well. Place in fridge for a few hours, then, try (I triple dog dare you!) not to eat it all before giving it away. It also freezes beautifully, but really, how often will you have any left to freeze?

#StayHome #SafeHands #WashYourHands #StaySafe (from COVID-19 and everything else too!) and Enjoy!
