Megans Cookin: Chocolate Macaroon Bars

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Chocolate Macaroon Bars

Were heading for San Francisco!!! 36 Jr. high kids, 16 chaperones, and 2 teachers for a total of 54 people (not counting hired bus drivers)headed to the big city. It's the Heritage Music Festival and the kids are going for an orchestra competition.
We have the festival, Winchester mystery house, and Marine World all in our weekend plans. Our I-pods, hand held games, and pillows are packed along side the tray of fresh chocolate macaroon bars. And these are gonna be a hit. A little sugar high to top off the excitement and these kids are gonna be bouncing off the walls. What better way to start a weekend?

Reminder: I'm pulling the name out of the hat Monday morning for the Easter basket. Check back to see if your a lucky leprechaun on St. Patricks Day!!!
