It's springtime! The sun is shining! The grass is green! The flowers are blooming!

 Remember how Friday night I was in a bad mood? I recovered quickly! How can you stay grumpy when it's FINALLY warm and sunny?
If it's warm and sunny where you live, celebrate with a springy, delicious treat!
If it's NOT warm and sunny where YOU live, you should make something springy and delicious anyway. One bite of these lemon bars will send you to sunny, southern shores. Your winter blahs will be blown away into oblivion... well, not COMPLETELY. Food isn't almighty.

Well, anyway, it might KINDA blow your winter blahs away, for a little while.

Here's the recipe!

1 1/4 c flour
1 c sugar
1/3 c margarine or butter
1/2 c egg beaters (or 2 eggs)
3 T lemon juice (I used a little more)
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Combine 1 c flour and 1/4 c sugar, cut in margarine till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press mixture onto bottom of 9x9x2 in dish. Bake for 15 min. Blend egg beaters, lemon juice, and remaining flour and sugar, pour over crust. Bake 15-20 min or until set. Cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Have a good week!


  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog! I love yours, Mellie!
    I'm so glad it is finally getting nicer outside. I love Spring!

  2. Enjoyed reading your post. Even the one just before it. All those places you haven't been? They're just places. Looks like you've seen a lot already! :) I've been trying to figure out who your mom is (the one who commented on my bird post under your log in). Maybe you could talk her into logging in and stopping by? I've been thinking ... thinking who could she be? A small blogging mystery .... Take care. Enjoy spring. Enjoy being who you are where you are. Jenn
