Today I saw these birds out of my window.  The "salmon" colored feathers was magnicifent against the snow.  These are Northern Flickers and they are apart of the Woodpecker family.  The female is the one that is showing the colorful tail feathers.  The male has a moustache at the end of his beak under his eye.
 They bobbed and nodded at each other.
 Caught them kissing!
 I'm thinking they are showing off????
 The female is in the top of the photo.
I was able to watch them for some time. It was pretty awesome!

Peanut Butter Fingers Recipe

In an effort to not lose this recipe I am posting it on my blog...This is from Dianne Morris. I have a had this since November 5th 1991!!

Peanut Butter Fingers Recipe
3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. soda
1 1/2 cup flour
2 cups oats 
Mix butter, brown sugar, sugar and peanut butter until creamy.  Add egg, vanilla, salt and soda. Mix until blended.  Add flour, oats and stir. 
Put into bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.  (Don'tover bake.  it will be golden brown.)  Remove from oven.  Cool for about 10 minutes.  Melt peanut butter in the microwave till spreadable, and spread over the top.  Cool completely in the refrigerator.  Top with chocolate frosting. 
I do double this recipe and pat it into a big sheet cake pan, the baking time varies on this size.
