Before I get into these delicious, chewy, sweet, aromatic Clementine Bars, allow me to tell you a bit about all that happened to get to them.
I should tell you that I have a Friends reference, or quote, for any situation in life.
I’m quoting myself, and a Friends’ character, from a few days ago: “You-you-you-you threw my sandwich away… MY SANDWICH?!?! MY SANDWICH!!!!!!”
Quick, quick – Who am I?!?
Ding Ding Ding! ROSS!
Someone, (it was the hubs) threw away my sandwich. MY SANDWICH! I was saving that for breakfast. Or maybe he ate it!! Which is even worse! That was MY sandwich!
Okay… breathe… I need to get over this. Seriously.
Let’s move on to the next quote.
How about this one: “Man, this is weird. You ever realize Captain Crunch’s eyebrows are on his hat?!” (LOL!!!)
That’s right! That was Joey!
Joey is not alone in this. I used to think the same thing. I still do. Couldn’t the artist make more room between the man’s hat and his brows. Like, maybe, adding a forehead?! Just a thought.
Are you thinking, “Could she BE any more obsessed with a TV show?” <—-said in Chandler’s voice.
While it’s clear that I can quote just about every episode of Friends, I should also tell you that I can eat 9 Clementine Bars in the course of 2 days.
For the sake of transparency, I should also tell you that those 2 days didn’t equal to 48 hours. No, it happened in a little more over 12 hours. I ate them all because he threw away (or ATE) MY SANDWICH!!
HA! No Clementine Bars for you, Mister! …and-a-few-thousand-extra-calories-for-me. I didn’t realize that when I was eating them. It was all about revenge. I’m such a brat. I really need to get over this, quick.
Maybe I will forget about it if I turn my attention elsewhere. Like maybe if I write a note to Captain Crunch’s artist and finally ask him/her to give the poor man a forehead.
I suppose this is the part when I should tell you a bit about these bars, eh? Would you believe that I made them in the microwave? And that it took all of 11 minutes and 13 seconds? It’s true. You don’t have to make them in the microwave. I just thought it would be cool to let you know that you can. I was impressed. This beautiful, 85-year old lady at Church told me that she cooks everything in the microwave, so I decided to try it with these bars. It worked!
