Before you start to get worried that I’ve been deviating too far from my standard, we will now return to your regularly scheduled programming: how much of a mess I am.
(I feel like I should apologize for this, or something.)
My best friend just moved to Florida for 16 of the next 20 months, so I’m currently suffering from a severe case of separation anxiety. After the last time we hung out, my boyfriend picked me up, and I cried in the car on the way home.
He told me he was glad it happened, because he was starting to wonder if I actually had feelings for anyone.
So there’s that.
Anyway, now I’m trying to find people to hang out with until she returns. Unfortunately, my boyfriend may not have been too far off in regards to my feelings towards society: 99% of the time, I would rather hang out with my dog and a mug of hot chocolate than other humans.
That said, I’ve met a few pretty cool people lately. I’ve also discovered that I must have missed the day in elementary school when we learned how to make friends. I have no idea what to do.
So basically I act like a 14-year-old with a crush. I stalk their Facebook pages and invite myself to events they’re interested in. When one girl told me she thought a friend of mine was cute, I organized a gathering and invited him so that she would come.
Just for good measure, I made these potato chip rice krispie squares for that gathering. If these don’t work, I don’t know what will.
Potato Chip Rice Krispie Squares
- 1/4 cup butter
- 40 large marshmallows
- 2 cups crushed potato chips (I used Miss Vickie’s Salt & Vinegar)
- 5 cups rice krispies
- Line a 9×9″ pan with tin foil or parchment paper and set aside. (I used a silicon pan so I didn’t line it with anything).
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Decrease the heat to low and add in the marshmallows. Keep stirring until they’re all melted. Remove from heat.
- Add in the chips and rice krispies and stir until everything is evenly mixed.
- Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan, press flat, and smooth the top. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
