146.6...Birthday Cake Bars

For the barbecue we hosted on Tuesday, I made Birthday Cake Bars. It’s basically what happens when a sugar cookie bar and funfetti cake get married and have a baby. Pure sweet goodness. I really do like bar recipes because you just pour everything into a pan and bake it. Much easier than cookies!

2. Melt butter in a saucepan; let cool slightly. Whisk in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Fold in 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles.

My son had flag football practice last night so by the time we got home it was late. My husband wasn’t home so I just put some leftover Creamy Cole Slaw and Mexican Bean Salad in a bowl and called it a day.

I took the kids to school and went to Sculpt class. I ran errands, stopping at Luna Grill for my favorite Greek Salad.
