Time is flying in a really unbelievable way.
I know that because a) I have 242 unread emails in ONE inbox and 110 in another and every day I skim through for anything urgent and declare that tomorrow will be the day I get it whittled down to nothing (#fail), and b) because it is already time for me to share another Leftovers Club post.
I swear I made this M & M Cookie Skillet Sundae like… last week or something.
If you are wondering whyyyy you should care about Leftovers Club if I am not putting dessert for YOU in the mail. And I’ll tell you:
It’s because shippable goodies are a good little trick to have up your sleeve.
I firmly believe in mailing treats. Once I even mailed cupcakes. It worked.
This month I was partnered up with Marie from Little Kitchie and ohmygoshIlovehersomuch. Like really.
She makes the happiest most colorful dinner dishes and has these filtered Instagrammey photos and I really just want to go to her little kitchen and eat all the food. She sent me these Spicy Honey Mustard Roasted Cashews that were out of control delicious. They came in the mail and Chad and I were like ravenous snack monsters. He has gotten hip to the Leftovers Club plans and gets pretty excited about what people are sending me in the mail.
I need to do a better job of hiding the treats.
So anyway. I made Marie these Oatmeal Berry Crumb Bars. I had a whole other plan for what was going in the mail, but I have this berry-buying problem and have this compulsion to toss them in my cart every time I pass them and they look pretty (thank god for hydroponic gardening!).
These little bars are quick and super easy. The crust and the topping are the same but the crust is pressed and the topping is scattered. The cooked berry filling only takes a few minutes to become thick and jammy. These are so perfect with coffee and of course are super simple to stuff in the mail.
If you’d like to participate in the Leftovers Club you can find info HERE. If you only have old fashioned oats on hand you can pulse them in a blender of food processor once or twice to yield quick oats.
