Another moving story of WW1

I've posted a few blogs the last couple of weeks about remembrance, i just think we really should never forget. So much was sacrificed so that we today could have the lifestyle that we live. You know we can fly to almost anywhere in the world safely ( well relatively safely in this terror climate) we get to move around our home countries freely, we can do so much thanks to those that fought and died for their countries. So much is said about bringing troops home from Iraq and such places, but if we do then those people that live there will face tyranny and death in large numbers, torture, any number of cruelties. I don;t know what the answer is, as i certainly don;t want anymore troops dying out there, so if you have a spare min or two today, bow your head and remember those that fought in wars past and those that fight in wars today.

OOOooooeeeyyy Gooey...

I made these babies yesterday....ooooooooo they are so good, can't eat just one though!!!

12 ounce(s) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
11 1/2 ounce(s) 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
6 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 cup(s) sugar
1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
1 cup(s) chopped walnuts

In double boiler over hot water, melt bittersweet chocolate chips and butter. In large bowl with electric mixer or whisk, beat eggs and sugar until thick; stir into chocolate mixture. In small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; stir into chocolate mixture. Gently mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts. Using a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 12 inches long. As dough will be quite soft, use plastic wrape to hold dough in log shape. Wrap tightly; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm. (Dough may be frozen; thaw in refrigerator before proceeding with recipe.) Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap dough; with sharp knife, cut into 3/4-inch slices. Place slices 1 1/2 inches apart on greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until shiny crust forms on top but interior is still soft. Cool on baking sheet; store in airtight tin up to 1 week.
