Grandkids, Pizza and Coffee Squares

What do these three have in common? Our home :) We picked up our grandkids this morning to come over for a visit. Our Grandson is 13 and loves challenging his Grandpa to an x-Box game. Hubby practices not only for the sheer pleasure of playing the game but to get a leg up on his grandson, who is a whiz at these games.
Our Grand-daughter is 8 and is really into helping me do things. As their parents were going to come over later on for a lunch of Pizza, I thought having her help me bake up some Coffee squares would be fun. I think that the reward of slipping the pan into the oven to bake, is being able to lick the bowl, spatula and beaters clean, which is probably equal to that of a treat of candy. The icing on the cake makes for the very best treat yet.Then we hunker down by the coffee table and colour while the squares bake. It's an activity we've enjoyed doing together for years now. All in all I think it was a fun day, snuggled indoors while snow fell outside.
