America's favorite cookie & Psalms

So I was thinking... 

that Oreos are my favorite cookie. My dad fostered my love of this cookie when I was little. It was/is my favorite bedtime snack: Oreos and milk. It might have just been a sneaky way to get my siblings and I to drink more milk, but good job mom & dad, because it worked!

This past weekend I went with about 10 of the girls in my Sunday School class to the lake for a girls' retreat. We had a fabulous time playing Mexican train domino's, making crafts out of clay and just hanging out together with the Lord. We studied Psalm 139.
Here are some of my favorite parts:

vs 1-4
O Lord, you have searched me & know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 

vs. 15-16
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

vs. 23-24
Search me, O God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. 
(NIV)

Didn't the Lord give David just the perfect words to show His love for us?!

Also at this retreat we had tons of FOOD. I signed up to bring a dessert(typical) and went off to google to find a fun dessert to bring. I found this recipe from Bakegirl and when I saw that the only 3 ingredients were Oreos, marshmallows, and butter; well how could you go wrong!

Chewy No-Bake Cookies and Cream Treats (Oreo Bars)
1 package of Oreos
1 bag of large marshmallows
4 tbsp butter

Bakegirl's recipe says to heat the marshmallows in the microwave, but I was a little weary of putting the whole bag inside; not wanting to clean up a huge mess later, so I opted for heating them on the stove like you do with Rice- Krispie treats. 

1. Crush the Oreos either in a food processor or by beating them with a rolling pin.  
2. Melt the butter in a pot on Med-High heat
3. Pour in the 1/3 of the marshmallows. Constantly stir until melting has occurred. Continue this step until the whole bag is melted. 
4. Take the marshmallows off the stove and immediately pour in the crumbled Oreos. Stir together and pour into a 8x8 pan. Make sure the pan is lined with aluminum foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray for best results.
5. Let set for about 30 minutes to an hour, then cut and serve! 

Happy Baking!
