Passports and Peanut Butter

Finally got my passport application in, now I just have to wait for it to get processed. I wanted to go on vacation, but I haven’t had a passport since I was 17. It’s not bad enough that getting a passport is so complicated, but there’s a public service workers’ strike right now, making it difficult to get any kind of personal records done. So what to I do? I try to get both my Canadian passport and a British passport.
Actually, it wasn’t as bad as I expected from a government office. The hallway was decorated in a dark, soothing pastel pattern, with Art Deco light fixtures. The inside of the office was warm with pleasant background music, and wood highlights about the room. You had to take a number from an automated machine, but I got number 3, and the number 2 guy left the office unexpectedly, giving me immediate access to the kiosk. The woman was youthful and pleasant, and had no problem processing my application. Strange, no? Watch — my passport will never show up.
Dug this great recipe from the PETA website, and had to tailor it to what I had in the kitchen. I think it’ll taste great, but I’m not sure — maybe a bit too sweet. I kind of wanted to make something a little bit healthy, but sweet, like a dessert.

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Vector cereal

Lightly oil an 8 x 10-inch cake pan, and place the cereal in the pan. Mix the water and sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a light boil. Remove from the heat, add the peanut butter and Nutella, and mix until smooth. Place in the refrigerator overnight and let harden. The next day, cut and serve.
