Bank Drama and a Recipe!

Nice title huh? Well last night as Jeff and I were making dinner we got a phone call from our second mortgage bank. They called to tell us that they LOST our check. They knew the number of the check and how much it was for they just didn't have it to process. I have never had this happen before, so strange. Jeff gave me the phone since I do the bills. I was a little freaked out by the whole situation and I asked the guy if I could call him back tomorrow. I wanted to check our bank account and make sure that it hadn't gotten cashed and go to our bank and get the check canceled. About 10 minutes after I left my bank this morning our second mortgage bank called. I was at school and was planning on calling them after I gave the kids lunch. Well the guy again was asking for my checking account number. I told him I didn't feel comfortable giving that to him and asked if I could use credit card. Fast forward a couple of hours. I have two voicemails on my cell phone. The first is from my bank's freud department. The second is from the second mortgage bank needing me to call them back. My heart sank. I thought it was a scam and I'm so glad I didn't give them my checking account! After a few calls I found out it wasn't a scam and that they had just entered the wrong numbers so it didn't go through. All is right in the world now, phew!

This morning I noticed on the kids crispy rice cereal there was a recipe for a no bake rice crispy snack. After further investigation I realized that I could make it just substituting a few ingredients. Here is the recipe I used...it is in the freezer now getting firm :)

1 cup honey
1/2 to 3/4 cups shredded coconut flakes
mix them together
1 cup almond butter mixed well and then add to the other ingredients
7 cups of rice crispy and mix well.
Grease 9 x 13 and spread out mixture and freeze for an hour or refrigerate for several hours.

Can't wait for the kids to get home to try it. It was so easy!!!

It's actually a bigger deal to give our a credit / debit card number than bank info. You give the bank info out every time you write a check. It's all right there.
