Tempt my Tummy Tuesday: Caramel Frosting

My all time favorite cake frosting is a homemade caramel one that my grandma and mom have topped angel food cakes with my entire life.  It makes the kitchen smell so caramel-y wonderful!  And, the taste...oh, the taste compares to nothing else.
The next best thing to having it cover my all time favorite cake, is to make graham cracker cookies with the leftover frosting.!

1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp. milk
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Melt butter in saucepan.  Stir in brown sugar.
Cook over low heat for 2 minutes.
Add milk; bring to a full boil.  Remove from heat.
Cool to lukewarm without stirring.  Add powdered sugar; beat well until spreadable consistency reached.  Thin with more milk if necessary.

They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
