After quite a few busy weekends in a row, it was really nice to have a weekend with no plans. Especially because the next season of sports is going to be start in a couple weeks, and that means our weekends will be full of football followed by baseball. So relaxing, a trip to Costco, and just being outside was a nice way to spend a weekend. But that means, we are back to Monday. The only way I can see to make Monday better is to have a sweet treat.
The weekend is here. I have no idea why, but this week has felt like it has gone on forever. This morning I get to go to a Roman Festival for my son’s 3rd grade class. I have no idea what it will entail, I just know I had to send in 3 cans of black olives for the event. My son loves Greek and Roman mythology, so I am sure he will have a great time. In 2nd grade they had the Greek mythology unit, and he was in heaven. Before I forget. Head over to my Facebook page for a giveaway going on. It ends tonight at 6pm EST.
It is hard for me to pick a favorite candy bar. I love peanut butter cups, but for some reason if given the choice at the check out, I would never pick it. Not sure why. 9 times of out 10 I would pick a Milky Way. The other time would be a Peppermint Patty or maybe a 3 Musketeers. This happens probably 2 times a year, so it is always a great debate for me What about you?
I have not gotten back into the swing of things with the blog since getting back from vacation. Today was the first day I felt like my house was back and order and life was back to normal. So maybe tomorrow the blog will be back in the normal swing of things. Just in time for a 4 day weekend for my 7 year old, and my parents to visit.
Puppy Chow, Muddy Buddies…whatever you call it, it is a classic Holiday treat. It is easy to make and the flavors are a classic. Just melt , mix, shake, and dump. You could easily have the kids work on this one for you, or at least help. And there is a decent chance you have all of the ingredients in the house already.
You know I can’t get enough peanut butter and chocolate, so it should come as no surprise to you that I have adapted this classic to have MORE! I always loved the pieces that got stuck together because they had so much peanut butter and chocolate between them. Well, now I make my own, and figured all the pieces should be like that
There are all sorts of different recipes out there for different version of this; candy cane, or lemon, or white chocolate etc. But I like a classic. If you have peanut allergies in your house Sun Butter would work great in this. Or maybe some Biscoff spread if you want to go crazy.
