Hope you all enjoyed the article about the clothes that guys just aren’t diggin’ :) I thought it was pretty funny…& I happened to agree with most of them.
Anyways- I’m gonna fly thru this part- since it’s not very exciting & you can probably predict what I’m gonna say- as for eats:
Breakfast: None other than…
The stuff on top is peanut butter drizzled over it- I put it on top instead of mixing it in- kind of mixing it up…I try :)
When I got home from work a grabbed a handful of mixed nuts (to hold my belly over until dinner) & then got down to CLEANING- for 3 hours!!! The house is pretty spotless now…& I’m sitting here blogging while I wait for our guests- MIKE & STEPH!!!
Can you tell I’m excited?!?!? I’m STOKED!!! :D They are supposed to arrive around 10:30pm, but it looks like they might get in a bit earlier- I hope so! I feel bad because I’m going to say hi & then I’m off to bed- gotta get up early & hit the gym.
Anyways- On to the GOOD part of the eats- since we are having company, I figured I would make a treat! Now I KNOW for a fact that Steph LOVES bacon…so actually gave it up for Lent this year – she likes it that much. And I know for a fact that ALL 3 of the (Mike, Steph & Craig) like peanut butter…..soooo…of course I went to my go-to girl for recipes- Jessica! Peanut Butter Bacon Blondies it was!
Peanut Butter Bacon Blondies
blondies from Simply Recipes
1 cup of butter, melted
2 cups of brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 cups of all-purpose flour
6 sliced of bacon, fried and crumbled
Preheat oven to 350.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 tablespoons milk
6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
Cream butter and peanut butter. Add sugar gradually. Add vanilla. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. More liquid may be needed depending on how thick or creamy you want the frosting.
I thought I would show you something funny- look @ the comparison of our kitchen wall to the peanut butter frosting.
Our kitchen color is called Apple Spice Cake- but I always thought it looked like the color of peanut butter..probably why I liked it so much when we were picking out colors :D
Frost blondies, then top with crumbled bacon.
Now, I don’t eat bacon- since it’s pig…and pigs are my favorite animal….that’s why I don’t eat pork. BUTTTT I will DEFINITELY let you know what they think of them- I have NO doubt that they will LOVE them!!
Now for my dinner tonight- it was courtesy of Miss Katie! A protein pizza- carb free-
made with 4 egg whites, 4 slices turkey, some spinach, salsa (which was WAY too salty- blah), and some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
I love the idea of putting the egg into the broiler instead of cooking them on the stove- kind of made them a bit different consistency..which was SO good!!
Well that’s been my night so far- I’m probably going to go & double check everything before they get here..since I’m still on over drive from the coffee– haha! :D
Have a good night & see ya in the mornin’
