Sounds good, right? I’ll get to that in a minute :)
Our weather has turned out better than I expected today! It’s not raining, but it is muggy which is putting a damper on my cookie-baking plans. I want to make my mom’s famous cookies, but they will not set up unless the weather is just right, so I’m hoping some of the mugginess heads outta here in a couple hours.
I had to go pick up a few last things from the store after church – I’m glad I don’t normally get all my groceries on Sunday afternoon. The store was packed today – I like to go when there isn’t anyone else in the store except for the workers. I don’t have to fight with people in the aisles, wait to get around people, or wait in long lines to checkout.
After maneuvering my way out of Kroger, I headed home and put together a quick lunch.
Nick and I split the last of the “bbq” I made with the pork loin, and I cooked up some fresh corn from the market and some green beans.
This corn was so good – perfectly sweet and tender. When you have corn this fresh and ripe, there’s no need for anything other than a little salt + pepper. Perfect!
And then….we napped :) I like Sunday afternoon naps. It’s one of my favorite things about the weekend – we take an hour or so to just rest after whatever else we’ve done over the weekend and gives us a break from whatever we’re doing on Sunday, too.
Of course, napping makes me hungry, too. I don’t know what it is! It’s like sleeping burns off my lunch and then I need a snack.
Enter Reese’s In A Cup.
I made one my best smoothies yet!
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 Tbsp vanilla pudding powder
- 1/2 Tbsp PB2
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 5 ice cubes
I’m not a big fan of PB2 mixed up as actual peanut butter to use on bread, etc, but I LOVE it in smoothies and sauces and other recipes.
Blend it up and top with a little Hershey’s syrup – this tastes like a reese cup with a little hint of banana. I think the vanilla pudding powder was the perfect addition. Since the pudding powder is sweet and the cocoa powder is not, this was just sweet enough.
I’ve still got a bunch of stuff to do, so I guess I better get of my butt and get moving :)
See you for a fun dinner! I’m excited – and cross your fingers for good cookie weather!
