I think one of the first things I ever learned how to make on my own were rice krispie treats. I was about 8. The warmed butter, the melted marshmallow, the folding of krispies into the pot that was way easier said then done.
There are some combinations that should never be messed with: 1) milk and chocolate chip cookies; 2) milk and chocolate cake; 3) chocolate and peanut butter. Here’s the thing: I looooove Reese’s peanut butter cups. A couple Halloweens back I bought one bag of Reese’s for the trick or treaters and one bag for me. For about two days straight I lived solely on Reese’s cups and coffee. Not my finest moment.
Our car is done. Like RIP, crossed over to the other side, there’s no coming back. Done. It’s a navy blue Mercury Grand Marquis (fabric top) that was gifted from Jaryd’s grandmother when she decided to stop driving. We call it the boat (or land yacht) and it has served us well for the last five-ish years. It has generated countless conversations with strangers, intrigued by why we are driving this automobile that is usually most popular in the AARP Seniors crowd…
We like peanut butter in this house. At the end of the night when we want a little treat, we grab a spoonful of peanut butter sprinkled with cacao nibs. I thought it would be fun to switch it up. I went through the different nuts in my head and cashews seemed like the only feasible option.
