I am starting out my social work career and my marriage. I write to relieve stress...mostly by sarcastically telling life stories.

My weekends are usually busy. I feel like I have to save up all my errands until the weekend and then I have a laundry list of to-dos. I like to finish my list by Saturday because the only day my husband and I have off together is Sunday.

Yesterday I cleaned the house, did laundry, went grocery shopping, put together an end table, and bought a lamp for the extra bedroom. I also put together spaghetti sauce for dinner. It is approximately a hundred million degrees outside (OK really it is a 107 with the heat index). I feel like my skin is melting when I go outside. No bueno.

All day long my Kitchen Aid mixer sang to me: "Food, glorious food! Hot sausage and mustard! While we're in the mood- cold jelly and custard!" I hope other people loved Oliver as much as I do or I may have just sounded crazy. But I digress...

Anyway I wanted to make a yummy treat, but considering I was sweating in my kitchen with ONLY my crock pot on I figured turning on the oven might kill me. As usual, I consulted my favorite blogger- the Pioneer Woman and I found my answer. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Oh yea you heard me. Delicious and- more importantly- served cold.

Plus I only had to turn on the oven for about ten minutes to cook the crust! It came out very very yummy also. I highly recommend you go to her blog to find the recipe- I figure I shouldn't steal it to post!


  1. When I was stocking my new kitchen this week, I made sure that my Pioneer Woman cookbook was proudly displayed on the counter. :)

    Love her! And love you!

  2. And while at your house last night i definitely stole a piece. Then again i guess its not stealing when you offered me a piece earlier in the evening. Good stuff though!
