Is it really Monday?
Well, actually it is really Sunday evening.
At least that is when I am writing this.
Let’s just say I have a belly full of dinner and these little peanut buttery things I’m about to share with you.
This past week I
burned trashed my 2 year old house shoe boots.
They were so comfortable and I donned them in my p.j.’s every single night until the soles were ripped wide open and my slippers were “talking.”
It was tough to move on, but I’m a new woman.
Flaxseed is also changing my life.
Well, it is basically rocking my little cooking/baking world.
Watch out vegan desserts, I am coming for you.
Let’s continue on this flax train w/ some 3-ingredient bars.
Yea, i said 3-ingredients…but not just any bars, peanut butter bars.
Flourless peanut butter bars.
VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE.
Say what now?
Y’all know how I feel about peanut butter, so you can imagine how I wrapped my brain around this one.
On another note…I have lost my ever-loving mind.
Went to the store to get Princess some dog food.
Only I accidentally overlooked the package which was labeled “puppy food.”
Yep, she’s pretty much a 14-year-old Yorkie. Definitely not a puppy.
I mean, that would be like someone serving me IN-N-OUT instead of Whataburger.
Clearly not the same thing. IN-N-OUT is a crime. I’m a Texan y’all…WHAT-A-BURGER is where it’s at.
Thankfully, she still ate the food.
If I could just feed her peanut butter cookies we would all be better off.
A girl can dream can’t she?
