'round here we've been sleeping in and cuddling with little people who like to sneak into my bed.
'round here sisters have been getting along(mostly!) and spending time together.
this photo was not staged.
'round here we entertain heroes at breakfast.
'round here i've been fluffing and cutting fresh blooms off of my bushes.
'round here i've been nursing a broken/disjointed pinky toe.
i stubbed it on an old metal school chair one night and thought i was going to die.
over two weeks later, it's finally healing!
'round here brothers have been playing well(for the most part)
and can you even believe how big they are getting?
i can totally see how they will look when they grow up in this picture.
little men in the making.
'round here we took a trip to our favorite thrift and it didn't disappoint.
$12 later, we had all this and much more.
maddie found the perfect vintage birthday gifts for her friend and eleanor found two
long skirts(dad approved) that are super cute!
'round here(in an effort to rest my toe) and hang out with the kids more, we watched my favorite movie #ofalltime,
pride and prejudice.
pride and prejudice.
can you say couch potato?
'round here the kids have been painting quite a bit.
a little summer art, if you will.
'round here we brushed up on our schoolwork.
everyone is thrilled as you can see. :)
'round here, i have been loving this IKEA mag.
i can find about 10 places i would put that fabric covered hanging lamp and so much more.
'round here we have been trying a whole lot of new recipes.
and some people don't appreciate the abundance of eggplant and summer squash in their soup.
so a few weeks ago, i went and bought a smash book with the intention to use it for a special recipe book.
then i saw carissa had done the same thing!
how cool is that?
my girls hunted down a recipe for silken chocolate peanut butter pie that was dairy free, so it met the qualifications to go in the smash recipe book....IF we made it and loved it.
well, we made it, ate it, loved it.
end of story.
now you have to, too.
SILKEN CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER PIE
1 cup non dairy dark chocolate chips
1 package tofu(we used 12 oz. firm tofu)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup evaporated cane juice(i'm going to try agave nectar next time)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
graham cracker crust
you can make your own which would be best using earth balance instead of butter
you can buy one at the store like we did for times sake and just make sure you pick one with the least amount of ingredients(no dairy for us)
1. melt chocolate chips on low heat...let cool
2. place tofu, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla in food processor or blender until smooth.
3. add cooled chocolate and blend again
4. pour into crust and refrigerate until firm.
5. garnish with raw peanuts
i kid you not, this pie tastes like the dreamiest reeses peanut butter pie EVER.
there will never be enough of it.
hope you try it!
