Hey look! It's another post! This is no way guarantees future performance. Apparently I've heard too many investment commercials.
So I guess I should provide some other updates as well.
So what do I have to update.
The year started out with a bang. A bunch of changes going on in my life. Really stressful start to the year at work. A few weeks in, I was really disturbingly close to having a complete psychotic meltdown. Some may say I wasn't just close, but I was way over that line. Of course some would say I've never seen the right side of it. But I'm better now. Relatively speaking anyway. I never claimed to be the picture of normal.
I am preparing to start seeds for spring. That's all sorts of exciting. Except that I am so indecisive that I keep changing what I want to grow, where each plant goes, how I want to lay out the garden, etc. You would think, considering I now have probably double the space I have had before, I would have plenty of space for everything. But I keep adding more stuff I want to grow! Well (theorhetically anyway) I will have more posts in the future about that.
Now... I will actually publish this without a picture because it'll never get posted if I wait until I dig up my camera, take the pictures, copy the pictures over, choose one, post it... Yes I realize in the amount of time I spent typing that out I could've done all that.
This is a pretty simple recipe. A good way to get a nice sugar kick going. Maybe a way to kick off my return to blogging.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
based off Alton Brown's fudge recipe. Google it if you want that instead of my version.
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
8 oz butter
1 lb confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Coat an 8x8 pan with cooking spray or butter. Heat peanut butter and butter in a pyrex bowl, covered, for 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir. Heat for another 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir thoroughly. Stir in confectioners sugar and vanilla until combined and mixture has a dull finish. Stir in chocolate chips and let sit for a minute to allow them to soften. Press mixture into the greased pan. Chill until firm. Cut into squares.
