Is anybody here? Is that an echo I hear? Sorry I’ve not been much of a blogger lately but things are starting to slow down around here. I haven’t been knitting or crafting as much over the last 9 months but I’m hoping to change that soon.

For now I’ll post about a recipe we tried out. It’s a graham cracker recipe from smitten kitchen. We ended up using our new sheep cookie cutter we got at the Maryland sheep and wool festival. I told Dax we could make sheep smores with our sheep graham crackers.

We went a little too heavy with the cinnamon and sugar but you can just brush it off if it’s not to your taste.

I hope everybody is doing well and enjoying summer.
Take care!


Peanut Butter Balls

I know peanut butter has been put on the list of bad foods lately but I have to say it hasn’t stopped me from eating it. I love peanut butter. I eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at least 3 times a week. It’s my food that I eat when I’m hungry and in a hurry.

Now if you add chocolate to the equation then all the better. So with that being said this is what I made for my sweeties on Valentine’s day.

They are peanut butter balls (pbb). I got the recipe from here and they turned out great. The trick to getting the chocolate to stick to the pbb is to make sure the pbb are frozen. Also make sure the chocolate is good and melted.
If not it will just clump to the pbb. I can see adapting the recipe in the future to make it seem a little healthier, maybe adding rolled oats and raisins or something.

Dax was telling me about a group of friends of hers, (all girls) that has decided that they were going to celebrate Valentine’s Day by getting all dressed up and going out to eat at McDonalds. Then they were going to wait till midnight and go to Walmart to buy all the VDay candy that goes on sale, LOL.

I hope that you all have a great Valentine’s Day, no matter how you celebrate it.
