In addition to the balls, guac, and veggies we made for the big Thanksgiving meal yesterday, I decided to give Averie’s Peanut Butter Cups! a whirl. Right after I pressed publish, I zipped down stairs and started cookin’:
I was SO excited to try these out. For the most part, I followed her recipe exactly, and they turned out gloriously:
And then I decided to be creative when I ran out of dark chocolate (the horror!!!)
Peanut Butter Hugs Cups!
No, of course I didn’t pour the bottom and run out of dark chocolate and used white chocolate as a substitute, I meant to create hugs! Are you believing me? haha For these, I used dark chocolate dreams pb in the middle instead of the organic plain pb in the ones above. From what I hear, both versions were a phenom! Thanks, Averie
They hardened in just enough time and we were out the door. One Kombucha ride later, and we were at my auntie’s house:
Yesterday my Aunt had an early Thanksgiving dinner at her house. My aunt is SUCH a good cook. When I think of my aunt’s food I think of rib-sticking homemade yummy goodness! Well, this year it was the same, except for me, I was opting out on the turkey! My game plan was to keep lowkey when loading up my plate. I started at the dish next to the turkey, and by the time I got back around to it, I didn’t have room for it anyway! (Forgot my camera –in the car, apparently – for the whole trip though…*sad face* – but my cousin’s going to send me some of her pics.) So I just found my way to the dinner table, sipped my wine, and ate my whole platefull of goodness, and no one even noticed I was worrying for nothing.
My reasoning for doing this was because I just don’t find Thanksgiving as a great time to be like, “Oh hey, by the way, I don’t eat any meat anymore! OK, continue eating your turkey.” It’s just not the right time or place.
Again, my worrying was for nothing, and we all had a great time.
After feasting, all of the girls, and a couple of the guys took a nice walk and hike. We all got super muddy but it was so fun that none of us cared. Such a blast. Such pretty views too (sad, again )
So this morning, I just finished a bowl of stovetop oats! I haven’t made stove top oats since the beginning of summer, I think!
Just how I like em – with a smashed nanner, flax, blueberrys, and Naturally Nutty on top:
Delish! Now I’m hoping it digests soon, because I have a 5 miler to get in before my mom comes over. We’re going to make a quick trip to Lululemon Hooray! I just found out that the cruise I’m going on not only has a gym, and a track, but also aerobics classes! So I have to get a couple new pieces for the trip of course. Is it lame that I’m that excited for aerobics classes on the cruise ship? I didn’t think so either
Sorry for the somewhat lame postage. See ya tomorrow with hopefully some sweet Lulu goodies
Have a wonderful day everyone!
