Monday Munchies

Duh duh duh duh! (Imagine trumpets flaring, and royal, rich looking people standing around.)

it's Peanut butter play dough time!

I (yes, I) love to make and play with Peanut Butter Play dough. Seriously, it's peanut butter and play dough combined! Edible Play dough!

So before I babble on for too long, here's the recipe:

1 C. Creamy Peanut Butter

2 C. Powdered sugar (some recipes use dry milk, but this tastes SO much better!)

1/2 C. Honey

Then: Mix, mix, mix, mix, mix some more, make your children mix, and finally mix the mixture. (Have you ever said a word so many times it loses it's meaning? Well, that's what just happened to me!) Or you can use an electric mixer (like a kitchen aid thinger...)

Last: ENJOY!

Wow... It's been awhile!

Hello all you! I'm back! Well, technically I was back on Saturday but haven't had any computer time since! That also means I haven't had any time to upload any photos, so I guess you don't get any pictures either... :)

And now, Introducing:


Disclaimer: This picture isn't todays recipe. I'm sorry, and yes I DO know that they look delicious.

A new part of the Pattern Impossible blog family. Every Monday I'll have a new recipe, from the web, or a family tradition, or somewhere. Maybe I'll even make it up on the spot. BUT! Let me warn you now... it will not taste good unless a miracle is involved. So we'll stick to pre-made recipes. :)

Well, todays is over at The Thrifty Chick blog. This recipe looks delicious. (Notice how I say looks not is... I haven't tried it yet.) But maybe I will. Tonight looks pretty free.

I'm not feeling very crafty lately though, as I bet you can tell. When you feel that way, how do you get back into the mood? I really need help. My sewing machine hasn't been touched in weeks. Pathetic, I know. :(

Well, I will see you tomorrow or next week or whenever I feel like it, so until then, Enjoy your LIfe!

Is it just me...

or does anyone else wish they lived in the time of barn-raising, greased pig wrangling, small town living, Little House on the Prairie time period?

WARNING: In case you haven't guessed by now, this isn't a craft related post

Maybe it's just Reading too many Marcia Lynn McClure romances (oh gosh, how I love those books!) or watching too many reruns of Little House while sewing, or even visiting the Bar J Wranglers (I'm talking laugh your head off funny) but oh how I wish I lived then!

And those cowboys! Stop me now!

(Yeah, I know that's John Wayne, but boy does he make one good cowboy!)

Now, I'll go back to dreaming, and you can surf some more blogs, but hey! I got you thinking about it, huh?
