More Peanut Butter Please

by Meghann on October 13, 2008

Abbie and I enjoyed a nice leisurely walk today in the nice hot, humid air tonight. We only walked a mile and I was sweating! What happened to that nice fall weather we were experiencing? I swear it was cool here for a while and now its back in the 90s. Is it too late to change my mind about living in central Florida and move north? I’ve never actually lived in the snow, but I’m sure I can handle it. ๐Ÿ™‚

At least Abbie and I did get our afternoon stroll in. I mean how can you keep this face cooped up in the apartment all day? It’s just pitiful!

Our walk did build up my appetite which was perfect since I had a delicious meal planned for tonight. I had a wonderful one bowl meal that filled me right up.

This was a great meal. I loved all of the vegetable and the sauce on the baked tofu was awesome. I think next time I would add a few red pepper flakes for a little spice, that would pair nicely with the sweetness of the sauce.

For dessert I whipped up a Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Ball

The Peanut Butter treats I brought to work today were a hit, but sadly they are now all gone. Apparently I didn’t have enough of them last night, because that’s all I was craving tonight. So I made a quick ball of the treat. I combined peanut butter, honey, chocolate chips, and puffed brown rice until it all melded together into a ball. This is a great quick treat. It was peanut buttery, chocolatey, and yummy!

This afternoon I had a snack of Almonds that held me over through mine and Abbie’s afternoon walk.
