Peanut Butter Pie for those I love


Happy Monday, ya'll! This is my last "quiet" week until back to working full time. I have lots to do on my "to-do" list this week to get prepared, but I am excited. The hubs and I had a great weekend. We started off the weekend with a delicious dinner out. Saturday and Sunday the hubs worked outside on fixing/adding fencing to our backyard. He didn't finish the fence this weekend, but made great head way!



We can't wait until the fence is all fixed so that we can let the pups out in the yard and not worry about them running into the street. Last night we both worked on the fence until the sun went down. We were then starving and I ran in to cook dinner. The hubs put the pork tenderloin on the grill and I threw together a salad, a mixture of green beans and black beans and some brown rice. I wasn't overly in love with the pork tenderloin marinade that I did. It was too salty for my liking and well, I just wasn't "wowed" with the recipe so I won't be sharing it. We scarfed down our meal and felt much better after we had food in our bellies.

After dinner and cleaning up we plopped ourselves on the couch and watched two shows of Breaking Bad (3rd season). We also had Peanut Butter Pie. It was so yummy! This is a recipe I've had forever, but rarely make it. Not sure why I always forget about it as it is sooo good. When you cut it, it is a little pudding like---so not very pretty for a picture. Hense, no slice pics. :)
