Peanut butter and Potatoes
That is what it was like outside my house today so I figured I could treat you all to a mid-week blog post.
I scoured the internet for hours trying to find a recipe that worked with the ingredients in the cabinet. Good ol' Paula Deen offered this one up to me, with a mere 4 ingredients couldn't say no.
In order to make this somewhat lackluster recipe more blog-worthy I used white chocolate peanut butter
Then to really outdo myself I used a combination of dark chocolate peanut butter and milk chocolate to make a coating for the cookies
Here are the finished results just waiting to be eaten:
And now on to the potato portion! Making potato skins required me to scoop out potato innards, but I refused to let them go to waste so my mom and I embarked on a gnocchi adventure.
Here are the gnocchi awaiting to be boiled:
They weren't the tastiest gnocchi we have ever eaten, far too soft and fragile, so we did a little parmesan-ing in hopes that they would solidify a bit in the oven. Here is the finished product sitting on my plate:
They weren't too terrible, but we are determined to make them again with improvements.
I hope you all stayed warm and dry today!
