Practically Perfect Day

Today was a practically perfect day. We got LOTS of school done. This is important as Thursday is MOPS and Friday is the PWOC Fall Rally.

I needed a good amount of cardboard for the rally - it's been found and secured. Thank you, Jenn.

A friend dropped by (and friends NEVER DROP BY out here).

Stacia and I made Peanut Butter Brownie Cups (recipe below). This was fun for us to do and gave me something to offer my friend.

The Gherkins finished school with about an hour to play with the kids in the hood - and it was touch and go for Stacia and Zander. They blessed me by wanting to FINISH school before they played. YES.

They didn't gag when they tried the Smart Dogs - though I don't think I'll buy them again.

Mike is home - so now the day is perfect.

Peanut Butter Brownie Cups (Heavenly Homemakers)

Again if you've not spent time at Heavenly Homemakers - you're missing out. Laura has great recipes and is fun to read too. I'm re-posting this here as it's become a new favorite today, and I've learned that sometimes links go dead where your favorite recipes are stored. 

1 C melted Butter
1 1/2 - 2 C Rapadura (depends on your preference)
1/2 C Cocoa Powder
2 Eggs
1 tsp Pure Vanilla 
1 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour (used soft and hard combo)
1/2 C Natural Peanut Butter
 2 Tbsp Honey

Stir together butter, rapadura and cocoa. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir well. Mix in flour until batter is mixed. Scoop batter into 24 paper lined muffin tins (fill each about 1/3 full). I used the big Pampered Chef scoop - scantily. 

Note the ipad behind  my assistant LOL 

Stir peanut butter and honey together. Spoon 1 tsp of peanut butter mixture into the center of each brownie cup. 

Bake in 350* oven for 20 min. Makes 24 Peanut Butter Brownie Cups. 

Enjoy! We did.
