Attention food bloggers: My recipe index is giving me a headache. Do you have any tips on how to organize it? Do you ever go through and re-do recipes to get better pictures? Do you only include what you love in your index? Or do all your posts go into it? (Such a first world problem)
So I'm really bad at sharing my food.
If I had access to my parents' photo albums, I could show you the picture of me, at 18 months old, walking around with a giant bag of bbq chips, munching as I go and not willing to let anyone else eat them.
Last week, I brought home a bag of chips as a pre-dinner snack. My husband was on his way to the sporting goods store and he spotted the bag on the counter as he walked toward the door. While I was putting groceries away, he downed half the bag of chips.
On the outside, I put the groceries away.
On the inside, I was screaming, "Those are my chips!"
Not that I didn't want him to have any. I just wanted to have them first.
And we all know that boys will eat all of something before they even realize it's gone.
And it's 2 whole miles back to the grocery store.
In order to save our marriage, I kept my mouth shut.
I ate the rest of the chips while I caught up on reading blogs.
A happy ending.
I made this fudge a couple of weeks ago. I cut it up into neat little pieces. Took some pictures. Tossed it all into a Ziploc bag and put it in the freezer.
For 3 days, everytime I walked by the freezer, I grabbed a piece.
And every time, I noticed the bag had less and less pieces to grab.
Scott was eating it too.
I had to share my fudge AND my chips?! Unbelievable. Don't even get me started on how fast ice cream has been disappearing.*
I should probably be grateful that I didn't eat all that junk food myself. We all know that eventually I would've.
Good thing he doesn't like marshmallows.
makes an 8x8 pan
1 container mini-Nutterbutters (or about 10 large), crushed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 bag Reeses' Peanut Butter chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
In a microwavable bowl, melt the chips, peanut butter, and sweetened condensed milk together. I did 45 second intervals, stirring in between. It just took a couple of minutes.
Fold in the crushed Nutterbutters.
Line an 8x8 pan with foil (you might want to spray it too) and pour in the mixture. Even it out with a spatula and stick it in the freezer for a few hours to harden.
(Then lick the bowl when your husband isn't paying attention.)
You could also stir in some mini-marshmallows once the mixture is melted (when you fold in the cookies). Do not put the marshmallows in the microwave. I had one great big failed attempt at this fudge a few weeks ago because I made the mistake of melting the marshmallows.
*Let it be noted that I would give up all the ice cream in the world if it meant he could stay here and not go back to finish up this stupid deployment.
