3 protein butter cups stacked on a table

You guys.  Today, I am tired.

And not tired as in just-give-me-a-5-second-cat-nap-and-I’ll-be-golden kinda tired. Tired as in, let me sleep-for-the-rest-of-my-life-because-bears-get-to-sleep-for-half-their-lives-and-I-am-a-human-so-I-should-have-more-privileges-than-a-bear-so-my-whole-life-is-permissible kinda tired.

You get it.

You know why I’m tired?  I’ll give you ONE GUESS.

Yep, if you’ve been here long enough, you probably guessed that Mr. FFF was up to his usual antics again.

So, last night we went to bed. I was tired (which is why people go to bed RIGHT?) but, clearly, Mr. FFF? He was not so much.

Just as my eyes were about to shut and I was about to end LA LA land, I hear “CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT, IT IS WHERE WE ARE”

Yes, an impromptu “Lion King” serenade happened in Chez FFF.

There was even snapping and arm flailing.  I think it was supposed to be dancing but, really, no matter how hard you try you can’t dance normally whilst laying down.

Car dancing though, is a favorite of mine. But, that’s neither here nor there.

After he finished his song I proceeded to ask “So, are you done?” And he replied “Are you impressed?”

“No.  I want to sleep.”


So, how are you today? I hope that you got enough sleep to make up for my lack of it.

Now, I must tell you that there was a silver lining to my own personal night on Broadway.

I woke up to these healthy peanut butter cups in my freezer, ready to be devoured.  I didn’t have to even THINK about mixing some oatmeal recipe up and having to do the awful, laborious task of putting it in the microwave for the PERFECT amount of time, so that it isn’t runny but it isn’t a solid hockey puck.

You know, first world problems.

Side note: Why is it that the recipes you think are going to be the easiest to develop are the HARDEST?  I had to make these protein cups eleventy billion times to get them perfecto.

Which, was kind a good thing.  Taste testing was notsohard. Open Next Page To Continue Reading
