Peanut Butter Pie
- 1.5 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- pre-made pie crust
Whip cream with 1/4 cup sugar. Mix all other ingredients until smooth and fold in whipped cream until well blended. Pour mixture into crust and chill for several hours before serving.
Hopefully, Jason will like this treat for after dinner tonight. On second thought...that might send him back to scrounging around my kitchen looking for more products for me to cook with...

Created To Be His Help Meet: Discover How God Can Make Your Marriage Glorious by Debi Pearl
But, I warn everyone that I give this book to that they will have a love-hate relationship with it. At times, they will feel like shredding it, burning it, or just throwing it in the trash. That's because the wisdom it presents is not worldly wisdom and it goes against everything most girls/women are taught.
I've read it FOUR times and parts of it still make me cringe. But it works!
If you are interested, I have a few free copies that are set aside for anyone that wants one (just send me an e-mail). Use the above link to purchase extra copies as gifts.

This year, our focus with Emmett is to train him in the joy of hard work. As we do this, we are having him copy some great quotes and verses -- which is hard work in itself for a young boy with boundless energy.
Here he is copying Proverbs 22:29:
"Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men."
And, here is Luke 6:38.
If you have any good Bible verses, quotes, book recommendations or activity ideas that help reinforce and encourage hard work, please send them our way. We are always looking for new material.
