Feeding The Addiction

I’ve been outside all morning, and I am so thankful to be sitting in our air conditioned house right now! We had to get CD’s car to the mechanic for a tune up this morning, and so I dropped it off and then walked the 2.5 miles back home. Then as soon as I got home, I took the dogs on a 2-mile walk. If we don’t them get walked early, then I might as well forget it as it gets too hot later in the day. In fact, it was already pretty steamy by the time we left the house, and so we stopped and played in the creek.

Radley, our little swimmer. Einstein doesn’t like the water as much.

Good thing I carbo-loaded prior to leaving the house. :)

Can you guess what I put in this morning’s papusa? Using my leftover dough from yesterday, I loaded this one up with Trader Joe’s unsalted crunchy peanut butter and 1 square of an 85% chocolate Lindt bar. I fried it up in a schmear of ghee and was in chocolate/pb heaven!

Yep, I’m still loving on some chocolate and peanut butter, and I guess the nut butter fairy must be reading my blog because look what arrived on my doorstep yesterday…

Justin’s new line of chocolate flavored nut butters. Justin, I you. Can’t wait to try these!

I also purchased something I have been eyeing for months…

I haven’t busted into these yet, but they are just screaming to be used as a topping in my next bowl of oat bran. Fortunately, I am good at pacing myself when it comes to sweets like this, and I hope to make this tub last a while.

Even though it seems like I’m eating a lot of chocolate…and peanut butter, I am getting plenty of vegetables and meat into my belly as well. However, the chocolate and peanut butter are just so much more fun to showcase, don’t you think? 😉 I’m officially 23 weeks preggo, and I’m about 5 pounds up from my original starting weight (keep in mind I lost 10 pounds my first trimester). So, all is good, and I’m right on target according to my doctor.

I’m leaving early tomorrow morning for a weekend trip to Missouri to visit my extended family. They’re throwing me my first official baby shower, and I can’t wait to see all of my cousins. Not sure what the Internet situation is going to be, but I’m hoping to post while I’m there. Thanks again to Justin for the nut butter packets. They’re going to get much use this weekend!

What is your favorite food combo these days?
