So the other day I posted chocolate peanut butter cups to make. Well I made them...I'm not a sweets person at all but oh man, theese are good.
I changed the recipe though.
In a pot I melted the following on low heat:
- 1 cup organic dark chocolate domes (I laughed when I saw them called domes on the package)
- 1/4 cup organic crunchy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
While melting (and stirring often) I chopped up 1/2 cup raw almonds. Once melted I turned off the heat and dumped in 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut and the chopped almonds. Stirred this up and spooned into a mini muffin tin. I put plastic wrap on it first for easy removal. I then popped them in the freezer.
Seriously amazing. I had to hold with a cloth as they just melt. Yum...at 225 calories each I must fight the temptation to have more!
A girl I went to high school with posted pictures of her engagement. She's a beautiful girl I will say, always has been. Her husband is some older man who owns a bunch of night clubs. They have a child together and when i saw her at the high school reunion it was clear that she is not the primary caregiver to her child or home. I also know she us unemployed.
So her husband works a lot, they hire help with the child leaving her to just work at maintaining her beauty. The funny thing is all I could think was, "Yep, that's her life." It was like I've always expected that's how she'd end up, that there was no other course of life for her then to marry a sugar daddy and land the role of standing around being beautiful. Would drive me insane, I'll be the cougar with the young good looking man hanging on my arm thanks!

- 1 cup dark chocolate chips 1/4 all natural buttery spread (Earth Balance)
- 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 cup all natural shredded coconut (no sugar added)
- 1 cup raw almonds
In a pan, add the chocolate chips, buttery spread, and peanut butter. Heat and stir until the mixture is smooth and well blended. Turn off the heat. Add the coconut and almonds and mix well. Spoon into paper lined muffin tins. Fill each tin about 2/3 full. Place in the freezer and chill until firm (about 30 minutes). Remove from the freezer. Put extra Chocolate Cups in a freezer bag and store in the freezer for future desserts. Remove from the freezer and allow to soften a little before eating.

This time I was a make-up demo model for my artist. She made latex moulds to cover my eyebrows (that was fun pulling off) and changed my lips. I then walked around a comicon type expo for 2 hours in costume. Man my feet hurt! Was great. I loved seeing the generation gap between the people who knew who I was and the people who didn't!
I was actually asked several times to have my picture taken or have someone get their picture with me which was surprising. There was only one though that I was super thrilled to have mine taken with! The guy was laughing because I was so excited. His body art was so well done, just the whole thing. Good times...

This morning I woke up late, grabbed a pair of pants out of my drawer, got dressed and ran out. Into the work day I realized I grabbed a pair I had last worn in July or August and realized they are way too big! I felt like a Jenny Craig person all day pulling up my pants that keep falling down and swimming in them. Motivation FTW!
Doesn't look like me but that is then sitting low and me not pulling at al to get excess. Note to self, pack up that size!

Bought my first pair of skinny jeans and boots. Well first off I was not expecting the jeans to even fit! Don't think I've ever fit into that size so I was amazed. These are the thoughts that traveled through my brain as I pulled on these jeans:
1. Why the fuck can I not even get these jeans over my heal, this is like pulling on a latex gimp costume for crying out loud!
2. Oh great now I have to shimmy them up my leg like pantyhose.
3. Oh sure the legs I have to work at and then they just go the rest of the way easy when I'm just about to give up...and I can do them up!
4. Why the he'll do women wear these things!? That was way too much work to get dressed.
5. Now how the hell do I get them off.
