My apologies these aren’t the quality photos I usually produce. It had been a looong day and my iphone  just had to do.

Yesterday we had a bit of a cook-over with Patty and Katy. Good times, good food, and good company!
We all walked away with a weeks worth of meals and a peanut butter pie! This recipe came from “Hoosier Mama Book of Pie” it’s a no-bake extravaganza that is extremely rich and satisfying.
