Delicious Food and A Cute Little Nugget!

Hi, friends! Happy Monday 🙂 <– Is that an oxymoron?

Are you aware that Saturday was National Peanut Butter Lovers Day? I was especially excited so I decided to double my favorite PB mug cake recipe for breakfast! And a side of iced coffee in my fave glass [GO O’S!]

National Peanut Butter Day Mug Cake

MONSTER MUG CAKE!!

It really was a monster and of course it was topped with extra peanut fluff. Because how could I not?

It rained on and off all weekend, so both days were pretty relaxing. I definitely needed that after my parents’ trip. I don’t know if they were even as exhausted as I was!

Recently, we’ve been going out for lunch instead of dinner on the weekends since it’s much less busy and cheaper. Saturday we had absolutely no desire to move around lunch time so we whipped up lunch at home and decided to swap our time out for dinner. I made, what was supposed to be an egg wrap. Except I got a little too excited with the stuffing..

This was supposed to be an egg wrap..

For dinner, we hit up Rangoon Super Stars, a Burmese restaurant that has practically the exact same menu as Burma Superstar. It’s closer to us and got great reviews so we had to do the comparison.

We also ordered a pickled mango salad but the waiter wasn’t too sure what to make of me trying to take a picture before he mixed it up, so I’ll spare you the one I actually took. In the end, I vote Burma over Rangoon. The mint jalapeno chicken could have definitely been spicier and the garlic noodles could have been more garlicky. Also, Rangoon doesn’t have their liquor license yet.. so there’s that.

Saturday night ended with some fun picture texts from a cute little nugget and her Bubbie who was happy to be babysitting. Three generations of redheads 😉

Foodie Friday: National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day!

Let’s be honest, I celebrate peanut butter everyday. Personally, I think everyone should. Peanut butter is delicious and nutritious and should be a balance part of every diet; and by balanced, I mean feel free to replace meals with jars of peanut butter. [I wish I could!]

I want you to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day the right way, so I’ve compiled a list of sweet and savory peanut butter recipes. Enjoy!
