Thought I would share a few things that I have been up to while MIA.
First off are a finished knitting project or two. This is the blue vest I shared earlier. I managed to get it finished before I started on the prayer shawls that the church gave my name out to do. I made two of them before I moved on to my next project.
This is a hooded vest/poncho that I made. I really like the way that it turned out. It looks blue here, but in actuality it is a deep purple. Wonder why it looks blue in the picture?
The last thing I am going to share is a new recipe. I made a peanut butter pie one evening and it was a big hit. This is very rich and a small slice really fills you up.
Peanut Butter Pie
1 9" crust baked
1 1/4 cup peanut butter smooth (I used crunchy)
1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp melted butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup icing sugar
Beat the peanut butter and cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Gradually add the 3/4 cup icing sugar, melted butter, and vanilla, mix well. Beat the whipping cream and 1/4 cup icing sugar until soft peaks form. Stir 1/4 of this mixture into the peanut butter mixture and mix thoroughly. Fold in remaining cream gently but thoroughly. Spoon into prepared crust. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.
1/3 cup whipping cream
3 squares semi sweet chocolate
Bring cream to a boil over low heat. Remove from heat. Add chocolate, stirring until melted and smooth. Cool slightly and pour over filling, tilting pie to cover top completely. Chill for at least one hour.
Well off to try and get a bit of visiting with all of you before bed. It is going to take me awhile to catch up so please be patient with me.
Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
