Peanut Butter Smores

Happy Wednesday, All!  How has your week been?  We have had a productive one with dashes of fun thrown in!  Once again, our humble abode is in major upheaval - but for a good cause! We are replacing the flooring in our kitchen, and can I just say, it REALLY needed it!  This was going to be our most expensive project on the list, but God gave us a great big blessing! We were looking for a laminate flooring to match what we put down several years ago in other parts of our house.  The Mr.'s brother just pulled his laminate flooring out of his house, and it is a very close match!  So, we received our laminate flooring for FREE!  What was supposed to be our most expensive project is going to cost us absolutely nothing!  Isn't that just so like God?

Our week has also had some three wheeling, playing in the sprinklers, teaching Mr. G how to tie shoes and counting down until Papa and Nina come!  Three weeks from today, my parents AND my grandparents and three of my brothers and sisters will arrive!  Our family is very excited about this big event! 

(Just a side note here:  Because of all the remodeling we've been doing, I haven't posted any family fun pages. That's not to say we haven't had any fun! :)  But we have been doing lots of work.  I will probably not post another fun page until the month of June.)

I'm sorry I missed posting the Tummy Tempting Tuesday recipe yesterday.  We had a huge windstorm/thunderstorm yesterday afternoon and were without internet the rest of the day.  I do have a recipe for you, though....just a day late!  I'm fairly certain it will still be yummy, though! :)  This is what I call a FUN recipe - fun to make and fun to eat.  Hope you enjoy it!

Peanut Butter Smores
8 large (home made are the best) chocolate chip cookies
Hot fudge ice cream topping
4 large marshmallows
4 large peanut butter cups 

Spread the bottoms of four cookies with fudge topping.  Roast a marshmallow just the way you like it.  Carefully, place the marshmallow and a peanut butter cup on each fudge topped cookie.  Top with remaining cookies and serve immediately!

You can also place your marshmallow on your cookie and put it in the microwave for a few seconds if you do not want to go to the trouble of roasting it!  It makes a great treat for those winter days when it seems like summer may never come!
