I know! It's JUST a spoon!

Can I just say how much I love this bamboo spoon I purchased at Starbucks.
It was on clearance for $3.00.
I just had to get it!

I keep it right on top of my coffee maker.

I don't ever have to wash it since it only ever touches coffee grounds.

It's plenty long enough to reach way down inside the bag of coffee.

and it's just feels good in my hand.

I have this thing for wooden spoons!
I love the craftsmanship.
maybe it's because I have fond memories
of my Mom spanking me with one as a kid.
(ha ha, just kidding!)
Well, actually that did happen once...
just once people...
but that was old school discipline!

I am glad I bought it!
It has worked out really great.

here come the chickens!

If I am outside...
they are right there!!
They only like me cause I bring them food!

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Peanut Cake

I realize I just did a post about about making a friend a birthday cake, but...this cake cannot be ignored! It is a peanut butter cup, chocolate peanut butter cake! I thought I was proud of my red velvet cake, but jeez...this thing is gorgeous! (Especially to a chocolate/peanut butter lover like myself) I won't take up a lot of time with words, as this cake needs no words to describe! Just look at it and drool!...and plan to make it very, very soon! I will tell you that the cake itself is chocolate, and the frosting is made of peanut butter, powdered sugar, heavy cream and vanilla. It is positively to die for!! I'll cut to the chase and show you these luscious photos! The recipe and link will follow.

I found this recipe on a wonderful food blog called Annie's Eats. Here is the link for the recipe. annies-eats.com
