Monday Musings

1. Thanks for all of the slow cooker recipe suggestions! It’s definitely going to come in handy, and I can’t wait to get cookin’.


2. TJs has finally come out with an organic peanut butter… and it is perfection. Smooth, drippy, slightly sweet (without any added sugar) and salty (just a bit of salt added), with a delightful roasted peanut flavor.


This will definitely be my new go-to peanut butter!


3. The friendly folks from flapJacked (love the name!) sent me a few of their protein pancake mixes to try.


I haven’t broken into ’em yet, but once I do I will certainly let you know how they are! I love the convenience factor, and the flavors are enticing.


4. The company that makes Honest Tea sent me their new product line to try!

Introducing, Honest Fizz:


Sweetened with stevia, these all-natural beverages are a tasty calorie-free alternative to soda. My favorite is the “Professor Fizz” – a Dr. Pepper-inspired flavor.


5. I attempted to make chocolate peanut butter pudding (yes, another one – this time a stovetop version) and ended up with a thick chocolate peanut butter sauce.

Delicious? Yes. Pudding? No. But I’m not giving up! This pudding will be perfected.

  1. I have tried a protein pancake mix before and actually loved it, but I haven’t heard of FlapJacked (adorable name!). I’ll have to pop over to their site and see where you can get those. Hopefully they are available at Trader Joe’s.

  2. Dietary Supplements are very important part of your diet. Ya ofcourse peanut butter forms the perfect healthy food. The chocolate peanut butter looks very tempting. I would love to try it at my home.

  3. thank you for the post. I really like your fresh ideas. The peanut butter you recommend sounds interesting, and I will be happy to buy it once I come across it in the supermarket.

  4. I plan on making a TJ’s run this weekend! It’s been almost a year since I’ve been there…not good! I am strict about my peanut butter, (I am obsessed with JIF-creamy). But I am willing to try THIS TJ’s PB! Thanks for sharing! That PB sauce looks amazing and I agree with Haley–banana soft serve and that sounds incredible!

  5. Wow, great idea that I would love to try…you may become as famous as that “Reece” guy who had a liking for peanut butter and chocolate!

  6. I love peanut butter and I am always on the lookout for something new to try so this organic butter from Trader Joe’s is definitely going to be on my shopping list.

  7. I love peanut butter! I usually use it in combination with the nutella or any chocolate spread together in a bread or a pancake, tastes really great! I also love to try those natural beverage, that would be a great alternative for the sodas which are good because it is healthier and richer in vitamins and minerals. :)

  8. The flapjacks with the creamy peanut butter sounds like a goer for me. Not sure how healthy the peanut butter would be if it is “creamed” though.
