Today is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.  I am a peanut butter lover, that is for sure!  I have a whole post with Peanut Butter Recipes

Did you do anything to celebrate the holiday?  Julie and Janetha both mentioned the holiday.

I celebrated with a few spoonfuls of DCD that I reviewed here

And I ate my one-a-day Special K barYes, lately it’s been a one-a-day habit.  I like it.

Stacked Special K Bars

I mean, look at that peanut butter + brown sugar + Karo syrup.  That is heaven in my mouth.

If I had more time, I could have baked up a loaf of Peanut Butter Banana Bread (Vegan & GF)

Or made a batch of No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars (Vegan & GF)

If you missed my Peanut Butter Recipes Post, you may want to mosey on over to it and channel your inner peanut butter lover.

In other matters, it was a sunny day here and I took advantage of some of the great weather and got a 2 mile run in while pushing a 75 pound kid + jogging stroller combo into the wind and up hills.  Huff and puff much?

And then I came inside, did 20 minutes of  weight lifting moves and yoga moves.  With my 12 pound dumbbells and yoga mat.  Whatever comes to mind, that’s what I do.

I don’t have time or energy for more!  So far, it seems to be working for me and so no reason to change it up.

From my Cookbook Review & Free Cookbooks post from earlier, it was interesting to hear what you look for in a cookbook, and whether or not you make recipes from cookbooks, blogs, or improvise.  Most of you said you look for great pictures in a book (me too and many books lack this I’ve found), ease of preparation of the recipe, and commonly found ingredients.
