Peace Dudes...

I need someone to smack my hands when I go grocery shopping and reach for the chocolate chips. I haven't purchased any in over two years and now I know why. I was cleaning out a cabinet this past week and found a package that had about a third left in it. No, I didn't throw it away like I should have. I also found a package of banana nut muffin mix. So...I decided to make the muffins and right before I was finished I got to thinking that the chocolate chips would probably be good in there too. I don't know if you've ever had a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and covered in nuts, yummmmm. It's been about 30 years since I've had one and I decided that adding the chocolate chips to the banana muffins would be good. OMG!!! Good doesn't describe them. Chocolate chip cookies were my downfall at Christmas and I am having a hard time resisting these things too. So it must be the Chocolate chips. I am never buying them again in my whole life, ahem, well, maybe not for a long time anyway. I did have two last night and wasn't even hungry, just couldn't resist. But I haven't had one today, yet. I'm going to allow myself one after supper tonight.

It's been a quiet Sunday for me. Got my kitchen cleaned up and ready to cook supper and dirty it up again. What a vicious cycle!! Ran the sweeper and took out the garbage. Then I vegged out on the sofa and watched some things I had taped last week. Gotta watch them all so I'll be all caught up on the new ones this week.

I even remembered to water my peace lily today. I've never had much luck with house plants or outside plants for that matter. I must have a black thumb. But for some reason I've been able to keep this baby alive for the past 3 years. It took me a while to learn how to care for it and I almost lost it at one point. But I finally found its favorite window and how often it likes water. I think I was drowning it before. When I finally figured out what it needed it only had two stalks left. That was a close one.

Have a happy, healthy week.

Girl you have me wanting bananas and chocolate. Have you ever made chocolate pudding and put bananas in it. Yummo. Pretty plant. I've had a similar day to yours as far as cleaning goes and being quiet.

I love bananas and chocolate, but what I'm longing for now is a dish i saw on the cover of Southern Living: banana pudding with--get this--Nutter Butter Peanut Butter cookies instead of vanilla wafers. (I swear, I swooned when I first saw the picture.)

Your post reminded me that I have to bring home two plants from the office. I've had them for years, but I think they've just been alive because Frieda, my admin, was there to remind me to take care of them. Maybe she'll call me after I leave in April.

Your plant is looking great for one that almost kicked the bucket. Maybe freeze the muffins in individual baggies and then you may be less tempted. (o:

Chocolate chips and dark chocolate are my downfall. I can eat a whole bag of dark chocolate chips at a time. Usually, when I make pancakes, I have to add chocolate chips for all family members, and sometimes add banana to mine too. Love the combination.

Mouth is watering.
Must stop thinking.
Chocolate chips calling.

I have a black thumb too so I know what you mean about keeping plants alive! Your peace lily looks beautiful! :)

The sound heavenly! I'm with Cammy. Freeze them. Then when you can pull out one at a time....put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and it's warm and yummy...just like it came from the oven!

I LOVE bananas and chocolate!!!!!

I'm impressed that you put the chocolate chips in the muffins: I would have just wolfed them down, right out of the bag, I'm sure! ;)
