Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

The first day, this pie is softer and creamier, but the next day it is quite solid and I think I prefer it the next day. It is rich!  It is also so ridiculously good that it was gone in less than 24 hours and only Ian and I were eating it. Chocolate and Peanut Butter - the perfect pairing!  I totally overate this weekend and even today. It was Jon's birthday week (May 1st is his birthday) and I used it as an excuse to bake - Made Chunky Chocolate Chip cookies (on my blog), Chocolate Layer Cake (new recipe) and an Apple Cake - and then this decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. The boys visited us on the mountain. I made a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, such as Mock Sweet Potato Pie, Hot German Bacon Potato Salad (for my eldest son - his favorite), veggies including deep fried plantain (totally over the top decadent, using ripe plantain - tastes like donuts almost - but chewy and crispy). Phew! Sheer decadence!. Yep, and we won't count that before the turkey dinner, we had a big brunch with my low-carb English Muffins, fried eggs, bacon and fruit salad. Ugh, I said to Ian that today I didn't want to eat much and could I just make him a quick couple of English Muffins and he could add breakfast fixings. However, I saw his longing for pizza and melted, so we had Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Pizza, page 64, Splendid Low-Carbing for Life, Volume-1 with my German Bacon Salad on page 22. LOL NOW I really need to steer clear of the scale for a few days, while I have some slightly more spartan days. Yikes!! Jennifer
