Peanut Butter Jelly Time

Last night was one of those nights that neither me or my husband were in the mood to make dinner. We decided to have a date night in, but cooking was just not appealing.

It’s also really not date night in unless there’s some kind of dessert involved, but with the sugar detox, I was pretty much out of options at home. To the store we went!

Right next to the grocery store is a restaurant called UNO that has really good pizza. It was definitely calling my name as we walked by. We picked up their “Farmer’s Market” pizza, which has carmelized onions, eggplant, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and more.

All the slices were pretty normal sized, except this little teeny one that I had to have. How cute is it?

Teeny slice!

It took me about two bites to eat that little guy. The pizza was so satisfying, and the crust was really buttery and crunchy. Mmm!

After dinner, I was ready to whip up some no-sugar-added dessert. I’ll recap the whole sugar detox experience tomorrow, but the week has been going really great. I don’t really feel like I’m craving sweets, but I needed something. 

I picked up some Polaner all natural fruit spread at the store. I get this stuff all the time, but was just out. It’s amazingly sweet for having no sugar added. Just a bunch of fruit juices.

I decided to make what I’ll call peanut butter & jelly pudding. This undoubtedly makes me think of Peanut Butter Jelly Time.

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY PUDDING

I used…

  • Fage plain 0% Greek Yogurt (my fave) 
  • 2-3 tbsp. PB 2 (as powder, not mixed with water)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp. jelly

I threw the first 3 ingredients into the Greek yogurt & mixed, and then topped it with the peanut butter & jelly. This was surprisingly satisfying & plenty sweet.

I used to think plain Greek yogurt was so sour until I started using Fage. I love Chobani, but I find that their plain version is way too sour to me. Fage is somehow better.

So yummy! Although I had this for dessert, this would make a really good afternoon snack too. Or you could even have it for breakfast.

After I had my “dessert,” we watched Argo. So good!

ORGANIZATION CHALLENGE

Again, I am so excited to be doing the Organization Challenge with some of you. However, this week I was just not motivated to clean or organize anything, which is quite odd for me.

But the hubby got me this awesome to-do list pad for my birthday, so hopefully after a list or two, my motivation will return.

To Do List

This is like the holy grail of to-do lists for me. Love!

I hope you have a great Saturday! I’m off to squeeze in a work out, just chill, and then go to a Tupperware party later 

Questions for You: 

  • Are you a to-do list person? Why or why not? 
  • Challenge participants, how has your organizing been going? Making progress or unmotivated?
