Tasty tuesday::peanut butter texas sheet cake

I found this recipe in the Gooseberry Patch Our Best Quick & Easy Recipes Magazine. "Texas Sheet Cake" is usually chocolaty, fudgy goodness. this is obviously a different twist. and since i am a firm believer that peanut butter is the next best thing to chocolate, i thought i'd give it a try. and i'm glad i did. give it a try!! you won't be sorry!

Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake
2 c all purpose flour
1/4 c creamy peanut butter
2 c white sugar
2 eggs beater
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 c buttermilk
1 c butter
1 c water
peanut butter icing (see below)
chopped peanuts for garnish

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside. Combine butter, water and peanut butter and a saucepan over medium heat: bring to a boil. Add to flour mixture and mix well and set aside. Combine eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. Add to flour mixture. Spread batter into a 15x10 jelly roll pan. Bake @ 350 for 25-28 minutes or until cake springs back when gently touched. spread peanut butter icing over warm cake and garnish.

Peanut Butter Icing
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 c + 1 T milk
16 oz powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until spreading consistency. (careful, it will drip a little over the side of the cake so keep bringing it back to the center.)

yall better leave some comments...

it's not spectacular and probably doesn't live up to the build up, but i lurve it. i'm not sure how i lived with this insanity for years, but i did.

more ugliness

and AFTAH...

thank you lowes, for MDF and black gloss spray paint.

my hubby built those shelves and even a work table to go on the other side of the 1901 dryer and it hides our hampers/extra laundry baskets.
this was the boys' room before when it was only luke's room. it's the best before paint color i have.' room color. i don't remember what that is, but since the house is back on the market kill me now it was a better choice for touch ups. cause those boys are wild.

now, a few notes...
we have cancelled our trip to gulf shores b/c BP are morons. however, i'm going to see paula over in savannah/tybee island!! we'll be swangin' through atlanta on the way there and on the way back to check out the zoo and acquarium. it should be tiring as all get out fun!!

next, i never did see those stinkin quarters. i checked for 17 days and the docs office told me to consider them passed since the xrays 10 days prior to my last call showed them to be in the large intestine and he has no problems. works for me.

4 letter words

right now i have about a jillion of them running through my head. me and blogger are at a major war. i have just spent 1.5 hours on a honkin post showing off what i have been working on around here. and do you know that with the touch of one button, not even my hubby could retrieve it? why? b/c it apparently "autosaved" a couple of seconds after that change. people, imma say it loud and proud. i hate with a bunch of bad words blogger. you can see that i had to resort to flickr below just to get one thing shown. if i'm in a good mood, i'll work on it again. however, my baby girl turns 2 on thursday and her dora party is saturday. so in the next few weeks, if blogger will get it's head out of it's hiney (cause this blog is at most PG) i'll try again to show you why i'm so neglectful. anyway, let's just say that i "redid" my shelving/storage in my laundry room, painted the boys room, and have been working on garage organization...oh, and our house is back on the market. (i'll take that valium in the economy pack please, kay?) and i'm just gonna say it...i have a date with edward for the whole stinkin trilogy on june 29th. that may make it a little better. maybe.

cause i like to keep it real

if i could get all of these to post together, i would. but i can't. and i hate blogger.

also, if you click on the picture, it will take you to my flickr photostream. you can see what i did to my laundry room and i think i put in a picture of the after of the boys room. it used to be cherry. now it' color the living room is.

sometimes life doesn't just get in the way
