Sunday Snapshot

Sunday Snapshot

Grandpa took over the kitchen Sunday afternoon
with two adorable little sous chefs at his side.

He's taken a very long time to perfect this recipe.
Experimenting with a little of this.
Adding a dash of that.
Coming up with the perfect combinations
of peanut butter gooey goodness.

And decadent home-made fudge sauce.
Made the old-fashioned way.

Throw in a little heavy whipping cream
whipped to frothy peaks of creamy goodness.
Just like the old days.

Filling the deep dish pie plate
with graham cracker goodness.
Topping it with the old-fashioned fudge sauce.

Folding the whipped cream into the peanut butter
gooey goodness and smothering all that fudgey yum with
the light and fluffy result.
Perfecting his recipe until he was ready to share it.

The sous chefs had to go to bed
before the masterpiece was complete.
And sent to the freezer to set and chill.

Notice that little smidge missing on the side?
Grandpa had to test it and make sure it all
turned out okay before he and his team
presented it to the party.

Peanut Butter Fudge Pie
created with love by Grandpa, Baby Blue Eyes and LadyBug.

And devoured in mere minutes at our Fourth of July cook-out!
The only sound heard during the devouring
was the moans and groans of delight.
