Sometimes I wonder why I try to win against Pinterest. I always lose. Things always look prettier, easier and certainly more polished than anything I ever put out.
I’ll console myself and convince ya’ll that I’m proud to be keepin’ it real.
I found this pin for Apple Nachos on Pinterest last week and thought it would be a great snack for the kids. I decided to give it a try on Sunday morning. http://www.manifestvegan.com/2011/10/apple-nachos/#more-9006
The concept was great. The kids and I devoured the whole plate at 9:45 in the morning! I was so stuffed I had to skip lunch.
But, the truth is. My plate looked nothing like the pin. Natural peanut butter (or at least the Costco brand!) does not thin out and “drizzle”. It gets soft and well, soft. That’s about it. Did you also know that peanut butter can burn in the microwave? Oh yes. It does. And it smells like burnt hog hair and looks like a crumbly mess of… you can use your imagination.
But, it was delicious. And easy, and sort of healthy. We ate the equivalent of two large apples, a banana, some nuts and some peanut butter in one sitting.
