I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Too Pooped To Pucker

Is anybody out there getting enough sleep these days? I know that I definitely am not and it really does start to take a toll. I find that I am spending more and more of my time trying to find ways to boost my energy. I do exercise but that does not last the entire day, sometimes you just need some type of quick fix that will get you through the rest of the day that doesn’t come with any jail time lol!

Here is a quick and easy pick me up that is great to take with you when you are on the go.

Instant Energy

1/3 c. honey
1/2 c. crunchy peanut butter
1/2 c. non-fat dry milk (whey protein)

Mix honey and peanut butter in a bowl. Stir in non-fat dry milk, a little at a time, until thoroughly blended. Shape into narrow roll. Wrap in waxed paper and chill until firm. Cut into 1 inch pieces and wrap in cellophane, makes about a half a pound.

May also shape into balls and roll in chopped peanuts, wheat germ, granola or cereal.

We use to make a very similar recipe with the kids when I had my day care center. They enjoyed making and eating it, but they sure didn't need any extra energy. :)

Just what you need Rochelle, kids with extra energy.

My kids would love this for an after-school snack. I vaguely recall eating something like this in my childhood. I'm going to have to ask my mom about it. At any rate: yum.

Thank you, Trisha

This is a good idea! Wow! I'd try this with soy nut butter and put pieces of roasted soy nuts in it and roll it in toasted coconut spiced with cardamom and orange zest. Yeah!!
