Peppermint Patty Day!

Peppermint Patties by Eat, Live, Run
YUM.  I love love LOOOOOVE peppermint patties!  And I found an extremely easy recipe to make them -- awesome!   (I love tastespotting.com, ha!  One search for "peppermint" has me craving SO many different types of dessert I never even knew existed.  Ahh... I just bookmarked so many recipes!)  I also found a recipe for peppermint patty brownies!  Yum!  I like brownies (maybe like, half of a piece of a brownie) once in a while (as long as it doesn't have any nuts on it!) but I think if someone offered me one of these I would have a hard time saying no!

Delish! So, today I went out to the farm that my dad's friend works at... I saw a TON of cows, including two newborn twin calves! They were just born on Tuesday, so cute. I also saw a ton of goats (hilarious. And remember my post a little while ago where I mentioned that goats have rectangular pupils? Totally true!) and a pot-bellied pig named... HOLLY. hahaha! Hopefully I'll have some photos to share with you guys tomorrow!  And, don't forget what tomorrow is... PANCAKE DAY!  Be sure to make some for breakfast!

  2. Yum! I never liked peppermint or the peppermint-chocolate combo when I was growing up, but now I think it's kind of a refreshing flavor. While still being chocolate. Which means it's awesome.

    I want to see Holly the pot-bellied pig! Awww. I used to work at a barn for horseback-riding and there was an entire petting zoo of animals; we had a goat named Wilbur, I believe, that was actually leash trained. When one of us didn't have to work we'd take him out on the leash and just walk around. He was so sweet.

    Okay, I've been craving pancakes so now I have an excuse! Yay!
