I know the last thing I need to be consuming is junk food. My stomach is rapidly expanding. So much so that when 1) Joe returned home after being away for four days last week, his first remark was how big my stomach had gotten while he was away; 2) when I met Kim at the movies on Wednesday, she commented on how much my stomach had grown since she had seen me on the previous Friday; 3) a certain maternity skirt no longer fits (I knew that day would come); and 4) I gained 3 pounds in 2 weeks!
So I made these peanut butter chocolate chip cookies anyway. I had been thinking about them for several days (and they don't use flour, which I need to buy). I couldn't find my semi-sweet chocolate chips, so I used milk chocolate. I think they turned out better! And they were quite irresistable, if I say so myself! (The recipe says it makes 4 1/2 dozen, which is not true. It made one sheet.)
And last night we had a chocolate fondue. Mason enjoyed dipping his giant strawberry in the melted chocolate. I was laughing at his chocolate "devil goatee." He can be a devil sometimes! (I think he had more chocolate smeared on his body than he consumed.)
