peanut butter banana milk

I changed my blog.
Do you like it?
For the longest time, I have wanted to make a header with pictures on it.
I kept saying to myself,  Oh, I will do it next week... And that next week turned into next month, which turned into two months, which turned into...
Yeah, you get the picture.
You know what I have decided? When we make goals for ourselves, it is easy to procrastinate them into oblivion. I have a problem with that. But if I wake up one day and say, "I am going to organize my room today or I am going to clean out all that junk in my storage room, and NOTHING is going to get in my way!!"  Then I am able to accomplish that goal that I have been putting off for so long. The hard part is not letting anything get in your way. Sometimes that means letting your children run wild for a few hours or allowing the dishes to pile up for a day. In my case, I had to ignore the world for a few hours. This included ignoring my boyfriend for a while. He probably wasn't happy about that. Ha.
But the point get that thing done, you accomplish that goal, you live that dream!
and. it. feels. so. good.

Can we talk about something REALLY important? It's called peanut butter.
Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods.
Especially peanut butter and bananas. together. all married and stuff.
I think if peanut butter and bananas had a baby, it would probably be the tastiest cutest thing ever.
Okay, that's kind of weird.
Please don't taste babies.

This will give you an idea of what my nut butter collection looks like---peanut butter, almond butter, white chocolate peanut butter, dark chocolate peanut butter, and Nutella of course.

It's great to have such a variety.
However, you can only eat that stuff plain for so long.
Then you get a little bored... me and the blender decided to chat.
You want to know what I like about Mr. Blender?
He lets me talk all I want and he does exactly what I tell him.
We are great friends :)

I said, "Hey Mr. Blender! How does peanut butter, bananas, and milk sound?"
He said nothing. I took that as a good sign.

Then I said, "Hey Mr. Blender! How about you mix those three things up nice and smooth for me?"
Once again, he said nothing. And then he blended up those three things---just like I told him.
I love Mr. Blender.

What do you get when you combine peanut butter with bananas?
Give up?
Peanut butter banana babies?
It's actually peanut butter banana milk.
Better luck next time :)

Peanut Butter Banana Milk
  • 1 overripe banana, peeled and frozen
  • 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk (I prefer almond, but you can use anything you like)
  • 1 teaspoon honey (or brown sugar)
  • a dash of cinnamon (optional)
  1. Throw everything in the blender.
  2. Blend until you get a smooth mixture.
  3. Show that blender who is boss.
Note: If you want it thinner, add in 1/4 cup more milk. If you want it thicker, decrease milk to about 1/2 to 2/3 cup.

Oh hey, and as you are drinking your deeeelicious peanut butter banana milk, watch this. It's pretty hilarious.

In other news...

Recently some ants decided to pay me a nice little visit.
It was cute for a while. But now they won't leave.
No matter how many times I shoo them away, they just keep coming back.

I need some ideas of how to get rid of these unwelcome guests.


  1. Sarah, this looks/sounds soooo good!! I'm definitely gonna make this. Man, you are such a great cook!

    1. Thanks Kailee! You are so sweet. I wouldn't say that I am a great cook, but I do love doing it :)

  2. Regarding the ants - If they are coming in from outside every day, then you just need to wait until they go to bed for the night, then spray around the opening they used to enter. Use one of those home sprays meant to keep insects and spiders from coming in your house. This has worked for me once or twice when the ants were located outside but discovered that the inside of my house was a good daytime resort. You can also try ant bait. The worker ants carry the bait back to the colony and feed it to the rest of the ants and the colony dies off.

    1. Sara,
      I love your advice. I have heard about the ant bait stuff before. At first it sounded a bit harsh to me, but now I am so desperate, I am thinking about killing off this entire ant colony.
      Thanks so much!

  3. Sarah,
    your blog is looking much more depth and dimension. As for the ants, this is a link to the little black bait traps I was telling you about. They work wonders.

    1. You are so nice Devin! Thanks for the tip on the ants as well :)

  4. Sarah- LOVE the new header.
    Also, I am posting a link to your granola bars. Thanks again- they were ESPECIALLY deliciouso tonight :)

    1. LAUREN! Thank you thank you!
      I am so glad that you liked them, and thanks for posting the link :)


Thanks for being a friend!
