Peanut Butter Pie and Pseudo-Philly Sloppy Joes

I’ve been busy today. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been making it a point to get the laundry done, so that I can spend the evening giving myself a manicure. Today has been no exception. Jay had to work, and while he and the bambino were off at the radio station, I sat on my lazy butt for about an hour, finished the 30-Day Shred, cleaned up the kitchen, and got the laundry started. By four this afternoon, it was done, which was perfect timing. I wanted to make this:

Peanut Butter Mascarpone Pie with a Cocoa Crust. I found the recipe on Fifteen Spatulas and had to make it.

I’m an impatient one, and as soon as I cleared away the dinner dishes, I dug into this. Joanne recommends chilling it for 3-4 hours and letting it sit for 10 minutes before serving. I did none of that. I think it chilled maybe 2 hours, and I sure as heck wasn’t waiting 10 minutes before slicing into it! Of course if I had done all those things perhaps my crust wouldn’t have stuck to the inside of my pie plate. But I have no shame in admitting I dug out any resistant chunks of the cocoa crust with my fork. I kind of promised Abby I’d bring her a piece, but frankly, I don’t know if it’s going to last long enough! I’m pretty gluttonous when chocolate and peanut butter are involved.

Dinner was just as awesome, although I showed more restraint there (mainly so I could have lunch on Monday).

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes. They’re good…I normally avoid what around these parts are referred to as “barbecues” or “taverns.” Where I’m from, we call them Sloppy Joes. Whatever you decide to call them, these loose-meat sandwiches are a notch above your standard “Manwich.” I didn’t do the cheese sauce like the recipe calls for, and just slapped some provolone on the sandwiches. It’s still ungodly hot out, so we just had them with some chips and applesauce. And the peanut butter pie. Gods, that was a good pie. I kind of want more, but I will refrain from going back to the freezer with a spoon! Instead, I will get to work on my manicure, while zoning out to “Casino.” Have a great night!

Sharing is caring!

    • I highly recommend it–We’re down to about a fifth of the pie now, which makes me wonder how the 3 of us in my house are going to split it! :) I think maybe I’ll be a bad mom, and wait till my son goes to bed, and then split it with my husband. Or just eat all the rest of it myself! :)

    • Mine too. I was practically foaming at the mouth waiting for that to freeze! Next up, I’m going to try your homemade peanut butter cups!
