Got Pretzels to Use Up? Check Out This Recipe List! ;-)

I’m NOT a big fan of pretzels but I DO use them when I make:

Slow Cooker Party Mix. 

The problem is, where we live, there seems to be no small bags of pretzels, just LARGE BAGS that leave me with a lot left over, when I make a batch of party mix.

Thought I’d check out some other ideas for using up pretzels today and I found this list:

27 Perfect Ways to Eat Pretzels

I’m still undecided what I’m going to try from this list, maybe the Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars or the snack mix.

But I definitely will be able to use up those pretzels! 😉

Peanut Butter: I Still ♥ It! ;-)

I’ve always been a peanut butter fan! 🙂

I  ♥ it, especially the natural, organic (with no-salt) kind, that contains only peanuts.

I feel sorry for children who can’t eat this wonderful spread, due to allergies etc. It was a staple when I was a kid. Not the case anymore it seems. 

But for those of us without allergy concerns, peanut butter (in moderation, it’s always about moderation isn’t it?) can apparently be good for us (and not just delish) for health and many other benefits.

I also like to add a tablespoon of pb to my morning smoothie. Apparently added to soy milk, peanut butter provides a complete protein source.
 
This provides an alternative to adding protein powders to smoothies. And some protein powders can be hard to digest; so I like this option instead, for adding protein.
  

 Aren’t these yummy looking? Yummy to eat too. 😉
                        
I’ve made these many times:
 
I do cut back on the sugar though, by about 1/2 and they are still “plenty sweet” IMO!
 
My dear mom made these too.
 
What bliss after school with an ice-cold glass of Mmoooo….teehee…that’s what we called milk. 😉
