These peanut butter fingers disappear so fast!!  Even though they make a big batch, they just seem to disappear.  My daughter thought that I was making peanut butter cookies, but I decided to make these fast and easy peanut butter fingers.  That is because I wanted to get them in the oven and then sit down.  The weather must be making me feel lazy!  It is raining again and I was too lazy today to stand there and scoop out cookie dough.  Yes, that is why I made peanut butter fingers instead.  My son-in-law made no bake cookies and we were going to have a competition to see which one was the most popular.  I don’t think that there was a winner.  We are not so picky at our home when it comes to good food; we just know that made at home is a lot better and fresher than buying it at the store.

Peanut Butter Fingers

It is great that everybody doesn’t all love the same thing or there wouldn’t  be a need for Pinterest or any other social media sight!   Because we would all be eating the same things and creating the same things.  So I decided that it is good that everyone has their own taste; that way life is a little more interesting.  We are blessed to live in a free country where we can have so many choices and enjoy the freedoms that we do.  By the way, my son-in-law’s no bake cookies are amazing.  One day I will have him make some and then we will do a post.  It is nice to have someone that likes to make a few things once in awhile.  Food is good, but getting together is the best thing in life, so whatever you eat, enjoy it.
