It's Day 4 of the Write 31 Days challenge and gosh... was it a day!? Today was one of those homeschooling days that made me doubt my choice to stay home with my kids. Maybe if I'd have had a big slice of this Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie, things wouldn't have been so bad.
What happened? Well, teaching a child to read is hard. Teaching 4 children in 4 different grades is really hard. Today it involved tears and frustration and cutting the lessons short to avoid full-blown meltdowns.
I mean... it's peanut butter and chocolate. In a pie. That has to help everybody feel better and be a little less stressed out!
Our day did get better... After I decided we didn't have to learn all.the.things. today, the little one finished up his letter matching game and was smiling when he matched them all. The older kids finished off the afternoon on the trampoline and in the sunshine.
I retreated to the recliner with some ibuprofen and Little Debbie cakes.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie
If I'd have been a little more motivated, I might have whipped up this pie, but I was just emotionally exhausted. I was also physically sore from my kettlebell exercise yesterday (the first time in ages!). I just wanted to curl up under a blanket and pray my headache would ease up.
Most of all, I hoped that I'd miraculously wake up with already-educated children tomorrow? Maybe??
So, are you ready for the recipe? This pie is really easy to pull together. The hardest thing is the 2 hours of waiting while it chills and sets up! Who wants to wait for pie for 2 hours?? Nobody - that's who! If you'd like, you can skip the homemade crust and use a store-bought frozen one. I'm not ashamed to say I use that shortcut all the time!
