IT’S NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER DAY! And it’s no secret around here that I love peanut butter. Like, to an unhealthy extent. Like, eat-it-straight-out-of-the-jar-with-a-spoon extent or a substitute-graham-crackers-for-spoons extent or a literally-everything-is-better-with-peanut-butter-extent.

So yeah, a lot.

thursday things (& THE WINNER IS…)


I can’t believe that February is over and that March is looming right around the corner.  Like, RIGHT around the corner.  Like, TOMORROW around the corner.  I’m so not ready.  Soon it will be spring, I will be another year older, and next thing I know I will blink and I’m planning Thanksgiving and Christmas menus… Oh my!

I found a new instagram cat to be obsessed with.  Well, he’s not really new, but I haven’t shared him with you yet.  His name is Roku, and he is amazing.  To prove to you how amazing he is, here are some of his pictures.


Oh, and he even has his own youtube page.

I saw these wall decorations on sale at Homegoods the other day and immediately sent a pic to the BF to tell him how badly we needed them.


I wanted to get all of them and have an entire family of manatees on the wall of our living room.  I mean, who doesn’t need a whole wall full of manatees?  No one, that’s who.  No one doesn’t need a whole wall of manatees.  (It’s a double negative, it totally works.)

Oh, and BF got me these super cute puzzle erasers the other day, paired with the dino erasers from before, I now have like a whole eraser entourage on my desk at work.  It’s medium ridiculous.

Also, after weeks of tireless searching (ok, maybe more like a few days of taking a slightly-out-of-my-way trip down the chip aisle) I finally found one of the new Lay’s flavors to try.

I was bummed that this was all I found, but then I stumbled upon a whole container full of mini bags of all the flavors at Walgreens (of all places), so I promptly bought a bag of each… you know, for science.  After minutes of serious empirical testing, I am happy to announce that I have figured out what the best flavor is!  Have any of you tried these yet?  What do you think?  What’s your favorite flavor?

Now, since I know that this is what you guys are really here for….

Pardon my dust… & A GIVEAWAY

In the mean time, enter this giveaway!

So to celebrate lasting two years, and as a huge thank you to all of my readers old and new, I have decided to have my first ever giveaway.  The winner will receive their very own copy of  The Art & Soul of Baking.

This is a great book for new and experienced bakers, it offers a ton of tips and tricks, as well as a great array of basic baking recipes with a variety of adaptations for each.  You may remember my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, which was inspired by this amazing book.

It also gives great step-by-steps for a lot of its recipes.  If you’re trying to learn or master new techniques, this book will give you the guidance and confidence needed to do so.

They aren’t paying me to promote their book, and I didn’t get this book for free, I really just love this book and its recipes.  Like the recipe for these scrumptious home made ding dongs that I made to celebrate my blogs 2nd anniversary.  Consequently, given that Hostess has recently found itself um… nonexistent, this may very well be the only way to get your ding-dong fix!

I will be posting that recipe in just a few short days here, but for now, without further ado, THE GIVEAWAY!  Use the form below to enter, you can gain extra entries by doing different things like commenting, liking the Wee Eats Facebook page, or following @wee_eats on Instagram.  The winner will be chosen at random from all of the entries in time for next week’s Thursday Things.

Best of luck to all of you!

Note: The giveaway is open to United States residents only.


Hopefully, in the mean time, I can wee-eats back to it’s normal functioning self <3
