Peanut Brittle Bark

It’s never more abundantly clear that men and women’s baby experiences are completely different than when my husband starts trying to plan outings as a family.
Like where you go places.
With an infant.
With Jon David, I was new, young and optimistic. I tried to take him shopping, or out to dinner, and all kinds of stuff that cool, fun, nonchalant baby mama’s do. But then one day I realized that being stuck somewhere waiting for everyone to finish their meals while wearing a shirt soaked in spit up isn’t a fun way to spend an evening.
I’ll take my recliner and carry out, thanks.
Anyways. I guess cabin fever has set in, and my husband is all, “we should try to go somewhere for a weekend” and all that sounds like to me is a big ol’ pile of stress. What about nap time? What do we do when we all share a hotel room and she’s ready for lights out at 8?
AND OMG PACKING ALLLLLLLLLLLLL THE THINGS.
I know that my husband’s vision is us holding hands while Jon David runs ahead of us exploring and Lucy coos adorably in her stroller, but I don’t know where he got that idea. Maybe he watches too many movies, because that is definitely not our life right now.
Maybe I do too good of a job hiding the crazy?
I’m thinking that instead of using Lucy’s daytime naps to apply make up, throw in a load of laundry and get something going in the crock pot, I’ll just make a date with Dr. Phil and some Cool Ranch Doritos and see how things play out after a week or so.
Kinda sounds like a manly thing to do if you ask me.
A few weeks ago, I saw this stuff called Brittle Bark. It’s peanut brittle poured over a layer of popcorn and pretzels, topped with a drizzle of chocolate.
Hello, most perfect thing ever.
I almost bought some, but then I remembered that I make peanut brittle every year, and surely this couldn’t be much more difficult.
Also, peanut brittle in February? WINNING!!
Turns out, it wasn’t hard at all — and this stuff is so so addicting. Probably one of my favorite things I’ve made so far. Try it!
This stuff is so so crazy good!!
Enjoy and have a happy Monday!
