Homemade Peanut Butter Cups

April 19, 2014

I found this on facebook. Oh my goodness they look good, and I’ve been on a kick to make it myself instead of buying it (if at all possible).

So, here is my attempt. It did come out much better than some of those Pinterest recreation horrors I’ve seen, but with only two ingredients, what could go wrong?

1. Melted the chocolate and put a thin layer in the cupcake liners. I used dark (60%) chocolate which is my favorite.










2. Got the peanut butter flattened after leaving it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. I used a natural peanut butter from Trader Joes.










3. Put a round of peanut butter in each cup.










4. Covered the top with a bit more chocolate.










5. Finished pruduct!











And they are yummy, yummy!

Update to Modesto Librarian

March 13, 2014

Well, the Modesto school board has voted to end its elementary library program in favor of computer time. (article) I’m wondering if any of the school board members have visited any elementary library classroom to know what really happens in that time period or to find out that the school librarian is perfectly capable of doing the computer work they think the students need.

Modesto California and School Librarians

March 11, 2014

Moving from Middle School to Elementary School has brought some challenges as I scrambled for Kindergarten appropriate lessons after teaching older students. One of the places I found with really good ideas was the Modesto K-6 library lessons. They (along with some other sites) gave me lots of good ideas.

So, it was with sadness that I read this article from the Modesto Bee describing the school boards intent (if approved) to do away with time in the library in favor of computer instruction. A lot of the time I spend in the library is spent on computers – we find information, analyze it, share it on computers.  I’m an information specialist and I teach them how to be responsible with information. So I’m not quite sure how this is not as relevant to the 21st century as having the students go to computer. Oh and we do also talk about books – still a great source of information.

We are hosting a Flat Stanley

March 7, 2014

Or in our case, a Flat Ava. Next week she will spend some time with the students at school. But due to inclement weather, she’s been taking it easy at the Griffin’s house.

Here she is warming her toes by the fire. She only brought one outfit, so I know she’s been cold.


She watched some ESPN last night with Ron.



Today she helped him work on some real estate contracts!
