The Last Minute, Eleventh Hour Wife

At the strike of roughly 4:00 pm my wifely instincts kicked in.

I hadn't baked in near a week and to delight the palettes of husband (and kids), I should whip something up.

Totally doable if my pantry is well stocked. But it wasn't.

A quick click over to Pinterest led me to a couple recipes that inspired me to just make it up as I went along. 

I had a box cake mix, a few eggs and peanut butter.  What can't be done with those three, I ask you? 

I used the cake mix, the water called for in the package directions and only 2 eggs (it called for 3). I then added about 1 cup crunchy peanut butter.

Next, whip it. Whip it good.

Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan.

Then sprinkle about 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips all over the top.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until toothpick  comes out clean.

This is getting good, don't you think?

And looking good, right?

Lastly, enjoy the chocolate/peanut butter smell of your home as hubby enters the door and pretend you've been slaving over that stove all day long.

You did it! And now it's only 5:02 pm. You are Super Wife.

    You, my friend, are my hero.

  3. Thanks so much for that, "whip it, whip it good" line. ugh. That'll be goin' round my head for a while now!!

  4. Woo Hoo super wife/mom!! We must have been thinking the same thing at the same time, I whipped up Crazy cake...although, yours looks much better!!
