Peanut Butter Sundae Sauce

May 22, 2014

I'm a little more than behind this week due to an unwanted blogging break. Needless to say within hours of Jeremy graduating I started showing symptoms of the flu.

Sunday morning my mother forced me to go to Urgent Care after my fever kept on inching up. Monday it nearly hit 102, which had me in a utter panic that it would go to 103 and I'd have to go to the hospital. Too many people have died from flu complications this year to play with it, and luckily after covering myself in frozen wash clothes it finally went back down.

It's kind of discouraging to take medicine and watch your fever just keep going up, and good gracious the pain that does with a fever. I'm a huge baby though, Jeremy on the other hand is so use to not feeling well due to his ear problems that he never seems phased.

After being babied half to death by Jeremy and Mom I'm finally on the mend and got around to photographing Nanny's recipe I made Friday.

There are many foods I associate with Nanny, but this one is all Pop. 

Growing up Pop would always have ice cream on hand for when Laura and I came over, which was several times a week. If I was lucky enough to get sick and checkout, Nanny always brought me home and babied me. After Pop retired it meant that much more time with him. 

When we weren't sick though, it was always ice cream after dinner. Most Friday nights were spent with Nanny & Pop eating pizza and then finishing off the night with ice cream... which we would then let my grandparents cocker-poo Beaux lick the bowls. 

One thing Pop always liked putting on his ice cream was peanut butter. He'd just warm some up and drizzle it over this big ole bowl. 

While I love it Pop's way, this recipe of Nanny's takes Pop's way to a whole new level. 

Plus it's pretty darn divine on ice cream, scones, toast, or anything that'll hold still.
