This will be short! Another Pinterest recipe that I tried out yesterday was a simple recipe for peanut butter banana ice cream, and when I say simple, I mean simple. There are two ingredients: Peanut butter and bananas. Seriously. The trick is that the bananas have to be frozen. I just threw a bunch of bananas in the freezer for this, but it's better if you slice some, put it into a ziplock bag, and THEN freeze it for 2-3 hours. After they're frozen, pulse the bananas in a blender until they form a soft-serve type consistency. Add in a dollop (very exact measurement) or two of peanut butter and finish mixing! It's not quite ice cream consistency, but it's refreshing and yummy! If you want a more ice cream feel, freeze the mixture after you've mixed it and eat it then!

Before my crazy finals week, I decided to have fun with some recipes that I found on Pinterest. Part of why I wanted to blog post this is because the link on the pin didn't lead anywhere useful. I've never done a recipe post, but I think this will be fun! This recipe has only a few ingredients, and you'll probably already have most of them at home anyways! The recipe calls for:
ziti noodles (the recipe didn't specify, but I found that 1 box of Barilla pasta works well!)
1 lb of ground beef
1 package taco seasoning (I had a container of seasoning, so I just seasoned to taste)
1 cup water (this is for the meat. I didn't use it, but I'll discus that later!)
1/2 package of cream cheese (I used 4 oz.)
1 1/2 shredded cheese (I used a lot more!)
So, the first thing that I did was get my ingredients together!
