Isaiah 32:18  My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undistributed places of rest.

This is what I made for my hubby this Valentine’s day.   Peanut butter is one of his favorites.  There are plenty of peanut butter pie recipes with the cream cheese and cool whip, but I wanted a pie that had a pudding filling.  This one is easy to cook and is really good.  Feel free to add more peanut butter if desired.

One 10 inch pie shell or two graham cracker crust pie shells (regular or chocolate)

3/4 cups sugar

1/3 cup corn starch

pinch of salt

4 cups milk

4 egg yolks

3/4 cups peanut butter

3 T. butter at room temperature

1 t. vanilla

Blind bake the pie shell if using a pastry style crust.  If you are using the graham cracker style crust there is no need to bake it first.

Combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Mix together well with a whisk.  Combine the milk and the egg yolks and whisk together until bell blended.  Add the liquid mixture to the sugar mixture in a saucepan.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly.  After mixture boils (this will be a low boil), let it boil for one minute.  Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter, butter and vanilla.  Allow to cool slightly and then pour into pie shell(s).  Refrigerate for about an hour to allow the pudding to completely set.

Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce or all of these.

Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.

3 16 oz. cans or 3 pints of diced tomatoes

3-4 baby carrots

Place 1 can/pint of tomatoes and the vegetables in a powerful blender, NutriBullet or Ninja.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into medium size sauce pan.

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1/2-3/4 cups sour dough bread broke into pieces (can use regular bread)

Place 1 can/pint of tomatoes with the bread and cheese in a powerful blend, NutriBullet or Ninja.   Blend until smooth.   Pour into medium size sauce pan.

Combine the two blended cans/pints of tomatoes with the additional can/pint of diced tomatoes.  Heat, but do not boil.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  You can add 1-2 teaspoons of dried parsley or some fresh parsley.
