i am a brunette.....and super fantab banana peanut butter pie!

hi blends.....(bloggers and friends!) happy almost hump day! ahhhh the week is almost 1/2 way done. rock on......gosh, i wish i loved my job so much that i lived for the week, and dreaded the weekends. um. never. going. to. happen. end. of. story.

so i am a brunette....sort of.....i feel like a brunette. i have decided to 86 the bleach blonde look for a more 'sophisticated' look....lol. i think i am tired of being the blonde 'bimbo'......(and its true....when you are a bleach blonde, people 'mistakenly' think you are DUMMMMMMMB. i once had a work friend tell me that when she first met me, she was like......wow! 'i cant believe it....not only are you super cute, and blonde...but you're really intelligent too'.....yep. she actually told me that.....hey, high fives for the super cute, but it just goes to show you that we are judged on looks alone. anyway, heres a pic.....i guess in hind sight, its much lighter then it looks. i freaked the night she did it. to the point that my hair girl told me to wash it twice in DAWN dish detergent......oh, yeah. DAWN. then sleep in a thick conditioner......what eva. yeah, i did it.

ok....i look like i am writhing in pain.....not the most attractive pic....but you get the drift, right......now if i could only get used to it!!!

alrighty, now for the goods. i made this super dee duper rich, fattening, amazing peanut butter banana pie.....two words. BIG HIPS! i promise this will probably add like 5 lbs after consuming.....but seriously its delish. the hubs was being a baby and was like, 'i hate banana cream pie'....i said, puhleeze. just do me a favor and try it....one bite. thats it. one teeny weeny bite. um, yes. HOOKED him in like a fish! (did i just say that??) anyway, he said, 'man....that's some pretty F'ing good Shit.'....nice.

so here you are......i am going to take the rest to the peeps at work. this can not be left in the fridge. hello diet tomorrow.

banana peanut butter pie

one refridgerated pie crust
6 tbsp butter softened (i totally forgot this!)
1/3 cup peanut butter ( i used reduced fat!)
2 cups powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp sugar
1-2 bananas sliced
crushed peanuts for topping

preheat oven to 450'.  unroll pie crust out into pie plate. prick bottom with fork a few times. bake for 10 minutes. let cool completely. (i put mine in the freezer to speed up the process.....(i have NO patience).
mix butter, peanut butter and vanilla until well blended. add in powder sugar a cup at a time. when pie shell has finished cooling, spread peanut butter mixture into crust. and top with the nanas.  it will look like this:

and  as you can see i will never win ANY awards for my pie crust capabilities.....

in mixing bowl,  pour in whipping cream, vanilla and sugar. mix until peaks form....it will look like this.....sort of.....

top pie with this mixture of yumminess....and then sprinkle with these:

this is a combination of different nuts. i was lazy.

and last but not least the end result.....oh, and sorry for the piece missing.....that was the BITE i gave to that boy!!!

this seriously is so good. its like sort of banana pie with the filling of a reeses cup.....divine.


nighty night and sleep with angels!!

I LOVE the hair---it looks great! It's nice to mix it up but I'm still on the fence whether blonde or brunettes have more fun so thats why I have both in my hair :)

Umm that pie should be illegal. I can only guess how good it tastes!

When I was practically platinum, people would meet me then later say, "wow... I thought you'd be in a sorority or something." That kind of bugged me... Not that there's anything wrong with sorority girls, but how they just assumed... I mean really- what is that!?!?!

I like your new color!

I am going to have to try this recipe. Yum O. I love cooking too. And I know what you mean about what people think of blondes. I am natural blonde person and have been since I was a kid, but hopefully now that I entered my 30's people will take me more seriously. haha. And the blonde just won't change but I wouldn't have it any other way.
