Week 2: 52 weeks of Pinterest

Its a keeper!  Wow, the summer salad from last week was awesome!  See post here:

My local store didn't have any black beans, so I used Black Eyed Peas instead and it was still wonderful.  (Sorry didn't get a photo, but it looked just like their photo just different beans!)

It did last several days and I ate it with Alfredo Tortillini, scrambled eggs, with chips, and with chicken.

The Mechanic has been working some late nights with the cooler weather, so he missed out on the awesome salad, which just left more for me!  It was kinda strange to eat just strait, but was good.

It will be a great summer salad to take for a get together or BBQ.  I would just make sure and take some chips to use it more as a "dip" (make sure to get pita chips or a thicker corn chip!).

Next going to try the Butterfingers recipe from Pinterest.

My friend, Honey tried it and said it was wonderful, and with only 3 ingreedents you can't go wrong!!

Candy Corn Butterfingers
Taste of Home forums
(Printable Recipe)

1 lb. candy corn
16oz jar peanut butter (I used Peter Pan Honey Roasted peanut butter)
16oz pkg. chocolate candy coating

Melt candy corn in microwave on high 1 minute. Stir and continue cooking in 15-second intervals til melted, stirring after each interval. Stir in peanut butter. Spread mixture in an 8x8 pan lined with parchment. Cool completely. Cut into squares. Dip in melted chocolate candy coating. Lay on waxed paper to set.

Hope our little local store has all I need for these, or I may have to wait till candy corn comes out for Halloween!

Wishing you a wonderful week!!
