Happy President’s Day!  Someday, somebody somewhere is going to alter the elevate “President’s Day” to “National – become purchase a mattress Monday.”  Or at to the lowest degree that’s what ane would intend alongside all the commercials as well as discounts.


In abide by of President’s Day we’ll accept a niggling history “did you lot know” lesson:

Did you lot know in that place were 8 USA Presidents born inward Virginia?  The large No. 1 George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, as well as Woodrow Wilson.  Also vi Presidents’ wives were born inward Virginia.  Mrs. Martha Washington, Martha Jefferson, Rachel Jackson, Letitia Tyler, Ellen Arthur, Edith Wilson. And final but non least, seven Presidents are buried inward Virginia: Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Tyler, Taft as well as Kennedy.   Kennedy is buried at Arlington which nearly people intend is inward Washington, D.C. but it is merely across the Potomac inward Virginia.


Now that the twenty-four hours has non been totally wasted, let’s brand a rich, decadent, creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie!

Recommendations: After testing this recipe a distich of times, I believe (and gustatory modality testers agree) the chocolate layer is also thick. Next fourth dimension I'll exam using chocolate curls or a drizzle of chocolate as well as update the postal service again! It's notwithstanding a deliciously rich pie - merely a hurting to cutting alongside the slab of chocolate on top.






Have a dandy calendar week as well as cheers as well as hence much for stopping by!
