…month 11, cycle 10?
I’m thinking there might be something to the theory that your cycles can be different lengths depending on the ovary you ovulate from. Because every-other cycle seems to be wonky and long, and then there are all the in-between ones that are 32 days on the dot, with a 13 day luteal phase. Just long enough to start getting my hopes up, but not long enough that I pee on too many sticks.
I tested this morning, and it was negative. Two hours later, my period started. But surprisingly, I haven’t wallowed or cried or felt disappointed. Maybe because I didn’t have my hopes up for this cycle? Maybe because I know that it’s all in God’s timing, and He’s never steered me wrong yet. I’m not sure. But I kind of like the fact that I don’t go all beserk when things don’t turn out as I planned.
I spent the day yesterday baking, and while I won’t post all the recipes at once (because then I would be out of blog posts), I will share J’s favourite. Super yummy, and taste just like Reese’s cups. AND they’re NO BAKE. Got that? NO OVEN TIME NEEDED. That equals awesome.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars
1 2/3 c peanut butter
3 c icing sugar
1 c graham wafer crumbs
3/4 c melted butter
1-1.5 c chocolate chips
1/4 c butter
Melt 3/4 cup butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add to the bowl of a mixer, and mix with peanut butter. Add in graham crumbs, mix to combine. Slowly add in the icing sugar, incorporating it all and making sure there are no lumps. Press this mixture into the bottom of a greased and lined 9×13 pan.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the remaining 1/4 cup butter with the chocolate chips. 1 1/2 cups seemed to be good for my batch. Pour over peanut butter mixture. Refrigerate until set.
These are EVEN BETTER when they are frozen, I promise.
