But one evening a few weeks ago, while lounging on the good old couch and watching Netfix movies, I had a strong craving for something rich in sugar and fat. Something akin to cheese cake or up-market chocolates. My pantry held nothing of the sort. But thanks to my dear little honey bees, I always have a shelf of honey filled jars. And I always have peanut butter which, combined with lard, forms the basis of suet cakes I make for my backyard birds. I also just happened to have had some cream cheese in the refrigerator. The following is now my 'go to' source for a sweet indulgence.
In a small bowl, mix together one tablespoon of peanut butter, one tablespoon of cream cheese and one teaspoon of honey.
Have at it and let me know what you think. Oh, and it wouldn't hurt to sprinkle on a few chocolate chips.
