Hello everyone! Summer is here. I love warm weather, even as a plus size gal, I love it. Just don’t ask me to go swimming. I don’t like water. I’ve told y’all before. I can barely take a bath. Just kidding, but I don’t like water. I can look at a picture of the ocean or large body of water and I start getting anxious. I wasn’t like this when I was younger. I’ve been to the ocean and been on a few boats, but as I’ve aged, I just have a fear of the water.

Now y’all may not know but I like to talk to people. Even people I don’t know. Jacob gets onto me for it all the time. He says, “mom people don’t want to talk to you.” I think they do want to talk to me. I can just strike up a conversation with just about anybody. I can talk to our waitresses and find out what they are going to college to be. I really like to talk to the people. I have to call for different situations at the bank. Like ordering checks, I always ask them what state they are in. I met a real nice younger guy from Pheonix, AZ and I asked him if he had been to the Grand Canyon. He told me he hadn’t, and I told him he needed to load up his family and go. It would be a great vacation for them.

Anyway, back to being plus size. I buy good snacks when I go shopping. Debs, pop, chips, etc. I was at CVs one day and I had a bag of chips, bag of frozen French fries and some pizza rolls. Some man that I didn’t even know says to me, “that’s too many carbs.” Do you think that set well with me? No, it did not. I wanted to say mind your own business, Mr. Fitness. I do talk to strangers, but I don’t tell them what to buy and what to eat and I don’t judge people by what they have in their cart. I know I buy a lot of junk food. He made me so mad. Glad I got that off my chest.

This week’s recipe is for an easy peanut butter cake. My friend Lisa Favela asked me to make for her son Travan and she said it was delicious. I tasted they icing and it was so good.

1 Devi’s food cake mix
1 can creamy vanilla frosting
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 Reece’s pieces candy
1 cup Reece’s minis unwrapped and cut in half
Bake according to the box directions. When cool, mix the icing and the peanut butter. I put the icing in the microwave for a few seconds so it would be a little warm and added the peanut butter and mixed well. It’s very creamy. Spread on top of the cooled cake. Top with Reese’s Pieces and Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. I admit I did not measure, I just put how much I wanted on top. Enjoy it this easy cake.
