Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie Pie…yeah, say that 10 times fast. Ok, it might be kind of hard to do that with a mouth full of pie.
The past few weeks I have been learning the value to saying no. I usually just can’t say no when I am asked to do different projects. You need 10 matching headbands for a wedding party this coming weekend. Sure I will get right on that. 200 cupcakes for a party you are having…sure, why not. Ok, ok, those might be slightly embellished examples, but you get the point right? I don’t like to turn down requests for things I know I can do.
So far in the last 2 weeks, I have said no to 3 large graduation cake orders and a hand picked blog project. It was hard to say no because I know that I can do them. The thing of it is that I would be so stressed out trying to finish everything all while doing a wedding cake and packing for our family vacation. It really was in my best interest and my family’s best interest to not take on that many extra projects.
There were a couple that I thought long and hard about trying to fit in…I mean when someone hand picks you for a special blog job/project, you want to say yes immediately. After weighing everything, I knew that I just couldn’t put the time and effort into it. The email I got back from my campaign manager saying how impressed she was that I would say no to something like this, reaffirmed to me that saying no to someone or something is ok to do.
Just a little life lesson that I had this weekend that I thought I would share.
Something I couldn’t say no to this week…this pie!!!!
Oh, my goodness!
Talk about decadent and delicious! A thick fudge-y pie topped with peanut butter cheesecake that has Peanut Butter Snickers chunks in it and a layer of Cool Whip on top of it. Yeah…this had my name all over it. Well, one slice anyway. Remember the lesson in saying no…it kind of has to apply to desserts too. All winter and spring I have not said yes, and well, now I’m not going to be wearing some of my summer clothes from last year.
It’s time to start saying no to the goodness that keeps happening in my kitchen…well, after one slice that is All in the name of recipe research, right?
