So lately I haven’t been showing enough love to my two favorite food groups: peanut butter and ice cream

What, those aren’t food groups? Could have fooled me!

Does peanut butter combined with chocolate make up a food group?peanut butter cups

Oh well, because you know what, when it comes to dessert you just have to enjoy what you love.  Personally, I’m good at that…
