The Day Everything Started To Fade Away
This 2 Ingredient Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge came about because I wanted to make something sweet for the holidays, and I wanted to create a really easy recipe.
Six week ago I went for my daily walk at the park near my house. I slipped and fell on a hill that was all gravel and dirt. My right leg went under me and my knee skidded on the dirt. At the same time my ankle twisted out to the right. I felt a strange shift in my ankle.
I looked down at my leg and saw the ankle bone was sticking out about twice the size as it normally is. Even though I was in a lot of pain, I thought it was probably just a sprain.
Wiping away tears, I proceeded to hobble home. I walked over 100 yards. Then, feeling nauseous, I sat down next to a tree.
That’s when everything started to go white and fade away. Being in shock, I literally thought I was dying. No joke. (I was actually starting to faint.) I willed myself to come to, and said to myself, “I want to live!”
I know it sounds dramatic, but being in the state that I was in, that’s what was going through my mind. I was able to pull myself up off the ground and hobble to the dog park a few yards away and borrow a kind samaritan’s phone. My husband came to pick me up and rushed me to the ER.
That’s when I found out I fractured my fibula. I have never broken any bones until now, so I was a bit freaked out. Luckily, I didn’t have to have surgery. I have been in a wheelchair ever since.
Writing this is hard because I am living it all over again in my head, but I find writing to be cathartic. Hopefully by getting it out, I won’t relive it anymore.
There are days the pain is unbearable, even with the extra strength acetaminophen I am taking.
A Need To Create No Matter What
Everything takes me about four times longer than normal. Creating recipes is a major endeavor, and taking photos is just as time consuming and difficult. I normally shoot outside since I live in sunny Tucson, but since my house isn’t setup for a wheelchair, shooting outside isn’t an option. So I shoot on my kitchen table and drag my cumbersome backdrop to the table.
Luckily I had three months worth of posts waiting to be published before I broke my ankle. Unfortunately, I didn’t have as many holiday recipes as I wanted. I think I am going to have to start creating recipes in June to get ready for the holidays from now on.
Even though I am stocked up on posts, I have a need to create recipes. It is the one thing I love to do more than anything, so even if it takes me four times longer than normal, I am determined to do it!
It’s good to focus on something you love when things aren’t going the way you want. It’s also nice to have a sweet comforting treat to make you forget about your troubles.
Having this happen to me makes me even more grateful for the little things. When this is all over, lookout! I am going to feel like The Flash since I’ll be able things done so much faster.
Sweet and Rich
Normally I gravitate towards chocolate or a combination of chocolate and peanut butter when I am craving something sweet. I was out of cacao powder and chocolate chips when I decided to make this, so I figured why not make peanut butter fudge.
This 2 Ingredient Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge is so much better than I imagined. It is sweet and rich – everything you expect fudge to be.
If you like sweet desserts, than you have come to the right place! These irresistible delights will satisfy your sweet tooth in one bite.
If you have ever had sweetened condensed coconut milk, than you’ll know what I am talking about. When coconut milk is sweetened and condensed it becomes thick and rich. Add it to peanut butter and you have a caramel flavored decadent treat.
Making peanut butter fudge couldn’t be any easier. If you’ve never made fudge before, you’ll be happy to know how simple it can be.
So How Do You Make Peanut Butter Fudge?
- Heat sweetened condensed coconut milk and peanut butter on stovetop.
- Pour mixture into a plastic wrap lined dish.
- Put in the freezer to set.
