Peanut Butter Bars

You probably could have guessed this but I am the cook of our household. Tom knows how to make exactly three things:

1. Standard ground beef tacos

2. Anything on the grill

3. Peanut butter bars

So proud of him. But seriously, not to diminish his grill skills because THEY ARE AMAZING, but the other two recipes that he knows are pretty simple. Simple but GOOD. Everyone knows how to make standard ground beef tacos so I won't elaborate on that but his PEANUT BUTTER BARS are out of this world delicious.
