Supper for "Ms. Trudy"

Tonight was night #2 of delivering supper to teachers. Tonight was Ms. Trudy's turn (Kinlee's 1st grade teacher). Ms. Trudy actually lives in Greenfield, about 15 miles from here. She offered to let us just bring the food to her at school today, but we told her that the travel there was "part of the adventure". (Besides that, it gave us a good excuse to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, Wimpy's, in Greenfield.) We arrived at Ms. Trudy's house and were warmly welcomed by her, and her neighbor's dog, who Ms. Trudy said is VERY protective. She was nice, but checked us out to make sure we were not there to cause any harm. (The dog, that is, not Ms. Trudy:)). Kinlee has really enjoyed Ms. Trudy's class this year, and we have enjoyed getting to know her, as well. Mark has said on several occasions, "She's got to be the 'smilinest' woman I've ever met!" Thanks for all of your hard work, Ms. Trudy - we appreciate it!!!
Ms. Trudy's dinner choices consisted of spaghetti, shredded parmesan, garlic bread, and peanut butter pie. Kinlee helped me make the sauce, as you can see in the pictures above. (My favorite has to be the picture of her on her tip-toes because she could barely reach the stove.) Parker was glad about the pie because it is his favorite, and the recipe makes 2! Guess who got the keep the second one.....The spaghetti sauce is a family recipe, so if I posted it, I'd have to kill ya. So, to keep the violence to a minimum, I'll just post the recipe for the pie:
Peanut Butter Pie
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. peanut butter
16 oz. cool whip
2 graham cracker crusts
Mix all ingredients until smooth. Divide into 2 crusts. Freeze at least 2 hours. Top with chocolate syrup, crushed oreos, chocolate chips, etc.., if desired!! ENJOY!!
