Yesterday was a pretty rough day for me. Like cry-in-your-car-during-lunch kind of day. Please tell me someone else has done this?
Sometimes I feel that I’ve hit a wall. Like what am I doing with my life? I’m 26 and feel like I haven’t accomplished anything and I’m a total failure. My life is going nowhere. It’s all over.
Ok, ok, that’s a bit dramatic. But sometimes that’s how I feel. Seriously. So, my logical-self tells my hopeless-self that nobody ever accomplished anything by feeling sorry for themselves so get off your butt and do something already. And in my defense, I have been trying to change my path in life, but have hit a lot of roadblocks. A lot of closed doors, a lot of negativity.
And what is the answer? Pie. Pie is always the answer. Ok, maybe not. But this pie did make me feel tremendously better, at least temporarily. Besides it’s melting hot in Austin lately, so baked pie wasn’t going to happen. But frozen chocolate pie with Oreos? Heck yea! That definitely happened!
1/2 stick of butter
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup cool whip
1 1/2 cups milk
Meanwhile, let’s get started on the pie filling! In another large mixing bowl, combine the instant chocolate pudding mix with 1 1/2 cups milk. We reduce the amount of milk from the regular recipe so that the pie will be thicker.
Now add the cool whip. You can mix this by hand or use an electric mixer. I used my stand mixer. I beat with the whisk on medium high speed for 2 minutes. I wanted the mixture to be a little fluffier.
