I was jolted awake at 6 this morning to the sound of Abby tossing her cookies. Always a pleasant way to greet the day. But it's alright because some serious strings were pulled for me at BYU and they re-admitted me and I get to graduate in April! I wanted to kiss my counselor. Well, that would be awkward because he is an old man, so we'll just stick with an enthusiastic high five. Hey, did anybody else watch Ke$ha on Times Square on New Year's Eve? Holy moly she looks like a man! Her eyebrows were out of control. They looked like big hairy caterpillars on her face. She is disgusting. But her songs are so darn catchy. And I don't care what anyone else says, I love the Backstreet Boys and I always will. Nick is still such a hunk. I can't really think of a smooth way to transition into the smattering of pictures I want to share, so let's just get right to it.
To reward you for this super boring blog post, here an amazing and low calorie (ha) fruit dip. It is so good. I got this awesome recipe from my Aunt Christina. I made some yesterday and I may or may not have eaten some this morning for breakfast? It's hard to say. I think it's best with green apples. I didn't take a picture because it's not really a looker, but trust me, it's delicious. Try it. Right now.
1 pkg cream cheese (you can use low-fat if you are feeling particularly fond of your arteries)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 c powdered sugar (I was feeling very jiggly and full of self-loathing when I made this and I used only 1/2 c brown sugar and 1/4 c powdered sugar which soothed my conscience a little bit and didn't make a difference in the flavor)
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag of toffee chunks (I used Heath)
Mix it all up and dip apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, a spoon.... your finger....
