First off, I ‘THANK YOU’ all a million times over for all of your ideas and showing some California love, our ♥honeymoon re-do♥ is bound to be great with all of your help! Keep ‘em coming if you think of anything! You are all soooooo AWESOME! Thank you!
So, some of you know I’m a teacher. Yes, this wild and crazy girl is in charge of 15-25 children EVERY day during the months of August-May. I make them just as wild and crazy, incase you were wondering…..
Well, teachers around here have this thing called ‘FAT FRIDAY’! …..Does this sound like something you would like to take part in?... I for one cringe when I think of things like this. Everyone is responsible for bringing a dish and we all share. (Sharing is caring) Fat Friday happens about once a month or so, when something special comes up. We share our food and talk. That is what happens….
If you are a cool kid, you bring food to ‘Fat Friday’ and chit-chat. I want to be a cool kid… really, I do! I usually eat my spinach salad and apple in my classroom. I want to be friendly, but I just don’t eat the kinds of things that they eat. NOT that I’m judging them! I just don’t want them to judge me because I don’t eat their food and I bring my own food. ….I want to bring food and share in the experience, really, I do!
Thanks to Katie over at chocolatecoveredkatie.com I have an answer! ….Her snickerdoodle dip is HEAVENLY!!! Thank you Katie! (who is now in NYC, so jealous!)
- 1 1/2 c -OR- 1 can of white beans
- 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Sweetener: she suggests 3/4 c. brown sugar -
- —I added 2 packets of stevia! I don’t want to feel guilty about eating the batch. If I’m sharing, I’ll add the brown sugar. If it’s at home, I’ll do stevia.
- 2 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I always go waaay overboard when it comes to cinnamon)
- large, large pinch of cream of tartar
Put them all in a food processor or blender and go to town! Soooo good!!!
So when I’m trying to be a COOL KID I’ll add a gram cracker to entice the stressed teachers, it brings us back to happy days……….. Days where children are studying and laughing at all of their teacher’s jokes! HA!
Personally, I’m a fan of this stuff on APPLES! ….Mom & sister said it was really good and tasted *JUST* like snickerdoodles! SCORE!
This is so healthy, I’ll have something to eat AND share of ‘Fat Friday’. This is Charlie & myself refer to as WINNING!!! (I scolded myself for the Charlie reference) ….In all seriousness, THIS is my solution to make ‘Fat Friday’ not so fat! :)
QUESTION: Are there any situations where you feel like I do on ‘Fat Friday’? What do you do? –OR– Recipe to share for potluck?
