We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Food on Friday

Remember earlier in the week when I promised something wonderful for Food on Friday?  It might have been a lie.  My week kind of got away from me and what I originally planned to post took too long.  (See yesterday's post for a brief explanation.)

I am going to share something that is a dreamy little dish.  Fruit dip.  It's easy and once again, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.

Fruit Dip
8 oz.  of softened cream cheese
1 jar of marshmallow fluff
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 tbsp of vanilla

Dump it all in.

Mix it well.  Mixmixmix.  Walk away and let it mix.  The softer my cream cheese is, the better luck I have with a smooth, creamy dip.  My people will eat it chunky, but since I was taking this in public, smooth and creamy was my goal. 

It's a dreamy little dish.  Did I mention that?  We used it with berries (Granny's), since it's berry season.

Apples, bananas, pineapple, oranges, graham crackers, popcorn or a spoon works nicely, also.  Just sayin'.

Also very good if you use this calorie reduction tip: Use index finger and middle finger to scoop a generous portion directly into your mouth. Repeat as necessary.

We do not have marshmallow fluff in our cabinet. I can't say that I've ever even tasted marshmallow fluff (you know my mother deprived me). But this dip is delicious.

OH I am going to have to try the vanilla and powdered sugar. I just use the fluff and cc. Mmmmm mmmm good :)
