The good news is, we have two reasons to celebrate this week. The bad news is, they involve causing trouble to our diets.
Reason #1 to celebrate: Alex lost his job. He has hated this job these many years, and we are so relieved because now he is going to get an awesome better paying job that he doesn't loathe.
Still, since it is my job as wife and mother to two to worry when such events take place, I made these corn flake treats to comfort myself the night after the big news. (Pamy, you'll probably want to avert your eyes from both of these recipes.)
1/2 stick butter
1/2 bag marshmallows
whopping dollop of Peanut butter
Melt butter on low to medium heat. Add marshmallows and melt as well. Add peanut butter and stir around. Pour in corn flakes. Grease small pan or large plate and pour yummy sticky mess on the thing. Eat with a glass of milk until you feel better that your husband is currently unemployed. (Is this blog appropriate to the economic situation, or what!?)
Reason #2: My awesome husband is one year closer to thirty this year. Since he was born in one of the hottest months of the year, his instincts have told him that yogurt pie is the best birthday treat for him.
1 container frozen whipped topping
2 6oz. containers yogurt
1 graham cracker crust
Stir first two ingredients together. Place in crust. Freeze. Enjoy.
