Every once in awhile I will have the house to myself while my boyfriend goes to a work dinner. It’s like I’ve never been left home alone before, I’m a child. I tend to get a bit mischevious on these nights. I can’t describe it, I have this sense of urge to create trouble. I find myself throwing on my pajamas the minute I walk in the door from work, no care to hang up my clothes. I curl up to the television for a marathon of brainless Bravo shows such as the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or The Kardashians Take Miami. And worst yet, I most times end up snacking on Twix bars and old apples for dinner. For my entire dinner. Help me I’m sick…Tonight is one of those nights. I write this as I’m watching American Idol. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills re-runs are already over. Twix bars in hand. Apartment a mess. I’m secretly so happy. I think it’s nice, every once in awhile, to take a break from the structure of my day to day.
Anyways, in addition to my Twix bar, I thought it would be a good idea to have something a bit more colorful. I saw a recipe from the brilliant Weelicious that inspired me to make this Graham Cracker n’ Strawberry snack. Enjoy!
12 ounces of 2% greek yogurt, cold
2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar, packed
5 strawberries, fresh
8 graham crackers
With an immersion blender, mix together the greek yogurt, dark brown sugar and 2 strawberries. Blend until very smooth. Smooth greek yogurt mix on graham crackers. Cut strawberries in half and place on the graham crackers with greek yogurt mix.
