Maybe Not As Forgiving As We Need It To Be

Posted: May 21, 2015 in Uncategorized

Today, we saw a great recipe.done

It involved using graham crackers, Greek yogurt, whipped cream, fresh strawberries and bananas.

We checked our pantry. Odd, we don’t normally purchase graham crackers, but there you go. We had a box! We checked our fridge. There sat our older sister’s container of Greek yogurt. She will be at work until late tonight!

We knew we had some strawberry jam, frozen blueberries from last year, and frozen bananas (our older sister uses them to make her smoothies). But again, she would be at work until late πŸ™‚

We set upon making the recipe. We lined a baking pan with graham crackers and proceeded to make the filling.

In went the Greek yogurt. In went the Cool Whip. Okay, not good like real whipped cream, but it’s what we had in the freezer. The recipe called for 1 cup of whipped cream, but oh well, we like it so we put in the entire container. The author of the recipe said it was a very forgiving recipe.

Then we added some strawberry jam, but noticed our jar of Smuckers had no real strawberries in it, just mush. So we looked some more and only found our other older sister’s old jar of Raspberry Curd. It tasted fine and we thought, “What the heck. We like raspberries.” In it went.

Then a big handful of blueberries and some chopped up frozen banana.

We tasted it. Pretty darn good. Tart from the yogurt, but sweet from the Cool Whip.

It made a ton, way more than we needed, but what the heck, we stuck it all on the crackers, smoothed it around, put crackers on the top and put it in the freezer for everyone’s delight tonight.

It was then that we decided to eat a couple of leftover graham crackers. Hmmm. They tasted really weird.

We looked at the “Best When Used By” date. Oh brother. We knew we never bought graham crackers. The date was February 22, 2011.

Maybe we’ll eat the insides alone because probably even though the recipe is forgiving, it’s probably not as forgiving as we need it to be πŸ™‚
