We're all enjoying an extra day off this week, the kids are off from school and I don't usually have daycare on Fridays anyways. We tried sleeping in but my body just won't let me sleep past 6:30 anymore. Does anybody else have that problem? We're thinking of taking the girls to a movie today and having a pretty relaxing day at home.
Easter's on Sunday and the girls are getting excited. The Easter bunny will be coming to visit them, they'll have an egg hunt and probably get way more candy than they'll ever need! But I love spending time with all of our family, this weekend we'll only have my side to attend and then next weekend the hubby's. And food, that's another bonus about holidays. Lots of good food! I'm still indecisive about dessert, I'm having trouble finding the perfect one to make.....any suggestions?
This grape salad might even be a good option. I'd love to believe this is actually healthy for me, after all it's main ingredient is grapes and it has the word salad in it's name. But we know it's not. I guess you could consider this a dessert even. Whichever you decide, it's some serious good stuff! I brought this along to dinner last weekend at my parents and we couldn't get enough of it, good thing I didn't make a full batch.
1 lb. seedless green grapes
1 lb. seedless purple grapes
4 oz cream cheese, room temp
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4-1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c chopped pecans
Wash grapes and dry thoroughly. Put grapes in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. (I found using a hand mixer worked well for this) Add in sour cream, granulated sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Pour mixture over grapes and toss together until all grapes are coated well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Just before serving, sprinkle brown sugar and pecans on top.
