My basic attitude about everything in life has been...
|"Ain't nobody got time for that. I'm too freaking cold!"|
But this week, things are looking up. We even had a few days reach 80 degrees! I was ecstatic!
So I pulled out my Weight Watchers Magazine from Summer 1970 and found the perfect Warm Weather Delight!
This recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients: Knox Unflavored Gelatin and Nonfat Dry Milk. It also involves one of my favorite hobbies in the world: PUTTING THINGS IN MY BLENDER. Yahooo!
After ten minutes of spinning all of the ingredients with the Knox gelatin, a burning smell started coming from my blender, so I had to stop. But I was pleased to find that my Warm Weather Delight had really come together nicely. It was thick and smooth and creamy.
|It kept GROWING and getting thicker by the minute.|
I have to admit -- It did taste pretty good, though. Full disclosure: Since I didn't have any black walnut extract on hand, I used almond extract instead. Which was good, because I love me some almond flavoring.
I am hoping the warm weather is here to stay. Although as I type this post, I am wrapped in my fleece blanket and wearing my fuzzy slippers. I hear the high temperature today in Pittsburgh is going to be 50 degrees.
Uh oh. Better stay off Twitter.
