We celebrated Mandy's birthday over the weekend and it was so much fun!
Big Steve and I don't really do much together, but we did discover that staying up until 5am is for the birds; he spent the entire day Sunday sleeping and I spent it counting down until Stevie's bedtime.
The weekend was so worth it, though!
Good friends and good food - what more could you ask for?!
|[me and the birthday girl! at some point, i decided a fire hat was necessary and made this face...also necessary.]|
|[JULIA GULIA! on a side note, she's finally going to be living with her horse and i am so happy for her!]|
|[the birthday lady and her maaaaaaaaan.]|
|[BOBBY! somehow we also decided to talk about ghosts which gave me incredible nightmares last night, btw.]|
|[i promise he loves me!]|
Remember when I gave you the recipe for the easiest truffles ever?
Well, Mandy can't eat Oreos or chocolate (which makes me really depressed), so I tried Vanilla Truffles for the first time - just as easy and just as delicious!
Vanilla Truffles (aka The Mandy Truffle)
1 package WhoNu Vanilla Cookies (or generic brand)
1 8oz package of Cream Cheese - softened
White Chocolate for Piping
Crush up your cookies (I use a food processor, but you can just as easily crush them using your hands) - add you Cream Cheese and mix it all together. I use my hands because I'm not scurred.
Melt your white chocolate. Cut a small slit in the corner of a plastic baggie and decorate your balls (a joke can be made here somewhere). Then add sprinkles of your choice and serve!
These are always a hit, so make them ASAP.
