It’s Friday!! Fii-hiiii-hiiii-nally. (Ha actually what am I talking about- it was only a 4-day week. I’m not even that tired. )
So, what are you getting into this weekend?
My mama is flying in for my birthday and we’re going to dinner with my great aunt and Eric and my best bud, Christine (who, by the way, after putting up with me nagging her for MONTHS about starting her own blog, finally did it yesterday!! Stop by and say hello! http://saltysecrets.com/ She is the best cook ever, hosts the best parties, travels to the coolest places, and she is a riot- essentially perfect blog fodder)
Now, on to today’s topic: FOOD!
So, I love minimal ingredient concoctions. I love Larabars for their use of what- like 3 or 4 ingredients- tops? It blows my mind how they mix cashews and dates and suddenly they taste exactly like cookie dough. How? It makes no sense! Wild stuff.
Needless to say, I always perk up when bloggers post about 2-ingredient or 3-ingredient creations. It seems so easy, so healthy, so wonderful and I’m always like “whaaat how did you get ice cream out of nothing but a banana and peanut butter?!” Like, how do you take pecans and flax seeds, mix them together with honey and BAM! something that tastes like peach cobbler? I don’t get it! But ever since I started this blog I’ve been wanting to experiment with minimal ingredient recipes and post something awesome like a 3-ingredient cobbler or a 2-ingredient baklava or something equally impressive.
But alas life has gotten in the way. Up until now.
You know how they say “God works in mysterious ways”? In other words, you might just get what you wish for, but it’s delivered in a way you weren’t necessarily expecting nor wanting?
Well, my dears, today I finally get to do my post on 2- to 4-ingredient creations. Here you go:
First up: 4-ingredient* late lunch**
Ingredients: original flavored froyo, mangoes, mochi, coconut
Procedure: Combine original froyo with mangoes, mochi and coconut. You don’t even have to stir. And definitely don’t let it sit. Eat immediately. (And eat quickly) It helps if you’re running late to a dermatologist appointment which is all the way across town and you’re shoveling it into your mouth in 90 degree heat.
Next up: 2-ingredient* dinner***
Ingredients: mint froyo, chocolate sprinkles
Procedure: Combine mint froyo and chocolate sprinkles in a cup. Eat it. (Fast) It helps if by dinner time it’s still 95 degrees in the shade, and after your dermatologist appointment ran late by 2 hours and then you ran a bunch of errands, you find yourself too hungry to wait until you get home to eat.
You guys, not to toot my horn, but I think I’m getting prett-ayyy good at this healthy recipe blogging stuff.
*Note: In no way does the combination of ingredients combine to form a completely different food.
**Note: I know I’m doing it wrong.
***Disclaimer: Neither I, nor any medical professionals, nor anyone in their right mind, recommend consuming this much froyo in one day.
SO, what do you have planned this weekend??
Whats the most froyo you’ve had in one day?

True or False: the toppings are the best part.
