Cake Batter Dip

Yesterday, we were talkin' prepositions.  I love grammar.  It's fun.  And practical.
The worksheet had 8 sentences and as we were going through them, one by one,  I noticed something.

That bottom one is "Stanley".
I nearly shrieked, "They're all characters from The Office!".  Nearly.  Several students (I think) knew what I was talking about.  I was sure to explain to the ones who didn't.  Parents, again, you're welcome.
P.S.  This really just means that I clearly did NOT look at the worksheet before I printed it off of the internet, made 30 copies, and passed it out.  
I had limited expectations for this dip. 3 ingredients??  Really??

I was invited to a book exchange.   My problem when I'm asked to "bring something" is that I always want to try something new.  I have a pretty substantial recipe index and a boatload of family recipes (that have yet to be published).  But I always want to try something new.   This has happened before.

So I found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen and I halfheartedly picked up the ingredients on a Friday night, thinking that if it wasn't any good, I'd just go with Jalapeno Popper Dip, my stand-by.

It will be one of the best things you ever put in your mouth.


Whatever.  Just make it.  Today.  Don't wait.  You're welcome.

Cake Batter Dip
makes about 4 cups
from Tasty Kitchen

1 box of Funfetti cake mix (just the powdered cake mix)
1 tub of Cool Whip (I used Lite.  Ha.)
2 6oz. containers of vanilla yogurt

Graham crackers, animal crackers, Vanilla wafers, etc. for dipping

In a bowl, fold the yogurt, softened Cool Whip, and cake mix together until just combined.  Keep it in the fridge for at least 3 hours before serving.  Since it's Cool Whip, it needs to be kept cold.  But I'm betting that it will disappear before it gets warm and melts.

*Also* I stirred some into my morning coffee.  Delightful!  It reminds me of this Cake Batter Creamer (which is big hit in our house).
