One of my favorite things about my mom is that she speaks mainly in idioms.
When someone says something mean, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
When I’m waiting to hear about a job, “The squeaky wheel gets the oil!”
When we were complaining about cleaning the house for Thanksgiving, “Many hands make for light work!”
When Morgan gets herself into some dramatic encounter and takes no responsibility, “It takes two to tango.”
When I solve a crafty problem, “A Girl Scout is resourceful.”
…just to name a few. One that I always live by is “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
10-12 apples of your choice (I used Granny Smith)
1 brick softened cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup caramel
handful of mini chocolate chips
handful of Heath bits
Mix the cream cheese and brown sugar and spread in the bottom of a dish.
Spread a thin layer of caramel over the top, then sprinkle the Heath bits and chocolate chips over that.
This is super easy and a good thing to bring to holiday parties because you can make it ahead. If you can’t find the Heath bits (sometimes it’s tricky), you could use chopped nuts, peanut butter chips, shredded coconut, etc.
We really hit the nail on the head with this one.
