We’ve had a fun, yet full weekend. For Father’s Day, we ventured down to Sioux Falls for some shopping. Before we went, I made breakfast (since I figured we’d just have 2 semi-large meals), and I started on dessert:
When my dad was here, he picked this up in the Goss Opera House gift shop, the day we went to see the dinosaur exhibit. I never got around to making this until today, but it was easy enough. Just the packets, and a few other ingredients:
I started working on it as I made my “happy Father’s Day” call to my dad this morning. All I had to do was make a graham cracker crust, which was easy enough (I could’ve copped out and bought one, but we had plenty of graham crackers leftover from our S’mores desserts a couple weeks ago).
Then I whipped up the cream cheese, whipped topping (although even generic whipped topping is Cool Whip, as far as I’m concerned) and a quarter-cup of butter. There was a packet of toffee bits in the package, that was almost like powder, which I added to the cream cheese mixture. Then I spooned it into the crust:
This isn’t the winning contest photo…Melby Photography still hasn’t updated the blog, which I’m hoping maybe they’ll do tomorrow. We didn’t eat the greatest, but it’s almost impossible to find much “healthy” to eat there. We started with some chicken:
And then came the steak:
And after a stop at Target, we made our way back to Brookings. Jay enjoyed his Father’s Day, and I think the bambino liked hanging out with his daddy. And I’m off to work on the laundry I didn’t bother doing until we got home!
