Once in a while my experiments actually turn out

Last night, persuing the local grocery store (small, family owned - yes, they still do exist) I saw a rather large display for sweet home grown Michigan strawberries. I'm not normally a strawberry eater, but last year, around this time, I recall being at a party where there were some exceedingly good strawberries and a cream cheese concoction for dipping them in. I swear, I could have eaten the whole plate. So, for $1.99 a pound I thought I'd give them a try. Then proceeded to pick up some cream cheese to see if I could duplicate what I had last year.

At 11:00 last night I got my ingrediants together, if everything went as planned (rare for me) I could take it in to work for snacking purposes. So, I washed and I mixed and I blended and....SUCCESS! Not only were the strawberries themselves incredibly yummy, but my cream cheese concotion turned out pretty good as well. Hard to believe I'm liking something this much that doesn't have chocolate in it. And is relatively healthy. Though, I'm now having thoughts of doing a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and strawberries on top. I'll have to see how nice I want to be to my co-workers. ;)

I still have not finished season 6 of Buffy. My plan is to watch 'Grave' tonight and be done with it. Last night I was in too crappy of a mood to enjoy it. Thankfully, a chat with my buddies and a call from writteninstars perked me up. WIS and I did discuss the possibility of WriterCon, but it isn't looking doable. It sucks because there will be many wonderful people there we would love to meet.

Anyone else watching the show Blow Out? I didn't intend to watch, but it came on after Queer Eye and I managed to get sucked in. Actually, I just want to see if the loud mouth stylist and bitchy manicurist get canned. :p

Back to the Hellmoth (AKA work).

Oh yes, I'd also loved to have the recipe for the cream cheese concoction - I have strawberries in the refrigerator and I can try it :) Strawberries do go with everything, chocolate included ;)
So you don't have to scroll back ;)....I took 8oz of cream cheese (softened) and blended that with about 2-3 tsps of vanilla and a little bit of milk. Then I slowly added about a cup and a half to two cups of powdered sugar. Basically, I make things to taste.

I should probably look into that chocolate you can microwave - dip the strawberries in that and then the cream cheese. Mmmmmmm.
Thank you! :) It sounds so easy, and it sounds like it would make a great cheesecake!
