Eat: Quick Dip in the Mud
I must admit that we are one of “those families” who are pretty careful about the amount of “treats” our kids consume. Our general guideline is that Sunday is our Treat Day, when we get to enjoy a delicious treat as a family, as a celebration of the sweetness of the Lord’s love for us. Admittingly, the “reason” for the treat sometimes gets lost in translation, but it’s something we try and stick to, nonetheless.
Typically we decide on Friday what treat we want on Sunday (so we can be sure to buy the ingredients we need during our Saturday Grocery Outing). It involves discussion and sometimes involves some negotiation (ice cream? brownies? candy?) because we all have to agree on one thing.
One of our favorites is Quick Dip in the Mud (from a Sesame Street Cookbook). It’s easy and easily adaptable from many different tastes.
Anything that dips!
We choose angel food cake, strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows. I really like using Baker’s chocolate melting cup because it’s so easy to melt without worrying about burning the chocolate.
