Yogurt

I am thankful for the many ways our family has been blessed this winter. From unexpected checks in the mail to friendships to "angels unawares", we've seen them all. This week we enjoyed something that was lighthearted and fun, not to mention tasty. General Mills has a program called "My Get Together" and I am a member. They had mailed a prepaid VISA to use toward purchasing Yoplait yogurt and other food. I was to host a home party, you see.

The fun thing about this home party is that I didn't have to sell anything, as I have had to do in the past (i.e. Pampered Chef, Tupperware, etc.). With the pressure off, people are free to enjoy the party. I enjoyed the party because it didn't cost me a ton of money - Yoplait had paid for most of it with that prepaid card.

I prepared Raspberry Trifle - the hands down favorite of the night, Southwest Taco Dip, crunchy tacos, and Chocolate-dipped Fruit Wreath. We also tasted some different flavors and varieties of Yoplait yogurt. Yoplait is gluten-free but the raspberry trifle, sadly, is not. It is prepared with angel food cake so I couldn't eat it. My friends and family, however, love it. It smells wonderful.....



As for other thankful things, we did not get much of a winter storm way up here, though not all that far south of us the blizzard raged. My family back in Indiana are safe even though they were blasted by it.

God is good.
