I have been taking on WAY too many things lately. I took on 2 extra events at work this month, plus a birthday party for Anthony at my house (which of course means I have to clean like crazy) and a wedding. And that’s just October. WAHHH! I just want to bake pumpkin flavored things and pet my dog!
A few weeks ago I was really craving ambrosia salad. It was the weirdest craving. I think before this I had ambrosia salad once in my life, maybe twice. All the sudden it just sounded really good to me. Plus it’s called salad and there’s fruit in it so that makes it healthy right?! This is a great way to get your servings of fruit in!
Since I’m dairy free I had to search for dairy free whipped topping and I finally found it at Wegman’s! Silk makes a dairy free coconut milk whipped topping that I found in their dairy free freezer area. Obviously if you aren’t dairy free you can use regular whipped topping, but the extra coconut flavor was really good!
