I’m writing this post because in the past two days, I’ve bathed my formerly well-behaved dog twice after her white fur turned brown. I’m writing this post because only after I did three loads of laundry today, my other dog threw up in the car.
Because there’s something wrong with the vacuum and it’s spitting out everything it inhales. Because I’m not eating meat any more and my favorite take-out place made me a beef burrito instead of a bean one (so okay, I ate meat tonight). Because it’s been a busy week at work and all I really want to do is sleep in my sweats for three days.
Because I painted my nails one of those trendy grey-beige (“greige,” apparently) colors and I really don’t think I can pull it off. Because it’s been ninety degrees outside all week long and tomorrow’s the first of October. And because I’m about to go to sleep with my mascara on, I’ll share my new favorite recipe. Which is also my new favorite food.
Oreo Cheesecake Pretzel Sandwiches
Makes 12 pretzel bites
Ryan and I now call these crack sandwiches. Try them and I guarantee, you’ll understand.
7 Oreo cookies
1 ounce cream cheese (I used reduced-fat)
24 small square pretzels
1 cup melted chocolate chips
White sprinkles or shredded coconut for garnish (optional)
Place Oreos into a food processor and process until finely ground. Mix Oreo crumbs and cream cheese until dough forms. Pinch about a tablespoon of dough and form into a little square. Place onto pretzel then gently press top pretzel to close. Top with melted chocolate and white sprinkles or coconut, if desired. Chill until chocolate has hardened and serve. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer.
