I'm Fruity

I can't leave all the fruit alone this year.
It has been so so good, all summer long
...and, a really sweet reader named MITZI left a comment on my last fruit post...
but she isn't a blogger...and no email address.
"MITZI...I hope you are reading this...THANKS SO MUCH."
She told me about the BEST fruit dip...
the dip recipe I gave you last week is DELICIOUS.. but this one MIGHT be more delicious.
SO, I HAD to buy more fruit...
and tell YOU about this dip..
when I first tasted it....I almost fainted...
some GRANDGIRLS were over the other day and both tried it with fruit..
and then got up and got them each a spoon and....
I had to make MORE...
If you try it, I sure hope you like it, too.
MERCY ! BROWN SUGAR AND SOUR CREAM

make an entire post about......FRUIT DIP ?♥♥♥

I've had that dip and it IS delicious, sugar!!! I'm trying to lose weight so won't eat it again for a while, but it is so easy and good.

I'd vote for Herman Cain in a heart beat, honey! I hope he gets the nomination.....

Looks like a dip worth trying!! I just got back from a road trip through your part of Texas. I see now why you were excited to get some rain awhile ago - it is REALLY dry, isn't it? Sad for those farmers and ranchers. Sally

I have learned that anything that you say is good IS good and worth trying. Hmmmm, I might have to run for some fruit now!

Mitzi said...

I am glad that you enjoyed the fruit dip I suggested. I wish I was as talented as all you ladies who write blogs. I am a faithful follower of many many blogs, but don't feel like I would ever have enough to share. My life is pretty laid back here in Michigan. By the way my e-mail is Marlynerskine@yahoo.com. Write me anytime.

Vee said...

No, I call her talented! Sour cream and brown sugar...I might be able to remember that!

Believe me there is nothing wrong with you when it comes to food preparation. You could take the worst and it would turn out great. This sounds so simple and delicious.

The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on."

Oh and I have to mention the new blog look, here. Very, very cute. You got into the mood and you did it justice. As always. :-))))))))

Looks yummy, Beeej and you are such a cutie!!!

TexWisGirl said...

i've been enjoying a lot of fruit this summer too - must be the heat that makes fruit inviting over anything warm. but i like mine 'undressed.' :)

Never would have thought! I will be making this.

jeanne said...

Hi bj, I just commented on the birthday girls. You mentioned the birthdays on your comment and I just didn't get over until today. We are blessed and I thank God for my blessings every day.

The dip sounds so good and soooo easy. BJ, you could make a great post out of a stone. HA! Your photos look good enough to eat.
Love you bunches xo, Jeanne

Just today, on the way home from retreat I was telling the ladies about this dip - Great Minds think alike! I learned about this years ago in Denmark - really good on stewed fruit in winter too.

Mandy said...

Yum, looks delicious! Fun to see another Mackenzie-Childs fan!

Michele Smith said...

Thank you for the sweet comment! They are decals on my jars. I ordered them from the House of Smith's blog.
You can also find many different options on etsy. I'm obsessed with that place! LOL
