Dirt Cake


Wow, how long has it been since I've posted a Tasty Tuesday. I am still here, alive and well. Just BUSY!!

Just as a side note before we get to the recipe my sister sent me, I am having a 4-D sonogram Thursday afternoon. I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Now, back to you regularly scheduled program post!

You will need:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 packages instant vanilla pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 pack Oreos

Crush Oreo cookies into pieces and keep to the side.
Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar together in a small bowl.
In a large bowl mix milk and pudding.
After pudding and milk is mixed, fold in the whipped topping.
Combine pudding mixture and cream cheese mixture together.
Layer in a trifle bowl, starting with cookies then the pudding mixture. Continue to layer ending with crushed Oreos as the top layer.
Chill until ready to serve (at least 1 hour).

How Rude!


My biggest pet peeve has got to be, people that come to work (or anywhere) sick. I mean really, the rest of us do not want to share your germs with you.

The most aggravating thing to me is when someone comes to my desk, then backs up two steps and says “Don’t get close to me, I have (fill in the sickness)” If you are sick, and you are going to touch things around the office (or wherever) your germs are still there when I touch that door or faucet or whatever after you! If you are coughing all over the place, the fact that you aren’t breathing directly into my face is not going to keep your germs off of me. If you are sick, don’t come near me, don’t come to my desk to tell me you are sick and for pitty-sake, do not think, for one second, you should touch anything on my desk. Do not cough into your hand and then use the SAME hand to pick-up something you are going to hand to me! Please just stay home if you are sick. I am pregnant, and my immune system isn’t where it should be right now. It is very dangerous for me to get sick, it could mean life and death for me and my child in some cases. What may seem like a harmless sickness to you simply isn’t harmless to others with lowered immunities or to those of us who have much more to loose than a few hours of work.

Wash your hands, and try to stay well....no matter how hard the inconsiderate people make it!!

And while I am on my "soap" box so to speak, check out this post by Ellen at Profoundly Seth...I have got to get one of these signs before little Maci gets here (and yes, I am going to be one of "those" mothers I am afraid)

For those who foolishly asked....



.....here is a "pregnant belly" shot (if you can call it that) standing in my mom's kitchen at 22 weeks. I am sure it's obvious by looking at my face I was oh-so-happy to take this picture!

Take it all in, this may be the last picture you see of me until after Miss Maci is born and I drop around 85 lbs!! Enjoy {Wink}
