Fruit Dip & More Vacay Recap

Forgive me today for posting an extremely simple recipe & without a picture to boot. I've been in a fog since coming back from vacation; just lazy, not cooking much or getting back into my groove of working out & challenging myself to tackle as much as I can at once. I think I'll turn things around this weekend.

Anyway, I made this as a little healthy treat while we were in Hilton Head, something to snack on in the midst of all the other indulgences. I remained somewhat healthy on vacation by pulling Tristan in this kiddy cart to the Piggly Wiggly on a couple of mornings & around the resort & to the harborside, as well as doing laps in the pool in between each beer I had.




Fruit Dip

1 cup of non-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup of applesauce
Dash of nutmeg
A few sprinkles of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients & serve with fruit, especially apples & strawberries.

And a couple more of my favs from the vacation:

{I love this shot of the torch lit at Charley's Crab on the intracoastal. Thank you for the recommendation Leigh Anne! Or was it a demand?!}

{We were beat our first night. This chair was my favorite spot in the house we rented}


{I hope one day my son likes the beach better than he does now. Still makes for a handsome beach goer}


Have a great weekend everyone! I'll be back next week with some goodies.

Looks like a great trip! I am hoping Natey likes the beach this summer. Last year all he wanted to do was eat the sand!

Coco said...

The pic or you and Trysten napping is hilarious. Y'all look just alike in the picture.

Have a great weekend!

I do a similar dip--but with strawberry yogurt and coolwhip and cinnamon. Delish.

As is Charley's Crab.
You now know why I rave about it.
Sigh...
Only 2 more months till their She-Crab soup passes these lips. Sigh...

Looks like a really fun vacation! That dip looks super tastey too!! Well...take your time getting back into the swing of things! It always takes me awhile to get back to reality after a vacation!

Angela said...

Great pics girl! You did a much better job than me at staying semi-healthy on vacay. I basically ate everythink in sight and drank even more. ;-)

Can't wait to catch up. We are back from weekend vacation and zonked - heading for some sleep right now in fact. But will catch up this week! Hugs!

Michelle said...

Great shots. The one of you sleeping with Tristan is too funny.
