Wow, no truer words were ever spoken.  Especially for me this summer.  I mean, I think every summer goes fast, but this is my first summer that has been bookended by school years in a very long time.  Add to that the blur that is life with an infant, unpacking/repacking/unpacking/repacking/unpacking/repacking/unpacking to go to my mom’s, Minnesota, my mom’s and, well, umm, my mom’s, four weeks of camp for The Bug (which meant dropping him off and then turning around to pick him up three hours later), The Hubby getting Lyme, and suddenly I have a 5 1/2 month old, and I am trying to squeeze in haircuts, doctor appointments, new shoes, and back-to-school shopping.  

Craziness!

But some days felt like an eternity.  Awake at midnight, 3 am, 5 am, then not falling back to sleep before The Bug wakes up at 7:30, feed the baby, feed me, feed The Bug, baby down for nap, deal with tantrums, oh wait, baby still won’t sleep, epic 3 year old tantrum, make lunch except, oh crap breakfast dishes are still in the sink, they can wait till after lunch, but gotta feed the baby again, pick up Bug from camp, wrestle him out of the back of the van into the carseat, take Bug up for nap and read books, Bug’s not napping, oh well, leave him there till I feed baby AGAIN, get baby down for nap, get Bug up, start playing, WAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!, “No Mommy, he needs to sleep more!”, why yes, yes he does, but not much I can do about that, oh crap the dishes are still there, clean up the disaster in the kitchen, feeding again, baths, make dinner, eat dinner, clean up, ANOTHER baby feeding, tell Hubby to bring The Bug up to bed because I.NEED.TO.CRASH!!!

And now I am gonna blink again and it’ll be Christmas.

Red, White & Blue Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Dip Trio
 
Just a couple ingredients and a few minutes to make a tasty & light sweet treat for dipping you favorite fruits, cookies or crackers.
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert, Dip
Ingredients
  • One single serving container of Strawberry and/or Raspberry Greek Yogurt (I used Strawberry Raspberry Yoplait Greek)
  • One single serving container of Vanilla or Coconut Greek Yogurt (I have used both Vanilla and Coconut Yoplait Greek)
  • One single serving container of Blueberry Greek Yogurt (I used Blueberry Yoplait Greek)
  • 1½ c whipped cream cheese (if you want to make all three and just use a single 8 oz. tub of cream cheese, you'll need slightly less than ½ c for each flavor)
  • Fruit, graham crackers, cookies, pie crust sticks, etc. for dipping
Instructions
  1. In three separate bowls, gently fold together each of the yogurt flavors with about ½ c whipped cream cheese.
  2. Serve with fruit, graham crackers, cookies, pie crust sticks, etc. for dipping. Serve immediately or keep chilled in the refrigerator.
Notes
There is no need to let the whipped cream cheese come to room temperature. It will work either way, but if you do let it come to room temperature, it won't be quite as thick and fluffy, but it will be slightly smoother. I prefer mixing it right after taking the cream cheese and yogurt out of the refrigerator.

 Enjoy!

    “And now I am gonna blink again and it’ll be Christmas” = so true for me too. I still can’t get over that it is September. Seriously crazy how time flies. And I think chowing on these cheesecake dips is a great thing to do while pondering how quickly the days pass.

    First of all, your routine exhausts me just to read about it! It’s been a few years since I had 2 littles, and so it sort of raised the hairs on the back of my neck to remember how tiring it all was. Second, how clever of you to make 3 flavors using one base. Enjoy your weekend!

    What a fantastic idea, Brianne! It’s a cheesecake lover’s dream come true. You can try out different flavors with various cookies, crackers and fruits. Bravo for the recipes =)

    Bravo, too, for all the caring work it takes to be a good mommy…I do hope you have a labor-free, restful weekend. (We can all pray for miracles, right?)

    I love that quote–the days are long but the years are short. It really helps me keep the right perspective while the kids are young. I know I’m going to miss these days!
    This recipe looks awesome! Pinnning it now and hoping to try out soon.
    I’m stopping by from Whimsy Wednesday (#36 DIY Birth Announcements and 38 Bowl Licking Good Guacamole) Have a great week!

    Sounds yummy, being a Cheescake lover I know for sure that these should taste delicious… We have done similar things but never really called them cheescake but I know the feeling and for sure the taste. They look great and tasty.
