But sometimes you just gotta have a sweet treat, ya know? Garr & I OCCASIONALLY take a little ride on over to the local yogurt drive thru after din din. Like, only occasionally three times a week.

All this time we thought we were getting away with our frozen dessert addiction. No, no, no. Those teenage yogurt scoopers look innocent, but man are they perceptive.

“Oh yeah – I remember you guys. You get the military discount & you like lids on your yogurt.”

……………. She knows we like lids. She basically knows our innermost workings. The jig is up!

Note to self: get new yogurt place or invest in disguises.

How to:

  • On pizza crust, add 1/2 broccolini mix + 1/2 bacon + 1/2 fontina
