Delightfully Gluten Free (TM)

Fake Dessert

After making the cakes for Braden’s birthday party, and not getting sick from the smell (because of my great meds), I decided to have some.  Well, apparently this baby does not like sugar.  I guess I can live with that.  It was easy enough over the last 2 months, because the smell made me sick.  But now I really wanted something sweet.  So here’s what I did:

I whipped up 2 blocks of fat free cream cheese (less guilt), a few scoops of peanut butter, and 6 packets of Splenda.  This was not very sweet – I was afraid if I added any more Splenda I’d get that horrible aftertaste.  I did add a few semi-sweet chocolate chips.

It was not quite cheesecakey, but was a nice little “dessert” of sorts.  It could be a good spread.  It had enough peanut butter to taste the peanut butter, but you could still taste the cream cheese, too.  Carter was very upset when I put it back in the fridge.

By the way, I can’t find my camera.  That’s why you did not get pictures of my canadian bacon and pineapple pizza last night.  Too bad, it was good.  Andy left the table during dinner to answer a phone call – his bad.  Braden ate 6 pieces, and Andy only got 1 & 1/2.   I’m starting to worry about when these boys become teenagers.  What will I do?
