Frosting and graham crackers

Growing up, I used to love it when we had frosting and graham crackers as part of our school lunches. It was awesome! And the lunch ladies normally mixed food colouring in with the frosting so that we’d have green frosting on St. Patrick’s Day, pink on Valentine’s Day, and whatever random colour they wanted to use other times.

Now that I’m a grownup, I can’t be bothered with silly things like mixing food colouring with my frosting. So I just eat my graham crackers with plain, white frosting.

Of course, sometimes I can’t be bothered to spread frosting on graham crackers. When that happens, I just eat the frosting with a spoon—unless I can’t be bothered with that, either; in which case I just use my finger.

Oh, and just in case you ever come to visit and you see an open container of frosting in the fridge, just know that at some point I’ve stood there with the fridge door open eating frosting with my finger. And I double dip. And I’m not ashamed of it.

Yum. I think I’ll go have another serving now…

Ew!

*makes mental note to stay clear of the frosting*

Thanks for the warning!!

If it makes you feel better, I never drink out of the carton and frosting is the only food I dip my finger in like that. But I DO eat peanut butter and ice cream out of the containers with a spoon.

However, I would never do that if I knew someone else had to share the food with me. I’m nice like that. ;)

I’ve never known anyone else who loves to eat frosting straight out of the can. Being an adult has largely guilted me into not doing that anymore, but when someone makes a cake and there’s half a can of frosting left, guaranteed I will polish it off over the next day or so. Lemon is my favorite. Never tried it with graham crackers.

I go the other way: Being an adult who lives alone and pays all the bills (including the grocery bill) I don’t feel an ounce of guilt for being a piggy little slob. ;)
