moving day

Today we start the trek to California! Our pod is already on the way…

And our snacks are ready. (More on that to come.)

We had a great few days in Wisconsin, full of hikes with family at Devil’s Lake…

Badger Games with friends…

And visiting loved ones.

In the next few days, we’ll be visiting the Badlands, Utah – Salt Lake and Cedar City and Vegas (?) before our final destination of Los Angeles.

Have any road trip games for us to play?! 

creamy apple dip

Last week I taught a Nutrition/Cooking class for some wonderful adults with disabilities.
I’ve never done anything like it and I will admit that I was a little nervous. Ok, I was pretty much terrified. I didn’t really know what to expect, I hoped they would enjoy it and I really wanted them to like the apple dip that we made and then snacked on. :)

I talked about the plate method of eating that we use at Camp and then showed them how to make a favorite fall dip of mine. I grew up eating a dip very similar to this every fall, and it brings back memories of crunchy, golden leaves in the woods.

The class ended up going pretty well (they seemed to enjoy it!) and the dip went over fantastically, which I knew it would. I always eat it with apples, but it would be delicious on probably anything!


Creamy Apple Dip

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Yield: about 2 cups


  • 8 oz light cream cheese
  • 1 cup yogurt (I used a vanilla-honey variety)
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped peanuts


  1. Using a mixer, combine cream cheese, yogurt and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add peanuts and mix to combine.
  3. Serve with apple slices. Other fruit, crackers, etc would also be delicious.
