I’ve mentioned that my third pregnancy was the Oreo pregnancy, right? Before then I could take or leave milk’s favorite cookie. Since then…well, let’s just say that my friend Britt calls me from the store every time she sees a new Oreo flavor. Do you feel a need to try New Flavor #427? (Sadly, yes. Yes, I do.)
I don’t just try new flavors, though–I keep a package of originals hidden in my house pretty much at all times, because you never know when you might want to make, say, Oreo Pudding Dream Bars. I tried them yesterday–my college student nephew came for dinner–and believe you me, you’re going to want to make them eventually. Picture a lovely Oreo crust (made of crushed Oreos and melted butter), with layers of cream-cheese-powdered-sugar-whipped-topping, Cookies and Cream pudding, straight whipped topping, and crushed Oreos on top. What’s not to love, right? (Nothing. There’s NOTHING not to love.) Cool, creamy Oreo goodness on a warm day.
Life is good.
