Tallulah's food binge.

It started innocently enough: Apples and a small piece of cheese seemed like a good choice when reaching for a wholesome nutritious snack after the very healthy bowl of oatmeal sweetened with raisins and 1/4 cup of apple juice. But something happened somewhere between the first bite of apple and the consequent bite of cheese...Tallulah became a ravenous hedgehog rooting around for more.

Pacing nervously back in forth in her kitchen wondering what would taste good: Potato chips with french onion dip, pepperoni, black olive and fresh garlic pizza (Xlarge), giant bowl of pasta n' pesto, pickled peppers sprinkled over falafels with red pepper sauce and tatziki. Sadly, no ingredients were on hand for these items.

Tallu had to figure something out as her body was SCREAMING for something that didn't exist in her cupboards, pantry and fridge. Dubbed the Idea Queen, she took a deep breath opened the fridge a 10th time and figured out the ideal comfort food for her panic attack.

2 tablespoons of cream cheese (softened for 10 seconds in the microwave), 15 green olives finely diced and 2 small slices of red onion finely chopped. Mixed together. 8 Saltine crackers purely for dipping pleasure. And spoon just incase there was more dip than cracker.

Crisis overted...and it was soooooooooooooooooo goood.
