One down and one to go. Our son in-law made it home from Afghanistan. Now in just a few months our son will make it back from Iraq. Yeehaw. Thank you for all of the prayers for the soldiers and families. A few weeks ago my Dad asked us to pray for President Obama I thought that is a weird request. Now that I think about it he needs all the prayers he can get his hands on. So far I have been pretty impressed with the performance remember this is my opinion.
Back to food. I made this tasty dish it was so easy and low in calories also. It would be lovely to serve at Easter Brunch or a Shower. I would love to give credit to who wrote the recipe. But I picked it up at the grocery store one of those little cards. I can't even remember which store it came from. One serving is 215 calories. The little children would love this, the grapes have so much flavor. Adding that little bit of almond to the cream just takes it over the top almost to a dessert level. I am sure if you wanted you could easily leave out the sugar and lower the calories more. I did not toast the almonds on mine.
