Blame the evil corporate overlords.
I know you people have pinned an attitude on me. I hear the whispers . . . the snickers you think I don't hear. I know I've never made a small amount of food, ever. Yes I'm aware that I hardly ever make what others would deem "enough."
But, this time, it isn't my fault.
ESK's birthday is this week. I found this fab recipe for a tiramisu dip. Although it has some sugar in it, the straight up dairy makes it a dessert more in line with our diets. And, I'm going to serve it with a choice of butter cookies or fresh strawberries. (I have even talked to my favorite strawberry farmer and he is going to deliver a bucket of his choicest strawberries to my office in the morning!) And, I can tell you now, I'm going to make too much.
But, hear me out.
The recipe calls for 12 oz of marscapone cheese. But our local grocery only sells 8 oz containers. So, do I make not enough? Of course not! This is a birthday party! And, the recipe calls for 8 oz ricotta cheese. And, again, the only sizes of ricotta available at my grocery are 15 oz, 24 oz, and 32 oz.
So, yes, I will actually be making more than the recipe calls for . . . but it ISN'T MY FAULT. This time.
