Cooking :)

Broccoli Salad:

I added purple cauliflower to it! YUM! (No flavor difference, but sure made for a nice color.)

Shrimp, Tortellini and Spinach:

Peanut Butter Cookie Cups:
I got this recipe off the Pilsbury website. (I am having trouble locating it on the site.) You take ready made cookie dough (peanut butter type), and put a piece of candy in the center. Ben and I chose to put Rolo in the middle. :)

Last night was a good time with the DS group. Ben got to meet other DSers, and I'm so thrilled that our group is growing! Ben and I came back to the house and watched a movie.

My dad and Ben enjoyed the lunch. Cooking like this is EXPENSIVE. I am not used to this. The Kraft website has some budget recipes that I want to check into, as well as a "5 meals 1 bag" recipes for things to get for the entire week. It even comes with a handy checklist to take to the grocery. Again, I'm starting at the ground up here, so I am more than willing to learn by what may seem to be so basic to others.

At the grocery store, I also bought four different types of Larabars. These are not very carb friendly, but are overall healthy (and supposed to be very filling). Since I am more in the maintaining mode, I am going to give these a try. I'll update my thoughts on them as I eat them this week.

Lara Bars can become kind of addicting. :)
