Last night was a perfect weekday night. No hockey practice, no homework, my 3 year old son let me workout to Jillian Michaels on my laptop.... without  pouncing on me.

Simultaneously," Something's gotta Give" was on TV.

Latley, I have been in the mood to try new recipes and  have tried three since Friday. One was ok, one was really good and of course the unhealthy one....I made last night was amazing. The only credit that goes to me is for going to the grocery store and picking up the neccessary items. Lynda Cameron-Bayer and BHG get the gold medal for this recipe..
