Yesterday I helped host a bridal shower for one of the girls at work, man I never realized how much work goes into a shower. I was responsible for a chicken salad and croissants, cupcakes, and a cracker appetizer with bacon. My first thought was to buy cupcakes from a bakery, but when I looked into the cost I almost had a small heart attack when I realized I would be paying $ 36 for a dozen. I don't like to bake and I am not very confident in my baking abilities but I made a batch of wedding cake cupcakes from a recipe on pinterest. They were not diet friendly by any means but they were good, I made sure to give them all away and I didn't save any for hubby and myself. I also made some stuffed strawberries I also saw on pinterest, again this is the picture from pinterest mine were not this perfect looking but they were easy and worth making again. The recipe I chose for the strawberries was cream cheese, powdered sugar, and almond extract. I bet it would work just as well with stevia instead of powdered sugar.
Tonight I have been prepping the turkey pumpkin chili from skinnytaste to put in the crock pot tomorrow. I am making a double recipe because I am taking some to my in-laws. Almost a month ago my MIL fell and broke her left ankle and left wrist. She doesn't like things that seem weird or out of the box so I am only telling her that it is turkey chili and not pumpkin chili :) Have a wonderful week everyone.
