Monday, Monday, So Good To Me

Okay, so I like The Mamas & The Papas...

Today was so good to me!  I've been looking for some sugar-free Peeps for about a week now and I just happened to be in Wal-Mart today when they were putting some out!  Three little scrumptious chickies for 98 cents!!  Woo hooo!!  
And I made a broccoli and brown rice casserole for supper.  Here's a pic!  (Purple plates show a lot of fingerprints.  Ha!)  It was very, very good!!  And real good friends with the South Beach diet.
This is how I made it:

I steamed a package of frozen broccoli and cooked two cups of brown rice.  Then I drained both of them and added a can of reduced fat Cream of Mushroom soup, topped it with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and baked it at 350 for 20 minutes.  Yum yum!!!

But the best thing about today was I got my books for school!!  I went out to the college bookstore at lunch and the line was SO long!  They were moving pretty fast, though, and I only had to wait 45 minutes to get mine.  I only had to pay $106 because my Hope grant paid $100 toward them.  I am so ready for class to start!!  All I gotta do now is sharpen my pencils.  :)


  1. I did not know they had sugar free peeps! I just may have to allow myself some for an Easter treat! Thanks, Ginger! Oh...and that broccoli brown rice casserole looks delicious! =)

  2. Haven't seen those peeps around here. Your casserole looks like it is good. I'll have to try it. For the books that is wonderful that you got them early and for less. Love you!

  3. found them and got them, but dang girl - 23 sugar alcohols per pack...haha! I just ate one and it had been in my car so it was slightly melty and delightful. thanks for the tip!!! =)

  4. I'm glad you found some, Kim!! Yeah, 23 sugar alcohols. Eat 'em but definitely don't make no plans that'll put you too far from a bathroom!! Ha!!

    Happy Easter!! :)

  5. Your weight loss is an inspiration for the rest of us!!! Keep it up girl!
