First, I put together a take-home meal for friends who just had a baby. There's broccoli and dip, chili ingredients in the crock-pot that just needs to be plugged in, cheese and sour cream for toppings, and corn bread. I'm hoping it will provide a good meal plus a lot of leftovers (at least if it tastes good).
Plus I got baby Ben 'n' Jerry's pints for desert. My hand is in this picture both to show you the scale and to show my approval.
I also attempted to make up for all of the times I brought a 2-liter of Diet Coke to our office potluck lunches by making a quiche to take to a gathering this week. Multiply this guy x2 because I had two pie crusts and two quiches worth of spicy greens I wanted to get rid of.
And last but not least, I made coconut bars for our church small group meeting tomorrow. Coconut is one of those foods that people feel strongly about, but *I* really like it and I'm hoping that someone else will as well. I've never made this recipe before, so I may have to test one out tonight for quality control purposes.
And there you have it. Now I feel completely justified in eating Campbell's for dinner for the rest of the week.
*And one very long run-on sentence.
