Monday Mealtime – What I’ve Been Making

BE FOREWARNED: I started this blog post on Monday, but just realized that I never finished it up. Go me! So…let’s travel back to Monday, that awesome day when I had a day off and I was not sitting at my desk at work. Oh, those were the days…

Today is Labor Day, which means I am home with the kids. I am planning to make brats for dinner, and I really¬†want to finally try a quinoa recipe. I bought the quinoa, and now I’ve overwhelmed myself on Pinterest. While I’m trying to whittle down what to make, check out what I’ve been cooking!

Update: Quinoa is gross. I will never post about it again. Pinky promise.

Weekend Cooking!

I’m really trying to get a blogging schedule going, but it will likely be sporadic at best until around September. I work in a college store and this is our busiest time of year. It’s crazy!

Monday Recipe Review – Weight Watchers Potato Salad

This past weekend, I knew that we were going to have brats for dinner, but I wanted to try something new for a side dish. So I went on a Pinterest treasure hunt and came up with something I rarely make: potato salad.

I rarely make it because my mother-in-law just so happens to make THE best potato salad in the world. She keeps telling me how she doesn’t have a recipe. She just knows what to put in it. I know full well that my potato salad skillz will never match hers, so I never even try.

But you know what? Her recipe is so unhealthy. So deliciously and decadently unhealthy. Mmmmm.

I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could make a decent potato salad that didn’t kill me on Weight Watchers. So thankfully, WW had a recipe I could try!

Weight Watchers American Potato Salad Recipe
There’s the recipe. Better yet, if you’re a member of WW, you can find it in their app by searching for “American Potato Salad”.
