Swimming. It's how my 4 year old thinks we should spend every day. It's 91° here today, so swimming sounds good to me!

I think so too. I got this recipe from cookingclub magazine.

Their magazines are full of recipes. If you've seen the Spinach mozzarella stuffed burgers, thyme roasted broccoli and cauliflower with lemon salt... I got those there as well. I've made those already. They turned out wonderfully.


One magazine also had vampire cupcakes, and cheesy toes with stinky dip for halloween. It was a cheese cracker in the shape of a toe, with an almond sliver for a toe nail, and very aromatic dip to go with it. Was really yummy.

The vampire cupcake recipe ... also had the icing from scratch. So easy to do.

Turned out great.

(gonna sound like an ad for them here but..) it's only 24 dollars for 2 years worth of magazines, and free total access to their site, plus chances to win stuff for the kitchen, plus gifts for when you sign up, plus the ability to test products and keep them. It's pretty awesome.
