I was sick and I cooked! (kind of)

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I was a little under the weather yesterday, so I actually stayed home from work.  I had a brutal headache and dumb-A me figured staying home would make me feel better.  Well, if you read my blog, you know I have 2 kids.  Two kids that are constantly bickering with one another.  Of course they both thought that since mom was home it was “party time”.  They wanted to watch TV with me, have me play games with them and do anything else they could possibly dream up.  About an hour after I woke up, I was wishing I was at work. It is MUCH quieter there!

Anyhoo, my day consisted of me cuddling on the couch with Cole, while watching Rio.

Then I watched Good Luck Charlie with Ashley.  She said “You just have to watch and see what kind of baby they have”.  She kills me.  I watched it with her, and again, my unbalanced hormonal self was crying when the baby was born!! Oh goodness I even disappoint myself.

After my crying ended the kids begged to go swimming.  So I figured it would be quieter and more relaxing outside.  It wasn’t.  They fought over the floats (which we have 100s of) and about who could jump the farthest, swim the farthest, etc.  I even allowed them to have some popsicles for the 10 minutes of quiet that I’d get from it.

Yes that’s my finger – it was just too darn bright to see it when I took the picture!

Then while digging through the fridge for some lunch, I found that I had some cottage cheese and Cool Whip, so I decided to whip up a wonderful summer fluff salad.  Now this is the kind of salad that even I can’t mess up!

Raspberry Fluff Salad

Here’s what you need:

ingredients

Combine cottage cheese and Jell-O and mix well.

Add Cool Whip and fresh raspberries and fold in.

After blended well, it’s ready to serve or you can refrigerate it so it thickens up a little bit.

finished

Ash and I loved it.  She has no idea that there is cottage cheese in it though.  She always says “what is that I have to chew”, and I say “it’s raspberries”. So far, she is buying it.  It’s a perfect summer salad/dessert. 

Well tonight I’m off to see Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.  The 3-D in this movie looks amazing.  It doesn’t have great reviews on Rotten Tomatoes – but most of the movies I like don’t get good reviews.  I’ll be sure to let you all know.

I've tried something very similar to this. My friend uses mandarin oranges and orange jello. You're right, it's yummy!!
