I made two yummy meals over the weekend.

 First, a very simple recipe that I made for breakfast.

Greek yogurt + a spoonful of fat free sugar free chocolate Jello pudding mix = Awesome.  The texture is like that of chocolate mouse and totally cured my sweet tooth at 7am.  Add some fruit and a little granola and breakfast was served!

Second, a yummy spicy casserole!  Chris loved it and had two huge servings.  I get tired of making the same meals over and over, so when Amanda posted this one, I knew it was perfect for the weekend.  I modified it a little and used what we had in the fridge.  I also made a baked spaghetti for Cameryn since she wouldn't appreciate the spicy taste of this recipe.
