Stolen recipe - Candy Apple Salad

The lovely blogger, Dusty, over at All Things G+D, posted an absolutely deeeelicious looking recipe that I have to steal and share with anyone who might read this (I even stole her pictures, shhhhh.) Book mark Dusty's blog, she has a lot of great stuff on there! Here's the recipe!

What you need:
Apples (granny smith would probably be the best)
Snickers candy bar (frozen)
Cool Whip
Instant butterscotch pudding mix

1) Chop up about 5 large apples into bite-sized pieces.

2) Add Snickers pieces - about 8-10 snack sized bars are good (Stephanie note: I would so add more than that! )

Dusty's tip - Put the Snickers in the freezer and then use the smooth side of a meat tenderizer to mash the bar, all while it's in the wrapper.

3) Mix in 1 pack of instant butterscotch pudding mix (just the powder) and 1 small container of Cool Whip to the apples and Snickers.

4) Stick it in the fridge until serving. Or..... eat it all because you have no control, like me!

I don't know about you, but I plan on making this one pretty soon. I kinda want to leave work to try it right now, but that's because I have a ridiculous sweet tooth.
Separate post coming soon about our (hopefully!) new house! Stay tuned

Me = bad blogger

I've been a terrible blogger lately. Rett & I have been crazy busy with work and we're in the process of looking to buy our first home! Yay! Renting for 8 years was waaaaaaaay too long, but the economy has kind of worked in our favor, since we're able to get more house for our budget than we would have been able to get a couple years ago. Of course, the $8,000 tax credit is pretty nice too!

Other than that, nothing too exciting with us. I've managed to lose 11 lbs since January, but it should really be more than that. I have to get back to kicking my own booty to jump start weight loss again.

Promise to blog again soon!
