Yup. That's what I bought.
When I said that I was pissed and wanted to go buy some shit, I wasn't referring to items that would actually make me shit. Although from the Instagram picture above, it would appear that that was my sole intention. I mean, really? Fiber One bars AND bananas? Oy...it's going to be a rough night.
Due to the fact that I'm a tad bit salty right now, I'm not going to bore you with the details of today's weigh-in. I lost 0.2 pounds. Hence the reason why I'm pissed and apparently taking natural remedies to rid myself of any extra weight that I may possibly be storing.
I know...I know. Gross.
So now that we have that shit out of the way (yes my friends...total pun intended), let's move on.
I tried out two new recipes for Memorial Day - Macaroni Salad and Mini-Brownie Cupcakes. So...because they were yummy in my tummy, I'd be willing to be that they would be yummy in your tummy too! And not break the points bank - just in case you are tracking those pesky things.
So...without further adieu, here are those recipes for your next mouthwatering side dish and tastebud tantalizing dessert.

Mini Brownie Cupcakes

Prep Time: 7 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
- 21 oz regular brownie dry mix
- 1/2 cup(s) water

And there you have it folks. A party for your mouth.
