Remember Fun Dips?

Aren't there just some candies and toys that take you directly back to your childhood? Anyway, dd got Fun Dip lip gloss and scented nail polish from my TO sister for her bday. Might have to try out some of the nail polish later for further childhood flashback. ( when she's in bed, of course. ) ;)

Anyway, I tried a couple of other CL recipes at the party. I did the Avocado Salsa ( that I shared before. Still love it. The bowl goes fast- it's just the right amount of hot and flavourful. ) for an appetizer with tortilla chips. I did two BBQ selections from my Cooking Light Complete binder- so people could have a choice, or have both: Chipotle-Marinated Pork Chops with Chimichurri Sauce and Mediterranean Chicken and Vegetable Kebabs. They both got favourable reviews. The pork chops were on the spicy side- marinated in the chipotle. I really liked them. I only had a bit of the chicken. I'd never bbq'd fennel bulb before. I like to try new veggies, since I need more veggies in my life.

I went to boot camp today- even though still hung over with tiredness from the weekend slumber party. It was an intense session. Our warmup (15 mins?) was all different maneovers with the skipping rope- using it the standard way, then leaping over it in a variety drills. Next we did a full room circuit of muscle and cardio- 15 stations or so? It felt be done. ;)

boot camp sounds so challenging but so much fun! I prefer healthy dippers over the candy ones any day ;)

lol. yes. Not too many sugary treats being dipped right now. (though the nice thing about ww is that you COULD have a sugary treat and just count it, eh?)

Hmm, I actually don't remember Fun Dips. However, I bought some scented markers for my kids and I just love those fakey smells--really reminds me of my own childhood.
