As you well know, if you have been around here, there is always some cooking and baking going on in our home! While I cook and bake, almost, everything from scratch, I’ll have to admit that sometimes our choices of ingredients are not always as healthy as they should be.
I have tried to get motivated to change some things, but had not gotten around to it. Then I got a little kick in the pants from I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter!®, when they sent me an awesome box full of goodies to makeover our fridge!
I will have to give the makeover credit to Doug, my husband, he actually does a better job with keeping the fridge clean and straight than I do. It seems like I am always in such a hurry, I just kind of stick things in quickly and don’t pay much attention to how long the food is in the fridge. I know…not so good. Doug took some pictures of his fridge makeover to share with you…
Now, while our fridge makeover is far from perfect, it is definitely an improvement! With the Holidays quickly approaching, every little change we can make will help. I saw these Ultimate Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies on the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter website, and I just had to share. I think they would make a yummy addition to any Holiday get-together.
