Fat Free Icecream??

Somewhere between eating bbqed meats by the pool and crashing at a guy friend's place on saturday, E served me some Dreyers vanilla icecream which i thought tasted pretty darn good.I never liked vanilla icecream much before but having this Dreyers thing completely changed my mind.

At 10pm tonight, I had a huge Dreyers craving so I begged hubby to get me some from walmart.Being a sweet person that he is..he got me this!

Dreyers no sugar added/fat free chocolate fudge icecream(sweetened with splenda)Awww my husband pays attention to what i eat

I got crafty!!(not a food entry but what the heck)

I had always wanted to get a Sanrio Chococat Caddy to organise my kitty's things but it's pretty ridiculously priced over here so i decided to make the toy box myself.

I purchased the Tigger stickers from Dollar Tree last night and just did some arranging on an empty clear box i had laying around.Brushed on clear top coat to waterproof it...VOILA!!Rather decent looking i must say!:D I may jazz it up with some glitter glue but this is it for now.

My dinner for last night was Beef Wonton Soup..

Cept' i didn't wrap it with wonton skins but left it as beef meatballs instead.So intrigued i was by the vietnamese take on the chinese wonton soup i decided to purchase their stock cubes and tried making it for dinner.

Dissolve 2 stock cubes in 1.5 litres of water and add any kinds of meats or veggies you like.Bad pic sorry

My finished product with cabbage, silken tofu, eggs, beef meatballs(exact seasonings as wonton without skin)
