Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

Well Allegra made dinner tonight with very little help from me. This is going to be fabulous. She whipped up a yummy taco salad and some rocky road candy for dessert. The dessert was so easy it was crazy but so good I had three pieces. Can't wait for tomorrow so I can have a reason to eat some more.
Rocky Road Candy

2 8oz bars of milk chocoalte
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts.

line and 8 x 8 x 2 baking pan with foil. Butter foil and set aside. In a medium saucepan melt chocolate on low, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in marshmallows and nuts. Spread in pan and chill for at least an hour. Use foil to lift candy out of pan and cut into 36 pieces.

I have got to try that - and maybe have a kid make it! I'm loving your blog. I too have 6 in my family but my budget is $75 a week. You have given me some great ideas! We tried the brown rice and lentil casserole last week and loved it.

Keep up the good work!

I can't wait until my kids are old enough to cook dinner with little or no help from me! I'm jealous.

I am so sad! Someone posted about making tortillas on your recipe swap last week (or was it the week before?) and I just realized Mr. Linky only lets you display one post with links! Bummer.
I do enjoy checking out the recipe links everyone submits. So cool to see everyone's cooking!

Good News! They aren't visible but they are still there. Go to the end of the post and it says "To see the links click here". Then just click on it and a window pops up with the links.

I make the treats at Christmas time but I use the colored mini marshmallows. I then call them "Stained Glass Windows"
