Now for the food ha I know some people are waiting for this part. Tonight for dinner I made myself spinach manicotti and grilled chicken with mustard-tarragon sauce. Frank loved it!! I tried the sauce and it was pretty good. In the sauce she calls for sugar, but I decided to leave it out I didn't think Frank needed sugar with his dinner.

I've been wanting to try a healthy cheesecake. I found a few recipes in the south beach diet cookbook. Well the other day I finally made the dessert.... and it's something that should stay unhealthy! It wasn't very good at all. I ended up just throwing the whole thing away. Sad times. Now I want to try making a good-unhealthy cheesecake. I have something saved for the week of Halloween =]
I found this recipe bow tie pasta with cherry tomatoes, capers and basil at cookinglight.com. I left out the cherry tomatoes since Frank doesn't like tomatoes and I don't care for cherry tomatoes, and I left out the capers since I didn't have any. This would have been really good if we left out the red pepper... or used just a dash, because it was hot!!! Neither of us could eat it. I really want to try it again since it had potential. It was also super easy and hardly any dirty dishes to make it, I like that part!

MMMHHHHH this was good!! I love cooking for the seasons, and even though it's in the low 70's here I still wanted to make a chowder. I found this corn and potato chowder here... http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1142037. So good!!
