This weekend we went and bought a Soda Stream. I spend an absolute fortune on fizzy drinks - specifically Diet Coke and Pepsi Max. They are absolutely terrible for me, but I have never had any luck removing them from my diet. I go okay with substituting the caffeine for tea, but I think I am also addicted to the bubbles. And I really don't like Soda Water.
It was cheaper than I expected. We got the Soda Stream Unit that came with 2 bottles and the CO2 cartridge, as well as a couple of extra bottles and some flavours. Ross got Creamy Soda and Cola, and I got sugar free Cola, and sugar free Rasberry & Cranberry. They are all delicious. And I haven't missed my Pepsi Max at all yet!
I also made another recipe on the weekend. Snow Pea & Couscous Salad with Feta and Mint Pesto.
This was one of the recipes that was demonstrated at our cooking class on Monday night. It turned out really well. I have never made Couscous before, and I have never made pesto before, but they both turned out really well and tasted great. I took it to a pot luck dinner last night along with my Mushroom Risotto, and they all went down really well.
