I found the best chocolate bars in Coles the other day.  There were several varieties but these ones jumped out at me.  If you can't read the packs, click on the photos and they will enlarge.  I thought they were great - and the chocolate is pretty good too!

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.

Soda Stream :D :D :D Oh how I love ours.. It's so good to just be able to whip up a fizzy drink in 5 seconds rather than having to go out to the shops and spend a fortune.

I loooove the creaming soda. And the raspberry is great too. Josh loves the summer lemon and the x-stream which is like Red bull.

I've seen those choccies - so cute!!

Glad you're having fun with the cooking xo
