Tyler's-at-Grad-school meal of the week 4

Before I get to the meal, I have to share these aMazing Muffins that I made for Mothering Matters :)

Spiced Pumpkin Streusel Muffins
2 boxes spiced cake mix
1 can of pumpkin

streusel (optional):
1/4 c sugar
a few shakes of cinnamon
1/4 c flour
1/4 stick butter

you could also add some type of choc chip, vanilla chip (YUMMMMY!) to give it a little boost of flavor!

A hint I learned was that how the batter looks is how the muffins turn out- they don't plump much either- so smooth out the top!!

Here's a secret...
These muffins are weight watchers (don't tell! they don't tast like it!!)

this recipe makes 4 dozen and costs $4.00 that's about $.10 cents a muffin!

Today's meal while Tyler's done is JUST delicious. So far i'm 4 for 4 for loving the recipes i'm trying! ha!

Blue cheese pepper and zucchini salad.

1/2 cup lettuce
handful of croutons
1 T blue cheese sprinkles
1 T diced peppers (grilled)
1/2 diced zucchini (grilled)
ranch dressing
shredded chicken
1/2 piece of turkey bacon
salt and pepper to taste

SO good!!
