Soul searching...

With everything going on in the world currently, it has made me stop and examine my life and start asking myself the tough questions.  I got to tell you, I am stuck on this one.  Am I, or am I not a bumper sticker person?  I have spent way more time than I would like to admit to searching the internet for the right bumper sticker to express my take on things.  The searching left me even more disheartened by the state of things...  I finally gave up on finding the perfect smart and funny sloan and went down to our local political party headquarters, made my $2 donation, and walked away with the generic party sticker.  I can't make myself stick it to my bumper.  I entertain myself while driving by making fun of bumper sticker people.  I like to retort all their sayings with my own in your face comebacks from the privacy of my own car.  In general, they tend to fall into two categories, one bumper sticker people (note to those people:  Kerry/Edwards are no longer in the running) and plaster the whole back-side of their car with bumper stickers people.  Getting behind the right person (usually a left person) can bring a whole commutes worth of laughs.  So, I don't know if I can set myself up to be the subject of other drivers private jokes.  Even worse, just think what could happen if I ended up in front of one of those plastered people... So until I can answer this question, I guess my bumper sticker make a statement from my glove box.

What's for dinner??? Shrimp and Grits!!!

Shrimp and Grits Casserole from Cooking Light
We tried this new recipe from cooking light this weekend.  It is a southern favorite and only 8 points per serving.  We also tried the tomato salad that is part of the menu for this dish.  That was very tasty!!! Added bonus, this was ready to eat in less than 45 minutes (25 minutes of bake time) including the sides!!!
