Menu Madness and Cookies 'N' Cream Cupcakes

Hi All!   I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We spent the weekend at home relaxing and watching  General Conference.  Such a great time of the year! 
 Even though it was FA-REEZING and there were some snow flurries...and my poor toes were so cold!

Did I ever mention how I DO NOT LIKE TO BE COLD!!!

Yep, It's true, Do not like it at all, but I DO love my trusty ole' space heater sure can get my tootsies all warm an toasty!  LOVE IT!

Today is...."Monday Menu Madness," I decided this week I would take a couple meals off my menu and do some tutorials on them... I'm excited for the three that I have chosen. 
They are super easy AND super Yummy!  Ooh...I can't wait! is the menu:

                  Monday: Kahua Luau Soup      Tutorial
Tuesday:  Sun dried Tomato Calzones
Wednesday:  Chicken Divan
        Thursday:  Leftovers +  Homemade Oreos     Tutorial
                      Friday:  A Really Good Zucchini Casserole    Tutorial
                                 Saturday:  Hobo Dinners                            
Sunday:  Taco Soup
A.N.D because I LOVE YA..I'm going to share a Super Easy one right now!


This is all you need!
-Cake Mix 
-Oreo cookies
                    Make the cupcake batter according to what the box calls for... (I use milk instead of water
My Sweet Mother-in-Law taught me really make all the difference no more water in our cakes!) Crush the Oreo cookies and mix all but three cookies into the  cupcake batter, then bake @ 350 degrees for 18 minutes! 

Wait Patiently for them to cool down and FROST! 
(I snipped the corner of a baggie off, filled it with frosting then topped the cupcakes)
Sprinkle with some crushed Oreos and there you have it ...

See...I told you... Easy Peasy and Oh so yummy!
