Introduce New Cuisine with WorldFoods

I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of the product.

In a house with kids, or any house for that matter, we tend to fall into a cooking rut. It’s the same thing all the time. I love introducing new foods to Charlie and WorldFoods definitely makes that happen!

The idea of cooking up some new Fusion and Asian dishes seems super scary to me, but the WorldFoods sauces and marinades give me the confidence to serve up new options.

For an easy dinner, I browned some lean beef bites (a little over half a pound) in about a Tbsp of oil. After they were mostly cooked, I just poured in the jar of Thai Ginger Lemon Grass Stir-Fry Sauce and finished cooking for about 15 minutes.

Wordless Wednesday

My sister was visiting from Kentucky last week. She returned home late Sunday evening, but we had to take a few pictures before she left!

Deborah took a picture of Owen and I snoozing before dinner. It was a long week!

Consign with Just Between Friends

I will be receiving a gift certificate to shop the sale and share with you all about Just Between Friends, but my love of consignment shopping and selling is all my own.

Driving around on a weekend right now, you see plenty of yard sales. I tried going to a few this past weekend and failed miserably. Like anyone that has children, we have a ton of things that are outgrown or simply not used anymore. I’d love to plan our own yard sale, but it’s really too much work for what I get out of it. That’s why I was so excited to find out about Just Between Friends of Middletown/Dover. They have seasonal sales where everyone can buy and sell gently used children’s items and maternity clothes.

Win Your Back to School List & Help Teachers

Thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring this post, but my love for supporting teachers is all my own.

I can’t believe it’s already time to start Back to School shopping! For us, Charlie is starting pre-school this year. I’m honestly not sure if we have to do any back to school shopping for him or not yet, but I’m sure we’ll find out at our meeting next month.

Win your back to school List

I do remember shopping when I was younger and we had to have all the Lisa Frank supplies. Remember them? Then as we got into high school, we were required to have that really expensive calculator. You know which one I’m talking about. I remember my father used his Dremel tool to etch my name into the back. If you lost that thing, big trouble!

Parents have to spend a lot of money getting their kids all the gear they need (and some they just want) for back to school. Great Clips is giving you the chance to win your back to school checklist! To enter, just upload a picture of your school supplies list to the #GREATLIST contest for your chance to win your entire list! There’s a new winner every day and prizes are shipped right to your front door. For complete details, please visit the #GREATLIST contest page.

If you win, not only will you save money by receiving your back to school supplies for free, but you won’t have to drag the kids out to the crowds for back to school shopping!
