Product Review *two thumbs up* :)

I recently had the opportunity to try out an amazing product called Country Bob's All purpose sauce. The company was kind enough to email me and ask if I would try it out and post a review with my honest opinion of their sauce. I want to add, that we used ONE WHOLE BOTTLE at our meal. I guess that might be overkill but this stuff is so good, Im totally sold and will be back for more..and more..and more.

Along with my two bottles, I was sent a recipe booklet so I tried out one of the meals - meatloaf. I made 6 small loafs and used a bit more sauce than it was actually called for in the mix and then added more sauce on top. It was delicous, moist and there was no leftovers. I also served tater tots and fries since it looked like a great dipping sauce. It sure was! Not too spicy, just the right amount. Not too sweet but definitely more sweetness than the average A1 or supermarket sauce.

Overall, I think everyone should at least check out and see for yourself. The prices are amazing and if my three kids liked this stuff, It gets my two thumbs up FOR SURE!!!

Quick update

To everyone who has been emailing me, Im so sorry I've not updated!! My husband was hit by a drunk driver on the way into work the night of the 16th and my car was completely destroyed. He was lucky, he's doing fine but it really shook me up pretty badly and I haven't had time to respond to everyone (or update this) I'll be back asap!! Merry Christmas and hug your loved ones!!

December Daily - 2nd

Including part of the completed album from day one and day to view larger :)

The cover, first two pages. I have yet to print and add one more photo of Xander and his wish list (the pic from yesterday)

And photos from December 2nd.

Christmas cards round one..

Noah enjoying a piece of nestle tollhouse pie after a long day at school. These pies by the way, are so sinful yet so easy to make. I made two, one for us and one for Luciano's for always being so helpful to us :) Ours is gone already. And by the way, i DO NOT bake and I can make these.

And tonight we rented A Christmas Story for our "family movie night" Yes it's on the 24th for 24 hours but who wants to wait until then?!

December Daily - 1st

Since Im participating in Ali Edwards "december daily" I thought I'd blog a bit about each day as I plan on scrapping it.

Yesterday highlights (and lowlights) were Xander writing his first letter to santa. Geez I hope he comes through and brings him the Lego Agents "jail thing" he wants soooo bad.

We had to go to Walmart (ugh)for our bi-monthly grocery trip. I dread this. Really, because we have two full carts and sometimes more. It was a nightmare. I'll leave it at that. But we only spent 310.00 - that was a good week!

And here is one little holiday "display" in our entryway, still in progress. I have three more boxes of goodies to put out.

random musings

It's snowing today. Um hello?! It's OCTOBER.

I love the new Studio Calico kit for November. I only grabbed one add on and extra papers but it was really hard to resist more. I cannot wait to get it and play. Of course my expertise is totally mediocre compared to the talent on that site and I pale in comparison - hence why you'll never see my layouts posted on here!!! :D

phone ringing...gotta go
