Try It, You’ll Like It: Bertolli’s Premium Pasta Sauce

2008-July-082

Recently, our family had the opportunity to try three new sauces from Bertolli. I must admit I was a little skeptical since we don’t buy canned or jarred pasta sauces. Ever. Normally, they are too sweet for my man who doesn’t like sweet sauces. If sugar or corn syrup are anywhere on the label, it […]

If you were tracking with me last week, you know that I spent four mornings cookin’ up a storm chez moi. This week we’re going to reap the rewards of that. I’m not cooking this week! (OK, I have to heat it up and make side dishes. But, that’s just icing on the cake.) Later […]

It is finished. And I am so glad. Not only do I have a freezer full of meals freeing me from cooking, but I also don’t have to do a lot of shopping over the next 4-5 weeks. Yeah! Don’t get me wrong. I love to shop. Especially groceries. After all, I am the Grocery […]

News Flash

Remember awhile ago I mentioned the Crockpot 365 blog where Stephanie cooks something everyday in her slowcooker? Well, she’s going to be on Rachel Ray today! How fun!

OAMC: Day Two

2008-July-006

Another day, another dinner — or two or ten. Praise the Lord for small (and big) mercies! It was actually very mellow around here, despite my late start. No spilled milk today! I got cookin’ about 10 and wrapped up the morning at 11:45 for lunch and swim lessons. Crockpots simmered while we were gone. […]

I didn’t get quite as much done as I had planned, but that’s okay. Life happens. And I don’t want to be crabby at my kids for the sake of a few “tv dinners.” Twittering it was helpful because it kept me accountable and gave me a record of my timeline. I’m guessing that I […]
