July 24, 2009

I have so many thoughts and ideas running through my mind each day, I thought it would be a good idea to keep them all in one place. So, starting today I will try to "digest" all the information that comes across my desk and into my brain Hopefully, others will find some ideas each day that they can use as well.

To get started today:
Talking About.....
From Shopping, The Musical always comes some great deals:

Walmart is currently featuring Chef Boyardee pasta products for $1. If you go to the site and printed off a $1 Chef Boyardee coupon making it free!"

Blue Bunny Ice Cream so click here to select which $1 off coupon you would like. Unfortunately, you can only print one off of your computer. You need to sign up for a coupon, but Blue Bunny is kind of expensive so signing up will help a bit.

A free sample of Airborne. Just click the "Free Sample" section. And if you don't have a friend you want to send one to, that's OK. Just put in any name or email cause once you fill it out, they'll just ask for mailing address.

Free Gain with Frabeze sample:


I don't recommend asking for what you can have, or even for what you can give, nearly as much as I recommend asking for what else you can know.

Because there is always more you can know, Stacy, and knowing it will radically increase all you can have and give.

Did you just ask something?

From Hungry

Hungry Girl has a wonderful new cookbook out called 200 for Under 200 meaning 200 recipes that are under 200 calories. Some interesting ideas are included as well as the following:

PER SERVING (half of recipe, about 1 1/2 cups): 206 calories, 2.25g fat, 470mg sodium, 9.5g carbs, 1.75g fiber, 4g sugars, 24g protein -- POINTS® value 4*

This recipe is fast and FANTASTIC. Quite possibly our best shrimp recipe to date. (And by that we mean it's our favorite so far. We don't want to buy it daisies and take it to a movie.)

8 oz. Raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
3 tbsp. (1 1/2 oz. Or 1 shot) tequila
2 tbsp. Lime juice
2 tbsp. Coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp. Minced garlic
1/4 tsp. Chili powder
1/4 tsp. Salt

Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until onion is slightly translucent, about 3 minutes. Carefully add tequila to the pan and stir. (It's unlikely it will flare up, but be cautious, just in case.) Cover the pan and let simmer for 5 minutes.

Add shrimp and cook for about 3 minutes, until shrimp are nearly opaque. Add tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, chili powder, and salt, and mix well. Stirring occasionally, cook until tomatoes have softened and shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!

While watching The VIEW today (and on my treadmill), the girls were talking about these two sites: and both making "under garments" that suck and hold you in. Spanx, though, is now making outer clothing as well. Also Spiegel's FX section has some really nice dresses that have the underpinning as well.

Teacher extraordinaire Ken Shelton shared this today. Very scary if you're a teacher...parent...administrator and more importantly student:,0,6767455.story

I'm sure this blog will be updated throughout the day, but wanted to get it started. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Sometimes having a blog is a great way to dump all the wonderful things in your head. Congrats on getting started. I get a ton of good ideas from plurk, so don't leave us there!!
