#Bertolli Make It A Meal Challenge

I was recently given the challenge to Make a Weeknight Meal Special with Bertolli Meal Soups. The meal had to be prepared in less then one hour is the catch. I was not worried~as once I see how meaty the soup was I knew that we would just need a few sides to add to the meal.
We choose the Tuscan~Style Beef & Vegetables as that sounded like that best one to us. And~It must be good as it was the last one at the store! What I loved about the Tuscan Soup was that is was first of all,so easy to make and second that it was loaded with veggies! As we love a big hearty~soup and Bertolli didn't disappoint!
Made with Tender beef, mushrooms, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots and celery with bowtie pasta in a rich broth. It was so easy to make too~just add a cup of water to the soup in a pan and it is ready in just minutes. I loved all the veggies as the soup tasted like homemade without all the work!

We had a side salad and rolls that I had in the freezer that I just put in the oven. Figured as long as I had the oven on,I mights as well mix up a German Chocolate Cake too~as doesn't hurt to have dessert on a weeknight.
Our meal took about 45 minutes to prepare thanks to the great start from Berotti. As this soup was awesome! Are you looking for a quick hearty soup? You have to try the Bertolli Meal Soup too.

More about the Bertolli Meal Soups~

A Mile In His Shoes DVD Review and Giveaway 2/10

               ~A Mile in His Shoes~

From the director of "Angels In the Outfield" comes an inspiring story about a special boy with an amazing gift, and the coach who believed. Dean Cain and Luke Schroder star in the gmc movie based on the book "The Legend of Mickey Tussler".

Only a miracle can help baseball coach Arthur 'Murph' Murphy (Dean Cain) and his losing minor league baseball team. As Murph sets out to recruit new talent for the team, he stumbles upon Mickey (Luke Schroder), a young farmer with an incredible pitcher's arm. However, Mickey's parents are reluctant in allowing him to join the team because he has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Murph convinces Mickey's parents that life in the minor league will benefit their unique son, but he doesn't realize just how much his new recruit will help the team s game and, more importantly, their spirit. Based on a true story, Thomas Kinknade Presents: A Mile in His Shoes is an inspirational film that celebrates faith, determination and the power of friendship.

This is a great movie to watch with the whole family. I really liked the  Dean Cain~he played the part of Murph very well. He was so gentle with Mickey and had the others being friends with him in no time. it portrays a great message~That is OK to be different.  I like that it is a true story too. Have the tissues handy~as you are going to need them in this one.

Before dancing she always stretches and eats a healthy snack, like strawberries. When she is not dancing, M.C. likes playing the piano and practicing her cheerleading moves.
She is just the right size for her to carry around and she just loves that she can take the clothes off and put them in the backpack! I am sure that this is going to be a favorite doll for years to come.

Zeiss Lenses and Educational Tools

 I have been wearing glasses since the 7th grade so I know how important it is to get your eyes checked. But there are many things that I didn't know about getting the right pair of glasses. That is why I was so happy to see that Zeiss Lenses has offered these educational tools to help people who wear eye glasses better understand vision correction, eye exams and much more.
The educational materials cover four topics~
Facts to know about vision and lenses
Tips for selecting an eye doctor
Questions to ask at your next eye appointment
Facts to know about age-related vision changes.
Our eyes are our most important sense organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customized visual analysis at your optometrist. Carl Zeiss Vision understands the importance of talking individuality into account when rendering consulting and diagnostic services to people who wear glasses and of course when producing lenses for them.  
Here are some questions to ask on your next visit~
What do you check for in an eye exam besides my prescription?
Can customized eyeglasses improve my vision quality and comfort?
If I have difficulty driving at night, what type of lens is recommended?
I learned a lot at Zeiss Lenses and I am sure you will too.
Did you know that we have to pay closer attention to our eyes after 40? And it is recommended that a eye exam is done yearly.
Check them out here. As we all want Better Vision!

The grand-kids were drinking it and they didn't even know that it was good for them. It is great that they can enjoy the Old Orchard juice and I don't have to worry about all the sugars in it.

Purex and Jockey Coupon Code + Giveaway 1/26

Being a Purex Insider~I have a chance to review new things and share them with you. Recently I was sent a Jockey Sports Bra and Purex Crystals Tropical Splash.
You’re probably wondering, “What’s the relationship between these two products?” 
Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that infuse long-lasting freshness into the fabric fibers of clothing – without harming garments {like liquid softener products that use oils to soften}.
This is especially important for activewear~as liquid softeners can harm active wear’s moisture wicking ability.
I have been wearing the Jockey Sports Bra and washing it with the Purex Crystals.The bra has been holding up very well,as it still looks like new.
About the Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra~
  • moisture-wicking sports bra helps keep you coold & dry.
  • convenient key pocket, take your workouts anywhere!
  • reflective logo at the back
  • breathable mesh panels
  • soft bottom band for comfortable support

The Purex Crystals have made the bra so soft and the scent is awesome! It is so easy to use~just toss the crystals in the washer and let the freshness begin.Nothing else is needed to make all your laundry smell great.

Right now Jockey is offering a discount to my readers too~Check it out to get your exclusive 20% off Jockey coupon right here.
