Egg Noodle Soup

I made some egg noodle soup (without eggs.. wink) a couple of days ago because it was raining so hard and cold.  We ate it with  pork ribs BBQ.  Before I put the pork in the oven, I boiled it first then I used the broth to cook the noodles.  It was a yummy dinner for the four of us.

Newman's Own Organic and a Giveaway

I only knew Paul Newman from the movie that my husband and I watched recently. He starred the movie called "The Color of Money" with Tom Cruise, I love that movie! Anyhow, I did not know that Paul Newman has a company called Newman's Own. In 1993, they added a division called Newman's Own Organic which is managed by his daughter Nell Newman and her partner Peter Meehan. Then they became a separate company in 2001. 

I am so grateful that I was able to have the opportunity to try some of the Newman's Own Organic (NOO) products. They sent me a box full of goodies and man oh man,  the two sweet tooth at home were delighted!  NOO is also giving me a chance to host a giveaway  for US bloggers.  With the selections that I will show you below, you can pick four of them that you like and state it in your comment and whoever wins, the four products that you picked will be delivered in your front door.
This  big box was waiting for  me at the front door the other day.
Creme filled mint chocolate cookies, licorice ( I have four of these).
Double chocolate chip cookies and Vanilla alphabet cookies.  These two are my son's favorite.
A bag of prunes, cookies, and figs.
Pretzels and pretzel rods.
Pop corn and another  bag of  cookies.
My husband love this hermits!

My daughter open all these mints up right away.  She tasted all of them  and she like the wintergreen mints the most.
These are also my husband's favorite, they're individual chocolate cups.  My son is off limits to some of these one because he is allergic to peanuts.
The four of us love these chocolate sthe most!

Crowders Garden Center

My husband and I went to a garden center  in our area and I found some indoor plants on sale so I grabbed some that  I like.  I did not have those plants before so I   spent  few hours in exploring different  garden centers online.  One of the online garden center that I found is the crowders garden centre.  They carries different kinds of  product for gardening , tools, garden furniture and barbecue, kitchenware, and gift items.    I love gardening and  whenever I like a plant and I don't know about it, I look it up online to know how to care for it.  Glad there are  companies like Crowders.

Tomato Produce


Have you ever watched the videos that are available at Gardenieres about gardening?  I just   found this  website today and I  really like the topics and tips that  gardening enthusiasts are sharing.  Gardenieres is powered by The Home Depot and  Miracle Gro and being hosted  by William Moss and other  gardener  enthusiasts  from different states.  One of the videos that  I watched is the tomato growing tips with William Moss and I totally agree of what he has to say.  Last year, my tomatoes were all over the place because I did not  buy any  support system for them but this year I decided  to buy some stakes to put around them and I did not have any problem picking my  produce.  The Expand and Grow from  Miracle Gro that I  mixed up with the soil helped  the tomatoes   grow healthier and   gave me so many fruits.  I canned  so many tomatoes this year than I ever did for the last years.  I am glad that there are websites like Gardenieres  that  shared ideas and information about gardening because I am learning a lot.

Samsung Galaxy

I took this photo with my Samsung Galaxy phone.  Not bad for a phone  sot isn't it?

On the other note, I came a across one blog that says "2012: Not just an election but a restraining order."   We also watched the debate last night between Gov. Mitt Romney  and Pres. Obama.   What do you think of the third debate?

What's for Lunch?

 I decided to volunteer as lunch lady  this year because both of my Burritos  are in school already.  I couldn't do it last year  because of my son.  I only do it  on Wednesdays and sometimes  cover for someone if  an assigned Mom can't do it.
 Some parents who can't help  in serving lunch can also   volunteer as  a baker  of dessert.  They bake brownies or buy cupcakes in the store and send it to the school.
When we have extra time, we do  crossword puzzles.
Have a great week ahead everyone!
