My Little Chef

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on January 26, 2011

My Josh has worn his chef coat every day since we returned home from Hollywood last week. No joke.

He has helped us make dinner every night that we have eaten at home. Seriously.

Josh has informed me (and everyone else) that he’d like to be a chef when he grows up. His goal? To own his own restaurant and have all of his siblings work for him. His parents, on the other hand, will be “too old” to work in his restaurant. Um, okay.


Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! {Quite literally! heehee}

Tyson Chicken Breast Strips Last week, I told you about Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips.

What? You don’t remember?

Well, hop on over and check out what I had to say… I’ll wait.



Okay, what do you think? Would you like to try Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken?

Well, you’re in luck, because I just so happen to have TEN free product coupons to give away. So, here’s what we’ll do ~

Tell me in the comments, before 9pm on May 20th, why YOU would like to try Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken. Is it because of the ease and convenience? Or perhaps you already know and love Tyson chicken, but would like to try their new product? Whatever your reasons, I would love to hear them!

For a second entry, I’d love to hear how YOU would prepare Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken. Would you toss some strips on a salad, like I did? Or, maybe create a delectable stir fry, like my friend Lori did? Be creative!

I will legitimately be able to say “winner, winner, chicken dinner!” when two winners are chosen, from the comments, to each receive FIVE free product coupons!

{Sorry, I couldn’t resist!}

Julia and I made the yummiest meatloaf…

the best meatloaf begins with fresh bread crumbs

mixing the meatloaf with your hands is fun

She was mixing like a pro, even though she thought it was “so gro-o-oss”!

a look of disgust

4 pounds of lean ground beef :: $7.60
other meatloaf ingredients :: $2.45
the look of pure disgust on Julia’s face :: PRICELESS!
