Free Small Coffee at McDonald's (Nov 15th-28th)


I consider myself a coffee snob (and by snob I mean I only go to Tim Horton's for my coffee in a paper cup. lol), but after trying the McDonald's coffee today, I have to say it's really really good!

Starting today and until November 28th, McDonalds is giving away free coffee!

So run to McDonalds and get your free small coffee (no purchase necessary).

My little girl is 10

Today H., officially hits her double digits birthday.


You are a fighter.
You were fighting, even before you were born.
No matter, what illness or struggle you have been handed
you have managed to come out stronger.
Only when you are in serious pain do you ever complain!

(trying to be cross-eyed)

You are witty and hilarious.
Much to my chagrin at times, you see the laughter in every situation.
I remember walking in to your hospital room for one of your early stays,
and you were excited that the nurse "had made your arm bigger
with a big bandage and needle in your hand".

You are creative and intelligent.
For nine years you managed to disguise that you were hearing impared.
(I'm still amazed by this fact)

You are my little helper.
When the cook books come out, you are right beside me.
(especially the cookie ones :-))
(Now if only you could keep your room clean)

You are my smiling face.
Through all of your health struggles, hospital stays and surgeries,
you always have a smile on your face.

You are my little fashionista.
Since the age of 4 you have had your own fashion sense
 when you declared that you would no longer wear blue, green,
grey or black because they were boys colours.
( are going to be an expensive teenager)
( ...and yes, 10 year old girls can still wear pink & purple)

You are my beautiful 10 year old little girl.

Love you forever H.!!

My Big Girl Is 12!!

I can't believe how time has flown.

Seems like only yesterday I was waddling around wearing Birkenstocks slip-ons cause my feet were too swolen for anythin else.

S., you make it sooo easy to be your mom!

Your kind, generous, thoughtful, funny, and smart.

I love the way you get excited about the smallest things.

I love that you are innocent and all grown up all in one.

I love that you care about your family, and your pets.

I love that although you are my Big Girl you will always be my baby girl!.

Love you to the moon and back!

Shakleeize your Home this Holiday Season

Hello!! How are you doing?  It's a lovely crisp fall day around these parts.

Today I wanted to share with you one of the very best choices I ever made for my home and my family.

Get Clean<sup>®</sup> Healthy Home Pack

The Get Clean® Healthy Home Pack contains all the products you need to start making your home cleaner for your family and the planet. With cleaning choices that are SAFE, POWERFUL, GREEN, and SMART, Get Clean is the safe alternative to traditional household cleaning products.

The following testimonial came from Kathy who purchased the Get Clean® Healthy Home Pack because she wanted to Shakleeize her home because her children had different illnesses and skin sensitivities.

She has one married son that has now moved out, one twenty something son still living at home and a one teenage daughter.

This is what Kathy had to say about the Scour Off.

"I have been meaning to email you about the Shaklee.  I am very happy with it, especially that scrub stuff.  You should have seen how bad Tyler's tub was.  First I think there was still release on it from when Josh was there and nobody cleaned it properly and then they did the tile and it was a mess.  I was dreading cleaning it.  I got my great niece to clean it.  Looked like crap.  I got Sonia to clean it.  It looked like crap and then I got Manuel to scrape the concrete and I took that scrub and it worked so easy and so good.  Made the tub look like new.  Then I always hate cleaning the top of the cook top.  Wow that stuff just makes it so easy. "

Unfortunately she didn't send me any pictures of the Shaklee products hard at work. :(
However, I showed you here how it cleaned my nasty oven. You can see the before and after pictures.

Don't forget that if you are a Canadian reader for the month of November if you purchased the Get Clean Pack or combination of products you will get your membership for FREE.  That's a savings of $19.95!!
Get Clean<sup>®</sup> Healthy Home Pack

The Get Clean Healthy Home Pack contains:

Basic H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate, 473 mL (1).
Basic H2® Organic Super Cleaning Wipes, 35 wipes (1).
Scour Off™ Heavy-Duty Paste, 255 g (1).

Menu Plan Monday: Week of November 1

{ Reminder to Canadian Readers: Join Shaklee for FREE in November! }

Happy November!

I am going to try really really hard this month to empty out my deep freezer and fridge freezer this month!

Why you ask?

Well, I like to start the New Year off fresh!
(plus I need to save money for Christmas :) by lowering my grocery bill)

So this is what I have planned this week.
I'm linking up here

----->  (I will need to make my own Breadcrumbs)

Tuesday: Pasta & Home made Beefy Sauce (recipe below)

Wednesday:  Pasta e Fagioli Soup
------> (will use the Home made sauce to subsitute for the steps 1-3 and adding broth last too)

Thursday: S.'s 12 th Birthday dinner - Sheppard's Pie (her request)!

Friday:  Still working on Free Pizza from freezer

Saturday: leftovers

Sunday:  Roast beef

My Homemade Beefy Pasta Sauce

Splash of Olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves minced
1 onion diced
1- 2 pounds of ground beef
1-2 carrots grated
1 red pepper sliced
2 - 3 cans of ground/crushed tomatoes
1-2 leaves of fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil.
1-2 bay leaves
Salt & pepper to taste
(I sometimes sprinkle hot pepper flakes for extra oooomph)


  • heat olive oil, add onion and garlic until browned.
  • add the ground beef and brown
  • add the carrots and red pepper slices and cook for a couple of minutes pour in crushed tomatoes add spices and boil over low heat for about 30 minutes or so .
I usually fill up 2 to 3 of my 2 cup containers for the freezer and leave about 1 cups worth in the pot. And then I make pasta in a separate pot and when cooked and drained, I dump it right into the pot of sauce and mix it around. It soaks up all the sauce. And then sprinkle parmesan cheese right into the pot and mix it.

Let me know what you are making this week.
