It's time for more fun this week as our Spring Break comes to an end. Spring is so great, and gets to be so busy. We spent the weekend with family, watching silly movies and eating...and building our garden.
There are lots of Steal and Deals to be had.
Free Burger at Smash Burger. This was our date night last week and it was AWESOME. Join their club at http://www.smashburger.com/ and they'll send you a coupon via email. You must try this place. Mondays kids eat free with purchase of entree.
Free document shredding and 25 free copies at Staples on April 17.
Free mini Cinnabons on April 17 at local Cinnabons.
Free pretzel on National Pretzel Day, April 26 at Pretzelmakers--you do have to sing a song or dance, but how hard is that???
Marble Slab has free ice cream April 17 to roll out their new seasonal flavors.
Nordstroms has free sample Saturdays, with a new sample each week. Sign up at Nordstroms.com.
I found the best dessert ever here at Our Best Bites. It's so easy and fun to make. The kids can pretty much handle it. It's a Jell-O Fruity Mousse, and it's perfect for Spring. Delicious!
Other Meal Ideas for the week:
Fish tacos- use fish sticks or precooked shrimp; add avocado, lime wedges, salsa, cilantro, coleslaw mix (w/o mayo, just the bagged stuff) and ranch. These are easy
Grilled chipolte chicken with Cuban black beans. S&W has a new variety of beans out--Cuban Black beans and a Chipolte bean. Comes all ready to go. They are about $1 per can, and there's coupons for $1/2. Go to http://www.pinchingyourpennies.com/ to find the insert source of the coupon, or you can google for one.
Chicken cordon-blue sandwiches- I serve these on wheat thin buns, a slice of grilled chicken breast topped with Swiss or provolone and ham. Place under broiler for 3-4 minutes and place on bun. Garnish with veggies.
I am still looking for a good crock pot meal for our busy week.....have a great one!
