    Hello Kitty 12" Bicycle



    New Hello Kitty 12" Bicycle -

    Did you see the new Hello Kitty 12" inch Bicycle being sold at Walmart for $69.99? The bicycle is for girls ages 2 to 5 years old. I know my daughter will not forget to add this one to her Christmas list. lol Yes, assembly is required by the customer. :)

    I did not know that they sold Schwinn's. I remember when I was a little girl that the Huffy Bicycle was one of the best made bikes. Walmart still has Barbie, Dora, Disney and Kai-Lan.  For the boys they have character bikes like Cars, Elmo - Sesame Street, G.I. Joe, Go Diego Go!, Spiderman and Transformers. I don't know about you, but I find Walmart prices hard to beat.

    Thanks,

    Time: September 29, 2009 from 4pm to 4:30pm
    Location: Online at www.blogtalkradio.com/faithwords
    Organized By: Valerie Russo

    Event Description:
    Call-in Number: (646) 378-0043 on 9/29/2009 4:00 PM EST
    Send in questions for Joyce: valerie.russo@hbgusa.com

    Joyce Meyer has been in full-time ministry since 1980. She is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than seventy inspirational books. She has also released thousands of audio teachings as well as a complete video library.

    Joyce's ENJOYING EVERYDAY LIFE television and radio programs are broadcast around the world, and she travels extensively conducting conferences in the US and abroad. Joyce and her husband, Dave, are the parents of four grown children and make their home in St. Louis, Missouri. Visit her website at www.joycemeyer.org.

    Joyce Meyer is not satisfied with the status quo. She believes that we each need to become a revolutionary and practice love every day. And if Joyce has her way, the revolution will spread - person by person, house by house, town by town, until the old culture of selfishness and greed gives way to a new culture of concern for others...

    Make-ahead-Meals For Busy Moms by Jane Doiron

    Make-Ahead Meals for Busy MomsMake-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms
    Author: Jane Doiron
    Paperback: 232 pages
    Publisher: Outskirts Press (August 17, 2009)
    ISBN-10: 1432720864
    Value: $17.95

    Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms
    By Jane Doiron

    Are you tired of eating out at all those fast food joints? Well, Jane Doiron, wants to help you learn how to have home cooked meals that are better for our families, without all that stress and fuss.

    As soon as I received, Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms, I flipped through the cookbook and found a wonderful and easy-to-prepare recipe using blueberries. We have a blueberry bush in our backyard and I froze 2 quarts this summer. I couldn’t wait to test a dessert recipe listed on page 59 for Blueberry Squares.



    From Recipes


    My thirteen year old daughter, Tara, helped me get everything together. She even helped with the baking. Since the blueberries were frozen, Jane recommended waiting thirty minutes for them to thaw, that gave us ample time to get everything together and ready for this review. I took pictures to document the recipe. I hope you enjoy them.

    Speaking of pictures, you won’t find any inside Jane’s new cookbook, but that doesn’t take away the beauty of her cookbook. I think it is a plus that the text is large enough that I did not need to wear my reading glasses. You will find “help tips” in the front of her book. There are tips on labeling, freezing, preparing food a day ahead and much more. Many of her tips were very helpful.

    If you would like to learn more about Jane’s new cookbook, visit her blog or the cookbook website today. She has the table of contents and many pictures of the wonderful dishes from her book on her site. I almost forgot to mention that you can now download it on e-book for $12.95.

    Guess what? Jane has generously offered to give one fortunate reader at Loving Heart Designs their own copy of “Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms”. If you are a busy dad, you can sign up too.


    Congratulations to our winner: #49 Booklogged of A Reader's Journal

    Thank you, Jane Doiron for the giveaway. Jane will be awarding the winner a copy of her latest cookbook. This contest will run until September 30th, 2009. The winner will have 48 hrs to reply and send their name and address for shipping. This contest is open to USA and Canada only. Thank you.

    Would you like another chance to win?

    We altered this recipe by adding Hot Sausage instead of regular or mild sausage and omitted the pepper since the sausage was hot.

    Bertolli - Complete Skillet Meals for Two

    From Blogging


    Slow-roasted pork is paired with sauteed pancetta bacon, tender spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and spiral shaped cavatappi pasta that cooks up al dente. A sauce of pure cream, sherry wine, and fragrant garlic completes this sumptuous dish.

    www.Bertolli.com

    My dear husband decided it was more appropriate to buy Bertolli than a weight loss meal. I can enjoy one serving for under 300 calories. This particular dish consists of only 510 calories for 2 servings (255 calories each). I eat one serving at lunch and save the rest for the next time. It is very easy to prepare and only takes 10 minutes in a covered non-stick skillet on medium heat. I found that Roasted Pork & Cavatappi Pasta is very tasteful and filling meal. Yummy.

    Coupon Chief

    My children and I have been shopping with my mother-in-law and she usually gets a discount code added to her receipt at J.C. Penney. She is not computer savvy and just laughed it off by saying, “Oh, I save lots of money already”. Well, she could have saved $25 more if she logged online to redeem that discount code.
