I Caught Santa!

Imagine the look of wonder and surprise when a child receives a photo of Santa caught in the act in his or her very own home. is a unique website that helps visitors create those memorable keepsake photos.

In three simple steps anyone can upload a holiday photo, add Santa Claus and print it as proof… or share it via Facebook and Twitter. Last-minute shoppers can purchase Gift Cards and eGift Certificates for loved ones with children, making a great gift idea even if you don't have kids yourself.

I sure wish that this had been available when my kids were young!  What a great idea!

Merry Christmas!

Green Giant to the Rescue!

Mealtime has always been hectic at my house!  I have two picky eaters and many times it seems as if I am cooking two entire meals.  Both of my sons love Mac and Cheese, so I decided to give the New Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables,  Macaroni and Cheese Sauce with Broccoli a try.  Much to my delight, it was a huge hit and everyone loved it! 

I loved that it is quick and easy to prepare!  It is perfect for busy families with limited time to cook.  The fact that the Mac and Cheese also has broccoli added makes it a win-win situation.  The kids get the yummy mac and cheese that they want and they eat a vegetable as well.

Making meal time easier than ever, Green Giant has introduced vegetables with pasta and savory sauces to their already convenient and tasty line-up of Valley Fresh Steamers frozen mixes.

The new Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables with Pasta varieties include:
  • Macaroni and Cheese Sauce with Broccoli - classic elbow pasta and broccoli in a mouth watering cheese sauce
  • Pasta and Vegetables with Alfredo Sauce – delicious corkscrew pasta with carrots and broccoli in a savory Alfredo sauce

I have a prize pack from Green Giant for one of my lucky readers so that you can also try one of the new Valley Fresh Steamers with Pasta. The prize pack will include the following:

  • 2 Green Giant placemats
  • Broccoli stress reliever
  • 32 oz. serving bowl
