So, in order to thank anyone who's still reading this I decided I should do a give away! This past Christmas we did a gift exchange with Joseph's family. It's one where you get assigned a Secret Santa and than buy for just that person. Well, there was a bit of a mix up and I ended up with gifts from two people and Joseph didn't get anything :(
On top of that one of the gifts I received was a duplicate. I was planning on returning it and using the money to buy Joseph a book he wanted but time got to us and we missed the 90-day window to return it. So I'm sure you've guessed that the extra book is what I'm giving away and you're dying to know what it is, right? I hope so!
This book helped out a lot when I was freezing meals for the days/weeks after Ethan was born. It's called Don't Panic, Dinner's in the Freezer and it's filled with useful tips on how to meal plan and stock your freezer full of yummy dinners for the week/month. This worked out soo well for us! We didn't have to make our own dinner for 5 weeks! Yeah, we did eat out but we mostly ate in (and had left overs) so it worked out great.
So if you're interested leave a comment on my blog letting me know what you want to see from me now that I have a bit more time (during Ethan's naps) to blog about what I cook. Oh, and just an update... I'm now back on Weight Watchers too so I'll start to incorporate point values in my recipes when I get a chance!
I'll randomly choose a winner on Friday, April 24th using the random number generator on Random.org.
Oh, and I found a wonderful and simple lunch "recipe" while at Trader Joes a few weeks ago and fell in love with it! So tasty. I changed things around and used Havarti instead of the Swiss TJs uses but it's still as yummy!

Grilled Ham & Cheese
- 2 slices bread of choice (I used whole wheat)
- 1 slice ham
- 1-2 slices cheese (I used havarti, TJs uses swiss)
- 1 tablespoon cranberry apple butter
- 1-2 sprays non-stick cooking spray
Spray the skillet with non-stick cooking spray and put sandwich in pan. Get a heavy pan or flat pan lid and smoosh sandwich down for about 30 seconds to 1 minute or until golden brown. Flip sandwich over and repeat until golden brown and cheese is oozing.
Plate and enjoy!
