Everyone Loves a Giveaway!!!

Almost as much as I love the Ergo Baby Carrier. I have several baby carriers, but my Ergo is by far my most versatile. I can wear my toddler or my infant...even when she was a newborn. In fact, I wore baby E in the Ergo for three straight days at Disney World. She even rode the rides in it!

My friend over at Once Upon a Baby is hosting an awesome lucky momma will score an Ergo carrier! So scoot on over and enter...I know I did!

Here's a quick recipe tip: Substitute an equal amount of unsweetened organic applesauce for oil when baking. You'll want to reduce the amount of sugar too, as apples are naturally sweet. The result? Less fat, less refined sugar, a serving of fruit. Good Stuff!

Bargain Alert!

I found Flip and Tumble reusable bags on clearance at Caribou Coffee...just $4.50 each! I got three. :P

I love these bags. They have a flat bottom, unlike my Chico Bags, and a long enough strap to fling over a shoulder. I want more!

ETA: I should have been more clear...these were in my local Caribou Coffee store.

Blog Changes

You've no doubt noticed the new look of the blog. It's still a work in progress! One of the things I've added is a list of labels to make post-hunting easier if you're looking to read about a certain topic. I'm still going back and tagging all of my old posts. It's quite a task, but I should be finished in a couple of days. I hope you like this feature!

Farmers' Co-Op

I finally joined a local Farmer's Co-Op. I've been wanting to join for over a year, but didn't pull the trigger. I got an email last week offering $5 off the annual membership seemed like a sign. I'm really excited about it for several reasons.

1. The Goods

  • Locally grown organic produce
  • Eggs from happy chickens (until I get my own!)
  • Honey, jams and more
  • Locally raised, grass-fed meat
  • Artisan breads and cheeses
2. All of the above delivered to a central location for pick up

3. "The Farmers' Pick"
  • This is a pre-selected assortment of produce, based on current crops. It costs less than picking and choosing your own produce, but perhaps my favorite thing about it is that I don't pick. I'm excited about the prospect of a box of mystery fruits and veggies. I can't wait to see what I get and plan recipes accordingly. I think it will make all of us more adventurous in our eating. We've paid for the whole box, so I'll find ways to serve every healthy morsel!
The Farmers' Pick this week includes Lettuces, Florida Citrus, Swiss Chard, Sweet Potatoes, Snap Peas, Avocados, and Popcorn! I have three days to plan my menu before I pick up my box of goodies on Tuesday...Fun!
