Menu Plan Monday 4/11 ~ 4/18 and a Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Well, last week I didn’t do a menu plan and our week was messed up because of it. However, I am very happy to say that we only ate out once! Our meals consisted of a lot of quick fix meals and leftovers. Sometimes that is okay but, I much prefer to have a game plan for the week when it comes to meals. It is just a nice stress reducer for me.

Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes. Stir in strawberries. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.

5.To serve, cut dessert into squares; place on individual dessert plates. Spoon sauce over each serving. Store in refrigerator.

The awesome folks at Yoplait through MyBlogSpark are offering one of my readers a fun prize pack!

Have you tried the Yoplait Greek yet? If you haven’t, your in for a treat!

strawberry Can you believe they have come up with a creamy yummy yogurt with 2 x the protein of regular yogurt yet still 0 fat!

Now with 14 to 17 grams of protein in each cup, the new and improved Yoplait Greek yogurt is a perfect choice for a snack in between meals. Protein is an important component of a healthy diet, serving as a building block for strong muscles and maintaining healthy bones. With twice the protein than regular yogurt** and a thick and creamy texture, the new Yoplait Greek yogurt helps satisfy your hunger - meaning you can feel good about choosing this tasty, fat-free snack. New Yoplait Greek is available in six delicious flavors like Blueberry, Strawberry, and Peach (each with fruit on the bottom) or Honey Vanilla, Key Lime, and Plain - all with zero percent fat and at least 14 grams!

Here is the fun prize pack Yoplait has put together for one of my readers to win:

sponsors 003A small nylon purse for your cell phone, money, ID or keys that can be attacked to your belt or purse, a sticky note pad with a pen that also can be clipped to the grocery cart while shopping. A set of retractable ear plugs and this awesome tote bag. I love this tote because it folds up and snaps into a small enough size to be carried in my purse or even into your pocket. I had one like this that I wore out last summer going to yard sales, outdoor flea markets and festivals.

And you will receive a coupon to try the new Yoplait Greek for free!
