Got PIzza? You will!

Raise your hand if you have heard of Dr. Oetker's Ristorante Pizza?
Raise your other hand if you want to try it because you've never had it or you've had it & you liked it?

Let me tell you all, I had this pizza last year and I really liked it.
Recently I was fortunate enough to get to try it again, the plain & the vegetable.

It was tres yummy.

Sadly, the pizza's arrived broken.
They were packed in a cooler, in a box, with dry ice.
Working for a company that ships all. day. long. I know that good packing material is a must.
So let's chalk that little breakage up to a new guy in their shipping department.

The breakage did not effect the taste at all.

I baked the plain in the over.
425 degrees.
12 minutes.
While it's suggested you just place on the rack, I used a pizza screen.

The crust was crisp.
Mozarella just gooey enough.
As for the sauce....ah, muah, deliciouso!

Tonight I broke out the veggie pizza.
My little guy even asked for a piece & declared "This is good!"
He's 4 and not known for his terrific palate.

So while the pizza arrived broken, I give it 2 thumbs up in taste, cookability (totally a word...I just invented it) and size.  They are big enough for one person to eat or share.  I won't tell you what that I ate both of them.  Alright, fine, I did...I was really hungry!

Also Dr. Oetker's Pizza is easy on the food budget.
Matter of fact, I currently have a coupon for $1.00 off of one in my coupon clutch that I cut out of the paper last month.
It goes on sale in my area for $1.99 often.

So who'd like to try some?

Thanks to our friends at The Motherhood I have been given a gift bag to give to one of my fabulous readers.


It consists of:
A pizza cutter
Cooler bag
Some coupons!

As of right now the giveaway is only open to those in the US & specifically in the NorthEast where Dr. Oetker's is large & in charge.

Flash Friday Giveaway!!!

Boys & Girls.
Readers & Lurkers.
I have a Flash Friday Giveaway for you.

Thanks to the fabulous people at SheSpeaks I have been able to try Hormel Complete Kids Meals.

Let me tell you.
These are pretty yummy.

I actually tried one last night.  Yes me, not Cheeks.  He will be trying the other flavors.  I tried Beef Ravioli.  It was the perfect size for a small snack & these meals are the perfect size for Cheeks for lunch.  Excellent too since I can throw it in his lunch bag to take to daycare.

The taste of the sauce was good.  A little much on the sauce BUT I am a girl who subscribes to the theory that a little bit will do ya. 

So in my kit that SheSpeaks sent they included 2 "FREE" coupons for Hormel Complete Kids Meals.  They said I could hand them out to family and friends. 

I chose to have a little giveaway to all my friends on the bloggeroo!

This giveaway will end Monday, April 11th at 8pm est.

What do I have to do? you ask.

Take a gander:

Mandatory entry:

Goal For It

Have goals?
Need behavior charts for the little ones?
Chore charts for the older ones? Or even better, for yourself?

I know I need one of all that I mentioned, especially the behavior chart for Cheeks! Oy, the child is going to make me start to drink some days.

Anyway, there is this awesome site GoalForIt.  Go 'head, click it.  You know you want to & lemme tell you, you want to. 

Cheeks has some behavioral issues and at GoalForIt you can customize your own behavior charts.
For free.
I said free and you know the saying, if it's free it's for me!

I totally fell in love with this site.
The behavior charts are helping Cheeks learn to keep his behavior in check & each week I can modify the chart if need be.  Add or delete what I want him to work on.  I can even pick the title border I'd like to have at the top (we chose race cars...thanks for our family driving race cars, someone is a little obsessed.)

Plus they have other charts that you can print out & customize.

Definitely check it out.

Let me know how you like it!
