Toddler Thursday

I wanted to get into the swing of things again by adding back Toddler Tuesdays to my blog. Great deals for Toddlers, babies and older kids.

Here are some links to some fantastic deals and specials 

And don't forget the deal a day sites! These are sites that run specials until they are gone each day on different products. Here are a few of my faves from today

On a day like today where the wind is blowing, the rain is falling, it's perfect to be inside shopping online. Christmas is approaching!

sweet treat!

for all you apple lovers!

I love this time of year. I say it time and time again. But apple season here in Minnesota is amazing. And with the season comes all kinds of recipes. Healthy and absolutely not healthy at all. Good for you recipes have gone out the window here with the hubs quitting smoking. And "unfortunately" sometimes I fall victim to his sweet tooth cravings.

Here is tonight's recipe. Don't be afraid of the last ingredient. I was at first but wow!
(this recipe was found on tasty

Apple Dumplings

2 whole Granny Smith Apples
2 cans (8 Oz. Cans) Crescent Rolls
2 sticks Butter
1-1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Cinnamon, To Taste
1 can (12 Oz.) Mountain Dew Soda

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 slices each. Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll. Place in a 9 x 13 buttered pan.
Melt butter, then add sugar and barely stir. Add vanilla, stir, and pour entire mixture over apples. Pour Mountain Dew around the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve with ice cream, and spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.

Perfect recipe for fall!

My favorite season is upon us! The one that keeps me in Minnesota. The colors are amazing this time of year. And we live in a part of this state that would make you wish it was this colorful all year. With these beautiful colors, come the apples, pumpkins, cooler temps, sometimes dreary days that make you want to curl up on the couch, and read a good book. 
So why not a nice warm bowl of soup to go with that book?

Here is a recipe that has been requested by many. I found this recipe a few years ago online and my family loves it. A lot of steps but not a ton of ingredients. 
So enjoy this with your family. Leave a comment if you tried it and love it! or if you would do something different to it.

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
3 chicken bone in chicken breast

when the chicken has cooled a bit remove it from the pot and shred the chicken. Add it back into the pot with the can of diced
tomatos. Allow to simmer while you continue the recipe.

Serve with parm cheese either grated or out of a bottle right over the top.

Free stuff possibly? Why not!

 Thoughtful Thursday..

 Decided to start this because well it's Thursday, and I like free things, and well I figure if I'm thoughtful enough to take time out of my day to message a company about how much I enjoy a product & there is a small chance they will issue me a coupon or two to use sometime why not.
This way I'm not shopping online spending money! So here is today's thoughtful Thursday companies that will   issue you coupons if you let them know how much you enjoy them.
