Chicken Bacon Ring

This was one of our dinners that resulted from what to do with leftovers?  We had some leftover chicken that needed to be used up and I came up with this recipe!

1 can of crescent rolls
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup diced onions
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

Open crescent rolls and separate triangles, arrange on non-stick pan as shown in picture 1.
Mix remaining ingredients and spread around the middle of the crescent rolls.
Fold in the triangles over the chicken mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown at 350.

Countdown to the Beach!

Yes we are going to the beach this summer!  My boys are so excited, so am I.  I am a beach girl, always have been always will be.  For me the word "vacation" means to me is spending a week with my toes in the sand soaking up the sun! 

My boys get so excited and they love to do a countdown before a vacation.  This also helsp my husband and I from being asked the constant question, "When do we leave for the beach?"

This year, my four-year helped cut out pictures and glued them onto our countdown chart.  My seven year old wrote the numbers one through 44 on small pieces of scrap paper.  I then taped the numbers on our countdown chart.  Every morning we pull a number off and are one day closer to when we "leave for the beach!"

Spinach Mushroom Omlet

The picture doesn't make it look very appealing, but if you love spinach and mushrooms, this one is for you!  I enjoyed this for dinner one night when we were having a "help yourself night".  No one in my family would eat this anyways, except me!

2 eggs, beaten together
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 cup fresh spinach
salt and pepper

Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat.  Sauté mushrooms until tender.  Add spinach and cook down.  Pour eggs directly over the spinach and mushrooms.  Once cooked on one side, flip entire omelet and continue to cook until eggs are fully  cooked!  Salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!

I didn't add cheese, but I am sure it would be a great addition!

Dial Kids Body & Hair Wash - A Review, Giveaway, and Sweepstakes!

For 65 years, the Dial brand has been developing trusted personal care products for clean, healthy skin.  Dial is excited to announce its entry into the kids' personal care segment with NEW Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash that offers age-appropriate variants developed to address the specific needs of children.  Dial Kids Peachy Clean for ages 2+ and Dial Kids Watery Melon for ages 6+.

Developed with pediatric dermatologists, Dial introduces specialized formulas for children ages 2-5 and 6-10, helping parents make smart decisions with it comes to kids' perfect skin.  The 2-in-1 formulas combine shampoo and body wash for one speedy step.

 (my 4 year old thought it was pretty funny when I asked him to stand in the shower in his pj's!)

Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash Peachy Clean
Meant for children ages 2-5.
Perfect for kids that have outgrown traditional newborn soaps
but aren't ready for adult strength hair and body wash.
Provides ultra gentle cleansing with a fun, light scent.
Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash Watery Melon and Berry Cool
Meant for children ages 6-10.
Offers mild cleansing without drying out delicate skin.
Watery Melon and Berry Cool variants contain bright, vibrant colors
and fun scents that take bath time to a whole new level of fun!
Both formulas are teat free, hypoallergenic, contain no artificial dyes or added parabens,
 and are pH balanced.
I was given the opportunity to try both of these great new products.  I have a 4 year old that was able to test the Peachy Clean and a 7 year old who got to test the Watery Melon.  The first thing I liked about both products was that it was both a shampoo and body wash in one!  I like having just one container that can do the job of two.  It is often confusing for little ones who want to "do it by themselves" to know which the shampoo and which is the body wash.
The second thing I enjoyed were the scents.  I love the smell of scented body washes and they both had an amazingly pleasant scent.  I especially enjoyed the Peachy Clean scent, I wish I could use that for myself!  Also, they did not irritate either of my sons' skin, just left them smelling clean and fresh.
The verdict from the boys?  "Can we buy some more of this?"  They loved it! 
The Dial brand is hosting a sweepstakes along with the release of NEW Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash.  One grand prize winner will receive $1000, while 250 additional winners will receive a coupon for a free bottle of NEW Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash.

Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips - Review, Giveaway, & Contest

Well it is almost spring time and that means ants will be coming out in full force!  Combat is introducing new Ant and Roach Killing Bait Strips.  The same killing power found in Combat Gels is now available in a new discreet design.  These thin bait strips have an adhesive backing that makes it easy to hide out of sight and reach of children and pests.

Combat Killing Bait Strips are easy to apply and leave no mess.  The unique gel bait formula contains food and water that roaches and ants seek, combined with Fipronil, a fast acting insecticide that begins killing within hours once the insect has come into contact with the bait. 

Unlike sprays that just kills the bugs you see, the strips are designed to kill the nest and colony that are beyond your reach - attacking the source of the pest problem. 

We have a sunroom that constantly gets ants.  I will definitely be using these strips over the summer picnic season!

During the month of April through June, Combat brand is hosting an online sweepstakes where entrants can become eligible to win one of three $250 Visa gift cards or one grand prize of $1000 Visa gift card!

One Spend Less 2 Save More reader will win your choice of either the Ant Killing Bait Strips or Roach Killing Bait Strips!
