My Letter From Gooseberry Patch



I love to cook and be creative in the kitchen and I love to collect cookbooks. Yesterday, I received a letter from the creators of some of my favorite cookbooks (Gooseberry Patch).  The letter said that they wanted to use one of my recipes in one of their upcoming cookbooks.  I know I may be a little old to jump up and down but I did anyways.   My recipe along with my name and hometown will be featured in their new cookbook due out in the Spring of 2011.  Plus, as a bonus I get a FREE copy of the new cookbook. =0)

Do you have a family recipe that you would like to share with others or something that you created yourself?  Check out Gooseberry Patch and submit your own recipe, craft idea, or memories.  You never know you may get your creation published too. =0)

Groupon: $20 For A $40 Certificate To The Body Shop - Today Only



Today's Groupon deal is a HOT one!  For only $20 you can get a $40 certificate to spend at The Body Shop. This is a national deal and can be found under any city and is only available today.  This is a great way to mark off some presents on your Christmas list (or as a present for yourself) and save some money doing it!

Fine details for this deal:

Certificates expire Feb 25, 2011. Limit 2 per person. Limit 1 per visit. In-store only. May use with "Love Your Body Club" discount, and is valid toward sale items. Must use in 1 visit, no cash back. Non-transferable. Not valid with other offers or toward gift card purchases.

New to Groupon?  It is a site that works on the collective buying principal.....they get huge discounts by promising business so many customers.  For example, on today's deal they "promised" The Body Shop that they could get 30 people (I am using Boise as my city) to purchase the "groupon."  Once the purchasing power reaches that 30 threshold then everyone who wants to purchase it will get it.  If It doesn't reach 30 then no one can get it.  (You will not be charged unless the 30 threshold is met) The deal changes daily.  Today's deal is a little different though because it is a national deal- you can choose to purchase it from any city (doesn't have to be one close to you) and each city has a different threshold that has to be met.

Family Night Pizza



As a family, one of our financial and health goals is to eat out less.  Considering we are a family of 5 and dinner at a restaurant can easily run us $50 or more, eating at home more often just seems to make sense.  So, each week we write a dinner menu and prep what we can ahead of time so that at dinner time we aren't tempted to let someone else do the cooking and cleaning. 

And on the weekly dinner menu the weekend belongs to the kids.  Each kid is responsible for planning a meal and helping us cook it.  Not only does this teach them important skills like cooking it also teaches them planning and responsibility.  Friday night was my middle son's night for dinner and he chose homemade pizzas.  We made the pizza dough and sauce ahead of time so when it came time for dinner we only had to stretch the dough and create our own individual pizzas.  Don't they look yummy! (The picture is of three of them before they were cooked.)



Adding Up The Savings:  Pizza at our favorite pizza place runs $17.95 for a large speciality pizza and $10.95 for a large cheese pizza (a typical order = $28.90 for pizza alone).  Our homemade pizzas were made from mostly items on hand and ended up costing us less than $5 total.  The added benefit of controlling what was put in our pizzas and the fact that we made them together as a family made this meal priceless.
