Mystery Shopping

August 12th, 2010 at 07:03 pm

I was reading about mystery shopping and I was wondering if it worth the time and money? Has anyone out that done this? Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start? I've been trying to look for something to do on the side but lately it's really hard to find anything that can fit into my schedule. Your opinion is much appreciated!

Children's Medicine Recall

May 24th, 2010 at 06:53 pm

This is for all the parents out there. I wasn't aware of this until my friend told me today. There is a recall on children's Tylenol, children's zyrtec, and motrin. My 1 yr old came down with a fever last night and I gave him some Infant Tylenol drops twice. Since he still had a fever, I kept him home from daycare and I did my work from home. That's when my friend told me about the recall and sure enough my baby's medicine lot number was part of the recall. My son is still sick so I had to go out tonight to buy him the generic version (CVS brand).

If you need any more info on the recall and see if your bottle is part of the batch, check out this site -



My Weekly List

May 24th, 2010 at 03:26 pm

Well, I finally did it. I finally sat down and wrote a weekly dinner list for my husband and I. I got tired of coming home from work and wondering what to eat. So before I went shopping, I wrote down some of the things we enjoyed eating -

Sausage and Peppers
Beef and Broccoli
Chili Dogs (for my husband, I like mine plain)

My husband is from New Orleans so cajun cuisine has influenced my taste buds big time. My mother-in-law occassionally sends me cajun seasonings and ingredients. Since I get home around 6 from work, I wanted something that was quick and easy to make.

So I kicked off Sunday this week with beef and broccoli. All the ingredients you need cost less than $10 - some broccoli, seasoning packet for beef and broccoli (I use Kikkoman), one onion, white rice, and beef. For the beef, I buy brasciole or pepper steak which cost only $2-3 a packet. This is one of our favorites since our plates are always wiped clean.

Tonight we're having hamburgers and french fries. The rest of the week it's meatloaf, chicken parm, chili dogs, pizza, and lastly, pot roast.

What's on your plate? How do you plan your meals? How often do you go out to eat? :-)
