I'm planning on serving Chicken Salad Sandwiches and pickles for lunch. It's 106 degrees today and it's probably going to get hotter in Las Vegas. No cooking today!

#PurtiansPride Twitter Party Prize Has Arrived!

I attended the #PuritansPride Twitter Party in May and won $50 credit! What a terrific prize since I've been a long term customer of Puritans Pride for many years. The UPS dropped off this box, Friday morning.

You Have To Make This! Grilled Cheese With Kale And Caramelized Onion Sandwich



I made the Grilled Cheese with Kale and Caramelized Onion Sandwich for lunch this week and totally loved it! I did use our panini make so no need for butter or margarine. Also, I used red onions. And no sandwich bread for this sandwich. I bought a loaf of sourdough and was completely blown away!

Chronic Illness Sufferers: Are You Looking To Achieve Wellness In All Aspects of Your Life?



I stopped by Fibro Files today and was pleasantly surprised to read her post, Dimensions of Wellness. See, I've been working on setting goals for all aspects of my life. I'm really excited about pursuing some volunteerism, after having to stop due to my chronic pain symptoms worsen. But these days, with daily exercise, healthier diet, and emotional balance I'm feeling ready to sign up and get to work in my community!

Are you looking to have more balance in your life too? You can hire a health and wellness coach like I did.

I've been a fan of Chocolate Covered Daydreams for awhile now. And wouldn't you know that after watching a HuffPostLive segment about the homeless youth problem in America, I would than read her post, "Laughing and Crying".

I was reminded that in darkness there is light and laughter. She's a wonderful writer so please check out her post.

Cheerios: "Just Checking"! I Just Love This Commercial!



When Marcus was this age, I could totally see him doing the same thing to my husband!

Please Recommend A Blending Sponge Cleaner That Works! Thank You!

In today's mailbox I was pleasantly surprised to find my concealer pallet that I had ordered on Amazon. Just in time, because I really needed to replace my old one!



It's been at least a year or more since I shared my make up stash. I won't bore you with individual pieces but here's what I currently have!

Most of this is the results of Twitter and blog giveaways.



My favorite prize are the Shany Cosmetics 25 piece make up brushes!

I also won some beauty blending sponges. I really do love using them but hate the clean up. The cleaner I'm currently using doesn't get them as clean as I would like. If you have a blending sponge cleaner that works wonders please let me know!

Menu Plan Monday ~ June 3, 2013

I was so excited when the west coast producer of HuffPostLive called me on Friday and asked me to participate in Happy (Half) Friday news trivia segment. Besides the audio issues, it was loads of fun! Kudos to my son, Marcus for helping with the technical issues and lighting.



Now, onto this week's menu plan. Lots of chicken and meatless meals since we've got lots of chicken in the freezer.

Thanks to Organizing Junkie for hosting Menu Plan Monday!
