Progresso Soup Review & Giveaway....CLOSED





Progresso Soup is not only the first soup that you think of when you want to eat soup, it is also a staple in the pantry of every home.

The History of Progresso
Over 100 years ago, the business now known as Progresso Foods started. A young Sicilian, Vincent Taormina, first imported foods from Italy to meet the need for high-quality ingredients familiar to Italian-Americans.

As more family members became involved and importing grew both in volume and locations, the business merged in 1927 to become the Progresso Italian Food Corporation and the Progresso label was born.


Our story is about quality:
We craft all our soups, broths and foods from authentic recipes using only the highest quality ingredients. We are dedicated to make better soup better for you. We believe that food should be delicious and there is no reason that delicious food can't fit within your diet. At Progresso, we love great food. It's been our passion for more thatn 50 years.

In addition to the 75 great flavors of  Progresso soup, there are now 4 great tasting Progresso soups that have 28% less of your daily fiber intake per serving (7 grams) and have no added MSG or artificial flavors.
The new varieties include:
Chicken Tuscany
Creamy Tomato Basil
Hearty Vegetable & Noodles
Homestyle Minestrone

I received the Homestyle Minestrone soup, soup spoons, and really cute soup bowls with the Progresso name on both the soup spoons and bowls.

I am really picky about my soups, and I loved the Progresso Homestyle Minestrone soup was delicious, it was hearty, full of vegetables, penne noodles, and the spices were perfect. I cooked it on the stovetop. I would buy this soup and recommend to my friends.

Pros:
-The soup was nice and hearty, it didn't taste as though I was eating fiber. It had plenty of vegetables, and noodles in it yet wasn't over done with too many veggies.
I liked the taste of it.
- The first ingredients listed on the can are: water, tomato paste, carrots, celery, kidney beans, potatoes, green beans, soluble corn, fiber, peas, and enriched penne pasta.


Cons:
There wasn't enough. Which isn't really true, it was filling, yet it was good enough that I wanted another bowl;}


Giveaway:
One Ma21cuteboy reader will win a can of Progresso Homestyle Minestrone soup, two soup spoons, and two generous soup bowls with the Progresso name on both the spoons and soup bowls.
 
 


How to enter:
Leave a comment here and tell me what Progresso soup is your favorite and how you like to eat it ie.crackers, grilled cheese, upside down, through a straw.
This giveaway will end on January 6, 2010
Winner will be chosen the old fashion way. GOOD LUCK!
Thank you to Progresso and My Blog Spark.
US only
I was given the Progresso soup, soup spoons, soup bowl, information, and prize pack from Progresso through My Blog Spark.


The opinions expressed in this post are my own, I was in no way paid for my review of the Progresso soup, spoons, and bowls.

Sick Christmas.......

                                                 Christmas


So it wasn't exactly what I expected. We went to my brothers' house in Salt Lake for Christmas Eve dinner, which wasn't really what I expected. I thought that we would get to hang out, visit, eat, and let the "kids" open their presents. Yeah right, I think that I said two words to my brothers wife the whole time I was there. Needless to say we sat on the couch{for 3-4 hours}, had the kids open a few of their presents and drove the two hours back home.




 Chucky wasn't really excited about his Christmas presents from Santa. I thought that he would be jumping for joy{literally} when he saw that Santa had brought him a "high quality" camera. Boy was I wrong. He acted like he didn't even get it.





Come to find out{lucky for him} that he wasn't feeling well, apparently the long drive up to Salt Lake, the long visit, the long drive home, and not to mention that Santa woke him up about 1 hour after he fell asleep could make a kid not feel so good. He was coughing, had a fever, and it was Christmas.


I hope that you all had a memorable Christmas and have a memorable New Year!

note: this is not the only present Chucky got. After he opened the "high quality" camera, I took video of the rest of the present opening. Yeah I know I am a horrible mother, I didn't get any pictures of my son opening the other presents that he got;{ He did get way to much though!

Ice Skating in a Winter Wonder Land

When we first got to the ice skating rink, they didn't have skates for us so we went skating in our boots.   This is Chucky's first time ice skating. He was really scared, and didn't get the hang of it.
But he had fun!










Doesn't it look fun?

Chucky's Christmas Concert

So I get a call at about 11:45a.m. from a pre-recorded message saying that Chucky's schoo was having their Christmas Concert at 1:00p.m. Imagine this: Mom not showered, not feeling so well, and being lazy in bed. So I hurry and call Nana and Papa to see it they are going to be there, Nana had to work and Papa was just finishing up his shopping{his work raises money every year for needy families in our area & then they get to go shopping for them, we like to paricipate & Papa appreciates all of the help he can get tee hee}. So I jump in the shower and head over to Chucky's school. Watching for Papa and getting worried because the 3rd grade is up there singing and I think that Chucky's class is next, well Papa got lucky, they decided to do the 5th grade instead of the 4th! WEEW! So Papa finally showed up, and Chucky's class is up there{Chucky didn't think we were coming because he didn't tell us}
 Hence Chucky looking sad:{

Why should I sing, my family isn't here to see me:{


Not really caring, nobody is here to watch me.


He finally see's us after the concert was over!    


There were swing dancers in front of them dancing so that is why he is looking down.

Snowed In....

One week ago, we got snow, quiet a bit of it.
We shovel "all" of our neighbors driveway, because she is elderly and has her elderly parents living with her{she usually pays somebody to do it, they hadn't been by at all yet} When he finally came, he got stuck in her driveway. Chucky got on his 4 wheeler and pulled him out!
He was so excited, he was hoping that someone else would get stuck so that he could pull them out!

Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Filling Squares

     Ghirardelli  "Say Gear-ar-delly!"



I received a sample of Ghirardelli's creamy milk chocolate squares filled with  peanut butter and perfectly roasted crunchy peanuts from She Speaks.                                                       


As America's longest continuously operating chocolate manufacturer, Ghirardelli has established its position as America's premium chocolate company for more than 150 years.



We are one of very few American manufacturers that make chocolate starting from the cocoa bean through to finished products. Throughout the process, we take special steps to ensure that our premium chocolate delivers our signature intense, smooth-melting chocolate taste.

    The Ghirardelli Difference





•Intensive quality assurance in the selection of cocoa beans means that Ghirardelli accepts only the highest-quality beans. We reject as many as 40% of the beans that are offered to us. Beans that are not selected are sold to other manufacturers.

•In all of its chocolate product, Ghirardelli uses a proprietary blend of cocoa beans that has been refined over the company's 150-year history to provide the company's distinct and intense chocolate taste.

•Ghirardelli roasts the cocoa beans in-house to ensure the company's signature flavor profile is consistently maintained in all chocolate products. We also use a different roasting process whereby we remove the shell first and then roast the small nibs inside. Because the nibs are fairly uniform in size, we have more control over the temperature and time, so we can get a more specific flavor. Other companies roast their beans before removing the shell, which requires over-roasting the outside portion of the bean in order to roast the inside. This could impart a burned flavor to their chocolate.

•Finally, Ghirardelli uses an intensive refining process to ensure that its chocolate truly melts in your mouth! Ghirardelli has no grainy feel because we refine most of our chocolate flakes until they are 19 microns (human hair is 100 microns in diameter). Other mass market chocolates are refined to only 40 microns.
 
* What I liked:
- I liked the creamy milk chocolate
- I liked the peanut butter filling
- I liked the crunch peanuts
- It melts in your mouth
 
*What I didn't like:
- There wasn't enough:p
 
- It melts in your mouth!

- It has just enough peanut butter filling.
- It is not over loaded with roasted crunchy peanuts.
- It is finger licking good:p


Do you know when chocolate is not of good quality and it leaves a bad after taste in your mouth?
Well that WILL NOT happen with Ghirardelli's chocolate!
 
I want to say Thank you to She Speaks for the opprotunity to review Ghirardelli's milk chocolate squares filled with peanut butter, and  perfectly roasted crunchy peanuts.
 
I received a free sample of Ghirardelli milk chocolate squares filled with peanut butter and coupons from She Speaks.
The opionions expressed are my own.
I was not paid by Ghirardelli or She Speaks.

It's My Golden Globe......


I received this awesome award from my friend Jen at Jael Custom Designs.
She has an awesome blog!


So as I accept this award; pass it to 5 other deserving blogs, I need to tell you about 5 things that I like to do.

1. I enjoy spending time with Chucky, yeah he sometimes drives my crazy sometimes, but I couldn't have it any other way! We enjoy going to the movies, playing games, reading stories, snuggling, and just chillaxin!
2. I enjoy eating! I love to try new foods, and L-O-V-E baked goodies:p So that brings me to cooking, I do like to cook, but not as much as I love to eat, If I made it, it probably isn't edible:{ But at least I tried.
3. I am enjoying the blogging world! It is really awesome getting to know people that you never would have known if it weren't for the internet! All of the peeps that I have met have been so nice. I like being nosy!
4. I enjoy alone time, I do like going to the movies by myself:) I like being able to sit through a movie without handing "someone" else their popcorn, soda, or snack. I like that I don't have to accompany that certain someone to the restroom when it's just getting good, I don't like sharing my snacks, and I like saving that extra money!! LOL
5. I enjoy crafting, I just learned how to sew , I taught myself how to knit, although it isn't as professional as I want it to be, it'll get there. I love making cards, bracelets, hair bows, barrets, and scrapbooking.{I know it sounds funny that I like making all of the girly things when I have a boy, but that's why I  it}

Don't forget the rules:
Grab the award
Post it on your blog,
along with 5 things that you like to do
Pass to 5 blogs{people} you'd like to recognize.
*Don't forget to tell them about the award*

Santa Came to Town...

I took Chucky last week to see the "Big Man." He was so nervous, I don't know why, he was going over his list in the car. We got there, Chucky sat on his lap, Sant asked what he wanted, and Chucky said "Lego's"..... Um when did you decide you were asking for Lego's? Santa said "Is that all?" Chucky said, "Yeah." The lady snapped  a picture, {while I sat there and fumbled with my DAMN camera} and we were off. As Chucky and I were walking I asked him "When did you decide that you wanted Lego's?" He said, "When I sat down, my mind went blank, and that's what popped into my head!" "So what kind of Lego's?" He takes me to the toy's where the Lego's are and shows me between 10-15 Lego set's that he wants from Santa and from me.
I haven't bought one thing yet for him, let alone have the money for Lego's. Have you seen how much Lego's cost lately? Wow! They cost about the same amount as a good sewing machine.

Here is a cute picture of Chucky and the Big Guy....

Last minute gift idea.....

If you have a last minute gift to get,  check this company out!!!

I had a great experience from a host of a giveaway.....

I won a giveaway at A Giveaway Everyday. It was a great giveaway, I didn't think that I would win; much to my surprise- I DID! I was contacted, sent my item request, and sent my information. I got an email a little bit later stating that my requested item was out of stock:{ I sent a new request to find it was out of stock also:{
But wait, it got better from there. I got sent a giftcode to order if my requested item came back in stock. Well it DID!!! So I order it using my gift code- It doesn't work, I try again to no avail:{ I contact the company they said they reset the gift code and to try again. I tried again, nope nada, nothing, so I email them again {I was a real pain in the ass}. she then sent me another gift code. It WORKED!! I order my item request, email the company back to let her know that it worked.
 I received great customer care, I received prompt responses, and I received a beautiful product!
If you still don't have all of your shopping done, I HIGHLY reccomend this company!!
I was a giveaway winner, not a paying customer, and they treated me like I was their "BEST" customer!
Are you ready to find out who this company is??

It is LuShae Jewelry.
Here is a picture of the earrings that I pick from LuShae....

Bitch & Moan....

Ok, this is my Bitch & Moan,




I am a single mom with cancer, and a full time student. I don't have money to do "Christmas", but I am making it work. So this isn't my bitch & moan, but I will tell you what is: Those people who are on every Angel Tree in our town, they don't work{are able}, shouldn't be on the tree in the first place, or only be on one. I am struggling to make a good life for my son and myself and just seeing them with their kids on a new bike, with another one sitting in the driveway because they put their name on every Angel Tree. I didn't put my name on the Angel Tree, because I know that there are more people needing those coats, shoes, and gifts more than me and Chucky. But shouldn't there be some type of rule about putting your name on more than one Angel Tree? I think yes, some of those people that are on the Angel Tree don't even get picked, and what happens to them? Anyway, this makes me sooooo angry!

If you want to participate in Bitch & Moan just write your post and link up at Fairyblog Mother!

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!

Sorry my ADD took over- If someone could please help me better understand this "TWEETING" I would really appreciate it!! The older I get the more advanced and harder they make all of this shit:{ Chucky is more advanced then I, but I don't want him to know about Twitter until after Christmas LOL!

Bright Idea...

I was just sitting here thinking to myself, "what am I going to do with all of this lace?" I have a great idea and I don't know if anyone would be interested but I am going to give it a shot.
I have all of this lace, and someone might have a lot of something else, so why not trade?
If anybody would like to trade some of my lace for something of yours email me or leave me a comment. Maybe we can find some cool stuff out there in blogland that you can't find anywhere:) If you are interested in trading "stuff" just leave a link of it with a picture and a discription:) I will try to get a Mclinky up ASAP if it all goes well:)

Cyber Monday.....

I have never done the "Cyber Monday" thing, but this year I will definately be doing it! Chucky is getting older and the things on his wishlist are getting harder and harder to find, or are so expensive:{ I have been doing my homework on some of the things that he is asking for and I think I am more confused now than when I had no idea what they were and trying to picture it 8}
Are any of you experienced in, or going to try the "Cyber Monday" thing? If you are a "regular" I could probably Definately use any/all advice:)
I know one thing is for sure: "Cyber Monday" is safer than "Black Friday" :)
Have a great day!!

BTW I am looking for a RCA Small Wonder HD Camcorder(the newest version). If anyone has any knowledge in this I could really really use it!!!

OOPS!

So everyone who visits my blog knows that I am new at all of this. I changed my blogs backround and lost almost everything, from buttons, to posts, to pictures, well a lot of stuff. I know that I have entered giveaways saying that I had your buttons, and I PROMISE you that I did, I am working on getting them all back, so if you could bear with me and give me a little time to get them, I would really appreciate it:)
Thanks,
Chacoy

Who's Ready For Friday?

I know that a lot of people are talking about the "Black Friday" deals, but what I want to know is: Have you gone before? Are you going this year? What is the best "Black Friday" deal that you think you have gotten? Do you have a strategy before you go?

My answers are: yes, yes, a Nintendo DS for Chucky:) I do have a strategy, but I think it goes out the window once I get through those doors:O)

Let me know how you "Black Friday"

Lace It With.....

Lace of course! I went to my local thrift store and found a bag of lace, I thought that when I got it home and opened it up, that it would contain a little of this and a little of that. I was so suprised when I opened up the little bag and pulled out 2 yards of lace, 8 yards of lace, another 8 yards of lace, another 8 yards of lace, I won;t bore you with all of the other yardage that I pulled out, so I will just show you the pictures. Oh yeah, I only paid 2 Dollars for the whole bag!!! I also bought 2.5 yards of black rayon, spandex fabric for 1 Dollar, and a green purse that I am going to tear up and use the parts for 1 Dollar. As you can tell I am very proud of my findings. On to the pics-









The picture above the green bag is all of the lace that I got in my bag seperated and wrapped up ready to do some great things with, if I can figure out what I am going to do with all of it, I do have some projects planned for some of it, but not all of it. Any ideas anyone????
