The Circus is Coming to Town! 4 Winners get 4 Tickets!!


Ok Utahns...This is pretty exciting.  The Circus is coming!!!!  and....

I have 4 sets of 4 tickets to giveaway!!

So 4 of you will be able to take your family (or 3 others) to the circus for FREE!  I still remember going as a kid and getting a baton.  Best day EVER.   I could have went pro, but constantly beaming myself in the head got in the way.  :) 
Watch the video here to get excited!  

Here are the dates the tickets can be used at the Energy Solutions Arena:
Wed. September 22nd 7:00 p.m.
Thurs. September 23rd 7:00 p.m.
Fri. September 24th 3:30 p.m.

If you or someone you know can go then here is how to enter:
(my thinking was to make as many entries possible so that those who REALLY want to go would have a better chance)
Post a Comment for each that you do to be entered

- Leave a comment....any comment will do. 



- Follow Tight Wad in Utah with Google Friend Connect

- Take either button and post it on your blog or website (on side bar)

- Blog/Facebook/Tweet about giveaway (daily if you want - leave a comment for each time)

- Suggest Tight Wad using the "Suggest This" TAB on Facebook
either send individual invitations or post to your Facebook Stream.  Leave a comment saying you did, and for everyone that accepts you will get 10 entries!  I will keep track of those for you.  Your welcome to email me anytime to see what your status is.  Starting now everyone is at a 0.  


Giveaway will end Saturday August 21st at 10 p.m. MST.  4 Winners will be chosen by Random.org.  Tickets provided by Lulubug LLC / Jack Hart Associates.  I was also provided with 4 tickets.  All opinions here and in future posts regarding the cool circus are my own. 

Tickets for the Ringling Brothers Circus will be on sale starting August 16th!  Stay tuned for more information and a discount code!!!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be needed...lol

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots
sugar
cinnamon
nutmeg
lemon juice
1/2 c water

Add apricots and a 1/2 c of water to a saucepan on low heat.
Cover, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
Add sugar 1 T at a time till it tastes good
Add lemon juice 1 tsp at a time to taste
Add cinnamon to taste
Add nutmeg to taste - I did a lot of tastin'!! :)
Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat until thickened a bit


In batches add mixture to a blender
Blend until smooooooooth
Prepare baking sheet: line with microwaveable safe plastic wrap
Add mixture to sheet about 1/4 inch thick


MAKE SURE the plastic wrap doesn't fold over mixture and that it doesn't touch your oven
Bake at 140 degrees for 8 to 12 hours - fruit leathe…
