Favorite Blog Today: I'm a Lazy Mom

My friend sent me a link to I'm a Lazy Mom because they have a great pudding recipe that also uses Cool Whip!  So if you still have tons of both from recent sales you'll want to check out this recipe for a Chocolate Eclair Dessert.  Once I saw the picture I realized my sister in law made this for us a few weeks ago.  So I can say...IT IS GOOD!

Ed (my husband) was just making fun of me this morning for having so much Cool Whip in our tiny freezer.  How do I pass up FREE Cool Whip though...that's what I want to know.  Anyway I'm glad to have another recipe for it. :)

They also have a great post about Pudding Pops and making your own Pudding Mix!

Also when you buy 3 you can get a FREE gift with this rebate form.  Looks like they just randomly pick one of the 3 items to send you.

FREE Small Popcorn at Megaplex Theaters

We don't get to the movies much because of my 10 month old.   Hoping that I would sometime this month I signed up for the Megaplex Newsletter and they emailed me a coupon for a FREE small popcorn!

Freezer Ranch Chicken

This recipe is from Lion House Entertaining.  We got this book from our wedding and I use it all of the time.  One of my favorites is Ranch Chicken.  I used it recently as a freezer recipe and it worked perfectly!


Ranch Chicken 3/4 c. crushed cornflakes 3/4 c. grated parmesan cheese 1 package ranch salad dressing mix 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 1/2 c. butter, melted
In one bowl combine cornflakes, cheese, and ranch mix. In another add the melted butter Dip chicken in butter then coat with cornflake mixture SUPER EASY & TASTY!
To Freeze: place coated chicken on a greased cookie sheet (or pie tin- my freezer is a small)

let it sit in freezer until they are frozen solid (1/2 hour-ish)
then transfer chicken to labeled plastic bag

To Bake:
Thaw if necessary
place in greased baking dish
bake at 350 for 45 min.

Update about Ebates

I just found out that when you sign up for Ebates you can choose between $5 cash back and a $10 gift card to certain retailers.  Wanted to let you know!  Before it was $10 cash back but I guess they changed it.

50% off at Faustina!

City Deals has $25 Gift Certificates to Faustina for $12.50!!  There is only one per household. We have already used ours.  This is such a great restaurant in Salt Lake.  It's on the fancy side, not a place I would take the kids.  And the food is pretty.  :)

$25 Gift Certificate for $2!

Restaurant.com is offering $25 gift certificates for $2 again when you use code FUN!  This is a good way to try local places.  Just put in your zip code and see what places are participating.

Most certificates from Restaurant.com come with restrictions so make sure to read them before you buy.   Commonly it's you have to spend a certain amount to use it and it's dine in only. Also most I've seen have at least a year expiration date, if they have one at all.

Sign up

E-Coupons: What to do when they don't come off!

I bought Charmin the other day and it WASN'T on sale.   But I had a Smith's $3/1 e-coupon, plus a .25/1 paper coupon so I could stomach the purchase. :)   Anyway, the e-coupon did not come off!  What!  I wasn't about to make a fuss at the store with my kids in tow, so I went home with the sting of buyers remorse (lol).

Since the coupon was for $3 I decided to take action.  Here is what you do in case this happens to you.
