I’m so excited to have dinner done, but I’m a wee bit sad that this is the last day of Crock-tober! I have sooooooo loved sharing these recipes and hearing from you each day, and am planning to do another round in February (just mark your calendar.) 🙂

And, as I mentioned in the video, you can sign up for FREE mobile text alerts from PPP of the very best deals.

Here’s how to sign up: 

  • Text Follow ppphotdeals to 40404
  • You’ll receive a message from Twitter that says “want to tweet? Welcome to Twitter! You’re now following @ppphotdeals and you’ll receive your Tweents on  your phone. (Std msg rates apply. Reply w/HELP for more.)
  • To STOP getting updates, just text Off ppphotdeals to 40404

Note that this will not be all of the deals – my thought is that it would be no more than five to ten texts per week, and most likely fewer (especially after the Christmas season is over.) Here are a few ideas of what I would consider “BEST” deals:

  • American Girl savings
  • HUGE Lego sale
  • 50% or more sale on Pyrex or Cooking items
  • Big sale on Kids ride on toys
  • Items that are high value but I know won’t last

 

This is run through Twitter, however you DON’T need a Twitter account to sign up (and you won’t be contacted by me through Twitter.) It’s just a program that easily lets me send you the deals, and hopefully will help you save on the hot items that sell out quickly!

I didn’t want to make dinner today.

 

I didn’t want to clean out Mrs. Potts (who didn’t get a good bath last night), 😉 I didn’t want to brown the ground beef, and I didn’t want to chop up one more onion.

 

not. at. all.

 

But because I knew a few folks might be watching (eek), I sucked it up and gave Mrs. Potts a good scrub. And I browned the ground beef. And I even chopped up a whopping cup of onion.

 

And it took all of about 13 minutes.

 

To have dinner done.

 

And skip the drive thru.

 

And save my  hubby from cereal for dinner.

 

I seriously won today. 😉

 

If you’re like me and just don’t want to get it together and get dinner done, 

 

you are not alone.

 

But it’s 13 minutes.

 

And you’ll feel so good.

 

And your house will smell so  yummy.

 

And your family will call you a rockstar. 🙂

 

(Okay, they probably won’t call you a rockstar, but YOU can call you a rockstar and I’m over here calling you a rockstar today too.)

 

 

See how easy it is to pop dinner in Mrs. Potts (definitely check us out on Facebook Live as well where you can check out reader’s comments ~ I love hearing from you!), and join me as we cook real food for our family all month long this Crock-tober.

Whew.

Crock-tober Day 8 + When You Really Just Mess Up

Passionate Penny Pincher CROCK-TOBER

Click HERE to see video if it’s not working for you. 

I’m so excited to have dinner done today! However, making dinner on Facebook Live today was nothing short of a hot mess, so I decided not to share the video over here. instead you can see above how I tried out the Silhouette Cameo today – it’s on sale for a crazy price, so grab one while it’s on sale today only if you’ve been looking for one of these!

 

 

I’m not gonna lie ~ doing these FB live videos is hard for me, and here’s what this morning’s schedule at our house looked like before going live:

  • 5:00 AM – wake up
  • 5:20 AM – head to gym (looking good, right?) 🙂
  • 6:20 AM – leave class at gym early to run by Kroger on way home because we needed gluten free taco shells and graham crackers as we’re making dinner tonight for company
  • 6:45 AM – at Kroger. No gluten free graham crackers. Forgot that corn tortillas are gluten free. Gr.
  • 6:50 AM – phone call from daughter that she needs me home now to take her to school for science group – race home – pick up 2 cute kids. Drive to school. 🙂
  • 7:10 AM – remember next kiddo has to be at school early today – hurry to shower – hurry to get dressed – hurry to brush hair – HURRY. 🙂
  • 8:02 AM – drop off next kiddo at school, hurry to Fresh Thyme to hunt down gluten free stuff and a few bargains
  • 8:32 AM – no bargains at Fresh Thyme (really?) but everything gluten free was there 🙂
  • 8:55 AM – race home to start dinner – get ingredients ready for FB live, except everything I kinda forgot everything we needed for dinner. (Dessert was good though, so it’s okay, right?)
  • 9:30 AM – press the button to go live on FB ~ yikes 🙂
  • 9:33 AM – realize I so do not have my act together ~ then my dog starts losing it because the garbage truck’s here while a few thousand folks watch me scramble. Not fun. 
  • 10:00 AM – decide I’m never ever never going to be cut out to be a famous cook, and really have no business doing FB live at all, but the reality is Facebook allows live videos to be seen more than anything else so I decide not to crawl up in a ball and cry although I’d really love to.  If all else fails, at least maybe I can encourage you that you’re not the only one having a messy day! 🙂

 

Yup – so if you want to see the end result of that mess, head on over HERE.

However, I didn’t quit (CAN I JUST TELL YOU HOW BADLY I WANTED TO QUIT?) and as promised shared how easy it is to make fun stuff with the Silhouette Cameo that’s on sale today for it’s lowest price ever. If you’ve been waiting for this thing I’d hurry and grab it today, it’s selling for $20 less than I paid on it’s lowest sale price ever and a crazy good deal.

 


And… you can check out the full recipe over HERE for these chicken tacos (my house smells amazing right now!) and remember you can sign up for your free Crock-tober grocery list, menu plan and cookbook right HERE.
