Cold StoneWho doesn’t love free ice cream? I know I do! Cold Stone Creamery is giving away 3oz samples of their new “Sprinkled with Wishes” flavor on Tuesday, September 27 from 5-8pm. Now, 3ozs is not a very big sample, especially not big enough to make a special trip there, but if you happen to be near one that night be sure to stop it.

Survive Before 5: Toddler Meals For Your Busy DaysI don’t know about you but sometimes I feel like with my 2 year old that I stall out on breakfast, lunch and even snack options. I mean honestly, how long is it going to be before he gets tired of cereal bars for breakfast, chicken nuggets for lunch and goldfish crackers for snacktime? When Tricia from Once A Month Mom announced she was working on a toddler ecookbook I was really excited to get some new toddler meal inspiration! So let me introduce you all to: Survive Before 5: Toddler Meals For Your Busy Days. This ecookbook is a step-by-step resource for cooking meals for kids before dinner. We all know that meal times can be a challenge and hopefully this month full of meal plans can help keep the kids happy, and more importantly, mom happy.

The plan includes breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Like all Once A Month Mom menus it contains grocery lists, instructions, recipe cards and labels. There are options for 1 child, 2 children, 4 children, or 6 children. If you have a child that eats more than the indicated toddler portions you can simply count them as an additional child when cooking. Since I have a 2 year old and a 6 year old I just make enough for 4 children so we have enough for both and a little leftover. Here are the recipes that are contained in the one month plan ecookbook:

blueberry pancakes**
toddler french toast sticks
fruity breakfast burritos

homemade spaghetti o’s**
individual mac & cheese cups
corndog muffins
homemade cheesy rice
apple chicken nuggets
individual pizzas**

frozen fruit cups
homemade yogurt
peanut butter banana yogurt pops**
peanut butter granola bars**

**Indicates NEW Once a Month Mom recipes not found on the website – 5 new recipes in total!

Here are some additional features:
-A choice of preparing for 1 child, 2 children, 4 children or 6 children.
-Grocery lists for 1 child, 2 children, 4 children or 6 children.
-Customized labels for each of your prepared items.
-Recipe cards containing photographs and some step-by-step photos as well.

We’ve already have made the individual pizzas and corndog muffins. I was so excited when I found out that both boys loved the corndog muffins! Little B loved them because it was cornbread (and what kid doesn’t love sweet cornbread?!) and hot dogs. When I added a little ketchup and he was in toddler meal-time heaven. So if you need some meal inspiration for your toddler, and even young school age kids, be sure to check out Survive Before 5: Toddler Meals For Your Busy Days. The price of this eCookbook is $7.99. You receive all of the resources above in an easy to view (or print) format.

Buy it now! HERE (don’t forget to use the coupon code OAMM599 to get a $2 discount through July 1st, 2011).

Fazoli'sCLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winners Su and Erin.

Have you been to Fazoli’s lately and checked out their new menu? They just expanded their menu and Dayton was one of the first places to get the new menu. Their kids menu now has more options including; pepperoni breadsicks, pizza bowties, pasta and butter sauce and a few other items. For a more “grown-up” palette there are four new 400 calorie options- chicken mushroom alfredo, penne tuscano, pasta margherita, and three cheese baked ravioli. There are several other changes to the menu inluding the addition of coffee and various breadsticks and dippers.

I was flying solo with the boys last Tuesday so we decided to head to Fazoli’s for Kid’s Night. C had kid’s pizza and B happily scarfed down all of his pizza bowtie dinner. They are getting fun little trays for their kids meals, but when we went they didn’t have them yet. Every Tuesday starting at 5pm it’s Kid’s Night and kid’s entrees are $1.49 with an adult entree purchase (kids’ meals are typically $3.49). On Kid’s Night there is usually an employee leading craft projects with the kids, C had fun coloring and making crafts while we waited for our food. Which was nice because it get me a little time to hang with just B, as he banged spoons on the table singing to himself. My boys ate all their dinner, we were all full when we left and I got a little break from cooking. And really when it comes to Fazoli’s what kid doesn’t love their all you can eat breadsticks?! (Looking for more kid’s meal deals? Be sure to check out our list of Kids Eat Free/ Cheap list)
