This Week's Menu and a giveaway!

We did so much better not eating out this week...I know Matt was happy about that.  Me...eh I was ok about it.  I was really tired this week so it was a struggle to get into the kitchen, but I did.

This week, I hope to do a little better since we really need to not eat out.

I also wanted to talk to you really quick about a new product that I was introduced to talk to you about!

I got a case of sample yogurt from Muller by Quaker.  My first thoughts on this yogurt were of excitement because they are low-fat which means that I get to eat them!  Secondly, I liked that they came in a good variety of flavors...as a matter of fact, there was a flavor we all loved!  Matt had the caramelized almonds (which is exclusive to Costco), Lucy had the chocolate balls one, which she ate like candy first and only mixed in a few to her yogurt.  She thought that was the most fun ever, that she got "candy" and yogurt.  And then Dexter and I ate the strawberry ones, but where I mixed mine together, Dex ate his yogurt first then strawberry mix.

These are also perfect size containers that they fit wonderfully in our lunch boxes and we have been taking them with us this week as we have been running around and they have been added to our lunches too!

My favorite part is that the kids honestly think they are getting a super special treat because the mix-ins are separated and they assume it's "dessert."


Muller yogurts will be for sample at Costco on 5/25, 6/11 and 6/25 in the Pacific Northwest Area too, so please head on to your nearest Costco and check it out!  I hope you love them as much as we do!

Additionally, I have a membership to Costco to giveaway!!!  This is gift is valued at $55 and all you have to do is enter via the rafflecopter below!  And don't forget to keep scrolling so you can see what we are having for meals this week!

  1. I like that these are generic enough (sandwiches) that you can adjust to what you have in your fridge and what you're craving :)
