Chicken Theme! Now it's time for the
Month of November! So tonight I will
be giving you a 2fer to end this Theme!

Next week I will be having NovemberFeast!
through the Month of November I will be
posting all sorts of recipes for a feast in honor
of the Thanks Giving Holiday! I realize that not
everyone eat the same foods during this Holiday
so hopefully these recipes will cover everyone.

Happy Eating! Enjoy!!!

In Honor of having over 100 followers! I'm doing my first Giveaway!












I had my 7 year old niece try the
Yoplait Trix Yogurts in Berry Bolt
and Very Berry Watermelon and
she chose Very Berry Watermelon!

I asked her a few questions about them
and here are her answers:

Me: How does it taste?
Good
Some What Good
or
Very Good

Niece:
Very Good

Me:
How is the texture?
Creamy
Not creamy enough
or
Very Creamy

Niece:
Creamy

Me:
Is it Sweet
Not Sweet enough
or Very Sweet

Niece:
Sweet

So on to the giveaway:




Are you searching for a snack for the kids that tastes good and is good for them? Yoplait Kids yogurt is the perfect solution with 25% less sugar than the leading kids´ yogurt. With its thick and creamy texture that will hug your little one´s spoon, you won´t have to worry about a sticky mess to clean up afterwards. It also contains no artificial sweeteners or flavors, so you can feel good about serving it to your kids.

In addition, Yoplait Kids is a good source of vitamin D and, according to two new studies that provide the first national assessment of the crucial nutrient in young Americans, millions of U.S. children have disturbingly low vitamin D levels, possibly increasing their risk for a variety of health concerns, including bone problems. About 7.6 million children, adolescents, and young adults have vitamin D levels so low they could be considered deficient. It can be challenging for growing kids to get enough vitamin D because this nutrient is only found naturally in very few foods; however Yoplait Kids makes it a little easier to incorporate a delicious source of vitamin D and calcium in your child´s diet.

By participating in this Spark, you will receive a coupon* for any of the Yoplait Kids yogurt products along with a Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun prize pack. Perfect for accompanying this fun afternoon snack, the Yoplait Less Sugar, More Fun prize pack includes coupon for a Yoplait Kids yogurt, a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a fun spoon that changes colors in warm water, a reusable place mat with games to keep the kids happy while snacking, and a fuzzy tangle puzzle for some after-snack fun. You can also give away 2 of these prize packs to your readers! An image of the prize pack is attached and you can also download it from your personal page at MyBlogSpark.com.

saw this great idea on
