Review: Simple Truth Fresh Mint Wipes & Paper towels

I recently received a #FreeSample of Simple Fresh Mint wipes and paper towels and these wipes might have saved my marriage!  I am not a "disinfectant" wipes person and even more so since having a baby.  I've always felt like they were a bunch of chemicals and I've been afraid for her to grab them and do what babies do....put them in her mouth!  Or hold them and then put her hands in her mouth!  But these wipes take away that fear AND THEY WORK!  My toddler noticed the smell immediately saying "What's that smell Mommy?  It smells good"   And after almost a week without water, I can fully support these wipes and will continue to buy them for our family.

I thought the paper towels were very absorbent and thick.  If these came in the "pick-a-size" I would buy them for our family.

Review: Trail Mix

Recently we were asked to sample a few products and share our thoughts.  We were excited when our box contained pretzels & almonds...always a good start to trail mix!  We added marshmallows, raspberry M&Ms (toddler pick), popcorn and jelly beans (another toddler pick!) for a yummy afternoon snack.  She loves to help make & mix things and trail mix is perfect for that.  I've also found that while she might pick things out to eat (all the pretzels at the same time), she eats it all.

I like that it is easy to put together and tastes delicious!  Kroger pretzels are one of our favorite brands (toddler prefers the sticks :-)).  And she's loving the almonds too!

Review: Simple Organic

When Kroger offered to send me a couple free samples of their Simple Organic products, I didn't hesitate to say yes!  These are products we've been enjoying as a family for awhile already.  When my 2 year old and I can't agree on what equals a good breakfast - we can usually agree on a Simple Organic Breakfast bar.  And she LOVES the blue tortilla chips.  Every time we go to the store we come home with one of the salad options whether it's a 50/50 mix or spinach.  So good!

So if you haven't tried this line - give it a chance next time you're at Kroger.  You won't be disappointed!

Review: Potato skins and hot chicken

Soccer matches call for a winning party spread! What's your go-to? #KrogerFaves #WinningCombo #MyMagazineSharing #FreeSamp http://mymagazinesharing.us

These chips are one of my newest favorites!  I can't eat many in one sitting, so the heat helps with portion control :-)

The potato skins are great for a quick appetizer or for when you have a hankering for a baked potato, but don't have the time to wait for one to bake.

Review: Ciao affogato!

When Kroger sent me the recipe for this dessert, I was skeptical.  I'm not a big coffee drinker, so I wasn't sure I'd even like it.  Well,  I shouldn't have been, it's so yum!  The ice cream and whipped topping made the coffee smooth and creamy.  Will be drinking more of these this summer!

Next time I'll probably get simply plain vanilla ice cream...or mint...hmmm.  The pretzels couldn't stand the extra liquid :-)

Ingredients not show: Kroger Donut Shop Blend® Single-Serve Coffee & Chocolate Syrup

Review: Kroger Rice Bitz cereal

Loved this simple, yet delicious cereal as a breakfast with milk.  Also enjoyed it without milk and on top of yogurt as a snack!

We also loved using it to work on addition and subtraction :-)

What's Cookin Wednesday - Slow Cooker Enchilada Orzo

adopted from Damn Delicious
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 (10-ounce) can Old El Paso™ mild enchilada sauce
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth, or more, as needed
  • 1 cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 cups uncooked orzo pasta
  • Place diced tomatoes, enchilada sauce, green chiles, vegetable broth, corn and black beans into a slow cooker; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until well combined. Top with cream cheese.
  • Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high heat for 3-4 hours.
  • Uncover and stir until cream cheese is well combined. Stir in orzo. Cover and cook on high heat for an additional 15-30 minutes. Add more vegetable broth as needed until the desired consistency is reached.

This was YUMMY!  I actually liked this better the second day - like all of the flavors were really able to mix.  The original recipe calls for cilantro as a garnish, but we aren't a cilantro lovin' house ;-)
