Jabbi Fam Menu Plan - 4/26 to 5/2

Don't ask me why but I always meal plan on Thursday morning.  Maybe it's because the ads/sales come out on Wednesdays but probably not since I never look at them.  Since all my dinner meals are completely gluten free, sales don't often apply.

I used to post (ok, rarely post) my menu plans on Our Friendly Kitchens but since I'm trying to blog more here, I've decided to just post my meals and recipes here from now on.  Maybe occasionally I will double post a REALLY delicious recipe.

Without further ado, I give your what we are eating.  Why?  I don't know.  People seem to like sharing meal plans.  I guess it helps spur creativity in each other :)  For additional help, I've linked to any recipe's I know are online!

Thursday 4/26 - Homemade Chicken Nuggets, Risoto and Green Beans
Friday 4/27 - Crockpot Texas Chilie and corn bread
Saturday 4/28 - Date Nite - Yay!!
Sunday 4/29 - Pasta w/ chicken, bell peppers and onions, garlic bread
Monday 4/30 - Crock Pot Lasagna, vegetable medley
Tuesday 5/1 - Burgers and Dogs
Wednesday 5/2 - Homemade Pizza

There you have it.  Yes, I cook 6 days a week...mostly.

So, I kinda jumped the gun yesterday with my post about the Early Entrance Giveaway - because it turns out that it's not for early entrance to register to the event - it's for 2 FREE TICKETS!!

But, there is ALSO an EARLY ENTRANCE opportunity for those who don't want to wait to see if they won the free ticket :)

So, HERE is the link to the Early Entrance - available for SMB contributors family and friends ONLY before it opens to the whole SMB community!!

If you want a FREE ticket to the event, post a comment below asking me to PICK YOU and I will randomly select two winners on FRIDAY! If you don't win, you still have a handful of days to pick up your early ticket before the rest of the public at 1pm NEXT Wendesday.

Whew! I hope that makes more sense! :)

(Note: Jessica, Mandi, and Erin, I have you entered already so you don't need to comment again!)

SMB Moms Night Out - Early Entrance GIVEAWAY!

So, as many of you know, I've had to opportunity to become a contributor to Scottsdale Moms Blog. For those not familiar with the blog, here's a little background: SMB was created to unite moms in creating a common community and actually getting moms face to face with each other instead of just online with each other. What started as a small community of Scottsdale moms has now fully expanded to the Phoenix metro area with play dates, resources and mom's activities for all to enjoy.

One of the things (the most famous and wonderful things) SMB is known for is their Moms Nights Out. These are held at wonderful locations around the valley and feature amazing raffles and prizes as well as food and drink. But the best part about them is its a great opportunity for moms to get a night out and spend it relaxing in a fun environment with friends. I have truly enjoyed these quarterly nights.

If you have been a follower of SMB, you know these nights sell out FAST - like in hours. They are limited to 200 people and that's it. As a contributor, I have been given the opportunity to giveaway on my blog 2 early entrance tickets before they go on sale to the public. Here's the event information:
