Update: We have a winner - Brian S! Please send me your contact information in order to claim these tickets. Contact must be made by noon on Saturday, February 27, 2010 to be eligible for these tickets. Thanks!

Yes, it’s true! THE circus is coming. Not just any circus but the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey “ZING ZANG ZOOM”. It’s an awesome experience for you and your family.

Elephants, tigers, acrobats, clowns and more wonder than you can imagine! It’s been a good number of years since I’ve seen the circus. I think the last time we went was when my older son, which is going on 10 years old, was 2 or 3 years old. He almost choked on his hot dog when the cannon went off. It was all good after that though. My youngest son is excited for the circus to come our way. He’s never been but has seen promotions and heard about it. He'll be excited - Mom Central will be sending my family to see the Dayton show in April

I have teamed up with Mom Central to giveaway to 1 lucky winner a family 4-pack of tickets to the Cincinnati, OH show on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 @ 7:00pm.To enter, leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about the circus.

Menu Plan - Week of 2/1/2010

I can't believe it. I've actually had time to post my menu. I've decided to print it out each week for my family. My fiance' and kids get home from work/school before me and they start questioning me before I get in the house some days. It will also help with dinner being what it's supposed to be (not that I mind someone else cooking dinner).

I'm not posting it this week but I've also planned my breakfast and lunches for the week. This kids will be eating at school/daycare.


1. BBQ Shredded Pork, Mashed Potatoes, Baked Beans
2. French Onion Burger, homemade potato chips
3. Hearty Chicken and Noodle Casserole

4. Beef tips, rice, broccoli
5. Easy Chicken Enchiladas
6. Mexican Style Rice & Bean Burritos (kids - chicken nuggets, fries and corn)

Super Bowl Sunday will be a finger foods since we will either hosting a party or going to one.
