Menu Monday and a Giveaway

  This week was a great week of learning new things. Last Tuesday I was invited to take part in a TweetUp ( a meet up of those who are on Twitter) that was being hosted by Tenderflake. We learned how to make pocket pies and I was glad to see that they do offer pastry shells that are not lard based but are made with vegetable oil( so they are halal). You have to look for the blue box, they are the healthier and halal option.

We made several different pocket pies. My favorite were the chocolate/ banana ones. It was a great opportunity to see the many ways you can use the pie shells. As we left we each were given coupons so we could pick up some shells when we were home and play. When I saw my coupons I asked James who heads up the Social Media team for Maple Leaf Foods if I could get some to share, and the answer was an immediate yes.

So I am giving coupons to 2 of you. You will receive coupons for Free Product. Each of you will receive 3 coupons.

What do you have to do to get the coupons:

1. Simply leave a comment telling me your favorite pie filling.

For an extra entry you can like my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter. If you do either of these simply let me know in the comments.

I will use to decide who gets the coupons next Monday, May 19th. This giveaway is open only to Canadian residents.

So now what is on the menu here this week:

Monday- Breakfast for Dinner- Pancakes, sliced tomatoes.

Tuesday- Chili Pie and a garden salad

Wednesday- Skillet Black beans and rice

Thursday-Slow Cooker Chicken Curry with Quinoa ( I add a bit of lemon to this recipe)


Saturday-Shrimp Toastadas

Sunday- Harissa Chicken and Rice ( we are taking this to a potluck)

That is what is cooking here this week. Don’t forget to share you favorite pie filling for the giveaway. As well if you are looking to save on your grocery bill you might want to read my other post today about Extreme Couponing. Now I am off to Organizing Junkie to see what is cooking this week.
