CLOSED Ragu Party Kid Style & $300 AMEX GC Giveaway

Since I am a Ragu Brand Ambassador I had time to throw one last fun Ragu party with the family. I also have the pleasure of hosting a $300 AMEX Gift Card giveaway again. Can’t wait to see who wins some extra cash for bills or presents this holiday season! The kids had to decorate the dining room to get ready…

The daughter also worked on dessert, not that of a Ragu Sauce creation but that of watermelon candy she brought during Thanksgiving time too.

So we had decorations and we had dessert but what else did we need? Oh can we say a fun spaghetti dinner with lots of extras? Nothing like a good spaghetti dinner with those hidden veggies in the Ragu Sauce. My sons love spaghetti. My daughter doesn’t. Ragu sauce has helped my daughter complain less when we have spaghetti. We had mozzerella bites with dipping sauce (yes Ragu traditional sauce for dipping purposes), we had the chicken bites that everyone loved at our last party and spaghetti later on. We also brought the chicken bites as an appetizer to Thanksgiving at my Grams house.

Ragu Sauce + Non-Complaining Child eating spaghetti = Happy Mom.

Want to know how to throw a good party with Ragu Sauce? Well check out their recipe page and get tons of ideas. I personally love their deep dish pizza and other pizza recipes you would not normally dream up.

CLOSED Ragu $300 American Express Card Giveaway

Did I capture your attention? Oh yeah, today I am hosting a one week long giveaway for one $300 American Express gift card that can be used online and in stores in the US.

If you haven’t been reading along I am a Ragu Brand Ambassador which means I get to offer cool things to my readers, host home parties with yummy food and I attended an event in NYC to learn more about the Ragu Brand. Speaking of the Ragu Brand Immersion day, I think now is none other than a better time to share some fun details with you that I learned.

Did you know ….

  • More than 77.8 Billion Dinners are served each week
  • 877 meals were prepared and consumed at home per person in 2010 … 243 were dinner meals
  • Less than 10% of kids are eating the recommended daily amount of vegetables (CDC, 2009)
  • According to the Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, children aged 1-8 years have low intake of vegetables with 75% consuming less than recommended levels and median intakes less than 1 cup equivalent per day. Reference

#TMOM Twitter Party & Saving Money on Vacation

Every year we head to York Beach in Maine in hopes to find a place to stay close to the ocean. Each year we find that if you don’t book ahead of time then trying to find a motel or hotel to stay in close to the ocean water is quite an impossible feat.

This year our family has been saving to try to make sure we can plan ahead and stay at least one night in a motel near York Beach, ME. I know that my children would really like to go to the York Zoo as well and hopefully we can afford that extra expense on our mini family vacation.

One of the biggest reasons why we will be able to spend 1-2 nights in York, ME is because we take the time to bring our own food and supplies to ensure we don’t have to order room service or dine out the whole time we are on our mini-vacation.

Another great way to save money during a vacation would be to search online for coupons, deals and savings in the area you will be staying. A lot of companies have online savings that you can print to bring along with you and save some extra cash as well.

I can’t wait for a mini-vacation near the ocean, how wonderfully relaxing that will be and if we start searching now for deals in that area then maybe we will find a great way to experience the full joy of York, ME.

#TMOM Twitter Party Details – You’re Invited!

I am going to be a panelist at the #TMOM Twitter party and wanted to take a moment to invite you all to come along and tweet with us. Prizes and great conversations all about, how do you save for vacation?

All the Details

This party is sponsored by which is a website that aggregates deals from other deal providers (groupon & living social and others) PLUS provides their own exclusive deals. You can enter your zip code to find deals in your area or the area you are traveling to. Their perspective is that they could save a family money all year round so that they would have more to spend on vacation.

#TMOM Twitter Party Prizes:

  • $250 American Express gift card
  • two swag gifts
  • and a $25 gas card.


Attend the #TMOM Party on Monday, June 20,2011 from 9pm – 10pm EST. Be sure to RSVP by visiting so that we know who is attending!

As a panelist I will receive compensation for participating and sharing this party with you. I chose to be a part of the panelist for the #TMOM party because as a mom of three children saving money all year round  is important to me!
