Kids Health Notes is giving away five (5) Jenny Craig 30 Minute Meals Cookbooks.
The cookbook is a spiral-bound collection of menus, not just recipes. Each facing page includes a full menu – entree and side/desert; shopping and kitchen staple lists; “quick meal countdown” to coordinate every dish; and of course, nutrition information.
I know this cookbook would be VERY useful in this house. I’m not a huge cook, so when it comes to fast recipes that’s what I like to do…..I’m trying to eat healthier and loose weight at the same time, so this would be a great addition to our house, would it be to yours???
Head over to Kids Health Notes and enter! Giveaway ends 12:00 midnight EST May 10, 2008.
In honor of the contest, here’s a healthy meal/recipe that can be made in 30 minutes or less.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 12 to 15 minutes
You Will Need
6 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
4 teaspoons honey
4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, about 3 ounces each
4 large buns, plain or whole wheat
8 small romaine lettuce leaves
2 small ripe mangoes, sliced
2 scallions, thinly sliced (optional)
Salt and fresh-ground pepper
What to Do
1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Mix the mustard and honey together and season to taste.
2. Enlarge the hollow left by the bone in each chicken thigh, cutting to open them out; press to flatten them a little. Place the thighs, smooth side up, in a lightly oiled baking dish or small roasting pan. Set aside about 2 tablespoons of the honey and mustard mixture, and spread the remainder over the top of the chicken thighs. Roast until the juices run clear when a thigh is pierced with a knife, 12 to 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, split open the buns and toast them. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each bun, top with the mango slices and sprinkle with the scallions, if using. Spread the reserved honey and mustard mixture over the underside of the top halves.
4. Put the roasted chicken thighs on top of the mango and scallions, then top with the remaining lettuce. Put the tops of the bun on and press the sandwiches gently together.

I don’t know how many of you have heard of House of Dereon clothing like. It’s Tina/Beyonce Knowles clothing line.
They’ve come out with a line for kids… I for one think the line is ADORABLE! I love it, and would dress my girls in it no problem. Except, well… this ad… what are your thoughts???
A lot of people are currently offended by the add. Claiming they’re pimping out the girls, making the girls look like hoe’s/sluts at a young age. I don’t see that at all, I think they look cute and stylish. My only opinion is um, the heels… Why is that small little child wearing heels that high??? No way!!!
So what are your thoughts on the ad? Would you let your girls be in an ad like this for clothing? Do you think they look to ‘grown’? Would you let your girls wear the clothes? Is it going to far?
I want to hear your opinions good or bad.

Come find Huddy Buddy. A great little store with hip threads for cool kids.
Huddy Buddy was created after a mom (Robyn the owner of Huddy Buddy) realized that her kid was dressed just like every other kid in the playground. They wanted to bring some diverse, fun and uniqueness to T-shirts for their son and his friends to wear.
So they created Huddy Buddy, which offers a great line of casual wear for all the cool kids. The designs were created by their son, his friends and Daddy as well. It’s a family affair! The tee’s and onesies are so cute, they’ll be sure to gain some comments and have your little one strutting their stuff in style! Huddy Buddy features Onesies, Tee’s and comfy pants for both infants, toddlers, boys and girls.
We were lucky enough to get 2 shirts for both my girls. They just love them. They’re bright and funky, stylish and fun! Lyric my oldest just loves her Little Chicks Rock! (Play It Loud) T-Shirt, she tries to wear it as much as she can! It fits her and her personality perfectly. Aria wore her Aloha! shirt to the zoo this past weekend, it was just too cute on her. Nice and bright! The shirts wash up well and don’t have any fading or too much shrinkage either.
Huddy Buddy makes 100% cotton, ethically made clothing that are hand screened in small batches. They’re unique and would be a great gift for someone or a great addition to your child’s wardrobe. Huddy Buddy also gives a percentage of every sale to something they call a Huddy Buddy Fund (#8100) that supports The Hospital for Sick Children.
So if you’re looking for some fun, fresh, funky, stylish and unique clothing for your kids, or even as a gift for someone else’s, Huddy Buddy has what your looking for!
