Have Flavorful Low Soduim Meals With Mrs Dash

As you know, I am trying to make more meals at home instead of eating out. One way to make your meals more exciting is to "spice" them up. I love Mrs Dash low sodium spices. You can have great taste without a lot of salt. The favorites at our house are Southwest Chipotle, Fiesta Lime, and Onion and Herb.

I have some great easy ways to more flavorful meals. Here are some of the ways that I use Mrs Dash in my meals

Spiced Up Hash Browns:
Package of frozen has browns or shred your own
Green peppers
Olive Oil
Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning

Shred potatoes or use frozen hash browns. First chop some onions and green peppers. Heat your skillet with a little bit of olive oil or cooking spray. Add hash browns, onions, green peppers, and 2 teaspoons of the Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning (sprinkle evenly over hash browns). Turn over after 3 minutes. Serve when both sides are brown.

Green Pepper Skillet:
Ground beef or turkey
Green Peppers
2 cans of Tomato Sauce
3 cups of Minute Rice
Mrs Dash Salt Free Fiesta Lime Seasoning

Make the 3 cups of Minute Rice according to directions and set aside. Brown ground beef or ground turkey. Add chopped green peppers and two cans of tomato sauce. Then add 2 tablespoons of Mrs Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning. Stir often until simmering about 3 minutes. Add 3 cups of rice (already made). Stir and serve when heated through.

Vegetables: The Mrs Dash seasonings are also great to sprinkle on steamed veggies. Kids who turn their nose up at plain old veggies, can be be kids who like veggies with some spice and zing to them.

Mrs Dash has 15 flavors of Salt Free Seasoning Blends so you can definitely find one that would work for your family. Experiment with meals and have fun. Resaurant and fast food have so much salt in them. Eating at home is a much more healthier way to eat. Then you can know what exaqctly is in your food and take control of your family's health.

About Mrs. Dash
Mrs. Dash® doesn't just offer the tastiest salt-free seasoning you can find, they also have hundreds of delicious recipes. Most of these recipes are low sodium, and you'll find everything from appetizers, salads, vegetables and main dishes. Prepare tasty, healthy cuisine when you're cooking with Mrs. Dash® Salt-Free Seasoning Blends.

Keeping My Ride Alive From Jiffy Lube & Giveaway

My Toyota Camry has 108,000 miles on it! Since I don't want the expense of getting a new car, a high priority for me is keeping my car in good condition. That means getting regular oil changes and other maintenance. In this economy, I think that even more people want to extend the life of their vehicle.

Jiffy Lube has created a new Facebook community called Keeping My Ride Alive. This is a community for people who want to get the most miles and years from their vehicles. You can browse tips, photos, and stories from other people or add your own.

A 2010 Jiffy Lube International survey has some interesting results that I want to share with you.
- More than half of U.S. drivers hope to hit more than 150,000 miles on their vehicle before replacing it
- More than a quarter are looking to clock in more than 250,000 miles before throwing in the towel
- While 99% of drivers agree getting their oil changed regularly will help prolong its life, most are looking for additional services during their oil change visits to help keep their ride alive
- Convenience: Nine in 10 people agree having other key vehicle parts and fluids checked during their regular oil change is the most convenient way for them to maintain their vehicle’s value and longevity
- Speed: More than half of U.S. drivers (59%) agree it is important to have their oil change finished in 30 minutes or less

To help keep your vehicle in tip top shape, Jiffy Lube offers the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change to address these needs, providing drivers with much more than just an oil and filter change. Watch the video to learn more about this service.

**Thank you to Jiffy Lube for providing information and gift cards for giveaway. I received no compensation for this post **

I am giving away 2 $35 Jiffy Lube gift cards to 2 lucky readers!

Busy, Busy, Busy!!

Sorry, that I haven't posted much in the last several weeks! I have been very busy getting my son ready to start college. There have been so many things to buy and do. I can't believe that all the years have flown by so quickly. It seems like just yesterday that he was starting kindergarten. So I just wanted to spend some time with my kids before they started school. I will be back in full swing next week!
