Ragu(r) Mom's the Word on Dinner

My household seems to be getting picky about dinner time.  "I want this, I want that" , how do I make something that everyone will like?  Some nights I feel like handing out a menu  in my own kitchen.  If only it were that easy! There are so many choices for dinner these days, I find myself reading, and collecting recipes that I never seem  to make.  One meal that is quick, easy and I usually have in my pantry is Ragu (r), and some type of interesting shaped pasta.

 The new and improved Ragu (r) Old World Style (r) Traditional Sauce has 2 servings of Vegetables in every 1/2 cup of sauce.  I add a salad, some nice warm Italian bread, and dinner is on the table. For those nights of not knowing what to serve that makes everyone happy,  Ragu (r) is bringing Moms together to share their stories about dinner time; picky eaters ,what to make, and how to get the kids involved in dinner time preparation. Ragu(r) has created Mom's the Word on Dinner community on their Facebook page,(look for it on the side bar).  The page has an ongoing conversation about dinner time, feature videos, photos, polls, quizzes, and dinner time ideas.  Moms share ideas on how to get the kids involved with dinner from coupon clipping, grocery shopping, recipes,setting the table, making table decorations, and even having the kids make a menu!  Imagine that. On the facebook page I read about other ways to use the sauce that kids might like ; as a dip for  vegetables, cheese sticks, tortilla chips, and mini meatballs.  There is also great  tips from Parenting Expert, Dr. Michele Borba, and Registered Dietitian, Dr. Felicia Stoler on the page. Visit Ragu (r) on facebook and join the conversation of Mom's The Word On Dinner.

Disclosure:  I was entered for a chance to win a Ragu (r) prize in exchange for this post. No Monetary exchange took place.  These are my own comments.  Please visit the facebook page for specific details.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?
