2 of my favorite long standing sweeps

 I have 2 sweeps I've been entering for a while.   One of my favorite hobbies is sweepstaking.  Below are 2 that are not ending for some time.  47 days from todays date 82 days from todays date.

Enjoy, I will add more posts re: sweeps.  I do plan on reviewing the book I'm reading.  I am also in another play, called We Will Rock You.  It's going to be exciting.  It's a musical re: Queen.  Stay tuned.  I may take some pics!

~~~Until next time

Long standing sweeps for the year 2022

I haven't posted sweeps in a long time because of work.  One of my favorite things to do to wind down, relax, play or rest is sweepstaking.  Recently, my husband and I went to Oregon, to two vineyards for a 3 day stay.  The win was actually for a 2 days hotel stay in wine country but we opted to pay for an extra day in Vancouver.  The name of the sweepstakes that I won was The great 2021 getaway giveaway Tualatin Valley.  Our tour guide informed us more about grapes than I thought I would or could ever know.  We bought 3 cases of wine that trip.  We gave away the wine as gifts it was that good.  The names of the wineries were Kramer and Mountinore.  The tastings were relaxed, and our tour guide gave us cheeses, breads and snacks to enjoy with our wine.  That was just one sweepstake I won.  Since then I won some socks, chocolates, Modelo swag, yoga swag, cool thermo hot and cold items from Kim Crawford.  I love my hobby and below are some long standing sweeps and short ending sweeps to carry you through the end of March.  I will add more posts in this blog as I have time.  ends in about 59 days ends in about 94 days monthly ends 4/1 8/1/22 ends 4/7/22 ends 3/31 f/61e44c44e5de4M  4/30 3/26 ends in 46 days ends in 11 days  ends in 27 days ends in 4/15 ends 3/31  ends 3/25 4/4

Here are some sweeps I am currently entering.  Some have end dates on them, others do not.  You will have to look into the rules, as some may have special instructions.  If somethings says it ends in so many days, that starts the day this blog is published.  For instance, if at the end it says, ends in 11 days.  That is starting today, so end date would be 3/31.  That is all for now, and happy sweeping.

Packed with Protein!!!

 I am not much of a breakfast person, but I did manage to make breakfast today.  I was pleasantly surprised of how tasty my breakfast burrito turned out.  Below is the recipe.  We are trying to watch our carbs, as hubby is on a special diet.  

6 eggs (made breakfast for 3)

Lucerne shredded jack colby cheese

Hormel bacon bits


Flat out tortillas (below is some info on the flat outs tortilla)

Grease fry pan.  I used 2 pats of butter, but you can use olive oil, pam or what is normally used.

Scramble eggs, mix with milk

as eggs are cooking add cheese, and bacon bits, scramble

after all is cooked add to tortilla

I did not add salt or pepper, it is tasty enough without.

Info on flat outs

they are 60 calories The tortilla I used is with olive oil and sea salt.  7 grams whole grain, 6 grams fiber, and 4 grams protein.  No added sugar.  Eggs are also protein.  So the breakfast is packed with protein.  

Enjoy!  I am not usually an egg eater, but this was delish!

Bacon and egg skillet

Happy Sunday morning everyone !!!

I finally got a chance, albeit small, to come up for air from work.  I

get to do one of my favorite hobbies, which is writing.  Today, I

got to cook.  Sharing recipes, collecting them, and writing about 

them is what I am going to blog about today.

My take on a bacon and egg skillet.  You have all had these at 

restaurants I'm sure.  They are one of my favorite to go dishes 

when we have the opportunity to eat out.  Below is my recipe.  

Measure according to how many you will cook for.  

Bacon and egg skillet






shredded cheese, your choice

package of simply potatoes, I use the seasoned.

I also use the bacon grease to cook potatoes and scramble eggs.  

Sometimes I will use butter so things don't stick.

Scramble your eggs first, add milk and shredded cheese. Fry your bacon.  Cook the potatoes After everything is cooked, start

chopping your bacon.

After you have chopped your bacon.  Add shredded cheese to 

the top of your cooked scrambled eggs. 

Place eggs in bowl, potatoes and your bacon, YUM!  

You can mix it up, and add tomato, feta cheese, sausage, ham.  

Enjoy, next time I will write about my ham pickle rolls

Screen Time Burnout

Hello Good morning, Afternoon

I have some good tips for you to avoid Screen Time Burn out I saw on Windy City today.  I guess today is world Fridge day too, so clean out those refrigerators.  I know mine will be cleaned out as I am spending time to clean my house.  

Tips for avoiding Screen time burn out in no specific order

1. exercise, take care of yourself

2.  Take a break, take a walk, read. 

3.  Avoid screen time before bed.  I know with my job it is hard because of paperwork

Let's clarify, screen time is computers, tablets, smart phones and tvs.  Anything that has a screen.

4.  get special glasses for blue light

5.  Make your font larger.  

That's what I remember from the show.  Good luck, everything in moderation!  

Until next time~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
