We are big movie fans in my home. I actually think using the word “big” would be quite an understatement.The boys and I love to cuddle up on the couch with snacks and pop in a movie at least once a week. Royal (11) has become a big fan of The Hunger Games within the past few months. I am not sure exactly why he likes it so much but, if I had to guess, I think he might have a little crush on Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen). Shhhh don’t tell him I told you that. The movie has a phenomenal cast of people. The Hunger Games: Catching Fir cast incluses, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland.
He has a poster in his room and was nagging me daily about going to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire when it debuted in theaters in November 2013. I personally think these are great movies. I have watched the first one more times than I can count. We watch a lot of movies via our monthly subscriptions but I am always looking for new places for the best movies.
Have you heard of M-GO? No? Really? Well, at M-GO you can find a lot of movies! You’re thinking old stuff right? Not at all! They include many new releases to rent right online. You can even download them from your tablet, laptop, Smart TV or other streaming devices. If you create an M-Go account, they will give you two FREE rentals! The good news for me is, this also includes The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! I know an 11 year old who is going to be very happy!
Also, it’s very important that I let you know, there is NO CATCH. There is no cost at all to set up a M-GO account. There is also no monthly subscription cost and no commitment whatsoever. You only pay for the movies you want to rent or buy. The cost for rentals or purchases varies by title. Learn about what M-GO is and how you can use it here. Most of the ones I clicked were between $3.99 and $5.99 to rent. You also have the option to buy them!
I think a lot of people don’t realize how hard it is to be a single parent. Every day is a struggle one way or another. Unless you are a single parent, you can’t really understand it entirely. For many of us, there are no breaks. Yes, you may send your children for a visit with the other parent but, what are you doing while they are gone? Cleaning, laundry, catching up on everything you didn’t or couldn’t do during the week. Life doesn’t stop when you are sick, tired or just plain worn out. Didn’t sleep the night before? Too bad, alarm for school goes off at 6:30 am so get your butt up! Suffering from a killer migraine? Too bad, kids need clean clothes. It’s amazing the things I have learned to function with over the past 4 years.

Seafood is definitely not high on my food love list. In fact, the only ocean life I will digest is tuna fish and fish sticks. Do fish sticks even count as seafood? For my sake, I say they are completely countable! Okay enough about my fish stick delusion. Moving on! I really like to eat out. I don’t do it nearly as much as I used to. It’s too expensive and to be honest, I don’t miss the 30+ lbs that have dropped off over the past 4 years. (Score!) I am starting to get off topic and ramble a bit here. Okay, where was I? Oh yes, food!
We have a ton of restaurants in Toledo. You could more than likely eat at a different one every night for a year and never go back to the same one twice. I always look out for new places opening because I like to try new things. When I was asked to check out Bonefish Grill, I wasn’t sure. Despite my dislike for seafood, the nearest one was an hour trip. I went to their website and started looking over the menu. Now if you have a love for fish, you will love this place. If you are like me and don’t, no worries! Their menu also has options of chicken, pork chops, steak and more! They also have a kids menu, if you are wondering about that.

I am a “sammich” lover by nature. I can eat everything from egg salad to tuna fish to PB&J. Coming from an Italian background, lunchtime at Nana’s was always the best. She would always have, a minimum of, 10 different kinds of meats and cheeses in her refrigerator. Making a sammie was an art form in our homes. There was no way you could eat more than one of these bad boys. That is, if you knew how to make one properly. Because of this, I tend to stick to what I know where cold cuts are involved. I don’t really crawl out of my food box too often because I am a very picky eater. I have become much better in the past few years but, I still revert back from time to time.
Yesterday I went to Kroger and picked up some cold cuts. Normally my order would consist of oven roasted turkey, Virginia ham and provolone. Pretty straight forward and pretty boring. I noticed that they had Boar’s Head on sale. Now I love this brand but it is not something I would usually buy because honestly, it’s just too expensive. Cold Cuts do not last long in my home so while I want quality, I also look for a deal. Anyway, featured on their board was…. are you ready? Rosemary ham and jerk turkey.. say whaaaa?
I had to try them. I got a pound of each and couldn’t wait to get home to make myself a sammich. Why am I telling you about this? Because I was paid? Nope. Because someone asked me to? Nope. I am telling you because this was some of the best cold cuts I have tasted in awhile. They are also Gluten Free if you lead a GF lifestyle! Let’s see what you think! >>Click me for more of this article< <
