I recently received these jars of sauce from Newman’s Own and as part of being a FoodBuzz Featured Publisher.

Jars of Red Newman's Own Tomato and Basil Bombolina and Roasted Garlic Sauce

I am anxious to try the Tomato & Basil and I’m sure Scott will love the Roasted Garlic

I have been craving bruschetta lately and I bet these sauces along with some fresh basil, and a few extra diced tomatoes would work perfectly.

Or I could try the Newman’s sauces as a pizza sauce.

Or I could use it over “Noodles”

If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler and make zucchini ribbons rather than “noodles”.  Or you can buy a spiralizer here in case you love kitchen gadgets as much as I do and are just dying to clutter up your kitchen with another appliance to try out another gadget.
I do really love my spiralizer for fast and easy meals.  Zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, use it to make curly baked sweet potato fries.  I love it almost as much as much as these

Where were we.  Oh yes, back to sauce.  Normally I make my own red sauce in the Vita in about 7 seconds flat but the Newman’s Own sauces will come in handy when fresh tomatoes become a luxury.

I like that the Newman’s Own Foundation donates to charities around the world.

Top of Newman's own can -- All Profits to Charity, Newman's own foundation continue's Paul Newman's commitment to donate all royalties and other tax profits from this product for educational and charitable purposes. Paul Newman and Newman's own foundation have given over $300 Million to thousands of charities since 1982.

I was also sent me this Flip Ultra HD Camera

I can’t wait to put it to use.

Maybe on our upcoming trip or just walking around daily life.

I may let Skylar play with The Flip and see what kind of video she captures.  Four year olds make great videographers.  Haven’t you heard?

I heard that you liked the Caramel Pumpkin Whip Dip

It’s the perfect thing to make when you’ve got a little leftover pumpkin puree in the bottom of the can and don’t know what to do with it.  The dip comes together in less than 15 seconds and have you heard the expression, Finger lickin’ good?  Yeah, alrighty then.


1. Have you tried Newman’s Own products?   Any favorites?

2. Do you take more pictures or videos?

I don’t actually take much video on my iPhone or with my DSLR that does either stills or video.  I don’t know why I never think to shoot video.  The Flip should have me inspired since it’s so cute and looks fun.

Looking back on Skylar’s early years, I wish I had shot more video.  I mean, home videos from when you’re a kid become the stuff that embarrassing high school or college graduation parties or wedding rehearsal dinner moments are made of, right?  All the home videos from when you were young and acting silly.

3. Weekend plans?

I’ve got a busy one lined up.  I hope you get some R & R and can unwind and recharge your batteries a little bit.  That’s the plan for me.  Not sure how true to “plan” things will actually play out but I can try.

P.S. Thanks for the $100 Visa & Pedometer Giveaway Entries

Enjoy your weekend!
