DATE NIGHT = MOVIE NIGHT! Our dates nights are SO important with the recent changes in our lives so having an affordable movie night is a must! #MovieNightForLess #CollectiveBias #ad

Last week I told you all that by the end of the school year we are moving to Minnesota. My husband recently accepted a new job in Rochester, MN and by the end of the school year we will be leaving Wisconsin. I'm super excited about this new opportunity and I can't wait to start this new chapter in our lives because we are already in love with Rochester and our plan is to build again! However, between now and then, my husband will be commuting every other week. So that kind of sucks. 

We are that couple who does a lot together. We grocery shop together, we clean-up the house together, we run errands together. And even after spending all that time together, we even still like each other. ;) I couldn't imagine being the type of couple who does things separate all of the time! (Sooo, just an FYI....please don't confuse the fact that we enjoy spending time with each other with those corny, lovey dovey, gushy mushy couples.)

Now that our time together is that much more precious, regular date nights are a must. A MUST. 

Here is the thing though, we don't like spending too much money on date nights. We can be a bit frugal like that. I'm all for saving where you can so you can splurge when you want, but when it comes to date nights, we rather save. This is why we like to make our date nights a movie night.

So how fitting was it to find this Movie Night For Less display featuring Warner Bros. movies, Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn, and M&M's® at Walmart! The DVD's are priced at only $5 and the Blu-ray's are priced at only $7.88! Hello affordable move, popcorn, AND chocolate! Note: these prices will only be available for a limited time and are not suited for children under 12 years old. Go here to see a list of Walmart stores where this pallet is available.

There is a pretty huge selection of movies available and for us it was toss up between Horrible Bosses, The Blind Side, and Gran Torino. Since Horrible Bosses 2 is coming out soon, we went with Horrible Bosses (I can't believe we hadn't see it yet!). And of course we had to get every single variety of M&M's® that is available in the theater box.

Normally on movie nights, we pop some Orville Redenbacher's popcorn and toss the M&M's® right in the bowl. Speaking of the bowl...........

Can I just point out how awesome it is that THE BAG POPS INTO A BOWL! No extra dirty dishes for this girl!

On this particular movie night we both had a serious sweet tooth. So instead of our go-to popcorn and M&M's®, I decided to melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn and M&M's®

It's super easy to do, just be sure to make it head of time so the chocolate has time to dry! 

Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn & M&M's®

Step #1 Pop the popcorn according to package directions.

Step #2 Lay wax paper or non-stick aluminum foil on cookie sheet or counter. 

Step #3 Spread popped popcorn on covered cookie sheet or counter and be sure to pick out the unpopped kernels. 

Step #4 Heat melting chocolate according to package directions and use a spoon to drizzle over chocolate. 

Step #5 ENJOY!

I know, not very culinary. But hey, I wanted to spend my time with my husband, not my kitchen!

And when I say spending time with my husband...I mean talking selfies! Well, we try to take selfies anyway.

Broccoli and Apple Salad with Seasoned Nuts

Pinterest

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
This turned out DELISH with the seasoned nuts!! It is not your typical Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish but I am happy to have a YUMMY broccoli and apple salad with seasoned nuts on my plate! The seasoned nuts makes it feel like a treat, yet it is still a smart choice! #GoNutsForNuts #CollectiveBias #ad

Who says cold salads can only be eaten during the summer months? Forget that. Just because it's the holidays does not mean my veggies have to be covered in butter, cream, or a heavy sauce. Besides that, there is never enough room in the oven for side dishes. It's so much easier to make a cold salad ahead of time for that holiday meal. And if you are traveling to family or friends with a dish to pass, cold salads make it so much easier.

One of my favorite side dishes to make all year round is a broccoli and apple salad. I make my salad more nutritious by using Greek Yogurt and by skipping the added refined white sugar. It can be so boring to eat broccoli by itself. And if it's the only crunchy part of the dish, it stands out way too much. When you add in the apples, carrots, onion, and nuts, it's so much tastier.

The seasoned nuts makes it feel like a treat, yet it is still a smart choice! #GoNutsForNuts #CollectiveBias #adWhile I was doing some shopping at Walmart I came across this fun Planter's holiday sleigh display. After checking out the Limited Edition Planter's products it dawned on me that the Planter's Winter Spiced Mix would make a great addition to my broccoli & apple salad! The Planter's Winter Spiced Mix adds honey roasted peanuts, almonds, honey roasted sesame sticks, cashews, and pecans to the salad instead of just plain nuts.

  • 1 medium apple cut into small pieces
  • 2 small heads of broccoli chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup shredded or matchstick carrots
  • 1/4 red onion chopped into itty bitty pieces
  • 1 cup Planter's Winter Spiced Mix - divided 
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • pepper to taste (I usually give it 3 shakes)

Step #1 Combine broccoli, onion, apple, carrots, and 1/2 cup Planter's Winter Spiced Mix into bowl. 

Step #2 Mix together mayo, Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. 

Step #3 Add the mayo and Greek Yogurt mixture to the broccoli and apple mixture and stir together until well coated. 

Step #4 Sprinkle the remaining Planter's Winter Spiced Mix on top.

The Planter's Winter Spiced Mix gives this salad extra crunchiness and a little bit of extra sweetness. This addition has made it my favorite variation of a broccoli & apple salad yet! This may not be your typical side dish for the holidays, but the added spiced nuts do make it a little more fitting. Plus, everyone seems to try and not indulge over the holidays and with this salad, you don't have to feel guilty!

Blippa App

Have you heard of the new Blippar app? I recently added it to my phone and I'm having a blast "Blipping" different products to see if they are part of Blippar. It's a crazy cool app because it uses image-recognition! 

Blippar App

Want to give it a try and enter the world of "Blipping"? Go here and add the Blippar app to your Apple, Android, Blackberry, or Windows device. Then, pick up a product in a well lit room, open the Blippar app, and watch the product come alive! 

When I used the Blippar app on my Planter's Winter Spiced Mix can, I found a great tip on warming the nuts in the oven for 5 minutes at 250º! Yes, that information was also on the can, but honestly after I read the ingredients and nutritional information on a product, the rest of it is just noise to me! 


If you need more inspiration, check out the Cooking Up Good website. They have recipes, sweepstakes, loyalty programs, coupons and more! What's not to love? If you're looking for a new dinner idea or a chance to win some awesome prizes, be sure to check it out!
