Tonight's Dinner with Jennie-O

Hi everyone,

As most of you know I am a Jennie-O Switch Blogger, I love their products and have been using them for years, long before I was a Jennie-O Switch Blogger.  Honestly, we have some form of Jennie-O product at least 4 times a week!  So I thought I would share what I received in my Switch Box today as well as tonight’s dinner which features one of the products from the box.

One of the things I love about Jennie-O is the variety of products offered as well as the quality, for us they never disappoint.  

My Switch Box contained:

Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey   and   Jennie-O Extra Lean Boneless Turkey Breast Tenderloins 






For tonight’s dinner I'm making Turkey Meatloaf featuring both Jennie-O ground Turkey as well as Jennie-O Turkey Bacon.


Our dinner tonight was a slightly modified version of Jennie-O's Best Ever Turkey Meatloaf: Jennie-O Best Ever Turkey Meatloaf


Here are the modifications I made to an already tasty meal:  

1)  I added a 1/4 cup of dried spinach

2)  For the Onion I used a Red Onion and grated it directly into the meat

3) I  cut up and added 4 slices of Jennie-O Turkey Bacon that I pre-cooked a bit






I served our dinner with Garlic Mashed Red Skinned Potatoes and Sautéed Zucchini



Here are a few other yummy meals featuring the Jennie-O products I used in tonight’s dinner:


My favorite way to use Jennie-O Turkey Bacon, making a Turkey Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich!

6 Days with Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer




6 Days with Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer




Hi everyone!
As most of you know I was invited to try another product of theirs a while back and I’m happy I was invited back again to try Valentia’s latest: Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer.

A little background;
I have dry, sensitive skin; I’m talking so sensitive that most skin care products can just be in the same room as me and they’ll break me out or even cause a rash, lol….
Honestly I really do have sensitive skin  Which is tough, because I am a bit of a skin care junkie, lol. So though I enjoy trying new skin care and beauty products I often pay the price for doing so, which leads to the dreaded “skincare Break-up”!

Like many of you I have a busy life, were a military family, I’m a pet rescue mom, writer, poet, blogger, student and more. So I don’t often have time to linger in stores looking for skincare or beauty items so I do most of that type of shopping online and honestly I hate mall shopping!! Yes, I said it, I think I just lost some girl card points for saying it but I do kind of hate store shopping, lol. So If I can research a product, it’s ingredients and where it is made online, that’s awesome and if the product is also cruelty free, I’m a happy camper!

Well, Valentia more than meets those requirements! Like I said I was invited to try one of their new products earlier this year and was excited when I was invited to try another new product in their line the: Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer. Unlike the first product of Valentia’s I tried I wasn’t nervous this time, but excited to see what this product would do. The first product of theirs I tried led me to purchase a few other great products of theirs which I am now a happy repeat customer of.

Though I wasn’t someone that had acne issues growing up and honestly the only time I do break out is because of a new skincare, a new beauty product or even hair care product or I’ve been exposed to one such as when someone hugs you and yes this happens to me, see I have sensitive skin, lol… Anyway, I have some discoloration from old scarring from those moments I’ve just mentioned and since I’m a little older now, my skin is a bit duller, plus I have some redness. I figured the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer would moisturize and brighten my skin a bit, but I wasn’t sure how it would do on my redness and discoloration as some of the discoloration is a bit old. To my surprise, the Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer not only has been lightening my discoloration, but it really has been great for calming my skin and my redness. One thing I really like about the Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is that it can be used both as daytime and nighttime moisturizer, so it helps streamline my routine a bit.

Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer, even wears beautifully under my tinted spf moisturizer without being sticky, greasy or streaky, plus I find with my skin it absorbs well. I love how I can actually apply it right after I wash my face without the usual stinging I get from many other brands. I find that this moisturizer is rich, yet not heavy, at least not on my skin. Since I started using it my skin is soft and smooth even after washing, plus my skin has gone from dull too radiant too! We live in a snow state so I hope this will also be a great winter moisturizer, I’ll have to come back and update this review for winter.

The bottom line I’m really happy with the Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer, I really like the results I’ve gotten over the past 6 days and will continue to use. Really it’s a great buy on its own, it comes in a large bottle, I didn’t feel like I needed a whole lot, it was more like a little goes a long way, so that I another thing that makes me happy, as I don’t have to worry about running out so quickly.

I have struggled with dark circles most my life so another product for me that I really like of Valentia’s is their True Glow Eye Cream, it has worked great on my dark circles which I use daily and the results have been enough that I have gotten complements on it, that was a product I purchased on my own after I was invited to try Valentia’s Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask.

Anyway, I will continue to use the Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer, I hope my results will be even better than that of these past 6 days.

The Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is;
*Made in the USA
*Cruelty Free (so far all the products I’ve purchased or have been invited to try are)
