It’s my 116th post! And I’m giving something away!

November 7, 2011 Off By Jana

My life has become an insane mess of crazy lately. Remember how I said I was going to take some time off from teaching? Well, I might have changed my mind. I did so because I have two nonmortgage debts left to pay off and teaching this class will mean that I will have to use less of my savings to finish paying off one of them next month. Since the class will end before my trip to Disney World, which is the main reason why I turned down the others, I decided to suck it up and teach.

When you combine the teaching with the personal things I have going on (not to mention that I will be taking yoga classes two nights a week), my life is getting out of hand. However, one constant in my life is the fact that we need to eat. I have become enamored with Erin Chase, The $5 Dollar Dinner Mom. I absolutely love her recipes–they’re easy, practical, use normal ingredients, don’t take more than 45 minutes to make and are inexpensive (she takes her name very seriously). If it were not for her cookbooks and website, I believe my family would not eat. Seriously.

So I’ve decided that I need to share her books with the world (and by world, I mean those of you who read this blog). Yes, it’s time for the very first Daily Money Shot giveaway! I’m giving away copies of both of Erin’s books to one lucky winner.
