Campbells varieties

I received several products via +Crowdtap  and @Campbellsoups to try and write a review about.  The opinions in this post are solely mine and biased by companies nor the fact that I received free products.

I love Chicken noodle soup when I am sick and feeling under the weather, and Campbell's soups always make me feel better.  Growing up I always knew about their soups and now they have even more different varieties of soups.
Did you know that they not only have soups but they have dinner starters, spaghetti O's, and skillet dinners?  I was given several of their products to try and tell, and I used each and every product in a different way.   Some can be used to just fix a five minute deal and some are great for a starter base of the meal.  They are inexpensive, easy to use, and becuae they are in cans they have an awesome shelf life. 

If you haven't tried the different products from Campbell's then you really need to check them out.  For the busy Mom and Dad who rather spend more time with Family then these are great products and I still love the old faves like the tomato and chicken noodle soups.

Christmas Poem (Something we Should all Keep in MInd)

Twas the month before Christmas and all through the town
Not a sign of Baby Jesus was anywhere to be found.
The people were all busy with Christmas time chores
Like decorating and baking, and shopping in stores.
No one Sang "Away in the Manger, No crib for a bed".
Instead, they sang Santa dressed up in bright red.
Mama watched Martha Stewart, Papa drank beer from a tap.
As hour upon hour the presents they'd wrap.

When from the TV, did they suddenly hear?
'Crept an ad... Which told of a big sale at Sears.
So away to the mall they all flew like a flash...
Buying things on credit... and others with cash!
And, as they made their way home from their trip to the mall.
Did they think about Jesus? Oh, no...Not at all.
Their lives were so busy with their Christmas things
No time to rememberChrist Jesus, the King.
There were presents to wrap and cookies to bake.
How could they stop and remember who died for their sake?

To Pray to the Savior...they had no time to stop.
Because they needed more time to "Shop til they dropped!"
On Wal-mart! On K-mart! On target! On Penny's!
On Hallmark! On Zales! And a lunch at denny's
From the big stores downtown to the stores in the mall
They would dash away, dash away, and visit them all!
And up on the roof, there arose such a clatter
As grandpa hung icicle lights with his brand new step ladder.
He hung lights that would flash. He hung lights that would twirl.
Yet, he never once prayed to Jesus... Light of the World.
Christ's eyes...How they twinkle! Christ's Spirit. How merry!
Christ's Love...How enormous! All our burdens... He'll carry!
So instead o being busy, overworked, and uptight
Let's put Christ back in Christmas and enjoy same good nights!

Jesus Daily Review

I am a person that can use a little inspiration each day but I don't always know where to get it or what I need.  I was given The Jesus Daily to do a review on and let me tell you.  Though I started almost at the end of the book and only got to read a couple of weeks, I found a good way to start my day.  There is a daily inspiration for all 365 days of the year.  This is a book that once you have read it, you can just go back and get a little extra inspiration that day.
This past week has been one of the hardest weeks of my life because my 6 year old got the FLU.  It has taken a toll on not only her with 104+ temperatures but it has taken a toll on me, her Mama.  I have sat up about every night making sure she can breathe, and checking her temp to make sure she was OK.   Through all the troubles I have had this week I would find just one minute to read the daily devotion and trust me when I say that it helped, it helped. 
On December 14th 2003, I lost my 7 month old nephew.  It makes it hard this time of year, because you tend to think of the loved ones we lost and find it hard to remember the good times you had with them  Well, because of losing him around this time of year when one of my little ladies gets sick, I worry that it may be worse than I think and I can't seem to rest until they feel better.
While I have sat up these many nights, making sure my baby was OK I have not only just read my Jesus Daily devotion but I have skipped through and read a few others.  It helped guide me in my Bible studies and gave me hope when it appeared there was no Hope left in this world.  Everywhere we turn we see negativity in the world, and it doesn't appear that there is anyway to escape it.  It is on social media, the news, radio, and and even talked about in our schools making it almost impossible to avoid.  But with this book, if not but for a moment gave me a sense a of relief that I'm not alone and he is always with me guiding me in the path that I am on.

Now that I have told you my thoughts on the book, I have one that I would like to share with my readers.  All you have to do is follow Via GFC, and leave me a comment telling me the name you followed under.  Also Tell me what you do for a daily inspiration in this world of demise.  What gives you daily Hope, and understanding? That's it, and I will draw a Random winner on 12/22/14.
You may want to follow Southern Mom of 4 on Facebook so that you can see the winner when released!

What's for Dinner?

A little about McCall:
McCall Farms is a family-owned, 170 year-old company based in Effingham, SC. They gather their crops from all over South Carolina, North Carolina and other southern states.  McCall Farms produces more than 40 different products under the Margaret Holmes®, Glory Foods®, Bruce Yams® and Peanut Patch® brands, as well as private-label and foodservice products, which are sold nationwide.
Do you use canned goods when you are cooking your Thanksgiving or yet to come Christmas dinner?  I have to admit that I do, you can find some really great ideas using canned goods and it saves time, money, and sanity when you have a big family like I do.
McCall Farms offers some awesome food in a can, and I not only use them at big events such as Christmas but I also use them daily.  The food is fresh and can be used right out of the can or you can add a little something to it to make it semi-homemade.  I have to admit I love fresh out of the garden foods but I can take a can of collards, cook me some ham, add the can collards and they are just as good if not better than homemade.  A little salt,a dash of pepper, and it's a meal in less the time and you savage your sanity with more time to spend with your family and friends.
Now for the fun part, they are hosting a cooking contest.  You can get all the information here, go enter for your chance to win big.  There are 25 days left to enter so hurry and get your recipes ready and get entered! Because the winner will be selected by the number of votes your recipe gets, you need to get it out there ASAP so people can vote. 
Good Luck to each of you.
