Guinness Beans Recipe and More over at Yummy Mummy Club-Plus a Winner!

What's been happening over at Yummy Mummy Club?

-Should sugar be regulated like alcohol?  Some scientists think so.  I disagree.  Hop on over and weigh in!

-Since I started my new job that has me outside running around playing Frisbee golf, running and being active, I've had to pack myself a better lunch.  Find out my lunch tips for parents!

Exclusive recipes:

Guinness Beans

These Guinness Beans are a huge favourite in our house, with my teenager declaring them the best beans he's ever eaten.  The bonus is that they are cooked in the slowcooker, which makes things SO easy.

Chicken, Bacon, Arugula Sandwich

We're also big sandwich fans-I made these chicken and bacon sandwiches with arugula mayo over Christmas holidays, and they were declared the very best ever.  Lots of amazing flavour!  You could make your own mayo, or just buy some for a short cut.  Whatever you do, you have to make them!

If you are looking for a way to spice up your carrots for a side dish, you have to make these cumin and citrus roasted carrots.  Topped with lemon and clementines, they are a favourite in our house with roasted meats and in a delicious salad that will be up on Chasing Tomatoes this week.

Check out the new Becel Heart Healthy Prize Pack.  Make a pledge and you could win a prize pack worth $1800!

The winner for that gift certificate for Carderos or the Painted Boat has been chosen, I'm just waiting for an email back so I can confirm before I announce.  

Happy Wednesday!  Only a few more days and then Kevin and I are off to motorcycle school...and I'll be blogging the entire thing.
