Winner, Winner, Chicken DInner

I'm a buzz agent.  Don't know what that is?  Well, you get free products from different companies, and they ask you to try them and then "buzz" about it to your friends.  It's not some mystery shop thing, they want  you to tell everyone that you got it free, and what you really thought about it.  I've gotten some really cool things over the years.  We got a Sonicare toothbrush, green cleaning supplies, various food items from Dillon's/Kroger . . . I'm sure there are others, but I'm not thinking of them now.

Anyway, this summer we got a free Kroger/Dillon's deli chicken dinner to try.  This week we had Bible School in the evenings, and I'm the co-director.  Bible school starts at 6:30, so most nights, I need to be there no later than 6.  Also, Ellie is in the community theatre play, and the production is this weekend.  Her practices start no later than 6:30 each evening, and sometimes earlier.  Talk about a busy week!  Add several jobs into the mix, and supper time could just be a time when we pass each other in the kitchen or on our way out the door.  But, at least one night this week, we sat down together and ate supper.  The chicken was good and fresh.  I know fried chicken for every meal wouldn't be healthy, but once in awhile it's ok.  We also had a coupon for free chips and a free bottle of coke. We added carrots and fruit and had a quick, well rounded meal.  Everything was tasty and we enjoyed some good family time together!

If you're interested in being a buzz agent (they have campaigns for almost anything == right now there are campaigns for wine, heart burn relief,  olive oil, shoe cushions and more -- let me know and I'll send you an invitation to join!
