Meet Me at the Corner-site for kids.

Children can have an interview with the Park Ranger at Balboa Park in San Diego, California, learn about the history of Balboa Park, the Pan America Exhibition, and a bit about the work of a park ranger.

Along with the original content created by the professional staff, MEET ME AT THE CORNER is open to kid- produced content. The current video was submitted by 11 year old Sam. How cool is that!! He interviews an animal behaviorist at the Denver Zoo. It is obvious that the episode was written and filmed by Sam but the MMATC staff did a great job of editing and adding photos and links to take the episode to a new level.

MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids is a series of educational video podcasts for kids ages 6-12. New episodes are uploaded every two weeks, with a Learning Corner of questions and extended activities, a list of recommended books and links to fun websites about each topic.

This is a great website for kids, parents, teachers and homeschool families.

Thank you- My Atlanta Mommy!

Great Qdoba Coupon!

 We decided to have Qdoba for dinner on Friday-I was thinking-wouldn't it be great if Qdoba had a coupon on their site???  Guess what-they do!!!  It is actually kind of fun to get too.  You get to build your own entree, I built something I usually don't order-a ground beef taco salad and it looked and sounded so good after my virtual creation that I ordered it!  It was GREAT!  Not only did I "build" a great dinner I also was able to print a buy one entree get the second FREE!  It expired 9/19-so they are only good for a couple of days.  It is still working today, I am not sure how long this is going to be good so now is the time to enjoy Qdoba! (Anytime is good, but with a deal like this there is no time like the present!)

Yummy Weekend Recipe using Ragu Old World Style Traditional Sauce

Did you hear that Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce has 2 servings of vegetables in every half cup! (Available soon in every major retailer-check your local store!)

The Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce has a thicker taste and is very versatile-we used it in our Uncooked Noodle Lasagna in a Slow Cooker! It was delicious! Honestly we have made this recipe before with other sauces and this time it was thicker and tastier! As my oldest put it-not too sweet, not too tart, it was just right!  (My husband and I were critiquing the sauce and she jumped on the the conversation-kids really do say the funniest things!)

Here is our recipe:

Uncooked Noodle Lasagna in a Slow Cooker

20 minutes of preparation time

Cook time: 5 hours and 10 minutes

20 minutes to sit


1 pound lean ground beef

1 onion, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce (we used one 1lb. 10 ounce container of the Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce)

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 (12 ounce) package lasagna noodles

12 ounces cottage cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


Over medium heat (large skillet) cook the ground beef, onion, and garlic until brown. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt, and oregano and stir until well mixed. Cook until heated through.

In a large bowl mix together the cottage cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Spoon a layer of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the slow cooker. Add a double layer of the uncooked lasagna noodles. Break to fit noodles into slow cooker. Top noodles with a portion of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layering of sauce, noodles, and cheese until all the ingredients are used. Cover, and cook on LOW setting for 4 to 6 hours.

***Keep in mind some slow cookers are a bit different, we gave this recipe to a friend and they said 4 1/2 hours was good.

If you give this a try let us know! It is one of our favorites!

Check out Ragu Sauce on Facebook-you can find out more about their new sauces and check out some great recipes!

Don't forget to sweeten this family meal by checking to see if you can save a little money on the deal! Check our Coupon Database for possible coupons on everything you need for this meal!

Disclosure: We were entered for a chance to win a Ragú® prize package in exchange for posting about Ragu Sauce. No monetary exchange took place, we did not receive any free products either. The recipe was passed down from my mother!
