Date Night Dinner: Chili's Black Bean Burger with Mushrooms on a Whole Wheat Bun. Came with lettuce, tomato slice, and pickles. But, I only ate the smaller half of the wheat bun. The meal was supposed to come with french fries, but I ordered steamed broccoli instead. The meal was filling and delicious. There was probably more oil on the meal than I would have used had I made it myself, but it was so nice to have a date night with my husband.
Where were you? I had just dropped off my daughter at her middle school for the day and was driving back to the house. I heard a blip of news on the radio about a plane hitting a tower in New York. I got home and turned on the tv to see what had happened. I watched the news replaying the plane flying into the tower again and again. I still remember the sick horror and intense fear that gripped my soul as I watched with my own eyes as the second plane hit the second tower. I felt so small and helpless. I watched people jump from the towers to their death at the same time I saw heroes running into the buildings. I watched the first tower explode, rain down in a shower of death, and completely collapse into the ground. I remember the pure shock that left my mouth wide open and my hands over my heart. The plume of smoke and dust that rose up from the concrete, with all the evil of hell inside of it, swallowed the people who were desperately trying to run away from the falling tower. I remember how deeply my heart was ripped apart as I sat there watching the second tower begin to fall and I wondered if the world was ending. I saw and watched it happen, live, and I wonder how long I really held my breath.
Then I heard about the plane that hit the Pentagon. And then I heard the news about the plane that went down in a field, that was headed towards the White House. I remember thinking maybe every plane in the United States was destined to crash that day. I became glued to the tv and watched the news reports for hours at a time. I watched the news replay the towers falling day after day, month after month. I was scared, I was mad, I was depressed, I was sick. It was very difficult to deal with and even harder to explain to my young kids, ten and six at the time, but slowly my heart began to heal a little.

I've said repeatedly that the economy is going to get worse before it gets better. Money gets harder to come by every day. I'm always looking for ways to tighten the belt just a little more. Freebies are my favorite of course, because they cost me nothing and I usually spend hours online looking for offers for free samples. Lucky for me I found yoFreeSamples.com! They deliver daily deals to me via my email inbox and Facebook. Coupons and contests come right to me and I don't even need to hunt them down. I can't tell you how much time I've saved by signing up for programs like this. I have saved a lot of money by using coupons at stores that will double (sometimes even triple) coupon values. By combining coupons I get from yoFreeSamples.com with current sales at my local stores, I make a considerable dent in my weekly grocery bills, plus I save a ton on health and beauty items, detergents, and paper products. Free Stuff is often offered by companies that are new or that are trying to create some buzz about a new product or product line, so I keep my eyes open for those opportunities in my email too. I always prefer to get my coupons online because I can live "green" by only printing the ones I know I'm going to use!

Sweet Tomatoes has no ordinary salad bar. After paying for our drinks, we raided the baked potato bar and grabbed some fresh blueberry muffins and honey butter. I had to grab a small dish of mac'n'cheese too! That's a diet soda though, because I'm watching my weight.
GIVEAWAY - One winner will win dinner for two at any Sweet Tomatoes restaurant. You must be at least 18 years old to enter and win, and as always must be a Planet Weidknecht follower via email, RSS or GFC. To enter, leave a comment below and tell me the name of your favorite salad ingredient! Giveaway ends on September 16 at midnight. Winner selected by random.org. Good luck!
Somali-born author Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one of the most controversial women on earth. For years, she has been forced to live in hiding; her life has been threatened numerous times; an anti-Koran script that she wrote provoked the assassination of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh; and a dispute over her citizenship indirectly brought down the Dutch government. This memoir about her family’s travails living under strict fundamentalist Islamic precepts tracks the evolution of a world-changing radical feminist.
