Looking for a tasty meal for Meatless Monday? Try this Portabella Mushroom Pizzas recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.I always check the discount produce rack when I’m grocery shopping. The produce is marked down incredibly since its fate is either the garbage or the discount rack. Recently, I found portabella mushroom caps that were 75% off. Of course, I grabbed them. Instantly, my mind went to portabella mushroom pizzas. It was a great Meatless Monday meal. And one that was pretty easy to make too.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burger From Burgabox

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burger From Burgabox

#ad Looking for a tasty dinner idea? Try the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) BurgaBox. Get a review of it from www.drugstoredivas.net.

It was a Friday during Lent when a huge box of meat arrived at our doorstep. My plan was just to put the whole thing in the fridge and wait a few days, but it doesn’t work like that. Burgabox does not send a box that’s fridge sized. Instead, it sends enough food to feed four people once, then two people for a few more days during the week.

So, finally, after abstaining from meat on Friday, then waiting a Saturday (because we had dinner plans), my parents came over on a Sunday to check out the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) BurgaBox.

Let’s chat about Burgabox for a minute. It’s a subscription box that’s not for the faint of heart. It comes with 8 oz. burgers (either two or four, depending on what you order), French fries, and macaroni and cheese. Plus, all the toppings you could ever want on a burger. And then, because that might not be enough, you also get baked beans and coleslaw.

Our toppings were (okay, are you ready for this?), macaroni and cheese, pulled pork, an onion ring, pickles, and BBQ sauce. For a minute it seems like a lot, and when you get all that on top of your burger, it also looks like a lot. But when you take a bite, everything goes together to give a bite of the most perfect burger.

In addition to all the ingredients, you also get instructions on cooking and assembly, which is very helpful.

What You’ll Need:

  • Everything you need is included in the Burgabox that is sent to you

What You’ll Do:

Heat up your charcoal grill and grill your burgers. Now, okay. This is the only way we deviated from the instructions in the box. It says to cook your burgers in a pan. I know this actually is a method to cook the burger in its own fat and juices, filling it with flavor. But, it’s basically summer here. And in the summer, you can’t beat a burger from the grill.

Oh, we put the buns on the grill too. But, I mean, a burger in summer. It’s basically sac-relig to not, right?

While your burger is grilling, cook your toppings.

Heat up your pulled pork, then your macaroni and cheese, according to the package. Do the same with the onion rings.

#ad Looking for a tasty dinner idea? Try the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) BurgaBox. Get a review of it from www.drugstoredivas.net.

Then, start building your burger. Put the burger on the bottom, followed by the macaroni and cheese, the pulled pork, the onion ring, the pickles, and a healthy drizzle of BBQ sauce. Finish it with the top bun.

Now, let’s chat about multitasking for a minute. You’re going to want to serve this with the accompanying baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and French fries. Each one has a different cooking time and temperature, so you have to do a little bit of juggling and time management to make sure everything comes out of the oven warm.

With the four pack, we got four burgers and all the toppings, plus Buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese, and garlic Parmesan fries. The macaroni and cheese was amazing. I have a mac and cheese obsession, and this definitely filled my need. There were huge slices of chicken, plus a great amount of bleu cheese crumbles on it. I actually ate the leftovers for dinner the next two nights.

We had leftovers of the burgers too, mostly because my mom and I decided to split one.

The fries were so good — but not leftovers. Sad. It came with a canister of the topping, which I could have eaten by the spoonful. If I could buy just that and lather it top on everything I make for the rest of my life, I would be a happy girl.

The 2-person/burger meal is $65 and the four person is $75. For an extra $10, it’s absolutely worth it. That ends up being about $19 a person. That’s almost what you’d spend for a dinner out. Granted, there you wouldn’t have to cook for yourself, but Pete and I did all the cooking, so my parents had a night out. For the two pack, it’s $32.50 each, and that’s a bit more than we generally spend getting burgers and sides at a restaurant here. Remember, though, you’re paying to quality and quantity. You get a lot of food for that price. Also, it’s good food delivered fresh. The company actually only ships Monday through Wednesday so that the product gets to you by Friday. It won’t ship later in the week and risk your fresh, on ice packs, ingredients sitting in a warehouse over the weekend.

To help you out, if you pick up the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burgabox, you can save $10 with the code DIVAS10.

I think it’s a perfect housewarming gift idea. It’s a great way for new home owners to break in their new kitchens. I’d say it’s a good idea for when you have company over too, but it depends on your company. You need to invite over some burger lovers with big appetites.

Now, the WTF burger was my top choice, but it’s not the only one Burgabox carries. There are a ton of pre-made boxes you can choose from. If you’re more adventurous, go with the subscription. Once a month, you’ll get a Burgabox delivered straight to your door. Each month has a different theme. March, for example, was Irish-themed with Guinness-soaked meats and Irish potatoes.

For the burger lover, that’s a perfect gift idea.

Would you purchase a Burgabox?

How To Be A Tourist In Your Own City

How To Be A Tourist In Your Own City

Drugstore Divas received the sweatshirt in this How To Be A Tourist In Your Own City shirt.

Can't get away? Don't worry. You can still be a tourist in your own city. Find out how at www.drugstoredivas.net.

We are going away for spring break this year, which is new for us. We usually just turn the week into a staycation. I’m excited to get away, even though it’s only for half the week. The other half, we’ll be playing tourist at home. Have you done this? It’s actually a lot of fun, plus it’s a lot cheaper on the wallet than actually going  on a trip. To help you plan, we put together this how to be a tourist in your own city post.

How To Be A Tourist In Your Own City

Start at your city’s tourist bureau.
Most cities will have a tourist bureau to give information to out-of-towners. You can use this for yourself, though. Most of the time, when people go out in their own cities, it’s for dinner at a familiar restaurant. Or maybe you go to a park you love. People tend to go to the same places. If you go to your city’s tourist bureau, you can get ideas for places you may have forgotten about or may have never been.

Ours also has an entire section for freebies for local residents. Many of our local museums offer a residents day where anyone in the county can visit for free. Definitely work some free attractions into your schedule so you can save some money.

Pack a camera.
When you’re on vacation, you tend to break out the large camera (at least, we do; I know most people just rely on their phones). Don’t forget your camera when you’re a hometown tourist. Act like a tourist and take photos of historical landmarks, famous buildings, your dinner, etc. Anything that you would shoot when you’re out of town, shoot when you’re in town.

Go out to eat at a tourist spot.
We live at a beach town, so we have a couple very tourist-y seafood buffets that we always pass. You know, the ones with an oversized crab greeting you as you drive by. Stop in there, and see what the tourists eat. Don’t go to your little hole in the wall, off the beaten path, local joint. Go right in the mix of bathing suits and beach towels (or your town’s equivalent). 

Book a hotel.
The only time we stayed in a hotel in our city was the day after we got married. We had a room booked at the hotel where our reception was. Other than that, we’ve never slept in our city. If we were playing hometown tourist, I would definitely book us a hotel for a night. Pick a hotel with free breakfast and coffee in the room. That way, it feels like a vacation. Plus, we would be able to take our time leaving the next morning.

Can't get away? Don't worry. You can still be a tourist in your own city. Find out how at www.drugstoredivas.net.

Pack a bag.
You want to be prepared for anything when you’re out and about. Sure, you can probably easily run home between day and night activities, and that is a perk of vacationing in your own city, but pack a bag and make it feel like you’re out of town. Put in a sweatshirt and long pants, so if you get cold, you have clothes with you. That’s what I did recently. We were out exploring our area and I had the Native Sun Bird Wide Neck Sweatshirt from Vibration Apparel. I actually am obsessed with this shirt. It’s really lightweight, so perfect for spring, and incredibly soft inside. Pete wanted to claim it as his own actually, but the wide neck wasn’t for him.

Chicken Salad BLT

Chicken Salad BLT

Looking for an amazing sandwich? Check out this Chicken Salad BLT from www.drugstoredvas.net.

I was in a coffee shop not too long ago and a tasty sandwich caught my eye: a chicken salad BLT. The sandwich was so tiny, though, and expensive for its size, plus I couldn’t be sure how fresh it actually was.

I passed up on it and decided to buy all the ingredients to make it at home.

I’m not even exaggerating when I say this was the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten. I’m planning on making it weekly; it was that good.

Put a heaping amount of the chicken/mayo mixture onto one of the slices. Close the sandwich and enjoy.

You can actually save the rest of the bacon grease in the fridge and use it instead of olive oil when you’re cooking in the future. I actually don’t do that because I forget about it every time. I always cook other components of the same meal in the bacon grease though, like this.

Tips For Putting Together An Easter Basket At Kmart

Tips For Putting Together An Easter Basket At Kmart

This Tips For Putting Together An Easter Basket post is sponsored by Kmart.

You can put together a great Easter basket with items from Kmart. Get tips from www.drugstoredivas.net.

Kmart is one of my favorite stores because you can pick up everything there. Our local store sells everything from wine to window cleaner, clothes to candy, plus really cute Adirondack chairs that are perfect in our garage. It’s one stop shopping, so you can run in for milk and leave with makeup for a night out. Anything you want, you can find at Kmart. And that’s why it’s a great place to go for your Easter basket needs too.

Tips For Putting Together An Easter Basket At Kmart

Start with candy.
Kmart has so much Easter candy,  you’ll be sure to find your recipients’ favorites there. You can pick up packs of marshmallows, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, and more. Plus,  you can get really good prices on them too. Through April 8,  you can get an Easter 6-pack candy or Lindt Gold Bunny on sale for $2.50. From April 9 to 15, you can get Easter packaged chocolates on sale for $1.50 on sale.

Personally,  I’m a fan of mixing some candy with some chocolate. A little variety goes a long way.

Add something non-chocolate.
The age of your recipient will determine what else you add to the basket. For a young child, check out the toy section. You can also pick up art supplies. For a teen with a new car, you can head to Kmart’s automotive section. For your mom, you can check out their gardening section. There’s really something fun for everyone.

A really cute idea would be to add an Easter outfit in the basket as well. Kmart has a ton of Easter outfits for boys and girls, plus super cute new shoes too. For older kids, you can pick out a cute top instead of a full outfit.

Use your points.
Part of why I really love Kmart is because of Shop Your Way rewards. When you make a purchase, you earn a certain percentage back in Shop Your Way points. You are then able to use those points on future purchases (be sure to check Shop Your Way for all terms and conditions). Now through May 1, you can earn 25% in points with a $10+ of Smart Sense food and drug products at Kmart. Smart Sense is one of Kmart’s private label brands. We have so many Smart Sense products in our home right now, and they’re really great quality items.

Want to win?
We are giving one lucky winner a $100 Kmart gift card. I wish I could keep it for myself because there is so much I could stock up on. Instead, one Drugstore Divas reader will be the lucky one.

DIY Washi Tape Easter Eggs

DIY Washi Tape Easter Eggs

Looking for a fun Easter craft? Check out these DIY Washi Tape Easter Eggs from www.drugstoredivas.net.My mom loves washi tape. She has done so many cute projects with them since her love affair began. Her most recent project was washi tape Easter eggs.

They came out really cute looking, and she said they were really easy and fun too. That’s the good thing about working with washi tape. It’s really easy and forgiving. If you place it and you’re a little off, you can just pick it up and lay it down again. Or if you finish and want to change part of the pattern, you can do that easily too.

Washi Tape Easter Eggs

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

Cut a long strip of washi tape, and affix it on to your egg. If your strip is a little too long, you could either tuck it under other pieces of tape or cut it.

Cut another strip of tape and stick it next to the first piece. Continue around until you cover the entire egg.

Then, use smaller pieces of washi over the larger pieces to create the design my mom did.

That’s it. The end. Simple.
