Oprah and KFC Feed America

It happened today. I watched an entire episode of Oprah.

I used to be a die hard Oprah watcher, but I honestly don't think I have caught an episode...even part of one...in maybe 18 months or more. I'm not an Oprah hater nor do I agree with all of her views, but my lack of watching centers more around the viewing preferences of a certain four year old whom I've grown to love. One who no longer naps and ranks Oprah way below Word Girl, Clifford, or even Barney for that matter.

Anyhow, this afternoon around 4PM all the stars aligned (that would be Oprah's view, not mine ;)), and I was in a clean quiet house and actually thought to turn it on. Jade was taking a long nap and Lily was playing at a neighbor's house, so it was just me and Oprah.

And right away I was glad I tuned in. She is partnering up with KFC to give everyone in America a free meal. Just go to this page on her website to print your coupons for their new grilled chicken, two sides and a biscuit...enough for a family of four. You have to download the coupons by 10 PM Wednesday, May 6th and use them by Wednesday, May 19th.

They aren't valid on Mother's Day though...as Oprah said, "on that day, you gotta buy your own mama's meal!"

Works for me! This week was the "frugal" edition on Works For Me Wednesday, and I can't think of anything that is more frugal than free food.

To see what is working for everyone else, click over to WFMW headquarters at We Are THAT Family.

I was pleasantly surprised as well by watching Oprah, yesterday. Ok, I didn't watch yesterday, I DVR'd it because WORDGIRL rules over here too! Then I can skip all the commercials. I just LOVED the singer guy. I cried so hard for him.
I'm not really a huge O fan, some of her shows drive me nuts...
But I'm looking forward to our free meal at KFC. :)

I tried to print the coupon yesterday and it wouldn't let me. I just tried again, and it tells me to come back later and try again. I don't think they want me to get my free chicken. :(

Oh well, I'll try again in a few minutes. Thanks for the reminder!

I went to KFC today to get my free grilled chicken meal... I waited in line for over forty five minutes. I figured I'd stick it out because I was waiting for my free Mother's Day 8x10 to print across the street at Walgreens. When it was all said and done, they gave me a wing and a leg... they were supposed to give me a thigh and a leg but oh well. It was pretty tasty though!
