Once Again Nut Butter #MomsMeet

 

I love to cook, making food is my passion. I especially like to make things that are healthy or organic. I love knowing I am making foods that won’t harm my family. This is why I was so excited to try Once Again Nut Butter. This butter is gluten free so I can eat it without feeling guilty. I love that this company is employee owned.

 

I received the box with a variety of the kinds of butter, and laminated recipes books loaded with amazing recipes.

The first recipe I tried was Cashew bread. It was amazing! The flavor was better than I could have imagined and it made my home smell so good.

Cashew Bread 1 cup Once Again Organic Cashew Butter 5 large eggs 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt In a food processor, pulse together cashew butter & eggs until very smooth. Pulse in Apple cider vinegar. Pulse in baking soda & salt. Transfer batter to a greased 9 x 5-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool for 2 hours. Wrap in a paper towel, seal in a plastic bag. Refrigerate up to a week.

The next item I tried was the Trail  Mix Cookies using the recipe from the book.

 

Preheat oven to 350 °.
Place all ingredients together in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Mix on medium speed till well incorporated.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto a parchment- lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes; Until cookies are set but still soft.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Don’t forget to share!☺

The were so chewy and flavorful, I am now converted. These flavors of Once Again Nut Butters can be used for so many items.

Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl Duo #ninjakitchen

I love having everything I need in the kitchen readily available. Especially because most evenings I am so busy trying to get supper ready. Of course, my kitchen space is small so what I keep on my counter must be multi-purpose. This why I love my new Nutri Ninja & Bowl Duo….

Having one item that does so many functions is a life saver. It makes my life easy and in turn saves me time. It can make smoothies, you can use it to extract, use it for a fusion mix, fusion chop, and fusion dough.  This one item can help make your entire meal.

 

I love the AutoIQ Boost option. Using this breaks down all the ingredients which help the consistency of the item. If you like it thicker then choose no. The set comes with a recipe book that offers 75 recipes! I love how it not only tells you what ingredients to add but which options on your ninja to use.

 

You can make everything from milkshakes, smoothies, to meals. There are so many options to use this for. I tried the BLT salad and several other recipes. I am in love. I actually feel like a pro in the kitchen.  You can find all their recipes here: http://www.ninjakitchen.com/recipes/filter?q=&sort=Newest&tags=148

Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan, with Micro-Blade Noise Reduction Technology

This year is the year I turn the big 50 and my hubby turns the big 60. I am not sure where the time went, but I can say I wouldn’t have changed a thing. We have fun and are usually very active together. The only thing I have noticed lately is how hot I am all the time. I am dreading those ugly words “hot flashes”…

My poor husband is the complete opposite lately, he is cold all the time, so while he crawls under the blankets, I am kicking them off. We fight over the fan on or off and over the air conditioner setting. So to resolve this issue, I use the Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan, with Micro-Blade Noise Reduction Technology. This fan has been a life saver, I put it on my side of the bed and sleep like a baby. This fan is so quiet it doesn’t even bother my husband! It comes with a remote that I can control from bed!!

Maroon Ball /Prom with the Husband… 30ish years Late! On a budget!!

My husband and I were recently invited to a ball / fund raiser for our local school district. We were told it would be a formal event. I was excited, you see my husband and I are not spring chickens anymore. I will be 50 this year and he will be 60. We met when I was 30ish and have been married for 17 years. So needless to say we never got to go to the prom together.

I decided I was going to go all out and get nails, makeup, hair and a dress. The problem is we are on the Dave Ramsey plan and budget our money for months out. We do have an emergency stash but this hardly counts for an emergency! So I decided to be very frugal and make it fun.

My daughter always questions my spending habits stating you have money… My response “I have responsibilities and that comes before spending anything else”.  So for my nails, I post on a local page who can do nails for a great price and had a bidding war. I got this full set for 25.00. I love them! I am going to San Antonio this weekend to a concert and have the cutest nails!! So I figure they were worth it.

Next was makeup, I asked around and found that Dillards does make up for free, of course, the catch is they want you to purchase something. Well since I was out of foundation and needed some, I was willing to buy the Clinique foundation for 30.00 as long as I got a makeover!

Now for the hair. I posted looking for someone to do an updo on a local facebook for sale site and the bidding started. I finally got someone who said I will do it for 25.00 (seemed to be my number!). So I was excited, I took pictures of what I wanted and she did an amazing job! So at this point, I am out 50.00 (the makeup was budgeted since I already needed some).

Now for the dress. I went everywhere, my daughter wanted me to have a pretty dress regardless of the cost. I, on the other hand, knew this wasn’t an option. So alone I went to a local resale shop on 1/2 off day and bought a $5.00 dress. YES, $5.00, of course, I needed it altered so I went back to facebook, and found a lady to do it for $15.00. I also had to get 3″ let out on my husbands pants, since his suit was nice but just a “little” too tight. She did both for $30.00. I found him a tie at the thrift store for $1.00! So now we are at $81.00.

The best part was, I had the jewelry from my daughter’s prom and shoes from a different occasion.  We had an amazing time, got professional pictures done FREE! Ate a steak dinner danced the night away, and yes since it was a grown up prom, and open bar was available.

I think I had as much fun saving us money as I did actually going. It was so fun dressing up!! Overall, it was so worth it. I feel like we had our prom and the fun memories to go with it! I felt like a princess with my prince.

 

Ozeri All-in-One Baby and Toddler Scale with Weight and Height Change Detection #OZERI

Congratulations, you are having a baby….

I remember those words like they were yesterday. Now I have 3 grandsons. I remember the one question that I have never been able to answer and that was when someone would ask me how much does he weigh now or how tall is he. Unless I had recently been to the doctor, I didn’t know. So I would “guestimate”. Usually wrong!! I love the Ozeri All-in-One Baby and Toddler Scale with Weight and Height Change Detection I am able to know exactly how much those grandsons have gained and how much taller they are each week. I know as a new parent this will be awesome, you stress over them losing weight before you leave the hospital and don’t really know for a few weeks till you go for your first check up how they are doing. This will save you from stressing!!

 

Product Description

The Ozeri All-In-One Baby and Toddler Scale combines weight and height measurement technology, built-in memory, age and gender specific growth charts, and a bonus head circumference measuring tape to provide everything needed to confidently monitor a child’s growth. The Ozeri All-In-One Scale precisely weighs to within 0.1 oz. (0.01 lbs. or 0.005 kg), with a maximum weight capacity of 55 lbs. / 25 kg, for best-in-class accuracy, and features built-in memory for up to 8 unique infant profiles with auto-recognition technology. It also stores up to 15 weigh-ins for each infant profile so that you can monitor and track growth data in between doctor’s visits. The Ozeri All-In-One Scale also utilizes a sliding measurement board that digitally captures an infant’s height, from 18.1 to 31.5 inches (in), or 46 to 80 centimeters (cm), with a precise graduation of 0.1 in / or 1 mm (0.1 cm). Featuring net change detection, the Ozeri All-In-One Scale instantly displays an infant’s current weight and height, and the net change in weight and height since the most recent measurement. The Ozeri All-In-One Scale includes a Unit button that conveniently switches weight and height measurements between kg-cm / lb.-in / oz.-in / lb:oz-in, and a Tare button that instantly subtracts the weight of diapers or clothing, for accurate net weight determination. The Ozeri scale is also equipped with a convenient Hold button that quickly captures weight and height measurements with a moving infant. Fully equipped, the Ozeri All-In-One Baby and Toddler Scale includes AAA batteries, an accessory measuring tape for measuring head circumference, and easy-to-read growth charts from both the World Health Organization and the CDC, with age and gender specific charts.

You are not only able to log weekly weight and height but think how cute it would be to post it on social media with the monthly sticker.

Sun Basket Meals Gluten Free Roasted Pork Chops Recipe #sunbasket

Roasted Pork Chops with Sweet Potato hash and cilantro pesto

 

I am so excited, I received my Sun Basket meals today and already made the first meal!! Roasted pork chops with sweet potato hash and cilantro pesto, I am not a master chef but this was super easy and so yummy!!  I received three meals in separate bags, the meat was at the bottom of the box in ice packs.

 

 

I have to admit I was a little worried because I and the kitchen aren’t always friends. I like simple and can cook simple meals great. Like growing up in South Georgia, I learned how to make fried foods, mashed potatoes, and brown gravy. So trying new things is a little scary for me. The Sun Basket Meals can be ordered and delivered to your door with everything you will need to make a meal!!

Right now you get three meals free with your order!!

 

 

This was a little out of my comfort zone, so imagine my hubby’s surprise when he came home to this gourmet meal I cooked! He thought I spent all day in the kitchen making this!!

 

 

These ingredients made the perfect size meal for my hubby and I. We loved the flavor and how easy it was to make! I was able to make it within 25 minutes and it tasted amazing! The flavors together are amazing, I would never have thought I could make something so good and pretty!

 

 

Each recipe has fresh organic ingredients and easy recipes delivered, with Paleo, Gluten-free and Vegetarian options.

You have a step by step guide to walk you through exactly what to do! I love knowing I had all the ingredients I needed. I hate when I want to make something and do not have everything I need!
